The Community of Academic Technology Staff (CATS) is collaborative community of practice and interest. Its primary goal is to provide professional development opportunities for the academic technologists at the 23 California State University campuses, to increase their knowledge, productivity, and professional effectiveness in service of their campus's  academic mission and the CSU's educational technology goals.


What We Do

CATS provides professional development and leadership opportunities to its members.

The centerpiece of these programs is the annual conference. Community members plan the program,  present, and conduct  workshops.

We provide the infrastructure to keep CATS members connected throughout the year so that they can continue to share expertise with peers on other campuses.

We also support opportunities for community members to collaborate on projects that address common problems.
