How we work together

Our professors choose this university based on their ability to make personal connections and have direct impact on students’ academic and personal success. They strive to do so every day and work to remove obstacles, always focused on increasing students’ success.

With many faculty and staff being first generation college grads and Stanislaus State alums, we recognize the hard work and choices our students make to attend college. We provide multi-level support to first generation and traditionally underserved students to assist with academics, engagement, and connections, health and wellness services, mental health support, and everything from housing and life skills to food security.

Our Warrior spirit moves faculty, staff, and fellow students to reach out to newcomers and welcome, guide, and encourage them at every step.

From national and media recognition to honor societies, Stan State represents academic excellence in our programs, our faculty, and in the achievements of our students.

We focus on more than academics and ensure our students are prepared for life with the career and soft-skills that will help them succeed in whatever they pursue after graduation.

We are committed to actively developing and fostering an inclusive environment that’s supported by deep understanding, alliance, behaviors, and infrastructure that reflect the value of every member of our community.
