SDSU has received recognition over many years for its steady success in narrowing the achievement gap. A comprehensive analysis of 2003-2013 data by the Education Trust found that SDSU was one of only 26 universities in the nation to have increased six-year graduation rates for all students while also closing the gap between six-year graduation rates for underrepresented students and white students.The Education Trust report recognized SDSU for cutting the achievement gap in half while simultaneously increasing the population of underrepresented minority students enrolled at the undergraduate level. Since then, SDSU has continued to implement programs and policies aimed at eliminating the achievement gap.
