Resources for Students

The free workshops available through out the year are for undergraduate and graduate students to attend, as well as professors.

Attending a free workshop will: 

  • Strengthen multicultural and international perspectives across curriculum.
  • Redesign courses with a focus on student engagement.
  • Learn new techniques for the classroom. 
  • Incorporate new pedagogical approaches. 
  • Access online and face-to-face discussions with campus researchers and practitioners about: learning, teaching, and advising. 

CELT offers programs that prepare students for success through High Impact Practices:

  • First Year Experience (EOP-Summer Bridge)
  • Civic Engagement (CAVE)
  • Writing Intensives
  • Capstone Seminar
  • Collaborative Projects
  • Undergraduate Research
  • Learning Communities (Tutoring, Student Mentors)
  • Internships (seek the career center JobCat for internship listings)

A High Impact Practice is something that allows a student: to gain experience outside of the university practice, practice a leadership role, and enhances the awareness and understanding of diversity practices.

Each year grants are awarded to undergraduate students at CSU, Chico to complete original projects under the guidance of faculty mentors.  In recognition of their achievements, recent student recipients were invited to create a short presentation about their projects.
