Fresno State's Strategic Priorities: Priority Two


Invest in a dynamic environment to attract, develop, and retain talented and diverse faculty and staff.


We measure progress and success by analyzing metrics provided by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness, Faculty Affairs, Human Resources, and Organizational Excellence. We also participated in the Chronicle of Higher Education’s “Great Colleges to Work For” survey, a study designed to measure workplace strengths and recognize institutions that have built great places to work.
