We learn best when we learn from one another, because the expertise resides in our system.

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. During the day-long convenings, participants explore key issues, discuss evidence-based strategies, and take steps to create action plans. Convenings support the cultivation of cross-campus, cross-role relationships and resources that can strengthen student success efforts.

Each convening is centered on a topic representing an issue affecting campuses across the system. Past convening topics have included: Transfer, Student Success in the First Year, Data Use, and College Readiness. Meetings are designed to stimulate conversations and encourage collaboration.

Faculty, staff, and administrators from across the system come together to explore what they can learn from, and what they can teach their CSU colleagues.
