Strategic Direction 3
Mobilize Partnerships to fuel and expand community engagement
Goal 1: Seek out new external partnerships
to expand public participation and political engagement opportunities.
Initiate systemwide conversations with organizations that promote public
participation on policy issues and examine suitable roles or resources for the CSU.
Provide resources to campuses interested in engaging in community/campus
dialogue, public issue forums, and/or political engagement education for students and community.
Goal 2: Explore partnerships with other Chancellor's
Office programs that expand engagement efforts.
Identify ways community engagement currently is in alignment with emerging
state and federal priorities (e.g. veterans' social and economic issues, academic
preparation for pre K-12 youth), with the goal of preparing funding proposals and
encouraging new and/or strengthened alliances.
Advocate for shared decision-making on risk management policies between Divisions
of Academic Affairs and Business and Finance.
