Pacific Islander Asian American (PIAA) is an innovative access and retention program at Cal State East Bay that aims to validate and develop first-year and continuing students while cultivating a space that provides them a sense of belonging to further navigate their personal, academic, and professional journeys. Rooted in culture, community, and bridge-building, the PIAA Program provides an academic support environment that recognizes and celebrates Pacific Islander and Asian American identitites and experiences in an inclusive context.
Veteran Students Services Program provides wraparound student support services to all Cal State East Bay veteran students. Program services are organized around two key services:
- One-on-one holistic academic counseling that includes academic advisement, career & goal planning, scholarship guidance, graduate school advising, guidance on balancing academic and personal life; and
- Processing educational benefits and benefits coaching - guidance on the effective use of VA benefits and/or other resources to achieve education and career goals.
Additionally, the program offers peer mentoring, referrals to other departments and external agencies and opportunities for networking and building a community of veteran students. Veteran Students Services works closely with the Veteran Student Organization (VSO) to promote the needs of veteran students in the university community.
