Congratulations to the 2019 CHABSS Graduates!
The surfer, scholar, author, activist and CSUSM professor brings her indefatigable energy to telling the full story of surfing and indigenous people, particularly how these unfolding narratives intertwine to affect everyone on the planet.
CHABSS is pleased to announce Dr. Veronica Añover as our next Associate Dean of Curriculum, Academic Programs and Student Success.
Dr. Añover will begin her work as Associate Dean on July 29, 2019 and we are excited to have her join the CHABSS Dean's Office family.
Youwen Ouyang and Marisol Clark-Ibáñez first connected in a meaningful way almost a decade ago at a summer “boot camp” for
Cal State San Marcos faculty. Clark-Ibáñez was a coach for the program designed to introduce e-learning to faculty
members. Ouyang, eager to try something new, was the only science professor in a cohort
filled with colleagues from the sociology department.
Despite their vastly different academic fields – Ouyang in computer science, Clark-Ibáñez in sociology – the two hit it off immediately. It was the start of a close friendship, and a wonderful professional partnership that stands to benefit CSUSM students for years to come.
Daniela Carreon is the first person to graduate in the discipline of Ethnic Studies, which has been a minor at CSUSM since at least 2001 but which was officially approved as a major by the California State University chancellor’s office in December 2017..
