Strategic Priority #4
INCREASE ACCESS, AFFORDABILITY, AND EQUITY
Saint Mary’s will embrace its heritage as an institution committed to placing the advantages of a quality education “within reach of all” by increasing the availability of financial support to increase access to the College and its myriad programs. We will enhance affordability by developing transparent and accessible transfer pipelines with California community colleges and by increasing the flexibility of academic programs to improve the time to degree. We will increase access to high impact practices, particularly for first generation and low income students. Saint Mary’s will advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging across our campus community.
We will be updating this page with our accomplishments as we execute the Strategic plan.
