2021 Black History Month web banner

The critical importance of higher education, especially as students and their families deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, will be one of the themes of the California State University’s 16th annual Super Sunday virtual outreach to African American churches throughout the state.

This year, the Super Sunday outreach by CSU leaders, which includes Cal State San Bernardino President Tomás D. Morales, will be done virtually on Feb. 28 due to COVID-19 safety measures and travel restrictions.

Morales will share video messages to Allen Chapel Church in Riverside and the Juniper Avenue Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Fontana, which will be played during the churches’ online services.

The Super Sunday outreach enables the CSU’s continued connection with nearly 100 faith-based communities and organizations throughout the state. The program fosters the university’s commitment to access and opportunity for underrepresented students throughout California, providing important information about college entry and the upward mobility afforded by a CSU degree.

The CSU Super Sunday 2021 message will highlight:

  • How CSU campuses are navigating the unforeseen difficulties of this year to support students;
  • The CSU’s continued commitment to achieve the goals of the Graduation Initiative 2025, the university’s plan to increase graduation rates, eliminate equity gaps in degree completion and meet California’s workforce needs; and
  • The accessibility, affordability and transformative power of the CSU.
