DEVELOPING YOUNG PEOPLE
We believe community is important, and supporting each other makes us all stronger. We're committed to this principle.
Our local and regional businesses pave the way for our teams and student-athletes to have success and make meaningful contributions to our society. Your support matters, and has a long-term, positive impact on so many levels.
Through OTTERCONNECT, we recognize your contribution and work to develop winning, mutually beneficial partnerships within our community.

BEING A GOOD PARTNER
MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL RELATIONSHIPS
OTTERCONNECT’s Corporate Partners Program is designed to strengthen the relationship between CSUMB athletics and the corporate community in the greater Monterey Bay region. CSUMB athletics hosts over 100 events each year, and attracts between 25,000 to 30,000 attendees annually.
Before joining OtterConnect, our staff takes the time to learn about the business and growth goals of our partners so we can maximize each opportunity and deliver real value and ROI. Each relationship we develop is unique and personal, allowing us to cater to the specific needs of each partner.
CSUMB provides its corporate partners with an array of exciting benefits and opportunities to get involved, including promotions, product placements, mobile advertising, invitations to games, event co-marketing and social media.
LEADERS OF TOMORROW
We’re committed to developing well-rounded student-athletes and competing for championships. Our student-athletes are smart, passionate and hard working, and represent the best CSUMB has to offer.

CSUMB coaches, faculty and staff do an amazing job of developing our young people to be leaders in the classroom, in competition and beyond. As an athletics department, our teams have a cumulative 3.1 GPA. Our retention and graduation rates are higher than the general student body.
Through OTTERCONNECT, we're getting the support we need from corporate partners to accomplish our goals, and to provide the best environment for our student-athletes to succeed.
CSUMB men's soccer defender, Marco Rangel, was recently honored as one of three California Collegiate Athletic Association Student–Athletes to represent the conference at the 2016 NCAA Student–Athlete Leadership Forum in Phoenix, Arizona. This is one example of the great things our student-athletes are accomplishing with the support of our corporate partners, donors and friends of CSUMB.
"I'm a local kid, from Hollister... I see myself in the kids that we serve in this area. I had a language barrier and struggles growing up. I think it's important to give back and show that someone cares. One person can change the life of another."
