Sustainable Development Goal 4: Quality Education
Fresno State's mission, as defined in the 2016-2020 Strategic Plan, is to "boldly educate and empower students for success." This mission, along with our vision statement, "students prepared to become our next generation of leaders," and our values of Discovery, Diversity and Distinction fold into the campus Strategic Plan priorities, which state that Fresno State will implement bold, focused strategies designed to maximize success for our diverse student body. By collaborating with community partners, we will provide a transformative educational experience that prepares students to serve and to lead in the Central Valley, the state and beyond while improving the overall graduation rate.
Fresno State Education Initiatives
The Fresno State Food Security Project was launched in 2014 to support students who may be experiencing food insecurity or other challenges that could inhibit their academic success. Initiatives included in the Project are the Amendola Family Student Cupboard, CalFresh nutrition assistance program application assistance, and nutrition education and budgeting workshops. The Student Cupboard is a free food and hygiene pantry (including diapers) for current Fresno State students and is funded by monetary as well as food and hygiene donations.
