Graduation Initiative 2025 Goals

To meet the workforce demands of California’s economy, the CSU 2025 Initiative aims to graduate an additional 100,000 baccalaureate students, a total of more than one million, over the next ten years. SF State will contribute to this goal by increasing transfer and freshman graduation rates by an average of 11.25% and eliminating the opportunity gap.

Toward these ends, our campus plan is structured around six strategies:
  1. improved course availability and curriculum;
  2. coordinated, intrusive and strategic advising;
  3. broad accessibility and visibility of student success data;
  4. high-quality student experience in the first year of college for incoming freshmen;
  5. effective, targeted support services to achieve educational equity (directed specifically at our first-generation, low-income and underrepresented students, with special attention to men of color); and
  6. faculty hiring and development
