Academic Programs puts students first by investing in and supporting learning through collaborative partnerships. We strive to transform lives through high quality, equitable, and holistic curricular and co-curricular programming.


As stewards of exemplary learning, Academic Programs collectively provides a transformative experience that:

  • Meets students where they are at.
  • Addresses systemic inequities that target minoritized groups through dialogue and action.
  • Provides ethical leadership within the university, local community, and the California State University system.
  • Makes evidence-informed decisions.
  • Provides transparent, inclusive, coordinated, and consistent communication.
  • Uses responsible recruitment and retention strategies for students, staff, and faculty.
  • Prioritizes and aligns resources to better serve students (learning, retention, and graduation).
