(Victor Valley)– Cal State San Bernardino’s SAIL (Student Assistance in Learning) program held its annual recognition reception to honor its 2018-2019 graduating students and their families.
More than 60 graduates were recognized at the reception, which was held on May 6 at the Santos Manuel Student Union Events Center. During the event, the awards for academic achievement were given to students with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above. The 2019 Honored Campus Partner was awarded to the Obershaw DEN.
The event also presented to students the Dorothy Inghram Textbook Scholarship and the Beyond Success Graduate Scholarship.
CSUSB’s SAIL program, which is housed in the Office of Undergraduate Studies, is celebrating more than 36 years of service on campus and has served more than 6,000 students.
Nationally, SAIL is a federally funded TRiO Student Support Services grant. The federal TRiO programs began with the passage of the Educational Opportunity Act of 1964. They include outreach programs designed to assist low-income, first-generation and students with disabilities as they proceed through the academic pipeline from middle school to post-baccalaureate programs.
The specific goal of Student Support Services programs such as SAIL is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of targeted students at the undergraduate level.
