The Black Chamber of Commerce of Orange County honored Cal State Fullerton for 60 years of helping students succeed. PBS So Cal and USO also were honored at the organization’s annual banquet Sept. 9.
“Tonight, we honor our respective histories, and at Cal State Fullerton, it is impossible to do so without recognizing the incredible Titan leaders whose shoulders we stand upon today,” President Mildred García told the crowd, referring to Jewel Plummer Cobb and Milton Gordon, former CSUF presidents who died in the past year.
“The Black Chamber has been a significant partner of Cal State Fullerton for the 40th, 50th and now 60th anniversary celebrations,” said Bobby McDonald ’75, longtime chamber director and a former Alumni Association president. “ ‘Titans take care of Titans’ has been a motto of mine since graduation. It is an honor to keep the tradition going as Titans reach higher. Cal State Fullerton is a continued strong leading force for education, leadership, research and diversity.”
CSUF among nation’s ‘most innovative’ institutions
U.S. News & World Report cites Cal State Fullerton among the nation’s “most innovative” institutions.
In the magazine’s 2018 Best Colleges rankings, CSUF is tied for 25th on the list of “Most Innovative Schools,” which includes Caltech, Carnegie Mellon, MIT, Stanford and USC.
The rankings are determined by a peer-assessment survey in which college presidents, provosts and admissions deans were asked to nominate universities “that are making the most innovative improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology or facilities.”
CSUF also retains its place on the magazine’s list of “national universities” at 202 overall and 109th among top public schools.
In graduate school rankings, Cal State Fullerton ranks fourth in nursing-anesthesia and 20th in nursing-midwifery.
