Workshop Series on Supporting and Engaging Men of Color

Data, Practices, and Policies: Setting a Clear Institutional Agenda to Support and Engage Men of Color in the CSU

Join us on Friday, December 11 from 12:30 – 2:30 pm PST

Participation is free! Register your team by December 4, 2020.

The CSU Student Success Network is excited to partner with the USC Pullias Center for Higher Education in this workshop focused on creating a racially equitable campus ecosystem to engage and support men of color in the CSU system. During the workshop, campus teams will come together to discuss educational outcomes and experiences for men of color, explore research-based actions that support their success, and create data-driven action plans to improve services and support for men of color on their campuses. For this session, men of color include students who are from the following ethnic and racial groups: African Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, and Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

Dr. Adrian Huerta and his team at USC are national experts on supporting men of color in higher education. At the workshops, they will share findings from their state-wide study that examined men of color programs and analyzed the functionality, effectiveness, and areas of growth for these programs.

Who can attend?

We invite one cross-role team of 6-8 individuals from each campus to attend. Participants can be involved in, or planning to be involved in, programs or services directly supporting men of color on their campus, or campus-based policies that may impact student persistence and retention. Teams can include faculty, staff, institutional research/effectiveness staff, department chairs, deans, and students, depending on your needs and plans. The workshop will include a focus on data collection and understanding program and institutional effectiveness; therefore we encourage including institutional research/effectiveness staff as part of the team.

Please contact us at with any questions.
