Cathy Baur

In recognition of the key role that Cathy Baur has played over the years in connecting our university to so many external friends and community partners, President Neufeldt established The Cathy Baur Student Philanthropy Award on Thursday, June 18, 2020. 

Cathy‚Äôs dedication and commitment to the University, and efforts to foster a spirit of philanthropy, from university anniversary celebrations to the tremendous success of the Forward Together campaign, Giving Day and so much more, have left a deep impact here at CSUSM.  In recognition of her deep passion for Cal State San Marcos we will annually recognize a CSUSM student, or student group, who has been highly engaged in philanthropic activities and/or has demonstrated leadership by supporting or implementing a fundraising program. 

The inaugural award was presented to Jessica Harloe, the CSUSM Foundation Board Student Representative.
