Text Size: Small Text Medium Text Large Text


Utilizing a “One University” approach, develop “best-in-class” practices for academic, career, and personal advising that support students’ pathways to graduation, responsiveness to workforce needs, and the lifelong empowerment and success of our graduates.


  1. In partnership with Academic Affairs we will increase effectiveness, continuity and accessibility of advising services, as well as identify and improve upon best practices for advising students utilizing a strengths-based approach, especially for students who are at risk of academic probation, or come from first-generation, low-income, underrepresented or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds.
  2. Create a distinguished Cal State Fullerton student experience that emphasizes a “Map to Commencement” upon entry that combines academic, personal and career advising and resources.
  3. Create a Transfer and Re-entry Student Task Force to identify priority advising and other needs of this student population. Expand and enhance the Transfer Center to provide comprehensive support to prospective, and pre-matriculated students who constitute about half of the new students annually.
  4. Create an environment in which Cal State Fullerton Student Affairs is nationally known for providing student-centered information via a customer-service orientation for students, staff, faculty and community.
  5. Increase and enhance coordination of pre-collegiate outreach and college readiness efforts that help students, especially those who come from first-generation, low-income, underrepresented or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds access higher education—all with the purpose of reinforcing access and diversity along the higher education pipeline.
  6. Develop and execute a nationally recognized University-wide employer outreach campaign to engage employers in paid internship sponsorship, hiring, and career education activities, responding to changing professional workforce needs and expectations. (HIP)
  7. Create renowned community engagement opportunities that include internships, service learning, civic engagement, and off-campus paraprofessional experiences working with local schools, community-based organizations, and other non-profits to exceed student and community needs. (HIP)
