Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
Fresno State is committed to the practice of education as a means of strengthening our community and our region. Fresno State alumni are among the top leaders of our community, and our current students are the leaders of tomorrow. Nestled in the center of California, in one of the richest agricultural valleys on the planet and one of the most culturally diverse regions in the country, Fresno State is a place where students grow from high-impact practices and unique community partnerships.
This is a fertile place to boldly equip and empower our students for success. And the success of our students – the next generation of leaders in our region and beyond – is of utmost importance. Our community ties are strong because we believe this region can thrive when the community and University work as one. That's why we show our commitment to the community through providing millions of hours of service, partnering with local organizations and spreading Fresno State pride across the Valley.
