Since 2013, the CSU5 has been developing new long-term, strategic approaches to the economic and community development of the Greater Los Angeles area. As part of that work, the CSU5 collaborates with regional partners to forge meaningful connections between education, professional practice and community life.

By combining the resources of five major universities, each with long and rich histories in Los Angeles County, the CSU5 is able to shape a brighter future for opportunity youth in the entire region.
