Recognizing Campus Authors

Faculty members and administrators feted for writing books in 2007

Color management, basic principles of taxation, persuasion, counseling skills and resistance to antibiotics. Those are a few of the topics tackled in nearly 50 books published in 2007 by Cal State Fullerton faculty members and administrators.

The authors were feted Feb. 29 during the university’s Ninth Annual Author Awards, sponsored by the offices of the President and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Pollak Library and the Faculty Development Center.

Benjamin Hubbard, emeritus professor of comparative religion, delivered the keynote address. Hubbard — who co-authored “An Educator’s Classroom Guide to America’s Religious Beliefs and Practices” (Greenwood Publishing) with James Santucci, professor of comparative religion, and John T. Hatfield — provided an overview of the hundreds of religions that can be found in Orange County.

Hubbard said that his son, a former schoolteacher and now principal, calls him every time he has a question about a student’s religion. His son asked him to write the book to serve as a quick reference guide for educators, and that’s what prompted Hubbard to pen his latest book.

“In a couple of pages in this book, you can get the overview of religions you hear very little about,” Hubbard said.
