But the road to student success in higher education is often pitted with potholes.¬†And California State University is finding its fair share as it pursues a pilot project that grew out of the university system’s “Graduation Initiative 2025.” This is an ambitious plan to increase graduation rates for all CSU students while eliminating equity gaps for under-represented minorities and Pell-eligible students. For example, the four-year graduation rate for freshmen is pegged to increase from 23 percent in 2017 to 40 percent by 2025; the six-year rate is expected to rise from 59 percent to 70 percent.
