CSUSB was well represented by about a dozen undergraduate and graduate students and four biology department faculty: Michael Chao, Heidy Contreras, Joseph Heras and Anna Zelaya.
Mike Stull (entrepreneurship) was interviewed about the establishment of the the Entrepreneurial Development Services and Resource Center in downtown San Bernardino, José Muñoz (sociology) co-wrote a paper on STEM dean’s responses to barriers faced by that Latiné/x/a/o contingent faculty at HSIs, and Yawen Li (social work) and Kenneth Shultz (psychology) co-wrote a study on the adoption of electronic health records by adult day services.
The training, which will take place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Thursday, July 24-Aug. 10, and consist of lectures and laboratory work, will take place at CSUSB, with field work led by the Coachella Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District.
Guillermo Escalante (kinesiology) was interviewed about the use of anabolic steroids, José Muñoz (sociology) co-wrote a report on the issues raised at the Conference for Latinx Contingent Faculty Members, and Brian Levin (criminal justice) was quoted in an article about why some people of color are drawn to white supremacy.
The project is intended to produce university collaboration and, in particular, create a research network of HSIs interested in tackling the challenges that face their students in online settings in STEM.
The CSUSB School of Computer Science and Engineering and its military partners offer learning and job opportunities for STEM majors. A scheduled visit to Edwards Air Force Base is set for May 31 for ROTC students and STEM majors in partnership with the university’s Air Force ROTC.
When asked what motivates CSUSB professor of chemistry Kimberley Cousins, her answer is simple. “Our students,” she says.
Meredith Conroy (political science), Guy Hepp (anthropology), Frances Berdan (anthropology emerita) and Stuart Sumida (biology) were mentioned in recent news coverage, and Brittany Bloodhart (psychology) published some of her research.
