CSU Bakersfield President's Monthly Campus Update

In this, our annual ovation issue, we proudly share with the campus and greater Bakersfield community a few of the accomplishments and post-CSUB plans of our graduating students.

Still others will intern or engage in research. We applaud our faculty who are advancing, cheer our staff who have achieved milestones in their careers at CSUB, and thank our community for its invaluable contribution to the success of our University.

Health Professionals Share Degree Paths
In the April Update, I shared with you information about the UCLA/Kern Medical Center Academic and Community Medical Conference held over a three-day period here at CSUB. Mark your calendars for a return conference in April 2012. Among the presenters in a variety of excellent workshops, including "Bakersfield IS the Big Time," were physicians, dentists, pharmacists, and healthcare specialists who attended local schools, continued on to professional schools, and returned as medical professionals to serve the Bakersfield community. I want to acknowledge and thank each of them for taking the time to share their paths to their degrees with the 400 local high school students who attended the conference:

Beautiful Bakersfield Award Acknowledges CSUB's Engineering Degree
The Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce's Beautiful Bakersfield Awards recognizes businesses, organizations, and individuals who work to enhance the quality of life and image of Bakersfield. CSUB had three nominations in two categories. The Bakersfield Jazz Festival was nominated in the Arts-Group category. In the Education category were Hoopfest, an outreach of our Physical Education and Kinesiology Department to foster youth, and Julio Blanco, Dean of the School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Engineering, for the Computer Engineering degree. The Beautiful Bakersfield Awards presented its Crystal Camelia to Dr. Blanco in recognition of the impact of the first four-year engineering degree to be offered in Bakersfield which will begin this fall. Please join me in thanking and congratulating Dr. Blanco on the award, Dr. Doug Davis for his contributions to enhancing the quality of life through music, and Kris Grappendorf, lecturer in Physical Education and Kinesiology, for connecting our student-athletes with local foster youth. Each of these is a win for our campus and a win for our community.

Honorary Degree Call for Nominations
I am calling for nominations for the honorary doctorate degree to be awarded by the CSU Board of Trustees (BOT) and CSU Bakersfield at Spring commencement in 2012. Upon approval of the BOT, each CSU campus may recommend and award two honorary degrees each year. An honorary doctorate degree may be awarded to individuals whose achievements and/or service exemplify the highest ideals of the CSU. There is no restriction on the nominee's field of endeavor or geographic residence.

I invite faculty, staff, students, alumni, members of the CSUB Foundation Board, the President's Community Advisory Council, and friends of the University to submit to the Office of the President:

  1. a signed letter providing reasons for the recommendation, referencing the selection criteria, and specifying the degree to be awarded; and
  2. a copy of the candidate's resume, curriculum vitae, or biography with a history of accomplishments and contributions.

Once nominations are submitted, the process is confidential. Our campus honorary degree process is available at Please note that the CSU discourages letters of support, as such solicitations "could place the Board, the system, and the campus in a difficult position if the nomination were not approved."

It is the policy of the CSU that honorary degrees are not awarded to previous recipients of honorary degrees awarded by the CSU, or to incumbent elected officials, members of the CSU Board of Trustees, the CSU chancellor, or campus presidents. For the complete CSU guidelines as well as a listing of past honorary degree recipients, please visit

Kindly submit your nominations in writing by October 3. Should you have questions, please contact Evelyn Young, Executive Assistant to the President, at 654-2241 or
