I was this pregnant. I appreciate this<br />

‘You’re not going to have that baby<br />

I was always grateful for having this<br />

music at the collegiate level, signifies<br />

that a music program meets a set<br />

campus, and her family, have made a<br />

three-year pledge to maintain an area<br />

outside the new Library South wing,<br />

to be named the Mancillas Courtyard.<br />

“We chose the courtyard as the<br />

place to direct our donation because<br />

it felt like it would be a peaceful<br />

and beautiful environment where<br />

students could go take a break while<br />

studying. Plus, when we bring our<br />

kids to visit, they could run around<br />

a bit and not disturb the necessary<br />

quietness inside!”<br />

Both Adriean and her husband,<br />

Ruben, are proud alumni of CSU<br />

<strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong>. She received her<br />

credential in school counseling, and<br />

he earned his bachelor’s degree<br />

in English. Mancillas hopes that<br />

her family’s gift to the university<br />

that provided them with education<br />

and professional training will help<br />

to foster “a sense of caring and<br />

commitment to our campus.” n<br />

CBApp Luncheon Celebrates scholarships, Community partners<br />

The College of Business Administration<br />

and Public Policy (CBAPP)<br />

hosted its Fourth Annual Awards<br />

Luncheon on Nov. 4, bringing<br />

together nearly 400 students, faculty,<br />

and members of the local business<br />

community. The college’s main fundraiser,<br />

the event raised approximately<br />

$54,000, the largest amount since<br />

the luncheon’s inception in 2007. In<br />

addition, three Paragon Sponsors<br />

joined the roll call of donors. Club<br />

Deportivo Chivas USA, Providence<br />

Little Company of Mary Community<br />

Health Foundation, and Toyota<br />

Motor Sales, USA, Inc. each gave a<br />

gift of $10,000 to support CBAPP<br />

student scholarships and faculty professional<br />

development activities.<br />

“Even in these difficult economic<br />

times, each one of you has<br />

helped us exceed attendance from<br />

last year with a packed ballroom<br />

because you believe in helping our<br />

[students] to go out to the South Bay<br />

and beyond,” university president<br />

Mildred García said. “Your generous<br />

support helps us provide the margin<br />

of excellence that enhances student<br />

success and gives our faculty the<br />

tools to develop the future leaders of<br />

this state and of this nation.”<br />

John Melendez, a senior majoring<br />

in business administration,<br />

represented the 2010-2011 scholarship<br />

recipients and gave a heartfelt<br />

testimony to the struggles of returning<br />

to college after a 28-year career<br />

that ended with a layoff due to the<br />

flagging economy.<br />

“With a family and the state of<br />

the economy, you have to make a<br />

decision, a difficult decision whether<br />

to pay for a degree or take care of<br />

your family,” he said. “The benefit of<br />

a scholarship such as this one makes<br />

the decision easy.”<br />

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. has donated $100,000<br />

to <strong>California</strong> <strong>State</strong> <strong>University</strong>, <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> to create<br />

an endowment fund that will support the university’s<br />

Science Opportunity Program, which provides collegelevel<br />

science courses to students of the <strong>California</strong> Academy of Math and Science high<br />

school located on the campus. Honda’s contribution ensures the program can continue<br />

to provide textbooks and course materials to the CAMS students free of charge. In<br />

honor of that support, the program will now be called the American Honda Science<br />

Opportunity Program. n<br />

Walk into room A110 of<br />

the Social and Behavioral Sciences<br />

building and it no longer feels like<br />

you’re in a classroom, or on a college<br />

campus for that matter. Rather, it<br />

feels like you’ve entered a floor of a<br />

hospital. And in a way, you have.<br />

On November 8, the School of<br />

Nursing (SON) at <strong>California</strong> <strong>State</strong><br />

<strong>University</strong>, <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> cut the<br />

ribbon on a new nursing clinical skills<br />

lab. Made to resemble a hospital<br />

recovery room—multiple beds and<br />

exam tables are separated by privacy<br />

curtains—the lab is a welcome addition<br />

to the program, which has not<br />

had a dedicated on-campus facility<br />

where students can hone their nursing<br />

skills in its 30-year history.<br />

“CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> understands<br />

the importance of a highly<br />

skilled nursing force, and for 30 years<br />

has been a leader in educating this<br />

state’s nurses,” said university president<br />

Mildred García. “The addition<br />

of this lab on our campus reaffirms<br />

our commitment to ensuring our diverse<br />

student body is trained in stateof-the-art<br />

facilities and standards of<br />

practice, and that we are producing<br />

well-prepared nursing professionals<br />

and healthcare leaders for our communities.”<br />

From virtual to Bricks and mortar<br />

While most college degree programs<br />

are taught at one physical campus,<br />

the CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> School<br />

of Nursing has been an off-campus,<br />

now students have the<br />

opportunity to learn<br />

the art and skill of nursing<br />

in a safe environment.<br />

mostly virtual program for most of<br />

its existence, with classes offered<br />

throughout the state. Established in<br />

1981 as the CSU <strong>State</strong>wide Nursing<br />

Program offering practicing registered<br />

nurses (RN) in <strong>California</strong> the<br />

opportunity to earn a bachelor’s or<br />

master’s degree at their pace and<br />

without leaving their home or place<br />

of employment, the CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong> School of Nursing rarely<br />

conducted classes on the Carson<br />

campus until 2006 when it began its<br />

first pre-licensure program.<br />

The Master’s Entry Level Profes-<br />

sional Nurse (MEPN) program was<br />

created in response to the state’s<br />

nursing shortage and designed for<br />

individuals who have bachelor’s degrees<br />

in other fields but are interested<br />

in entering the nursing profession.<br />

For the first time, the school had a<br />

more traditional degree program—<br />

students take a full course load over<br />

20 months and take the majority of<br />

their coursework at CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong>. Scheduling classroom space was<br />

