Auxiliary organizations are non-profit, separately organized legal entities, created to support student success and the educational mission of the CSU by providing instructional and services support not normally furnished by the state budget. The CSU established auxiliaries to complement the core academic programs at each campus to provide a full range of educational experiences.
Auxiliary organizations perform essential functions associated with postsecondary educational institutions, which under California law are difficult, cumbersome, or legally restricted and not supported by state funding. Auxiliary organizations enhance budgetary flexibility, manage risk and exposure, shield against liability, and increase investment opportunities.
