Chancellor Timothy White speaks to leaders of the African American Initiative during its quarterly meeting on Jan. 31.
Chancellor Timothy White will join CSU presidents, trustees and education officials during CSU Super Sunday events that will take place in predominantly African American churches throughout California during February.
"The CSU's commitment is stronger than ever to motivate and encourage African American students to prepare for college and earn a university degree," White said.
On Feb.17, White will speak during the 11 a.m. service at St. John Missionary Baptist Church in Bakersfield. On Feb. 24, White will take to the pulpit during the 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. services at West Angeles Cathedral in Los Angeles, and on March 10, he will address the congregation of Glad Tidings Church of God in Christ in Hayward during the 8 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. services.
The annual Super Sunday event is produced by the CSU African American Initiative - a partnership between CSU campuses and African American religious leaders with the goal of increasing college-going rates among African American students.
