Access, Retention and Community (ARC)
Access, Retention and Community (ARC) is a Department of Education AANAPISI cooperative grant initiative that seeks to expand SFSU and the San Mateo County Community Colleges' institutional capacity to address an equity gap in college access, persistence, transfer, and completion for transfer students. ARC is designed to increase the enrollment, graduation, and career-readiness of underserved Asian and Pacific Islander American (AANAPI) and low-income (LI) students. The supports include: peer mentoring, faculty workshops and learning communities (LCs), student support communities and LCs, transfer-related events, workshops, and visits to SFSU.
Responsive Education for Access, Community, and Hope (REACH)
The Responsive Education for Access, Community, and Hope (REACH) Program was created to improve and expand San Francisco State’s capacity to eliminate an equity gap in college access, persistence, and completion.
REACH offers a comprehensive set of culturally responsive and equity-minded access, awareness, and financial literacy strategies designed to improve college access, persistence, and completion of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AA&PI) and low-income (LI) students.
