Critical to student success at the CSU, the Basic Needs Initiative takes a holistic look at students’ well-being both inside and outside the classroom, from housing and food security to mental health. We’re working together to find better ways support our students on their path to graduation.
The CSU is a national leader in studying the prevalence of food and housing insecurity as well as identifying and implementing solutions to support students’ basic needs. Explore some of the work being done to better understand these problems faced by college students at the CSU and across the country.Learn more about the study on housing-displaced and food-insecure students.
Staff, faculty, and administrators estimated displaced students at 8.7% and food insecure students at 21%; however, preliminary student survey results from one school showed a higher population (12% and 24%).
