The CSU Graduation Initiative strives to raise the freshman six-year graduation rate and decrease the existing gap in degree attainment by CSU’s underrepresented minority (URM) students. Involving all 23 CSU campuses, the CSU Graduation Initiative encourages campuses to establish graduation targets comparable to the top quartile of national averages of similar institutions, and to close the URM achievement gap through a series of carefully planned activities.
In alignment with the CSU Graduation Initiative, Cal Poly Pomona developed the Graduation Initiative Steering Committee (GISC). The committee seeks, develops and supports programs designed to provide students at Cal Poly Pomona with activities, experiences and resources that will increase engagement and promote academic success.
