Task Force Report

Cal State San Marcos is a community committed to maintaining an inclusive campus climate where every member of the community is welcomed, valued and given the support to be successful. In keeping with that commitment, on July 21, 2016 the President charged a task force to prepare a report on the status of our campus support structures for AB 540 students, and to provide recommendations to enhance their success. The task force delivered their report to the President on Dec. 21, 2016 and she then appointed Vice President for Student Affairs Lorena Checa to take the lead on developing a plan to respond to the report’s 31 recommendations. 

A first review of the recommendations was conducted by the Student Affairs Senior Leadership Team to identify programs and services that are currently being offered that address specific recommendations. Divisions across the University were consulted as appropriate and, on March 13, 2017, Executive Council concurred with the overall plan that our campus will take to address the report’s recommendations.

For ease of review, the AB 540 Action Plan sorts the 31 recommendations into three general categories:

  1. Items that the campus has already institutionalized.
  2. Items that we will be acting on as part of our campus’ implementation of the Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan.
  3. Items that are beyond our direct control to address due to legal or other constraints.

Both the Task Force Report and the Student Support Services Action Plan can be viewed via the links below.
