Interim Report For Stockton 2022

The WASC Interim Report Committee provided their findings on the Stanislaus State interim report related to the Stockton Campus in August 2022, which included three commendations and no recommendations.  


  1. Stan State has navigated the COVID era with integrity and a focus on quality as it sought to serve its students in the context of addressing the issues of this report. The university should be commended for providing excellent materials and plans for their Stockton campus despite the difficulties caused by the pandemic.

  2. The institution has experienced a high degree of leadership changes and appears to have in place a team situated to meet current needs as well as prepare for a positive future.

  3. Cal State Stanislaus has made excellent progress on implementing a strategic plan, which includes work in creating strong partnerships in the community and working with the CSU Chancellor's office to ensure adequate funding for the Stockton campus.

The next full reaccreditation cycle will include an off-site review in fall 2026 and on-site visit in spring 2027.
