The CSU Institute is CSU’s main Social Responsibility investment. Founded in 2003, the Institute initiated its activities with a social project that combined Education and Technology through computer training courses, which it continues offering today. Since its foundation, the project has served more than 20,000 people in the community.

As of its inception, the CSU Institute has been characterized by fostering the digital inclusion of youths and adults who are seeking entry into the labor market.

By expanding its activities over the course of its existence, the Project has accompanied the growth of the sponsor company, which increasingly values the importance of community relations and participation as a good corporate citizen in current realities.
