We foster understanding of the unique issues and challenges AB 540 students face. We support professional excellence and promote academic achievement. We carry out this work and vision in concurrence with the university’s mission and master plan.

Ultimately, the goal is to sustain the development and advancement of a positive work environment in which students, faculty, staff and administrators are inspired and empowered to support AB 540 students in their quest for academic excellence.
