Student Success

Your Success is Our Goal

We work collectively to share resources, and enhance your opportunities. So you can find purpose and thrive in your experience at CSU. Think of us as a community who supports you through:

  • Access to programs
  • Engaging you with people who make CAS unique
  • Opportunities tailored to your needs, wants, and desires

We welcome your input and look forward to getting to know each of you individually.

Take a moment to learn about how we honor our agricultural history and evolve new traditions to mark how we are growing together.

Become an Ag Peer Mentor

  • Selected applicants will spend a semester in training to develop cultural competencies, mentoring and leadership skills.
  • In the second semester, Ag Mentors will engage with up to four Peer Mentees.
  • Building community and learning from one another inspires growth and camaraderie.

Get Involved with United in STEMM

  • The overarching goal of the program is to connect students of color in STEMM disciplines more intentionally with their colleges, industry partners, and with alumni and professionals of color, as well as eliminate graduation and persistence gaps for students of color.
