• Welcome

    Welcome to Where Opportunity Comes Full Circle (or Full Circle Project for short), a project funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The Full Circle Project is a comprehensive approach by California State University, Sacramento (Sacramento State), the Department of Ethnic Studies and the Asian American Studies program to implement a strategically focused, campus-wide effort to improve retention and graduation rates of underrepresented Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) and other high-need students. The Full Circle Project aims to assist students throughout his or her entire college careers, and provide ample opportunities to engage in service both on and off campus to enhance their university experience.

  • About Us

    The Full Circle Project is based on a framework developed by the Institute of Higher Education Leadership & Policy, as well as the quality research conducted by the Office of Institutional Research, both at Sacramento State. In addition, the guiding principles of this project are consistent with best practices recommended in the research literature, as well as successful models at Sacramento State found in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) and the Cooper-Woodson College Enhancement Program. Our efforts serve to create a new campus environment that leads students beyond just their first year at Sacramento State. This project provides students with solid academic coursework, strong advising support, intentionally planned leadership options and co-curricular service learning incentives to engage in campus, community-based service activities, and career opportunities.

  • Mission

    The mission of the Full Circle Project is to provide a student-centered approach to steadily increase the graduation rates of underrepresented Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) and other high-need students through rigorous coursework, academic support, intentional student organization and leadership opportunities, career planning and meaningful community engagement.
