Keep Partnering | Office of Engagement
CSU’s land-grant mission to engage with external partners to serve the needs of local, state, national and international communities is more important than ever.
The following list of resources has been compiled to support university faculty and staff in adapting their engaged teaching, research, and service activities with external partners to virtual and socially distanced environments.
Resources within each category are listed in reverse order by publication date. Keep checking back for new resources as we learn about them.
If you know of a resource that should be added to this page, please let us know using this form.
