Dear Campus Community:

Cal Maritime remains dedicated to providing our cadets with an inclusive learning environment that prepares them for real-world challenges ashore and at sea. We strongly condemn harassment and assault of any kind against members of our community, especially individuals that have experienced acts against them in the past, such as women, members of the LGBTQ community, and other historically marginalized groups.

We as a campus community at Cal Maritime are comprised of the most brilliant and talented cadets, staff, and faculty in the world. It is our academy culture that makes us the most unique campus in the California State University (CSU) system, and it is our direct link to the maritime industry and all that comes with it that fuels our desire to meet the need for a more inclusive environment. 

We are currently in a pivotal time of change in our campus culture as well as in the maritime industry, and this moment is a part of that pivot. 


Established in 1929, California State University Maritime Academy is the only degree-granting maritime academy on the West Coast. Located in Vallejo, California, the campus serves nearly 1,000 students and offers undergraduate degrees preparing students for careers in engineering, transportation, international relations, business, and global logistics. The new oceanography degree program launched in the fall of 2020. Cal Maritime also offers a master’s degree in Transportation and Engineering Management, as well as a number of extended learning programs and courses.
