Update: Cal State East Bay Accreditation Reaffirmation Visit Spring 2025

Dear Cal State East Bay community,

In the fall of 2022, I announced the formal launch of the university-wide process for reaffirmation of our accreditation by the WASC Senior College and University Commission, a process that occurs at least every 10 years. Cal State East Bay has been accredited by WASC since 1961, and we embrace reaffirmation as part of our continuous assessment and improvement efforts. Accreditation ensures recognition and transfer of degrees and is also required for state funding and federal aid. 

Since then, over 100 faculty, students, staff, and leadership have contributed to this critical University-wide effort through completing a comprehensive self-study followed by a draft of an institutional report that candidly and transparently reports on our steady progress in educating our students over the last 10 years since our last reaffirmation.

You are invited to review this draft of the institutional report. Your comments on the draft are welcome and can be provided here through May 17th, 2024. Our institutional report will be submitted at the end of summer, 2024. 

Dr. Fanny Yeung and I will continue to keep you updated on our preparation and your involvement from now until the official WASC team visit in spring 2025. Watch this video for more on the process.
