The State

December 16, 1987

California State College, Bakersfield, has been elevated to university status. The smallest of the 19 campuses in the California State University system, Cal State Bakersfield was listed as a college until Monday when the California Post-secondary Education Commission changed it to a university. Officials of the new California State University, Bakersfield, credited the change to expanded academic programs and increased enrollments. A ceremony to commemorate university status is scheduled Feb. 4.
