Undergraduate Education

Undergraduate Education advances Chico State’s mission of access and excellence by providing curricular and co-curricular programs that attract diverse students, help them excel academically, and launch life-long journeys of personal, academic, and civic discovery.

Undergraduate Education is a hub of campus innovation and collaboration that supports the Chico State community in continuously improving the way we educate students for purpose and success in the contemporary world.

Innovating for Student Success

Undergraduate Education’s programs span the student experience from high school outreach to meaningful first-year learning in and outside the classroom to faculty-mentored research and opportunities for professional development through peer mentoring, public event planning, and community-engaged educational research.

Driven by leading-edge learning theory, the collaborative professionals of Undergraduate Education work in partnership with faculty and staff across campus to design and support student-centered curricular and co-curricular innovation.
