The Community of Academic Technology Staff (CATS) is collaborative community of practice and interest. Its primary goal is to provide professional development opportunities for CSU academic technologists to increase their knowledge, productivity, and personal effectiveness in service of the system's academic mission and their campus's educational technology goals. CATS was founded in 1998 by the CSU Center for Distributed Learning. Over 550 CSU staff participate in CATS programs.

The Community offers a variety of programs to its members, each of which is detailed on the CATS website.

Does your work at an institution of higher education involve enhancing the teaching and learning process through the use of technology? If so, you are invited to become a member of this thriving community. Please join.
