The Student Success Task Force examined best practices and effective models within higher education throughout the nation to improve educational achievements in California. The task force produced a Final Report that was adopted by the board of governors and was presented to the Legislature in February 2012. Senate Bill 1456 (Lowenthal), the Student Success Act of 2012, was approved 33-1 by the state Senate in May 2012. The bill will help make important services more accessible to students, allowing for a greater chance of success. It has moved to the state Assembly and will be voted on by the Assembly Committee on Higher Education on June 19.
