Bicycling can equitably provide access to all our campuses while helping to reduce commuting expenses for all campus users.  You can literally ride your bike right up to the door of most campus buildings

CSU embraces the Vice President of Diversity’s Principles of Community.

We honor the inherent dignity of all people within an environment where we are committed to freedom of expression, critical discourse, and the advancement of knowledge.

The Campus Bicycle Advisory Committee (CBAC) meets monthly with representation from across department, colleges, campuses, and our city government.  Our committee provides an open forum to discuss, debate, and advance bicycle commuting at CSU while striving to remove any barriers that may exist for any campus user to enjoy our campuses with a bicycle.


We are accountable for our actions and will act ethically and honestly in all our interactions.

In 2017, CSU approved the Inclusive Physical and Virtual Campus policy ensuring inclusive facilities are constructed and/or renovated.  CSU has created accessibility guidelines and construction standards to ensure our buildings welcome commuters with amenities to reduce their need to commuter with a Single Occupancy Vehicle (SOV):

  • Lactation (Section 607.2)
  • Reflection(Section 609 – 611)
  • Showers (Section 608)
  • Breakrooms (Section 604)
  • All-Gender Bathrooms (Section 605)
  • Indoor Bike Parking (612)

Social Justice

We have the right to be treated and the responsibility to treat others with fairness and equity, the duty to challenge prejudice, and to uphold the laws, policies and procedures that promote justice in all respects.

CSU serves all — the students, employees, visitors, and residents that bicycle to-and-through our campuses.  We strive to create a safe and welcoming environment where bicycle commuting is supported and embraced as a means of relieving the financial burden of commuting while providing a healthy, active form of transportation.


We are responsible, individually and collectively, to give of our time, talents, and resources to promote the well-being of each other and the development of our local, regional, and global communities.

CSU engages our campuses by supporting bicycle safety events, encouragement campaigns, targeted enforcement, and active participation on the committee.  Locally, we engage in city and regional planning with respects to active planning efforts through presentations and public comment. Globally, we strive to make CSU a world class institution for bicycle commuting.


We create and nurture inclusive environments and welcome, value and affirm all members of our community, including their various identities, skills, ideas, talents and contributions.
