Annual Report



As we are now a little over a month into the new school year, it is easy to see that the 2013-2014 fiscal year was one of growth for California Lutheran University. It was a year during which we saw Ullman Commons move towards completion in the center of our Thousand Oaks campus. It was a year during which we merged with Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, expanding our reach geographically by adding a campus in Berkeley, as well as expanding our reach spiritually as we can now say Cal Lutheran is directly preparing the next generation of leaders for the church. It was a year during which our athletic teams soared to new heights within the NCAA’s Division III, with many teams setting records for their performances. It was a year during which we hired the most new faculty members in our history (we officially welcomed all 23 of them during our Opening Convocation right before the first day of fall semester classes). And finally, our 2014 Commencement was the capstone to many consecutive years of enrollment growth leading to the single-largest graduating class in our university’s history.

And now as we prepare to welcome the first graduating classes of Cal Lutheran back to campus for their 50th reunion celebration—the first 50th reunion in our history!—it is even more remarkable to think of how much Cal Lutheran has grown since these pioneers made the bold decision to attend school at a small, unproven Lutheran college surrounded by ranch land. These pioneers planted the seeds that have been tended to and nurtured by every student, faculty member, administrator, staffer and friend of Cal Lutheran who helped us grow into the comprehensive university that we are today.

I would like to take a brief moment to call your attention to the visual look of this report as well as the website it lives on—our University Marketing team, with the support of our Board of Regents, has established a new visual identity for us. As we forge ahead in our second half century and prepare to host more and more 50th reunions, I hope the new look signals that our future is bright, our vision is clear, and our commitment to students is as strong as ever. While change is never easy, I believe this updated look positions us well and I look forward to more and more people getting to know Cal Lutheran through the efforts of our marketing team.

In 2012, Cal Lutheran established a five-year plan with five strategic goals. This report is designed to give you an overview of all the things that have happened at Cal Lutheran over the last year, the second of the strategic plan’s five years. It includes a summary of our 2013-2014 fiscal year and recognition of our generous supporters.

While I have highlighted some specific ways in which we have grown over the last year, I am pleased to report that California Lutheran University is a place that will continually evolve and innovate. We will never take for granted those pioneers whose hands built something great from scratch. Thank you for your interest and your support.

Financial Report 2013-2014

California Lutheran University did well financially during the fiscal year ending May 31, 2014. Total institutional assets increased to $309.1 million, up from $262.8 million in the previous year. Net assets (total assets less liabilities) increased to $215.3 million, up from $171.4 million, due to operating gains and the merger with Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary (PLTS).

Revenues and Expenses

Due to exceptional operating performance and investment returns, revenue exceeded expenses by $24.7 million. The merger with PLTS contributed $19.2 million to net assets. Total revenues and gains are $123.5 million, up from $109.2 million in the previous fiscal year. Operating revenue increased to $107.9 million from $101.9 million in the prior year, while non-operating revenue was up to $15.6 million from $7.3 million in the prior year primarily due to the fluctuations in the value of the endowment, one large endowment contribution and two large capital project contributions.

Net tuition revenues in 2013–2014 increased to $79.0 million, up from $75.5 million in the previous year. (All of the revenue figures above are net calculations. They do not count tuition covered by institutional scholarships and grants: $39.0 million in 2013–2014 and $34.4 million in 2012–2013.)

Expenses increased to $98.8 million for the fiscal year, up from $91.8 million.

Balance Sheet

Total assets increased by $46.3 million, liabilities increased by $2.5 million, and net assets increased by $43.9 million. Cash increased to $48.2 million, from $42.2 million.

Contributions receivable increased to $7.2 million, from $3.8 million. During the year, the value of the University’s endowment increased by $24.5 million to $86.2 million largely due to the merger with PLTS of $11.9 million, market value changes on endowment assets of $5.8 million and new gifts of $5.1 million.

The endowment fund helps to ensure the University’s long-term financial health and stability and to provide an affordable education, including scholarships and grants, for current and future generations of students. Donors’ gifts are invested in perpetuity with a portion of the income available for University needs and the remainder reinvested to maintain future buying power.

The University’s Property, Plant and Equipment increased to $126.6 million, from $122.9 million in the previous year, primarily due to the addition of PLTS assets at fair market value offset by depreciation.

Donor Contributions

Donor contributions are a significant factor in the continued financial strengthening of the University. Charitable giving during the period consisted of 23,206 gifts and pledges from 10,689 donors, including alumni, parents of students and alumni, friends, churches, corporations, foundations and other organizations. A breakdown of gifts and pledges as recorded in the audited 2013–2014 fiscal report includes:

Unrestricted Gifts
CLU Annual Fund $947,000
Church $307,000
KCLU Radio $788,000
Restricted Gifts
(capital, endowment, scholarship, etc.) $13,251,000
Grand Total $15,293,000

The University is grateful to all of our 2013–2014 donors for sharing in California Lutheran University’s mission and success. For additional information about the University’s audited financial statements, please visit Office of the President’s website.

