Anchor University Experience Sac State

Anchor University

In the fall of 2018, President Robert Nelsen launched Sacramento State’s anchor university effort in order to create a long-term and sustainable plan for lasting community engagement.

As the leading university in our community, Sacramento State, its students, faculty, and staff have a long-established and unique role to play in improving Sacramento and its neighborhoods.

Our deep roots, commitment to community engagement, and collective efforts allow the University to promote, facilitate and advance community building and economic prosperity in a manner that is both beneficial to students and our community.
