C-ALT is committed to CSU’s foundational principle of inclusive excellence. We support learning analytics projects that aim to protect diversity, we welcome value and affirm all members of the CSU community. We are committed to using analytics for ethical purposes. We use theory-informed design to gain insight into student behavior and then design interventions that transform all students into self-efficient learners.
