Annual Conference

The CSU Student Success Network Conference is designed by and for middle leaders and students in the CSU. Its purpose is to advance equitable student success by providing faculty, staff, administrators, and students with an annual statewide opportunity to share actionable research, evidence, and practices for use or adaptation on our own campuses. The conference will take place in two installments this fall in a reimagined and virtual format.

September 25th, 2020 –  Student Success Conference 1

October 16th 2020 –  Student Success Conference 2

Convenings Icon


Convenings provide opportunities for middle leaders in the CSU to come together across institutions and roles to focus on issues of practice that affect students.

Middle Leadership Icon

Middle Leadership Academy

Forge deeper relationships with colleagues and develop skills for making change from where you sit as a member of the Middle Leadership Academy. The year-long Academy brings together campus-based teams in a collaborative and supportive environment to work on problems of practice. Together, teams identify common challenges faced by students, develop a shared vision to improve practices, and communicate about what works (and what doesn’t).

Applied Research Icon

Applied Research

Network researchers explore different aspects of students’ experiences in the CSU. Findings are shared with CSU stakeholders to help bring about mutual understanding and evidence-based change.