Progress Report

Five Strategic Goals

In May 2012, California Lutheran University’s Board of Regents approved a Five-Year Strategic Plan comprised of five overall goals in support of our mission. Each year, members of the senior leadership develop annual goals in order to support these Five-Year Plan goals. Below you will see our five overall goals and a sampling of efforts completed or achievements related to them during the 2013-2014 fiscal and academic year.


Guide students to discover and live their purpose with real-world learning experiences, excellent academic and career mentoring, and a campus environment that promotes inclusion.

  • Cal Lutheran was awarded a two-year $50,000 grant from the Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE), an arm of the Council of Independent Colleges, in January 2013. A committee was formed to determine how to best utilize these funds and the first of two staff and faculty retreats on vocation was held in June 2013. Seventeen staff and faculty participated in workshops, group discussion and self-reflection at El Camino Pines in Frazier Park, California. This group went on to implement a variety of projects throughout the school year with the support of mini-grants. Projects were designed to encourage vocational exploration among students and staff and included focused discussions on vocation at monthly administrative assistant lunches and creation of a booklet of short personal narratives on vocation at Cal Lutheran.
  • Our Office of University Ministries continued to implement and support Interfaith programs, with the hiring of Rabbi Belle Michael and hosting Catholic Seminarians during the spring semester. Rabbi Michael supports our Jewish students and fosters spiritual growth and kinship with members of Hillel. During the school year, she hosted weekly services of healing and blessings and also led an interfaith study of the Psalms. The Catholic Seminarians led a Candlemas celebration, hosted weekly events for students and held a monthly Catholic mass throughout the spring semester.
  • In August 2013, the interfaith efforts of our students were recognized with the award for Best Overall Campaign by the Interfaith Youth Core for the development of the Interfaith Allies student group, organization of monthly “Come Together Now” dinners, and other activities designed to make Cal Lutheran a welcoming place for those of all faiths.
  • Our 8th Annual Festival of Scholars held April 28 to May 3, 2014 showcased more than 300 scholarly projects created by undergraduate and graduate students from the College of Arts and Sciences, Graduate School of Education, Graduate School of Psychology and School of Management. This year’s event included a multidisciplinary session titled Center for Academic Service Learning: Service Learning Across the Disciplines. Faculty authors and grant recipients were also honored during a new special event.
  • The President’s Diversity Council awarded ten mini-grants to faculty members for a variety of inclusion and diversity projects. Work supported by these grants included: an event with a female mathematician guest speaker to encourage more women to pursue graduate studies in mathematics; religion faculty attendance at a conference focused on best practices for interfaith studies; and faculty research on the academic resilience of Latino youth.
  • Our Career Services office conducted its annual survey of Cal Lutheran graduates. Results for the class of 2013 indicated that at nine months after graduation, 98% of traditional undergraduate respondents were either working or attending graduate school (75% response rate).
  • 58% of the class of 2014 reported participation in an internship or earned academic credit for an internship during their time at Cal Lutheran. 37% reported that they did multiple internships. Students got a taste of the “real world” working at a variety of companies such as the American Lung Association, Baxter, CBS Studios, Intel Corporation, Kaiser Permanente, the Los Angeles Clippers, UBS Wealth Management and the Ventura County District Attorney.
  • Cal Lutheran, along with more than 240 other U.S. colleges, joined the Institute of International Education’s “Generation Study Abroad” initiative, pledging to increase the number of students who study abroad by 50% before the end of the decade. According to the institute, about 10% of students who graduate with associate or bachelor’s degrees have studied abroad. Cal Lutheran is already a leader in this area with 27% of the class of 2014 having enjoyed a study abroad experience. Members of the class of 2014 studied in 32 countries across six continents, including Argentina, China, Greece, Namibia, Sweden and Thailand.

Cal Lutheran strengthened its focus on services for veteran students with the hiring of Jenn Zimmerman, the university’s first veterans coordinator. Zimmerman organizes events for veteran students and helps veterans with enrollment, financial aid and academic issues.

