Creating a new approach to academic preparation through a series of academic and student support programs
Enhancing the quality of the student experience and the alignment of course availability with student need
Support for CSU Campuses in the development of wrap-around services to address students’ comprehensive care needs
Investing in the expansion of financial support structures beyond traditional financial aid to ensure economic status does not stall students’ success
Using data at both the system and campus level to inform the development and advancement of effective student support programs
Modernizing administrative processes by discontinuing policies and procedures identified as impediments to student success
