CSU campuses raise graduation rates, but short on equity goals

California State University embraced an ambitious set of goals a few years back, goals to boost graduation rates and close racial equity gaps. But the CSU system, which includes Cal Poly-Humboldt, is seeing mixed success in reaching those goals by the intended 2025 deadline.
