California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) is a small public university in the California State University system on the site of the former U.S. Army base Fort Ord, on the Central Coast of California. It is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

CSUMB was founded in 1994 with a student enrollment of 654 students. The founding president was Peter Plympton Smith, PhD. It was the 21st campus in the California State University System and took as its slogan "The 21st campus for the 21st century". The university offers 62 different bachelor's degrees, 6 master's degrees, and 6 teaching credentials. It does not confer any doctoral degrees.

As of spring 2013, the university has about 6,000 students and 150 full-time faculty members. The university operates on the semester system. The institution seeks to distinguish itself through "outcomes-based education," with undergraduates required to conduct a capstone research project, and compile a portfolio demonstrating competency in their concentration, with a faculty member as advisor. In 2006, Dianne F. Harrison, PhD, was selected from three candidates to be the new president of the university.
