For more than a decade, the CSU has partnered with faith-based leaders to host Super Sunday during the month of February. CSU leaders bring an empowering message to churches throughout California about the importance of preparing for college. The next CSU Super Sunday is taking place on February 17, 2019. New Dawn Vallejo Corporation will partner with Friendship Missionary Baptist Church to present Super Sunday as well as provide additional college preparatory materials to middle and high school students during this event.
Super Sunday is a groundbreaking program that, at its core, helps CSU cultivate a relationship with children, high school students, their families and adults as a catalyst for deeper engagement. It’s an opportunity for the CSU system and campus leaders to share our message directly with underserved populations in their communities where they live, work and worship. It demonstrates our pledge to accessibility and our value of the religious and cultural institutions that have been a mainstay for so many.
CSU’s direct engagement helps to break down misconceptions, acknowledge common and unique challenges, and makes them approachable. Most importantly, they can communicate how a degree in higher education is attainable and how they can join in making the dreams for all children a reality.
