Miscellaneous Benefits

Employee Recognition Programs

The university has created programs to recognize the outstanding contributions of staff and administrators. Awards include the President's Outstanding Employee Award, President's Special Achievement Award, President's Team Achievement Award and the Divisional Distinguished Service Award. Other recognition programs include the Probationary Award, Service Awards, and Retirement Recognition.

Fee Waivers

The CSU Fee Waiver and Reduction Program entitles eligible employees (which may be transferred to an eligible dependent child, spouse, or domestic partner) to an application fee waiver and fees waived for 2 classes or 6 units (whichever is greater) at any CSU campus.

Rideshare Program

CSUSB's Rideshare Program encourages employees to use alternative methods of transportation in an effort to reduce smog and improve air quality. This program is coordinated by the Commuter Services Department.

Lactation Room

California passed AB 1025, the Lactation Accommodation Law in 2001, which provides workplace support for mothers who are breastfeeding. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) was signed into law in 2010 and requires that employers provide break time to nursing mothers to express milk for nursing their child.

In order to support our nursing mothers and their children, CSUSB provides private space and reasonable break time for lactating mothers express milk or nurse their child. These spaces are located at various locations throughout the campus. Some spaces do require reservation. Please note that we do not offer equipment or refrigerator space.

Employees are encouraged to work with the Human Resources Department and their appropriate administrator for assistance.
