García Takes Part in CSU Super Sunday Effort

Feb. 11, 2014

Cal State Fullerton President Mildred García will join California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White and other CSU presidents this month in giving talks before nearly 100,000 youth and their families throughout the state about the value of a college degree as part of CSU Super Sunday activities.

The CSU has partnered with more than 100 African American churches to boost access, achievement and completion of historically underserved populations. 

"We are committed to bolstering the number of pathways to a university education for traditionally underrepresented students and producing highly skilled graduates that will help meet the nation's changing workforce needs," said White. "Higher education changes the trajectory of life and by working with our partners throughout the state during Super Sunday, we can ensure that students are ready to enroll and succeed in college."

Launched in 2005, CSU Super Sunday is an annual event led by leaders throughout the 23 CSU campuses who work together in a united effort to give underrepresented students the tools needed to successfully enter college. To date, almost 500,000 churchgoers have received information about financial aid, the 23 CSU campuses and the path to achieve academic success at the university.

White will speak during the 10:45 a.m. Feb. 16 service at Saints Rest Missionary Baptist Church in Fresno and at the 10:30 a.m. Feb. 23 service at Trinity Baptist Church in Los Angeles. García will address the 10:30 a.m. Feb. 23 service at Christ Our Redeemer AME in Irvine.

More information about Super Sunday is available online.
