Academic Plan

At Cal State East Bay, the planning process is continuous and ongoing.

An Academic Plan was adopted in 2008 based on the work of a task force representing the colleges and administrative divisions of the university, with members appointed by the Academic Senate and the Provost along with student representation from the Associated Students. The academic plan describes the challenges facing Cal State East Bay and higher education in California. It drew from a series of workforce roundtables co-sponsored with Bay Area business, industry and government organizations to highlight the educational needs of California’s residents, who, in turn, comprise the future workforce and societal leadership for the state. Elements of the plan include enrollment priorities, classroom and teaching goals, planning for the future of our campuses in Hayward, Concord, Oakland, and Online Campus, and steps for ongoing implementation and review.

Educational Strategies for Meeting the East Bay Area’s Emerging Workforce Needs 2008 was produced as a result of these roundtable discussions.

In addition, in response to our WASC accreditation efforts in 2014, the university developed a five year plan for growth and change entitled Dynamic Strategic Planning. 

Much of the university's current planning stems from our need to respond to the Graduation Initiative 2025. This is a set of ambitious goals set forth for Cal State East Bay by the California State University System. These goals primarily involve improving our graduation rates, eliminating any gaps in student achievement, and recognizing that all students who come to the university expect and deserve to successfully matriculate and receive a degree. 

Currently, several divisions at the university are participating in an updated Strategic Plan for Advising and Student Success. Results of their work will be posted as they are available.
