We’re Connectors 

Our Statewide Initiatives are:




We all have power to take on issues that can positively affect student learning, engagement, progression, and success. But it’s hard to do that in isolation. We end up without the relationships and evidence we need to navigate them successfully—and we often reinvent the wheel.

At the CSU Student Success Network, we create spaces for teams of middle leaders—students, faculty, staff, and administrators—to collaborate, experiment, and share evidence with each other. Teams come together to support system goals, such as increasing graduation rates; closing critical opportunity and outcomes gaps; and supporting equity-based inquiry and action.

Come be a part of a collaborative, cross-campus community run by middle leaders for middle leaders.



California EPFP is jointly administered by the Education Insights Center and the Center for California Studies at Sacramento State to support the development of a new generation of skilled, informed education leaders who can develop and implement effective policy. The program brings together approximately 20 professionals over the course of an academic year to explore critical topics related to the national program’s three pillars: policy, leadership, and networking. California EPFP is tailored to address particular challenges in the state through its focus on 1) connecting Pre-K-12, and postsecondary education and 2) connecting state policy development and local implementation needs. These connections will be supported through the selection of Fellows, networking opportunities, the curriculum and speaker series, and the applied projects that Fellows complete.

California EPFP is supported by the State of California and generous grants from The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert FoundationThe William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and College Futures Foundation.
