Welcome to an early version of the Knowledge Center, an online resource being developed by the CSU Student Success Network. The Knowledge Center will be rolled out in full in 2021 and will provide curated, synthesized, and succinct information and links to support faculty, staff, and administrators in adopting equity-minded and student-centered approaches on their campus.

 “Equity, Fairness, and Parity” in the CSU System: A Conversation with Dr. Leece Lee-Oliver

By Connie Tan

The convergence of a global pandemic and pervasive patterns of racial injustice has magnified the deep structural and social inequities in the United States. In this interview, Dr. Leece Lee-Oliver (Blackfeet, Choctaw, Wyandot, Cherokee), assistant professor of Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies and American Indian Studies and director of American Indian Studies at Fresno State University, explores the context for and implications of racial equity work in the California State University (CSU). Other interviews by the CSU Network addressing equity in the CSU include conversations with Dr. Frank Harris III, Dr. William Franklin and Dr. J. Luke Wood, and a student plenary at the CSU Student Success Network Conference in 2020.

Supporting Undocumented Students in the CSU

By Jaquelyn Caro-Sena

Undocumented students* in colleges and universities face an array of challenges unique to their immigration status including a high risk of COVID-19 exposure, economic insecurity, lack of access to financial aid, volatile immigration policies, and discriminatory policies and practices at various campus levels. Each year, 27,000 undocumented high school seniors graduate from California schools, but less than 10% pursue higher education. At the postsecondary level, there are up to 70,000 undocumented students in the California Community Colleges, approximately 9,500 in the California State University (CSU), and about 4,000 at the University of California.
