Navigating Uncertainty Together: A Virtual Conversation Series. A discussion pertaining to what we learned from the virtual experience last term, the actions we will take to advance racial equity within and outside of the classroom, and how we can best support our students when they return to our virtual classrooms.” Conversations will address teaching and learning online (July 22), supporting student needs (August 5), and promoting student engagement in virtual campus spaces (August 19). Each conversation will take place from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. PDT, and is open to any CSU student, faculty, staff, or administrator. Registration is free. 

The second event is the First Annual CSU Student Success Network Conference: 'Building a Student-Ready Campus: Shared Opportunities for Equity and Transformation' will focus on practices and programs for building an equitable student-ready campus and will include faculty and practitioners from across the CSU system and the Chancellor’s Office. Registration opens July 31 and will be free.
