CSU faculty, staff and students receive priority enrollment on a space available basis. The ECC functions as a lab school, so this program has the dual advantage of significantly improving the research, teaching and  learning opportunities for CSU students and faculty in diverse academic programs while enhancing the child-care options for campus parents.
