Discussions begin between California State University (CSU) and local community college officials on September 11. There are several excellent community colleges in the region, including Hartnell Community College in Salinas and Monterey Peninsula College in Monterey. Local colleges are concerned that a new campus in the area will cause dramatic reductions in their student enrolment. Officials work to ensure that the new campus will not duplicate existing educational resources in the Monterey Bay area.

CSU officials plan to offer fields of study at the new campus that are not presently available in the region.
