DIVERSITY AND DEMOCRACY
The Power of Intentionality: CSUF’s Strategic Approach to Ensuring Equity
Feb. 24, 2016
CSUF Provost José L. Cruz authored an essay for Diversity and Democracy, a publication of the Association of American Colleges and Universities, in which he outlined Cal State Fullerton's comprehensive efforts to enhance student success.
Wrote Cruz: "With approximately thirty-nine thousand students, more than half of whom are first-generation college students, we take seriously the moral mandate not only to strengthen educational opportunities for traditionally underserved students, but also to ensure that those opportunities lead to high-quality academic experiences with a strong liberal education component.
Our approach? Mobilize the campus by instilling a sense of urgency; leverage the power of liberal education; identify and scale true high-impact practices; and accelerate progress through coherent action."
