The Legacy of Robert A. Corrigan

July 6, 2012

SF STATE MAGAZINE -- Since 1989, the University has acquired neighboring apartment buildings to house students, staff and faculty, and added new buildings to its main campus, including Humanities, Fine Arts, Student Services, the Village at Centennial Square, the A.S. Early Childhood Education Center, Children’s Campus and the Greenhouse.

During the past two decades, SF State has answered Corrigan’s call to “plan and implement new programs to meet the needs of students and society as a whole,” including Jewish studies, women studies, doctoral degrees in education and physical therapy and the MFA in creative writing. Across every discipline, SF State’s academic success can be measured in the continuing accomplishments of its alumni, a group that includes leaders in city, state and national government, the arts, journalism, business--virtually any sphere of activity.
