Through the use of evidence to inform decisions and assessment to evaluate the results of actions, Cal State East Bay is able to guide its future with confidence.
Cal State East Bay's continuous strategic planning model involves the following essential elements initiated by its leadership: involvement of the University community, analysis of its current context and circumstances, articulation of aspirations for the future, development of action plans, allocation of resources, and over time, adjustment of programs and expectations to meeting changing conditions.
The first loop in this cycle represents the presidency of Mohammad H. Qayoumi, who served from 2006 to 2011, and the next loop began with the appointment of Leroy M. Morishita as the University’s fifth and current president.
Strategic Planning Update, Winter - Spring 2012
In his message to the University on January 25, 2012, President Morishita expressed his enthusiasm for "the opportunity to work with the University community in advancing Cal State East Bay and taking those next steps together."

On May 23, UPABC reviewed the changes proposed by members of the University community during a series of meetings during March, April, and May, and forwarded its recommendation for approval to the President's Cabinet. On June 19, 2012, President Morishita presented the University's expanded mission statement, its new shared strategic commitments, and its institutional learning outcomes to the University community in his e-newsletter.
Strategic Planning Relationships
At California State University, East Bay, academic and enrollment planning drive support services, faculty and staff recruitment, budget development, information systems, physical planning, external relations, and fundraising. Academic planning reflects the mission of the University. Enrollment follows, with students at the center, supported by academic and student services, and by the faculty and staff who offer these services. The University's infrastructure -- physical, technological, financial -- provides underlying support. The University recognizes that many of the relationships among these functions are reciprocal. For example, while students need instructors, services and facilities; maintaining high quality, respected faculty, strong co-curricular programs, and a well-maintained campus can attract and retain students.
