Did You Know?

Five years after CSULB, the Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) and Long Beach City College (LBCC) joined together to create the Long Beach College Promise, data shows encouraging results in three key measurements of student achievement—college preparation, college access and college success.

LBUSD Superintendent Christopher Steinhauser, LBCC Superintendent-President Eloy Ortiz Oakley and CSULB Provost Don Para shared the data, which are compiled in a progress report titled, “A Breakthrough in Student Achievement,” on Thursday, March 21 at an anniversary celebration. To view the full report, visit the Long Beach College Promise website.
