Graduation Initiative 2025

In September 2016 former Chancellor Timothy White (M.S., East Bay) convened California State University executives to relaunch a Graduation Initiative involving all 23 CSU campuses with the aim of improving graduation rates and closing achievement gaps.

Cal State East Bay is an active participant in the Graduation Initiative.

A Student Success Dashboard is now available to our campus so that we are better informed and can track the impact of various campus initiatives. The CSUEB summary with the new campus goals outlined is available.
