Sponsors & Partners


Meaningful partnerships are particularly important for a non-profit such as CSSA, which is constantly challenged by its limited funding, small staff, and nontraditional board of directors. Our coalition partners have similar goals and are engaged in statewide policy debates, co-hosting events, and engaging the media to increase public awareness of education policy issues.

CSSA utilizes the following public relations strategies in building partnerships with public, private, and non-profit entities:

  • Conduct campus visits to CSU campuses, attend Associated Students meetings.
  • Attend networking events at CSU campuses, in Long Beach, and in Sacramento.
  • Communicate with non-profit higher education advocacy groups and other statewide student associations.
  • Develop specific programs for student leaders to further interact with CSU Trustees.
  • Develop specific programs for student leaders to further interact with legislators and their staff.
  • Develop specific programs to incorporate and maintain new funding partners.
