2010-11 Philanthropic Annual Report

System Highlights

  • Faculty members from 16 CSU campuses participated in a three-day Google Institute to be introduced to the most current Google applications and educational technologies. As a result of their participation, Google Inc. awarded nine grants to enable CSU faculty to pilot test innovative strategies for advancing engaging technology applications in high school science and mathematics education.
  • The S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation awarded over $1 million in grants to the CSU Chancellorís Office and its campuses. One grant supported the CSU Summit on Transformative Change in the Preparation of Teachers, a landmark event that examined new, clinical designs for teacher preparation based on medical models. Another grant supported clinical reforms, including approaches for better preparing K-8 teachers in science and math and for retaining beginning secondary science and math teachers affected by school district layoffs. Campuses engaged in the second grant were CSU East Bay, CSU Long Beach, CSU Los Angeles and San Francisco State.
  • The David and Lucile Packard Foundation awarded over $1 million to support research in early childhood education that provided dissertation fellowships for CSU doctoral candidates in educational leadership and resulted in The After-School Program Handbook for School Site Leaders. Additionally, the Packard-CSU California Teacher Pathway program enables high school graduates from low-income communities to complete a community college degree, a baccalaureate degree and a teaching credential, while working in an after-school program. Participating campuses include CSU Chico, CSU Dominguez Hills, CSU East Bay, CSU Fullerton, CSU Long Beach, CSU Los Angeles, CSU Northridge, CSU San Bernardino, San Diego State, and San Francisco State.
