Public Affairs & Publications

Sharing Our Story

Providing information about our students, faculty, staff, and alumni is at the center of what we do. We share their stories—their aspirations, challenges, and successes. We also publicize the achievements of our campus and our graduates, and help readers understand the impact Chico State has on the region, the state, and the nation.

Public Affairs and Publications manages the University's outbound communication and online presence. It also produces several print and online publications for the University, including Excellence at CSU, Chico, Inside Chico State, and Chico Statements.

Please visit the Public Affairs and Publications website for the latest university news and information.
