Improving Immigrant Student Success: AB 540 Ally Training Project

A Professional Development Project for Faculty and Staff
California State University, Long Beach

Student success is a California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) priority, and its main goal is to increase student retention and graduation with highly valued degrees. CSULB celebrates over a decade of sustained efforts on the part of many people across the campus working to improve retention and graduation, the quality of the student experience, support for faculty, technological infrastructure and the physical campus. CSULB now aims to achieve still greater distinction in four areas: student success, academic quality, service excellence, and campus environment. Student success is identified as a priority in several policy and strategy documents and its main goal is to increase student retention and graduation with highly valued degrees. In the AB 540 Ally Training Project, the University will focus on undocumented immigrant students.
