Jeremy Murray’s 10 a.m. Monday history class was in session when unexpected visitors entered the classroom about 30 minutes into his lesson.

“How are you doing?” said CSUSB President Tomás D. Morales, as he invited an entourage of about two dozen faculty and administrators into the classroom.

“We are all here – faculty, senior administrators, students – to present the 2022-23 Outstanding Service Award to Dr. Jeremy Murray for his extensive and sustained contributions to our students, to this campus,” said Morales, as Murray looked on in surprise, and his students, all attending virtually on Zoom save for one, watched on the class’ livestream.

The soaring, snow-filled mountains in Southern California provide superb images for picture postcards. And the same mountains provide just the right canvas, experts say, for dangerous avalanches following the record-breaking snowfall in February.

“We’re talking about a lot of snow at high elevation and steep terrain, and it’s the perfect ingredient for avalanches,” Claire Todd, a professor and the chair of geological sciences at Cal State San Bernardino, said Tuesday, Feb. 28.

CSUSB professor writes on qualitative inquiry
Qualitative Social Work

Deidre Lanesskog (social work) cowrote an article that reads, in part, “Researchers can be a quarrelsome lot; contentions about theory, method, and practice serve to move ideas forward and propel the process of inquiry. So, when nearly 800 scientists from around the globe, representing a wide swath of disciplines, unite to advance a consensus statement, it piques an interest, especially when the topic strikes at core scientific shibboleth for those who employ quantitative methods. The article that raised the flag for me, in a 2019 issue of Nature, was aptly entitled ‘Scientists up against statistical significance.’”
