The CSUB Institutional Proposal is the first element of the Institutional Presentation and, thereby, represents the initial stage of the accreditation review process. The purpose of the Institutional Proposal is to guide the accreditation review process for CSUB. Once the Institutional Proposal is approved by WASC, it becomes a part of the total body of institutional materials that guide and support the reviews during the subsequent two stages for CPR and EER.
CSUB submitted its Institutional Proposal , "Walking the Talk: The Achievement of Student Learning and Community Engagement through University Alignment and Campus Culture," to the Senior College Commission of WASC on 11 May 2007. Upon review of the Institutional Proposal, the Commission gave its formal approval on 05 July 2007.
