Student Engagement & Well-Being

Basic Needs Initiative is central to the Graduation Initiatives effort to address student engagement and well-being.  This full-scale, systemwide effort takes a holistic look at students' well-being both inside and outside the classroom, from housing and food security to mental health. Campuses ar​e working collectively to find better ways support CSU students on their path to graduation.


All 23 campuses have a food pantry or food distribution program.

More than two-thirds of CSU campuses offer on-campus emergency housing or vouchers for off-campus housing.

14 CSU campuses raise donations from the community specifically to support students’ basic needs.
