External Relations

The CSU is driven by the belief that a student’s chances of graduating should not be determined by their circumstance, background or status, but by their willingness to work hard and our determination to help them achieve their goals.

Through partnerships with P-12 schools, community colleges and faith-based and community organizations, the CSU is extending the reach of college-readiness efforts and helping to close the gaps.

What We Do

Our community collaborations help close opportunity gaps and increase the number of underserved students who attend and graduate from college.
