Graduation Initiative Steering Committee

To achieve the Graduation Initiative 2025's goals, CSUSM has established a Graduation Initiative Steering Committee (GISC). GISC works to identify and remove barriers to timely graduation consistent with a high-quality undergraduate education in an environment centered on student learning and success.

The Committee includes faculty, staff, and administrators from Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and the President’s Office.  GISC leads the campus in ensuring that CSUSM makes progress towards and ultimately meets the revised 2025 goals set by the Chancellor's Office.
