Welcome to the CSU Student Success Network

The CSU Student Success Network fosters innovation and experimentation, decentralized collaboration, and shared responsibility within the CSU system. It also seeks to establish rigorous quality controls and an evidence base for continued progress.

Equity in Action Grant Program

The Network’s Equity in Action Grant Program seeks to invest resources back into the system to identify, understand, and disrupt inequities, as well as focusing on opportunities for students to learn, engage, progress, and complete courses on time.

WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW

Grant Program

The Network’s Equity in Action Grant Program seeks to invest resources back into the system to identify, understand, and disrupt inequities, as well as focusing on opportunities for students to learn, engage, progress, and complete courses on time. The intention of this program is to draw faculty, staff, students, and middle level administrators to support innovative thinking, research, and evidence-based practices that lead to institutional change, which specifically address equity-related challenges.

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 builds relationships and knowledge exchange across the CSU.

A Virtual Conference October 13 and 14, 2021

Registration is free for all CSU faculty, staff, administrators, and students.

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).

Convenings

We bring people together from across institutions and roles to engage in conversations around shared problems of practice, because we learn best when we learn from one another.

Applied Research

Make sense of different aspects of students’ experiences in the CSU through applied research. Network research helps develop shared language and knowledge on key topics. Findings from this and all other Network activities are shared with CSU stakeholders to help bring about mutual understanding and evidence-based change.

We all have power to take on issues that can positively affect student learning, engagement, progression, and success. But it’s hard to do that in isolation. We end up without the relationships and evidence we need to navigate them successfully—and we often reinvent the wheel.

At the CSU Student Success Network, we create spaces for middle leaders—students, faculty, staff, and administrators—to collaborate, experiment, and share evidence with each other. Participants come together to support system goals, such as increasing graduation rates; closing critical opportunity and outcomes gaps; and supporting equity-based inquiry and action.

Come be a part of a collaborative, cross-campus community run by middle leaders for middle leaders.
