The Issue:

  • California has been steadily reducing funding for educational institutions.
  • The CSU Fresno Geomatics program is considered to be small and is more susceptible to cutbacks or elimination. 
  • Both professors that hold a professional land surveying license, are now retired

The Need:

  • CSU Fresno Geomatics program was the first four year surveying degree program in the nation and the first to become ABET accredited.
  • CSU Fresno Geomatics has graduated over 700 students.
  • Students graduating from the CSU Fresno Geomatics program have gone on to serve in many leadership positions in the land surveying profession both in the private and public sector.

The Solution:

  • The CLSA Education Foundation has worked with CSU Fresno to create an endowment that will fund a full-time professor licensed to practice land surveying in California. This will help to ensure that the CSU Fresno Geomatics program continues.
  • Lyles Foundation will match all donations, dollar-for-dollar, up to $1 million

The Benefit:

  • Your donation is fully tax deductible!
