We learn best when we learn from one another, because the expertise resides in our system.
Convenings provide opportunities for middle leaders in the CSU to come together across institutions and roles to focus on issues of practice that affect students. During the day-long convenings, participants explore key issues, discuss evidence-based strategies, and take steps to create action plans. Convenings support the cultivation of cross-campus, cross-role relationships and resources that can strengthen student success efforts.
Each convening is centered on a topic representing an issue affecting campuses across the system. Past convening topics have included: Transfer, Student Success in the First Year, Data Use, and College Readiness. Meetings are designed to stimulate conversations and encourage collaboration.
Faculty, staff, and administrators from across the system come together to explore what they can learn from, and what they can teach their CSU colleagues.
Equity. Consider ways (in)equity manifests on campus.
Knowledge. Share successes and challenges in implementing student success efforts; explore promising strategies that advance evidence-based equitable student success efforts on campus.
Relationships. Build relationships with colleagues at your campus and from across the CSU who are involved in campus-level efforts supporting equitable student success.
All reasonable travel, food, and lodging costs are reimbursed by the CSU Student Success Network. Travel must be approved and arranged in accordance with each campus’s policies and guidelines.
Navigating Uncertainty Together is a conversation series launched in summer 2020 for students, faculty, staff, and administrators to learn and problem-solve together about the urgent opportunities and challenges we face this year. Join us as we discuss what we are learning from our virtual experiences, the actions we will take to advance equity within and outside of the classroom, and how we can best support our students in a virtual environment.
