Mission, Vision & Core Values


The mission of the Office of Academic Achievement Programs is to bridge equity gaps in student engagement in high impact practices to promote inclusive student success for all Stockton students. The department works to accomplish this mission by creating pathways to high impact practices that support the development of underrepresented minority students who are transformed by their experiences and prepared to impact their local communities and the multi-cultural world. Our programs and initiatives aim to complement the mission, vision, and strategic priorities of the University and the Division of Student Affairs.


The Office of Academic Achievement Programs will provide education, engagement, and achievement opportunities within the domain of high impact practices. As a member of the campus community, the department will remain dedicated to promoting student success and advancing equity and inclusion through campus-wide partnerships and collaborations.
