The Trustees of the California State University shall succeed to the powers, duties, and functions with respect to the management, administration, and control of the state colleges heretofore vested in the State Board of Education or in the Director of Education, including all powers, duties, obligations, and functions specified in Article 2 (commencing with Section 90010) of Chapter 8 of Part 55, and all obligations assumed by the State Board of Education pursuant to that article prior to July 1, 1961.
On and after July 1, 1961, the Trustees of the California State University shall have full power and responsibility in the construction and development of any state university campus, and any buildings or other facilities or improvements connected with the California State University. The powers shall be exercised by the Trustees of the California State University notwithstanding Chapter 10 (commencing with Section 14950) of Part 5.5 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code and Chapter 1 (commencing with Section 10100) of Part 2 of Division 2 of the Public Contract Code, except that the powers shall be carried out pursuant to Chapter 2.5 (commencing with Section 10700) of Part 2 of Division 2 of the Public Contract Code known as the California State University Contract Law.
The Trustees of the California State University may accept gifts of land, or gifts of options on land, may accept and expend gifts of money for the purchase of land or options on land, and may enter into negotiations and contracts for the purchase of land for a future state university site in the vicinity of any of the areas specified in the recommendations contained in the Master Plan for Higher Education printed on page 42, paragraph 5, Senate Journal (Regular Session) for February 1, 1960, except that the gifts, expenditures, negotiations, and contracts shall not obligate the expenditure of any state funds for the purchase of the land or for development on the land, unless the Legislature subsequently approves the obligation by appropriating the funds for that specific purpose.
Any acceptance, acceptance and expenditure, or negotiations and contract may be conditioned upon an automatic reversion back to the donor or automatic termination of the negotiations and contract if a new state university is not established at a specific site prior to a specific date designated by the trustees and the donor or the trustees and the person or corporation with whom the trustees are negotiating or contracting.
