College students today regularly struggle to get their basic
needs met, and CSU students are no exception. At the start of
this academic year, the ASI Board of Directors identified hosting
a Basic Needs Forum as a strategic priority that we felt would
help inform students what is being done by their local and state
elected officials, and give them the chance to engage in the
discussion. Planning had begun for the event and invitations had
been sent out when the COVID-19 crisis forced the CSU system to
cancel on campus events and shift instruction to online in March.
