The 18th CSU Symposium on University Teaching
March 13 & 14, 2015 at Cal State L.A.

Cal State LA is pleased to host this year’s CSU Symposium on University Teaching. Join us March 13 and 14, 2015. Our topic this year is GRIT. Students who set long-term goals and stick to them are likely to be successful in school and in life. They have GRIT. Grit is about determination and long-term focus in the face of challenge. How do we build 'grit' in our students? What campus conditions help graduation and persistence to degree? How do we get students to value struggle, failure and perseverance in the classroom?
