Faculty and staff members are often seen working on community projects, speaking at professional programs and serving in other professional capacities. Here are two recent examples:
Sharon Chappell, associate professor of elementary and bilingual education, served as a facilitator for “Welcoming Schools,” a project of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation to help schools build gender-inclusive and LGBTQ-inclusive schools. The educator is working on a partnership with Fullerton School District to start a “Welcoming Schools” program with CSUF education graduate students serving as co-teachers through the University’s Titan PRIDE grant project. Her work is supported by a Silicon Valley Community Foundation grant.
Edythe Krampe, lecturer in sociology, and Karissa Lopez, a senior sociology and psychology major, presented a paper titled “I Love My Life: Psychosocial Correlates of Subjective Well-Being in Middle-Aged and Older Women” at the Nov. 18-22 Gerontological Society of America’s 68th annual Scientific Meeting in Orlando, Fla.
