Although the university has not yet taken steps to embed critical race theory into its main operations, university leaders have taken overtly political steps to advocate for anti-racist ideas. For instance, university leaders officially posted articles calling for the defunding of police. Additionally, CSU has also taken the symbolic step of launching its ‘Black Lives Matter’ programming with mural at Visual Arts Building. No mandatory Critical Race Training sessions are yet required of students. However, see developments below:
