Office of the Dean
August 18, 2014
Welcome to Cal State Fullerton’s Irvine Campus. This fall semester promises to be a busy and productive one for our students, faculty and staff. We welcome the Ed.D. students from the College of Education who began classes during the summer. They join our three current graduate programs in FEMBA (Fully Employed M.B.A), M.S. Taxation and MSW (Masters in Social Work).
We are moving forward with the seismic retrofit on the building at 1 Banting to prepare it for remodeling and renovation for our programs. Shortly after the retrofit is completed in Spring 2015, we plan to begin construction on the inside of the building for occupancy in late fall 2015 or early 2016.
We have new staff joining us to include: Alfreda Hart in Facilities, Reception and the Switchboard, Charlene Keith as Assistant to the Dean, Susan Leavy – CAPS Counselor, Shelly Hsu – Graduation Specialist Advisor, Jonathan Snyder – Writing Center Tutor, and Koji Fukui – Math Tutor. Please stop by and see them if you need assistance.
This summer we honored Jackeline Reyes as our Spring 2014 Shea Homes Scholarship Winner. Jackeline is an MSW student and plans to graduate in 2015. She celebrated her award at a luncheon with the scholarship committee in June.
Our enrollments are high this semester and our CSUF classes are joined by 8 classes from Irvine Valley College. These students are enrolled in Accounting 1A, Economics 1, Economics 2, Math 10, Math 11. Psych 1, Psych 2 and Psych 10. We welcome the IVC students to our campus and encourage Cal State Fullerton students to cross-enroll in these classes if they need lower division classes we don’t offer.
Please join us on November 6 as we host the Dean’s List Reception to honor our spring 2014 students who attained a 3.5 grade point average with 12 units of coursework. This is a happy event where families can share in the excitement of honoring our high ranking students.
We welcome you to our campus. If you are thinking of returning to college or just beginning that adventure and want to come for a tour, please complete the online form at: http://www.fullerton.edu/irvinecampus/pages/tours.asp and we will set it up.
We look forward to partnering with you and helping you reach your educational goals!
