San Diego State University President Adela de la Torre has announced new information regarding the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) process for SDSU Mission Valley. 

SDSU has issued the official Notice of Preparation and Initial Study for our Environmental Impact Report (EIR), which marks the formal beginning of our environmental review for the site.

“The Notice of Preparation and Initial Study (NOP/IS) is significant in many ways, not the least of which is that it provides the first opportunity for formal public input into the process,” de la Torre said in a message to on and off campus community members. 

“Over a series of meetings (which are officially called “Scoping Meetings”), SDSU will ask the public for input and comments,” de la Torre also noted. “Our CEQA team already is working with a robust list of CEQA topics, including transportation, cultural resources, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, biological resources, and others. However, we need your input to make sure we are considering appropriate areas of importance when it comes to protecting the environment."

Three Scoping Meetings are scheduled to allow for public comment. Dates, times and locations are noted below, and also online via

Those who are unable to attend one of the meetings, please feel free to also email comments to by February 19. Additionally, a court reporter will be present at each Scoping Meeting to record all oral comments, in addition to comment cards, for those who would prefer to give their feedback in writing.
