Strategic Fundraising: Working collaboratively with University Advancement, the Cal State Fullerton Philanthropic Foundation Board of Governors has identified seven universitywide initiatives it will focus on over the next year — acquiring land, preserving Orange County's archaeological and paleontological collection, expanding the oral history program, growing the nursing program, strengthening Titan pride throughout the campus community, developing assistive technology for seniors and enhancing education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

2010 Goals

Pam Hillman, vice president for University Advancement, maps out the seven universitywide initiatives.

Preserving the Past

A team of university scientists are involved in the curation and preservation of Orange County’s vast archaeological and paleontological collection, portions of which date back 60 million years.

Carl's Jr. Legacy

The Karcher Family/Southern California Food Visionaries and Culture Project is one of the Center for Oral and Public History's latest works. The center has made thousands of oral histories on myriad subjects.

Growth Plan

In the face of a nationwide nursing shortage, CSUF has established a School of Nursing. Students in the university's nursing programs today number about 900 — 1,200 percent more than in 1998.

No Place Like Home

As the head of the Beverly Miller University Assistive Technology User Research Project, Echo Chang is developing assistive technology for older adults. The effort jumpstarts support for CSUF’s California Assistive Technology Laboratory.
