"Voices From Our Community" Feedback

Here is a sampling of answers from members of the Sacramento State community to Strategic Plan
Question 1: "What makes Sacramento State unique?"

Primary themes, ranked in order:

  1. Location (proximity to the State Capitol)
  2. Campus beauty
  3. Diversity
  4. People (faculty/students)

Subsequent themes, mentioned but not supported with many comments (feedback paraphrased):

  • Division 1 athletics.
  • Sacramento State offers an accessible route for first-time college graduates in a family, as it is financially affordable.
  • We are missing a truly "unique" aspect.
  • Overpopulation of students for the resources provided.
  • A diverse and stimulating performing arts scene makes Sac State unique, but this is not as visible and evident as it should be.
  • The library is underwhelming. It is completely dated. The orange stools, lack of outlets for laptops ... it is disappointing and needs to be redone.

  • That we can bring world-class track and field events to our campus, such as the USA Championships, the Olympic Trials and NCAAs. There has been no better opportunity in the sports arena to promote our campus and place it on the map globally.
  • The apparent inability to make itself open to its communities – the community at large and the employees who work here as ambassadors to this community. The campus's closed nature is evident all around with "no entrance" signs at all the places where communities gather.
  • The only public university in the state capital, and it features the Capital Fellows Programs.
  • Proximity and access to state government leaders and agencies.
  • Connections. The students primarily come from the region and stay to live and work here. Community organizations, businesses and government agencies are full of Sac State alumni.
