About the Program

Many CSU campuses lack the resources to explore cutting-edge technology in any systematic way. Coordinating work in these areas across campuses, and finding strategies to support “deep dive” pilots with communications to the entire system can help accelerate the speed of innovation, encourage good investments, and help us find out what doesn’t work faster so we don’t waste excess time and effort.

Cal State Innovate promotes innovative activities across the 23 campuses in collaboration with the California State University Chancellor’s Office. The program enables the development and diffusion of new and effective strategies and technology to promote better student outcomes, improve the student experience, and create greater administrative efficiencies.
