CSUSB becomes the first public university in the nation to launch a blended comprehensive campaign that includes philanthropic fundraising and funding for grants and research.
The open house, which is free, is geared toward students, their families, faculty and counselors. It will be held from 6-8 p.m. Friday at the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration.
“The way we operate as a university will not look entirely the same as during our pre-pandemic days. However, the fact we will once again be able to interact face-to-face this fall, without a screen in between us, is a cause for celebration,” said CSUSB President Tomás D. Morales.
In this academic year alone, more than 10,000 students have saved nearly $2 million on textbook costs thanks to the Affordable Learning Solutions program at CSUSB.
The three grants, each worth $25,000, support various university programs, including the Veterans Success Center, Coyote First STEP, the Inland Empire Small Business Development Center and the Women’s Business Center.
Julia I. Lopez, one of California’s most impactful philanthropists and foundation leaders who has made a profound difference in the lives of students through her work with the College Futures Foundation, will be awarded a doctorate of humane letters.
Noted philanthropist and supporter of higher education throughout the world, Dr. Sang-Kyun Lee, CEO of South Korea-based Shin-Il Corporation and chairman of the Shin-Il Foundation, will be awarded an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters.
