A brief description of the programs sponsored by the institution to support underrepresented groups within the faculty:

CSU, Chico does not have any formalized programs to support underrepresented groups within the faculty solely. There was once a women's faculty group and a support group for women administrators. However, underrepresented faculty can find support through the various faculty and staff associations such as the Black Faculty and Staff Association, the Chican@/Latin@ Council, the GLBT Faculty and Staff Association, and the Transgender Task Force. Faculty who are members of underrepresented groups who have participated in the Faculty and Staff Diversity Academy as well as the Faculty and Staff Diversity Summit also remark on the benefits of taking part in such professional activities in regards to the networking and mentoring relationships they develop with other members of the faculty and staff across campus.
