Future Development Strategy

Strategy 1

Increase the efficiency and availability of Student Activity cards on the Main Campus and Chico Center so students have access to programs, services and transportation resources that require a card.

Initiatives
  • Inspiring passion through collaboration
  • Focusing on student success

  • Supporting Rationale

  • Increasing student success
  • Maintaining the appropriate program and service mix between the main campus and outlying centers
