The Message of Preparation Continues

The CSU Super Sunday message has already reached 17 California churches in the first two weeks of February 2012.  The CSU Chancellor, presidents, trustees and other representatives have all taken to the pulpit to inform, to encourage and to inspire. 

Now in its seventh year, CSU Super Sunday is a key component of the CSU African American Initiative that brings together the university, churches and community groups.  Below are highlights from two Sundays, Feb. 5 and Feb. 12.