  • Construction of Ullman Commons, the new dining and meeting facility in the center of our Thousand Oaks campus, began in early 2013 and continued through the 2013–2014 year. In April, students, faculty and staff were treated to a special Earth Day preview of the facility. Finishing touches and occupancy requirements were met over the summer in preparation for the facility’s grand opening at the start of the new school year. Ullman Commons includes:
    • A main Dining Commons an increased variety of made-to-order items prepared by chefs in open stations on the dining room floor. Options include a deli, Mongolia grill, wood-fire pizza oven and dedicated vegan station.
    • Ullman To Go, a quick service counter featuring premade meals and snacks as well as made-to-order deli sandwiches
    • Jack’s Corner, a full-service Starbucks coffee shop with approximately three times the seating of a typical Starbucks, making it one of the largest in Ventura County
    • Conference rooms with unlimited microphone capability and interactive whiteboards
    • Office space for catering and other food service staff
    • Improved kitchen and food preparation areas for our food service provider Sodexo
    • President’s Dining Room for important business meetings and stewardship events
  • Ullman Commons was planned and constructed to earn LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification from the United States Greed Building Council. We expect to receive that certification in 2014. Examples of sustainable features incorporated into Ullman Commons include:
    • High efficiency HVAC system
    • Low-e, dual pane windows
    • WaterSense plumbing fixtures including dual-flush toilets
    • Zero-VOC interior paint
    • Natural lighting in 95% of spaces
  • Invested in a new VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telephone system, replacing a 20 year old phone switchboard and more than 700 phones at our main campus and across all locations. The VoIP system allows for flexibility in providing telephone services to some 1,100 devices and in meeting the growth needs of the organization.
  • Information Technology services were improved for students and staff during the 2013–2014 school year, with additional bandwidth at the Thousand Oaks campus and improved WiFi coverage for our Thousand Oaks campus, Woodland Hills Center and Oxnard Center.
  • Improvements to classroom facilities included replacement of desktop computers in electronic classrooms, upgrades to computer labs in the Humanities and D buildings. New open computer pods were installed in the Swenson Center and lobby of the Gilbert Sports and Fitness Center for student drop-in use.
  • In March, a Zero Waste program was rolled out across our Thousand Oaks campus. In order to encourage the creation of less waste and an increase in recycling, standard three gallon wastebaskets in all offices and workspaces were replaced with smaller desktop trash cans. Office occupants now bring trash items to centrally located trash bins in all areas of campus, leaving the housekeeping staff able to collect recyclable items only in staff and faculty offices.
  • In January, we entered into a lease for new classroom and office space in Westlake Village, California. We remodeled the space to meet our needs and included a variety of sustainable features such as bicycle storage, shower facilities for bicycle commuters, and extensive use of outside lighting. While the building improvements happened during the 2013–2014 fiscal year, services and personnel moved in over the summer. Our Westlake Center is now home to a Community Counseling Center, staff and faculty from the Entrepreneurship program in our School of Management, and a small business incubator dubbed the Huddle Campus.
  • In an effort to conserve water, throughout the year, significant grassy areas on campus have been replaced with drought-tolerant landscaping. Areas revamped include the space behind the Pearson Library and much of the area between the Pederson and Hansen Administration Buildings.
  • Enhanced information security and back-up plan with the installation of replicated servers in a collocation facility outside of California. This will mean improved recovery time for critical information technology services in the event of a natural disaster or major system failure.
  • As a result of our January 2014 merger, we integrated information technology services between PLTS’ Berkeley campus and the Thousand Oaks campus, resulting in cross-campus information sharing and greater efficiency. In line with Cal Lutheran’s document imaging project, all paper transcripts held at PLTS were scanned into electronic form.

Attract students of high ideals and promise by enhancing regional and national awareness of CLU’s mission, by raising the profiles of students who are drawn to our mission, and by offering new programs and scholarships to attract these students.

It also hosted the popular Story Corps van in Thousand Oaks and Santa Barbara in fall 2013, recording and cataloging the personal and often moving stories of area residents.
  • In addition to annual events such as Fall and Spring Into CLU, Admitted Students Day, and the CLUtheran Overnight for prospective students and newly-admitted students, in 2014, the All-Access program for admitted students was introduced. All-Access Events provide admitted students the benefit of partially subsidized travel costs to get to campus to enjoy a personalized visit with a tour, Q&A with current students and a meal with other admitted students.

  • In August 2013, we hired a Director of International Admission in order maintain and increase the diversity of our international student body. During the 2013–2014 school year, he traveled to more than 15 countries where he represented Cal Lutheran at college fairs, organized workshops and presentations for college counselors and parents, and met with alumni.
  • With funding from a Ventura County Community Foundation grant, Cal Lutheran launched the Veterans Entrepreneurship Institute in January 2014. The pilot program gathered 20 area veterans for a series of 10 three-hour Saturday workshops designed to help them gain the skills and confidence to advance their careers or start and lead their own businesses.
