About Science and the CSU

Welcome to the Science and the CSU, a blog that focuses on science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and related realms in The California State University.

Through news, features, updates and insights, Science and the CSU covers the CSU’s systemwide initiatives – for example, in biotechnology, ocean science, water resources and agriculture. It also spotlights various activities, events, resources, research and discoveries at the CSU’s 23 campuses.

In laboratories, at field sites and through programs throughout the CSU, students, faculty and collaborating scientists advance California’s capacity to address key issues in health, the environment, energy, telecommunications, and climate.

As Science and the CSU provides in-depth and timely articles on science-related topics within the CSU, it extends the reach of CSU’s array of blogs, which includes Research Updates, Voices and Views, and Commitment to Sustainability.
