Fresno State Earns Prestigious Seal of Excelencia Certification
Fresno State is one of just 10 institutions nationwide to earn the Excelencia in Education 2021 Seal of Excelencia certification this academic year, ensuring an unwavering commitment to intentionally serve Latino students, while serving all.
“This designation validates our ongoing commitment to closing education equity gaps for our talented students, through intentional efforts and proven services,” said Fresno State President Saúl Jiménez-Sandoval.
Excelencia in Education, the nation’s premier authority on efforts accelerating Latino student success in higher education, announced the certification last fall. The organization promotes Latino student achievement, conducts analysis to inform educational policies, and advances institutional practices while collaborating with those committed and ready to meet the mission. Launched in 2004 in the nation’s capital, Excelencia has established a network of results-oriented educators and policymakers to address the U.S. economy’s needs for a highly educated workforce and engaged civic leaders.
