Giles T. Brown's donation to the Endowment for Graduate Students is one of several recent gifts to the university.

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.

The $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.

Brown’s contribution is one of many recent gifts to the university that fund colleges, departments, programs and projects. Others include:
The Dhont Foundation’s $100,000 donation ­— the organization’s second — to the Performing Arts Center. In recognition of the gift, one of the center’s dance studios will be named in the family’s honor.

The College of Engineering and Computer Science received $20,000 from Boeing — $10,000 each to the Minority Engineering Science Achievement (MESA) Engineering Program and the Boeing Dean’s Scholarships. Boeing also gave $27,000 to the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics for seven student scholarships and to fund a class to prepare pre-service elementary school teachers to teach science.

Stephen Hewitt has made the first of two gifts to the university in honor of his father, Alfred Hewitt — former lecturer in communications and retired editor at the Fullerton News Tribune — and his mother, Louise. The gift is being added to the existing Alfred and Louise Hewitt Journalism Fund and will bring its total to $25,000 —enough to endow a scholarship.
