Student Success in the Majors

Chancellor Office Funding to Support Graduation Initiative 2025


Curricular complexity can pose a significant barrier to student success. The goal of any curricular redesign should be to maintain high standards while also assuring that curricular decisions increase the likelihood that students will graduate in four years, if first-time students, or two years for transfer students.

This initiative supports faculty in targeted redesign of their curriculum in order to support student success.  Possible options--based on promising practices at other CSUs and beyond--are listed in the proposal template, but programs could propose other strategies that will serve the same goal of streamlining degree requirements or increasing student success in or access to courses.

Grants of $5,000 to $7,000 will be awarded to departments to support faculty in making curricular revisions that will be implemented in 2018-2019. The result of the grant should be a proposed curricular change(s) that is approved by the College and submitted to the Office of Academic Planning.

Grant proposals, completed on the provided template, will need the Department Chair's and College Dean or designee’s endorsement and to be submitted by Monday, October 9th, 2017.
