& Events - EDU Summit 2021​

The EVENT:​​​​​​

This CSUEA Summit (in partnership with Dolby, Adobe, and the CSU Hospitality & Tourism Alliance) brings together thought leaders in the entertainment and events industries to share insights on culture, technology, and hiring trends for a brighter post-pandemic future.

The California State University Entertainment Alliance keeps our 23 campuses at the forefront of innovation in entertainment education. Our programs and partnerships help students break into the entertainment industry in a meaningful way. CSU campuses are majority-minority, offering diversity of thought, culture, and background to potential employers. Supporting emerging talent from the CSU ensures representative, inclusive, and diverse content creators are given a shot at changing the face of the industry from the bottom up.​​

This event will have programming for Faculty, Technical Staff, and Students!​
