Undergraduate Education and Academic Success

In addition to the seven academic colleges, undergraduate students are supported by a range of programs that cross disciplinary boundaries. Housed within Undergraduate Education and Academic Success (UED), the First-Year Experience Program, Honors Program, REACH Student Success Center, Office of Civic Engagement, Book in Common Program, and Undergraduate Research attract students from diverse backgrounds and help them excel academically, build community, and launch life-long journeys of personal, intellectual, and civic discovery. A hub of campus innovation and collaboration, UED leads the California State University, Chico community in continuously improving the way we educate students for purpose and success in the contemporary world.

UED’s programs span the student experience from high school transition to meaningful first-year learning to faculty-mentored research, professional development opportunities, and community-engaged educational research.

Driven by leading-edge learning theory, the collaborative professionals of UED work in partnership with faculty and staff across campus to innovate and support equitable student success.
