Otter Promise

The Otter Promise is CSUMB's response to the CSU's Graduation Initiative 2025 and represents our plan to develop an ecosystem of student success. We have set ambitious but achievable targets, in keeping with our commitment to social justice. CSUMB holds student success is never about completion alone, but something more holistic:

Students develop identity as self-directed learners in an interdependent community, cultivating the habits of mind to allow them to succeed in their academic, personal, and civic life, and to develop and achieve their goals here or elsewhere. Graduates are able to apply knowledge, theories, methods, and practices in a chosen field of study to address real-world challenges and opportunities.
