The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

University of La Verne

Nestled along the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in Southern California, the University of La Verne is an independent university providing rich educational opportunities for both the academic and personal development of its students in a friendly, engaged setting. La Verne’s enrollment of nearly 8,800 students closely reflects Southern California’s diverse population. The University fosters learning and nurtures character by stressing the importance of a values-based education; provides students a better appreciation of the responsibilities and rewards of serving the human and ecological community; and promotes a continuing respect for differing cultural and philosophical perspectives. Students of color make up more than 53 percent of the University’s total enrollment, with the U.S. Department of Education having designated La Verne a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). Many members of its traditional undergraduate population are first generation students. Founded in 1891 as Lordsburg College by members of the Church of the Brethren, both the college and the agricultural community around it were renamed La Verne in 1917. Recognized as an outstanding provider of teacher education, over the years the college campus, curriculum and student body grew to meet the expanding higher educational needs of the region. While in time the Board of Trustees became independent of church control, the college never lost its commitment to service or its dedication to sound, people-centered, values-oriented education. It began offering off-campus degree programs in 1969 and the following year opened its College of Law. In 1971, La Verne started its campus accelerated degree program for adults, now known as CAPA. To best reflect these profound changes in size and scope, the institution reorganized in 1977 as the University of La Verne. Today, the University features four academic divisions – College of Arts & Sciences, College of Business & Public Management, College of Education & Organizational Leadership, and College of Law. The institution continues to expand, serving the needs of students via regional campus locations in Bakersfield, Burbank, Irvine, Ontario, Oxnard, San Luis Obispo and Victorville, and through on-site military centers at Point Mugu Naval Air Station and Vandenberg Air Force Base. It also has off-campus graduate degree and credential programs offered at learning centers and partnering businesses throughout the state as well as a nationally recognized online program. Across all campuses, colleges, programs and activities, La Verne’s mission statement remains at the heart of everything that happens at the University.
