CSU Super Sunday is one of many events supported by the CSU community to increase the preparation, retention and graduation of African-American students. More than a million people have received this message through Super Sunday outreach efforts over the last 13 years with more than 100,000 congregants, students and families slated to do so again this year.

The year-round partnership between the CSU and African-American community leaders throughout the state provides additional outreach, support and preparation events such as college and career fairs, financial aid workshops, Cal State Apply clinics and more.

CSU resources will be provided to help students and families foster a college-going culture at home, including information about preparing for college, applying to a CSU campus and applying for financial aid.
