Welcome to Quest, a publication highlighting the research, scholarly and creative activity of Long Beach State University.

Our university prides itself on creating a learning environment for all in which scholarship and research enhance teaching—where leading scholars and students strive to expand knowledge and contribute to the economic growth and social advancement of our region and the nation.

I could write volumes about the remarkable work being done on our campus, but I’ll let the stories speak for themselves. They are powerful examples of our Beach community making a difference.

Go Beach!
