Office of the Dean
Welcome to Cal State Fullerton’s Irvine Campus. We are pleased to announce that CSUF has purchased 1 and 3 Banting in the Spectrum and is establishing our permanent home here. We have begun plans to renovate the building at 1 Banting and our students are excited at the prospect of more space and facilities. The summer and early fall have been quite busy for our campus as we hosted the signing ceremony of the STAR (Strategic Transfer Agreement) with Irvine Valley College and Saddleback College on August 22. This agreement will improve our ability to transfer and follow community college students from both campuses as they apply to our University.
On September 12th, President Mildred Garcia hosted a Mayor’s Roundtable on our campus which included several mayors of Orange County including Irvine Mayor Choi. This breakfast meeting enabled the mayors and staff to tour our campus and become acquainted with the academic and support programs available to south county students.
We welcome Dr. Dorota Huizinga to our campus. Most recently Dr. Huizinga served as the Associate Vice President for Research, Creative Activities and Technology at the Fullerton Campus. She will join us as Director of Special Projects and work directly with me on issues such as strategic planning, accreditation, new degree programs and grant activities. In addition, she will continue as principal investigator of the Biomedical/Biobehavioral Research Administration Development (BRAD) grant.
We are very proud of our PRactical ADvantage Communications student-run advertising and public relations agency as they were identified as among the nation’s “Agency Elite” by PR News in New York City on September 10. PRADvantage was one of four finalists in the category of Training and Education Program Award. PRADvantage received an honorable mention for its entry of a training program for project management software. The group is sponsored by Dr. Doug Swanson and Professor Pete Evanow from the College of Communications.
