SAN MARCOS — The College of Business Administration, or CoBA, at Cal State San Marcos received a $50,000 gift from Mission Federal Credit Union to provide building and programmatic upgrades not supported through state funding.
MFCU is a member-owned organization providing financial and related services to its members. It is the second largest credit union in San Diego County.
As part of the college’s naming opportunity campaign for Markstein Hall, classroom 203 was named after the credit union.
Donor money is being used to upgrade furniture; provide state-of-the-art technology including distance learning capabilities; and upgrade construction building materials. Additionally, donor funding supports faculty development in teaching and research efforts as well as support for the creation of new programs, including the newly created Entrepreneurship Program and Student VIP and mentoring programs.
“The support that MFCU has shown the college helps us to make a difference in this region,” CoBA Dean Dennis Guseman said. “A strong, vibrant economy requires an educated workforce. To continue providing a pipeline of educated and prepared professionals it is now more important than ever for local businesses to invest in our programs.”
