October 2021 Event

The Strategic Plan implementation committees presented goals that have been accomplished to date and additional progress forthcoming during the Strategic Plan Showcase, held Oct. 26 from noon to 2 p.m. on Centennial Walkway.

About 54 percent of all goals have been accomplished under the strategic plan. Some of the many new initiatives developed or launched under the strategic plan include the following:

  • Nine new proposals have been developed for new collaborative research centers, with an additional four projected by May 2023.
  • SDSU Imperial Valley is now offering the four-year liberal studies degree to high school graduates, a Bachelor of Arts in mathematics to transfer students and is also serving the university’s first cohort of graduate students in the Master of Science degree program in homeland security.
  • A new Climate Action Plan for the SDSU is under development and a new senior sustainability officer will be hired by the year’s end to help lead universitywide sustainability initiatives.
  • A new San Diego-Imperial Valley shuttle service is being piloted to more easily connect the SDSU and SDSU Imperial Valley campuses and to facilitate shared academic, research, and student engagement activities across both campuses.
  • The Basic Needs & Wellness Toolkit for faculty, staff and student leaders has been implemented to promote and educate students about counseling, economic crisis support and overall wellness.
  • SDSU has received federal designation as an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI).
  • Eight heritage month celebrations were held in 2020 and 10 more are being held this year.
  • Several mural projects have been introduced on campus, including several as part of the Social Justice Mural Project at Art North, and one at the Black Resource Center by internationally renowned graffiti artist Maxx Moses.
