Cal State East Bay is one of the country’s most transformative colleges. According to Money Magazine’s recent ranking, the university is No. 14 in the nation for helping its students achieve upward mobility.

“It’s not surprising that elite schools report high graduation rates or alumni success,” the magazine stated. “What’s impressive is when a college helps students do far better than would be expected from their academic and economic backgrounds.”

It’s known as “value add” or “social mobility.”

The magazine used information from the U.S. Department of Education, the college resource website Peterson’s and PayScale.com to create the ranking. Colleges were included on the 2018 list based on value-added scores for graduation rates, graduate earnings and student loan repayment.

According to the listing, Cal State East Bay graduates on average have early career earnings of $53,900 and out-earn their non-CSUEB peers by $7,800.

Other California State Universities on the list include: San Jose State University (No.4); California State University-Chico (No. 21); and California State University-Stanislaus (No. 36).
