Cal State East Bay and the California State University system are partnering with 22 Bay Area churches on Sunday in an effort to increase the number of African-American students attending college.
For "Super Sunday," CSU presidents, trustees, professors, staff members will talk to congregations throughout the region about the importance of a college education.
