Director's Welcome

Welcome to the Center for Educational Partnerships, Outreach and Success website!

The Center for Educational Partnerships, Outreach and Success within the division of Student Affairs and Campus Diversity collaborates with various schools, districts, and community partners to impact the outreach, recruitment, and retention goals of the University. We are a student-centered department with a focus on student success that seeks to positively impact the pathway to college and graduation for our local students.

Exciting things are happening at SDSU and our staff are dedicated to furthering the mission and goals of our institution by enhancing the educational opportunities of both current and prospective students through programs and activities that foster their development as scholars, mentors, and role models. In our department, SDSU students are supported through scholarships, employment, and a variety of programs and activities designed to nurture their personal, academic, and leadership wellness and development. Prospective SDSU students receive support in the forms of mentoring, tutoring, cultural enrichment, community service, and knowledge about the pathway to college. We also support parent education through our partnership with the Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE) as well as our orientation and family events.

Our department values collaboration and relationships. We strive to forge new ties, both on campus and in the community that will enable us to fulfill our mission to educate, empower, and motivate prospective, incoming, and current students, families, and communities in the pursuit of higher education. We invite you to stay connected with us as we pursue the possibilities of education, excellence, and empowerment for our students and community!
