News on Initiatives

The Summer Transition Empowerment Program (STEP) took place on campus July 24 - August 5, 2022.  STEP is a ten-day immersive program for incoming first-year and transfer students from underserved backgrounds. It is a way for them to experience a slice of college life and help smooth the transition from their previous institution to Cal State East Bay.  Check out the article here!

In May 2022, staff and faculty in Advising participated in a 2-day offsite retreat to reconnect in-person (and virtually).  These were 2 days that offered opportunities for morale and community development, technical development, and the exploration of meaningful development and enrichment efforts from participants.  These advising goals will be a jumping off point for our next retreat moving forward. 

Many projects are currently in motion in Advising, Technology, Student Support, and People Resources - check out our Projects page for more info! 


CSU East Bay is committed to the academic success of our students. Our Pioneer Pathways initiative and projects focus on creating a proactive, comprehensive, and student-centered advising ecosystem that supports every student on their path towards graduation. 

On behalf of Cal State East Bay, the Pioneer Pathways steering committee thanks the Stupski Foundation for awarding the university with grant funds that support the projects and further the goals of our Pioneer Pathways initiative.
