SDSU Gospel Fest, which was held for the first time in 2019, brings leaders from the faith-based community together with SDSU leaders with the goals of encouraging K-12 students to pursue higher education and of highlighting the California State University system’s Graduation Initiative 2025, designed to eliminate achievement gaps. Other CSU universities also partner with faith leaders on events that emphasize partnerships and the importance of higher education.
