A Student Success Symposium for LGBTQIA2S+ focused student services professionals, researchers, faculty, and students.

Inspired by conversations at our 2022 CSU Student Success Network Conference and ongoing conversations in the CSU, the Network is excited to announce a two-day, in-person LGBTQIA2S+ Student Success Symposium, March 7-8, 2024 in Sacramento, for LGBTQIA2S+ focused student services professionals, researchers, faculty, and students from across the CSU. Like our annual conference, this symposium will be a space for cross-system conversations where participants will share knowledge and practices related to advancing LGBTQIA2S+ student equity and well-being.

We aspire to move from conversation to change through action-oriented dialogues as we imagine and collaborate on ideas to work towards a CSU where LGBTQIA2S+ students can thrive.

Registration Fees:

Registration for non-student attendees will be $100 and will include attendance at the two day symposium and breakfast and lunch on both days during the event. Dinner will also be provided on the 7th. Additionally, for the first 100 registrants, two nights of lodging at the conference venue will be included. Registrants beyond the first 100 will be responsible for securing their own lodging.
