Native American Initiative

The goal of the Native American Initiative is to increase the number of students from Tribal Nations who enroll and graduate from the CSU.
In March 2006, the CSU held a summit with leaders representing 40 California tribes to discuss strategies to build a college going culture among Native American families. Recommendations from the summit included the convening of regional meetings to discuss educational partnerships between CSU campuses and tribal communities.

The CSU supports and participates in the conferences of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) and the California Indian Education Conference.
