About Anchor University

Anchor University Initiative

As an anchor institution, Sacramento State has committed itself to strategically aligning teaching, research, admissions, procurement, hiring, and other university actions to the needs of the community.

Mission Statement

Sacramento State aligns its resources and efforts to cultivate purposeful, long-term, mutually beneficial community partnerships that confront systemic inequities, transform the lives of our students, and strengthen our communities.

About the Initiative

Sac State as an Anchor University

Community engagement has long been a hallmark of Sacramento State. Over the years, thousands of faculty, staff, and students have worked with community partners through service learning, research, creative, and community collaborations, and donated their time and resources to nonprofit organizations, local and state governmental agencies, and community-based initiatives.

As a place-based institution, the Sacramento State brings the full weight of its intellectual and economic readiness to support the growth and flourishing of the city and region -- most especially, to address those neighborhoods and communities that have historically been underrepresented and underserved.
