The CSU Student Success Network offers day-long convenings that bring together teams of faculty, staff, administrators, and students from across the system to learn about shared problems of practice, discuss evidence-based strategies, and identify opportunities for improvement.

Why focus on data and information in regional data partnerships?  -  For the purposes of this convening, regional cross-system partnerships are defined as those focusing on student learning, engagement, progression, and success across education systems. In order to meet their goals and objectives, partnerships need data and information. Data and information are particularly important when addressing equity imperatives in the system. This convening will help participants from the CSU understand the types and foci of regional partnerships across the state, and ways to use information to strengthen their ability to close equity gaps.

Intended Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will understand a range of different goals, objectives, and structures of regional cross-system partnerships, their potential value, and the roles that the CSU can play within them.
  • Participants will identify strategies that will encourage their productive and effective engagement in regional education partnerships, focusing specifically on the use of effective data and information sharing to support equity-based inquiry.
  • Participants will collectively identify common opportunities and challenges faced by the CSU within regional education partnerships, particularly with regard to data and information sharing.
  • Participants will develop an approach for moving their regional education partnerships forward by starting an “information sharing action plan.”

Who should attend?We invite one cross-role team of 3-5 individuals from each campus to attend, with a focus on individuals involved in, or planning to be involved in, cross-system regional education partnerships (or related workgroups). That could include faculty, staff, institutional researchers, department chairs, directors, deans, students, or similar.

If you are unsure about whether your campus has already registered a team, please contact us and we will work with you to coordinate registrations. If more than one campus team wants to attend the event, additional teams may be invited to participate, as capacity allows.

The meeting is free for participants - The CSU Student Success Network will reimburse campuses for travel costs according to CSU travel guidelines. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Please refer to our travel reimbursement guidelines for more information.
