California State University’s Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Success Strategic Initiatives Jeff Gold met with Associated Student leaders to explain the idea behind an established plan known as the Graduation Initiative.

The Graduation Initiative focuses on increasing graduation rates across all 23 campuses.

“We are trying to be really intentional about our strategy… and we’re not talking about lowering our standards,” Gold said.

There are five major aspects that the Graduation Initiative is addressing:

  • Academic preparation
  • Enrollment Management
  • Financial Aid
  • Data Infrastructure
  • Academic and Administrative Barriers

“These are all meaningful improvements for our students… we will be like no other system in the world,” Gold said.

    Great idea improving grad rates, how about getting rid of upper division GE stuff at Chico, students that come from community colleges all ready did a GE – to have to do a Chico upper division GE is just stupid, overkill. It slows down grad rates, internships are better, you learn on the job skills. I took GE classes, can’t even remember most of them, many were like doing high school over again, I took US history in HS, had to do it again at community college, same with biology .
