Giles T. Brown, emeritus associate vice president
of academic affairs, dean of graduate studies and professor
of history, recently made his third charitable gift annuity
to the Giles T. Brown Endowment for Graduate Studies.
$120,000 supplemental donation will help further and enhance
the quality of graduate work through funding of grants and
visiting scholars, travel expenses for graduate students,
faculty or administrators to present papers, and payment
of page costs for publication of student research results
in journals and thesis awards. The Giles T. Brown Endowment
was created in 2002 to recognize the efforts of CSUF graduate
students in the completion of their theses.
On Thursday, Dec.
8, the Academic Senate unanimously approved a resolution
and commendation honoring Brown’s service
to the university and involvement in the community.
