2008-09 Annual Report on External Support to the CSU

System Highlights

  • AT&T Road to College Tour empowers students, parents,
    teachers and counselors with information about how to prepare for college. The tour, which moves about the state by way of a 40 foot biodiesel bus, garnered awards from the International Association of Business Communicators and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.
  • The Boeing Company contributed $35,000 for the CSU Informal Science Institutes Professional Development program and another $50,000 to the CSU Mathematics Professional Development Program. Both programs provide professional development in their respective fields for teachers of grades K-12 to improve academic achievement in Southern California’s students.
  • Mr. and Mrs. Stanley T. Wang, Trustee Emeritus, made a gift of $120,000 for the Wang Family Scholarship. This scholarship not only provides an opportunity for students to prepare for a role in the international business world, but it recognizes the increasing importance of international education and economic globalization by supporting study, teaching, and research abroad for students and faculty members in China and Taiwan.
  • Super Sunday is a unique initiative formed through a partnership with local leaders of church, civic and business organizations to promote a college-going culture among African American students. What began with 24 churches has now expanded to include 72 churches and has led to the development
    of companion college fair events called Super Saturday.
