Rationale: Trend analysis indicates that system-wide graduation rates for CSU have ranged from 4% to 6% above the institution-specific graduation rates for all disaggregated categories during the previous five years. There is no data or other information available to suggest that this trend will not continue. The above targets are 5% above the institution-specific targets for each category.
