Special Programs

CSU, Chico, above all else is a center for active and lifelong learning. We maintain an unshakeable focus on student learning; we want our students to learn and succeed. In that effort, we focus on the total education experience of our students and we recognize the learning environment as larger than the classroom. Indeed, we continue to develop high-quality, innovative learning environments both inside and outside the classroom.

Chico sees its residential context as an opportunity to create active and distinctive settings for student learning. We purposefully employ campus resources to enhance teaching and learning, especially outside the classroom. These complementary learning opportunities augment our academic programs and allow students to increase their levels of academic, intellectual, cultural, social and civic engagement, and personal development.

The Chico complementary learning opportunities—enriching educational experiences—include:

Academic / Intellectual Development

Cultural Development

Social Engagement

Civic Engagement

Personal Development
