USF moves East Bay campus to Pleasanton

The University of San Francisco has moved its East Bay campus, which offers classes for adult professionals seeking to complete a bachelor's degree or pursue a master's degree in one of three fields, from San Ramon to Pleasanton.

Graduate programs in nursing, education and management are offered.

The new location, at 6120 Stoneridge Drive, is within walking distance of the new Pleasanton BART station. The area is near the Stoneridge Shopping Center and several restaurants. Free parking is also available for students.

Most of the students range in age from their mid-to-late-20s to their 60s. The programs, designed for adult professionals, appeal to learners seeking to "gain more expertise and knowledge in their fields," said Desiree Shaw, director of the East Bay campus.

The program to complete the undergraduate degree, a bachelor of science in Organizations, Leadership and Management, is open to students who have completed 60 units elsewhere. A student admitted to the program is guaranteed to complete the bachelor's degree in two years or less.

USF East Bay offers educational counseling to students, advising them what courses they will need to take before starting at the university. The advice might include finishing prerequisite courses at a community college level before enrolling at USF East Bay.

Credit is also available for Police Office Standards and Training, military experience and some additional work experience.

The program, said Shaw, "honors knowledge and acknowledges practical skills." Classes meet once a week for four hours, with occasional Saturday classes and online coursework.

The move to Pleasanton offers more space and additional amenities for students, including six SMART classrooms with integrated networking, A/V equipment and wireless internet. Each classroom is equipped with a large ceiling-recessed screen and projector. The classrooms seat from 20 to 80 students. The professionally staffed library/computer lab offers assistance to students and faculty and is typically open four days a week.
