California State University, Dominguez Hills


Recommended Posts

California State University, Dominguez Hills, was founded in 1960; however, the campus sits on land with a long and rich history. The university's 346 acres were once a section of the first private land grant in Southern California—the Rancho San Pedro. Juan José Dominguez (1736-1809), a Spanish soldier, received the original grant of 75,000 acres in 1784 from King Carlos III of Spain. While much of the acreage has been sold and developed, portions remain in possession of Dominguez descendants. The site chosen for the university was known as the Dominguez Hills, named after the family.

Academic buildings are critical to providing the foundational programs identified in the 1963 statewide master plan for higher education, including the sciences, business administration, education, and liberal arts. However, at CSU Dominguez Hills, such buildings are more than 40 years old. Since 2009, CSU Dominguez Hills has received no new state-funded buildings. Also, none of the temporary buildings from the 1960s have been replaced, and over the last 25 years, only two new state-funded buildings, Welch Hall and the Library addition, have been added to the campus. Foundational programs essential to high-quality academic instruction primarily reside in buildings constructed between 1963 and 1977 or in temporary buildings purchased by the campus.
In order to best position the university to leverage our unique land assets and generate additional revenue that can assist in financing and renovating academic buildings and support other academic instructional needs, the university recently partnered with AEG (operator of sports and entertainment venues around the world, including the StubHub Center on land leased from the university) and the City of Carson to engage the Urban Land Institute (ULI). ULI is comprised of accomplished developers, real estate specialists, economic development consultants, architects, academics, and other land-use professionals to assess and provide expert, independent, timely, and unbiased input on university land development plans and opportunities via an approach referred to as a Technical Advisory Panel (TAP).
