California State Univ., Long Beach. Office of the Chancellor.
The California State University's statewide outreach programs to improve student preparation and access are described. An introductory section explains the origins and evolution of the outreach program since 1985, when a report on underrepresentation of Hispanic students prompted expanded recruitment effort. The state university's systemwide outreach activities are outlined, including publications, educational videos for middle and senior high schools and community colleges, posters, outreach to parents, a parental involvement project, a calendar geared to Spanish-speaking parents, and conferences and newsletters. System outreach programs funded from the general fund or lottery are listed separately. They include: a college readiness program providing academic enrichment; the Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement (MESA) recruitment program; special services to high schools, bringing university students into the schools to talk to prospective enrollees; the Step-to-College program waiving or reducing registration fees for promising students; the intersegmental California Academic Partnership Program funding curriculum projects and diagnostic testing; transfer centers; an Educational Opportunity Programs transfer project; a program for associate-degree holders successful in vocations to return to college; Graduate Equity Fellowships; a forgivable loan/doctoral incentive plan; and a University of California/California State University pre-doctoral program.
