California Higher Education Student Summit

The California Higher Education Student Summit, currently in its twenty-second year, is an annual conference hosted by the California State Student Association that empowers students to become change agents in advocating for an accessible, affordable, and quality system of public higher education for all Californians.

During a two day conference held approximate to the state capitol, students participate in various training sessions on: student leadership and governance, higher education and public policy, and conducting successful lobby visits in preparation for Advocacy Day at the Capitol. In addition, students are provided the unique opportunity to collaborate and network with state legislators and student leaders from all of CSU’s 23 campuses.
