The CSU is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive campus environment where students from various backgrounds and identities can thrive. To support this mission, we have established several student collectives that serve as spaces for community-building, advocacy, and support.
Each collective plays a crucial role in addressing the unique needs and challenges faced by these student populations, promoting inclusivity, and creating a sense of belonging on campus.
