Members of Cal State Fullerton’s Academic Senate have re-elected Leon J. Gilbert, professor of modern languages and literatures, chair of the faculty advisory body. His term of office continues through June 2004.

“I am very gratified to be re-elected as chair of the Academic Senate and to have that affirmation of continued confidence in my abilities,” says Gilbert, who noted that the state budget and its ramifications for Cal State Fullerton will be a continuing concern in the coming year. “However, if we work collegially, we’ll get through this, as we have done in previous tight budget years.”

The Placentia resident has been a member of the university faculty since 1970 and served as chair of his academic department from 1977-83 and 1996-99. For 13 years, he served as coordinator and associate dean for student academic affairs in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, and on an acting basis, directed Freshman Programs in 2001-02 and the University Honors Program in 2000-01.

In addition, Gilbert has been the campus’s faculty athletics representative to the NCAA since 1992 and currently is serving a three-year term as the Big West Conference representative on the NCAA Academics/Eligibility/Compliance Cabinet.

The educator earned his doctorate in German from the University of Colorado and co-authored the text “Single Subject Matter Assessment of Prospective Foreign Language Teachers: Report of the California State University Workgroup on Assessment of Foreign Language Teachers.” His reviews have been published by such journals as the Modern Language Journal and German Quarterly.

Joining Gilbert on the 2003-04 Academic Senate Executive Committee are Fullerton residents Jack W. Bedell, chair and professor of sociology, vice-chair; Diana W. Guerin, professor of child and adolescent studies, secretary; and David C. Wong, professor of economics, treasurer.

Members-at-large serving on the committee are: David R. Fromson of Brea, professor of biological science and associate dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics; Gerald E. Gannon of Fullerton, professor of mathematics; and Jane V. Hall of Laguna Beach, professor of economics.

J. Vincent Buck of Fullerton, as a statewide academic senator, also serves on the executive committee. Buck, a professor of political science, is one of three campus members who serve on the CSU Academic Senate. The others are William D. Meyer of Fullerton, professor of theatre and dance, and Barry Pasternack of Santa Ana, chair and professor of information systems and decision sciences.
