History of CATS

Established in 1998, the Community of Academic Technology Staff (CATS) is a collaborative Community of Practice. Its mission is to provide professional development opportunities for California State University academic technologists to increase their knowledge, productivity, and personal effectiveness in service of the educational technology goals of the 23 campuses. The CATS Executive Council guides the community's programs and events.

CATS supports a number of programs. The linchpin of these programs is the annual conference. This website provides in-depth information about each CATS program.
