City of Moreno Valley, California Baptist University Partner to Open New Educational Center

For immediate release: September 8, 2017


The City of Moreno Valley and California Baptist University are proud to announce the opening of a new university educational service center at the Moreno Valley’s Employment Resource Center.

The center, located at 12625 Frederick Street in Moreno Valley, is the result of a joint partnership between the City of Moreno Valley and CBU’s Division of Online and Professional Studies to bring university services to Moreno Valley in order to provide additional resources for residents to further their education.

The new CBU location serves as an enrollment center for new students as well providing a classroom setting and study area for CBU students.

The City is working closely with CBU officials to tailor programs to the growing Moreno Valley job market, focusing on the fields of global trade and logistics, business and medical.

“Having a university like CBU in Moreno Valley will be an incredible asset to our community,” said Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez. “As home to many Fortune 500 and International companies and a thriving global trade and logistics industry, Moreno Valley is collaborating with CBU to develop new programs to train the future leaders of our City in the industries of our future. And we’re training them right here in Moreno Valley.”

CBU Online offers more than 40 degree programs in a variety of disciplines at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral level. Each program is designed with the working professional in mind, allowing students the flexibility to manage school, family and work. The Moreno Valley location adds greater convenience for Moreno Valley residents and commuters traveling the 215 and 60 freeway corridor.

“CBU is excited to partner with the City of Moreno Valley. Our Bachelor’s in Business with a concentration in Logistics and Operations Management will be launching this fall,” said Dr. David Poole, vice president for online and professional studies. “This degree program will benefit residents who work at some of the large employers in this growing city, such as Amazon, Proctor & Gamble and Skechers.”

CBU Online is now accepting applications for its Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctorate degree programs. The fall semester second session begins October 30, 2017.
