(February 2, 2010) – The California State University is inviting students, faculty, alumni, employees and friends of the system to become bloggers and share their university story. The CSU Voices and Views blog will highlight personal stories on a range of topics including educational quality, access for students, the impact on California, and environmental sustainability. Readers will be able to discuss the entries through moderated comments.
The first submission is a video blog by CSU Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer Jeri Echeverria. In the video, Echeverria discusses the CSU Graduation initiative and shares her own story as a first-generation college student.
Later this month, the CSU anticipates several entries by participants in the Super Sunday program and CSU African American Initiative.
