The CSU and AT&T Road to College Tour was financed by a $500,000 grant from AT&T to the CSU Foundation. The goals of the Road to College Tour were to support the CSU in its efforts to increase underserved student access to the university, and to help AT&T build a pipeline of future college-educated workforce professionals.
The bus tour stopped at selected middle and high schools throughout the state. At each stop, a team of CSU students and CSU staff members assisted students, teachers and counselors with exploring a variety of information. Students at each grade level were exposed to the college preparation process by creating their own "roadmap" through an interactive experience on state-of-the-art laptops. They also explored career interests and courses of study and what the CSU's different campuses offer.
