The California State University (CSU) is pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached with the California Faculty Association (CFA), ending their systemwide strike after one day. Students are advised to look for messages from their instructors regarding adjustments to their classes. 

​“I am extremely pleased and deeply appreciative that we have reached common ground with CFA that will end the strike immediately," said CSU Chancellor Mildred García. “The agreement enables the CSU to fairly compensate its valued, world-class faculty while protecting the university system's long-term financial sustainability. With the agreement in place, I look forward to advancing our student-centered work — together — as the nation's greatest driver of social mobility and the pipeline fueling California's diverse and educated workforce." 

The CFA represents approximately 28,000 professors, lecturers, librarians, counselors and coaches across the CSU's 23 universities.

Further details regarding the agreement will be provided in the coming days.
