The San Diego State University (SDSU) Center for Equity and Postsecondary Attainment (CEPA) is dedicated to the creation of new systems that celebrate and center diverse voices and dismantle practices and policies that contribute to the marginalization and/or oppression of any group or individual. Utilizing research and scholarship as a guide, the center focuses specifically on college and career advising systems that increase equitable and accessible pathways to postsecondary success for all students. CEPA builds on the 2014 SDSU White House Convening which supported the former First Lady, Michelle Obama’s, Reach Higher campaign and brought together committed leaders from across the country focused on strengthening college and career counseling, readiness, enrollment, persistence and completion. We support students, their family, the community and the professionals who work with them, as they navigate their postsecondary journey and work towards the completion of a credential, certificate or degree capable of sustaining a livable wage.
