Virtual Learning for CSU Students will be Supported by Gift of Logitech Headsets




The California State University (CSU) announced today the receipt of a gift of 2,300 Logitech headsets to support the virtual learning experience for students throughout the university.

To safeguard the health and well-being of students and employees, this fall all CSU campuses will offer the vast majority of instruction in virtual modalities. Campuses are increasing investments into IT hardware and software and faculty and staff are participating in professional development opportunities to provide a rich virtual learning experience for students. This generous gift from Logitech will further aid students as they pursue their higher education goals.

The headsets will be delivered to all 23 CSU campuses over the summer and will be distributed at no cost to students needing additional tools to support success in a virtual learning environment.

“We are grateful to Logitech for their demonstrated commitment to student success and their generous donation on behalf of CSU students," said Michael Berman, CSU's chief information officer. “These headsets will help students concentrate on their coursework and engage more fully in a virtual classroom setting."

“Logitech has the products to make learning at home easier for all students so we know our headsets will help with this transition," said Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility and head of education solutions at Logitech. “For students who may be sharing their learning spaces with others, it's important they stay focused. We are proud to support students in their academic endeavors by providing them the tools they need to continue their coursework without interruption."

Ensuring students have the opportunity to be successful is the foundation of the CSU's Graduation Initiative 2025.
