During the latter half of the early 2000s, CPP opened a new parking structure that added an additional 2,300 parking spaces available for students.
Currently, there are also plans to make another parking structure where Parking Lot K now sits.
That same year, the university also garnered many awards for various entities. The Department of Homeland Security and National Security Agency distinguished the computer information systems department as a “Center of Excellence in Informational Assurance Education.” The Residential Suites were also recognized later that year, and received a Merit award for Residential Architecture magazine’s design awards.
Towards the end of the year, after Hurricane Katrina, the CSU system campuses opened fall admissions to Louisiana community college students affected by the hurricane.
In 2006, the University Library received a $2.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education, which allowed the library to renovate and expand.
AGRIscapes also started a $1.8 million construction project for its greenhouses.
A few of CPP’s professors and educators were recognized nationally for their work on campus. Doreen Nelson of the education department was named one of the recipients of the California State University Wang Family Excellence Award. Jill-Adler-Moore was recognized for her work at the Fellows Forum at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in St. Louis.
In 2007, the media also featured the campus several times: KIIS FM DJ Chuck Street went to that year’s Hot Dog Caper event. KTLA reporter Gayle Anderson also visited the John T. Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies to feature student projects.