not a problem, but finding an appropriate<br />

facility where students could<br />

practice their nursing skills proved a<br />

up in the SON administrative office<br />

faculty use the lab there. Both arrangements<br />

highlighted the need for<br />

classroom spaces on the lower level<br />

of the Social and Behavioral Sciences<br />

building into the 4,000-square-foot<br />

nursing skills lab. Features of the<br />

space include a reception area, a<br />

32-seat “smart” classroom with<br />

laptop computers at every seat and<br />

computerized whiteboards, a small<br />

simulation lab with high-tech human<br />

patient simulators known as METI<br />

men that were purchased through<br />

then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s<br />

<strong>California</strong> Nurse Education Initiative,<br />

as well as the hospital skills lab itself.<br />

The warm yellow walls and<br />

pastel polka dotted privacy curtains<br />

separating the beds in the skills<br />

lab belie the typical white-washed,<br />

sterile hospital room. But filled with<br />

student nurses practicing everything<br />

from changing beds to giving shots,<br />

running IVs and checking blood<br />

pressure, the space begins to take on<br />

the sights and sounds of a working<br />

medical center.<br />

The simulation lab is adjacent<br />

and includes two beds where the two<br />

METI men lay. These computerized<br />

mannequins can be programmed for<br />

any medical scenario and will present<br />

lifelike symptoms and responses<br />

accordingly to nursing students’ care.<br />

They are an added clinical skills educational<br />

tool for the students and one<br />

School of Nursing acting director<br />

Rose Welch believes will prove very<br />

useful to the nursing students.<br />

“It’s very dynamic and interactive,<br />

and a lot of literature supports<br />

that it really makes a difference in<br />

promoting safety and quality of<br />

patient care,” Welch said. “The whole<br />

point of it is to give students the opportunity<br />

to learn the art and skill of<br />

nursing in a safe environment before<br />

going into the real world, which also<br />

is the reason this entire skills lab for<br />

the School of Nursing is so critical.”<br />

Enhancing the student experience<br />

even further is the addition of<br />

cameras mounted above each bed in<br />

the labs, as well as television moni-<br />

tors throughout. As the students are<br />

practicing their skills, their instructors<br />

can choose to record them and<br />

view the footage, either at their stations<br />

or back in the computer lab, in<br />

The 4,000-square-foot,<br />

hospital-like nursing skills<br />

lab was created out of four<br />

classroom spaces on the<br />

lower level of the social and<br />

Behavioral sciences building.<br />

order to analyze the students’ actions<br />

more thoroughly.<br />

“Students look at how they perform<br />

and what they did right, what<br />

they did wrong, what they could have<br />

done differently,” Welch said. “Sometimes<br />

the most valuable part of the<br />

experience is the debriefing of it.”<br />

sOs Campaign<br />

Walking into the lab’s main entrance,<br />

individuals enter a reception area<br />

and are immediately drawn to a dark<br />

purple wall. Though currently blank,<br />

it will soon display the names of all<br />

the people who donated money or<br />

equipment to make the skills lab possible.<br />

Money from the CSU Chancellor’s<br />

Office fund only covered<br />

construction. The school had some<br />

equipment in their rudimentary lab<br />

space, but not enough to stock this<br />

much larger space.<br />

Lacking funds to purchase the<br />

necessary equipment and supplies,<br />

from gauze to hospital beds, the school<br />

launched a Stock Our Skills Lab<br />

(SOS) campaign. More than $130,000<br />

has been raised to-date, including<br />

major donations from Catalina businessman<br />

Ken Putnam, who chairs<br />

the CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> Foundation<br />

Board of Directors; Associated<br />

Students Inc.; and Providence Little<br />

Company of Mary Healthcare Foundation,<br />

which provided the beds. The<br />

SOS campaign will continue, according<br />

to Welch, who said the ongoing<br />

costs to keep the lab stocked are<br />

not covered in the school’s overall<br />

budget. In addition, the lab will be<br />

available for naming rights.<br />

“We really do need a lot more<br />

donations and to go in for grants,<br />

because ongoing maintenance and<br />

ongoing stocking is absolutely es-<br />

sential,” Welch said. “We’ve got this<br />

beautiful facility but it doesn’t help if<br />

it’s not utilized to its fullest.”<br />

At the ribbon cutting for the lab,<br />

MEPN student Jose Nava, a recipient<br />

of the Kaiser Permanente Dolores<br />

Jones Nursing Scholarship, summed<br />

up what the lab means to him and his<br />

classmates.<br />

“You are giving hope not only<br />

to us but to future generations of<br />

nurses that are going to come after<br />

us,” he said to the assembled supporters<br />

of the lab. “I hope that this<br />

nursing skills lab... will give us more<br />

time to practice and hone our skills.<br />

As good nurses, it’s not only that we<br />

have it here in our minds and in our<br />

hearts. We also have to have it in our<br />

hands.” n<br />

Gifts of art and new Gallery space<br />

enhance the university’s stature<br />

as a Cultural Center for the region<br />

In this issue of <strong>Dominguez</strong> Today,<br />

the university presents its Annual<br />

<strong>Donor</strong> <strong>Honor</strong> <strong>Roll</strong> and acknowledges<br />

the generosity of all its donors.<br />

Thanks to contributions from alumni<br />

and friends, CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong><br />

continues to invest in student scholarships,<br />

faculty development and<br />

innovative programs, and is able to<br />

improve opportunities for our students<br />

and have a significant impact<br />

for generations to come.<br />

Charitable giving doesn’t always<br />

mean writing a check. Many donors<br />

choose to make a gift of art—either<br />

during their lifetime or by bequest—<br />

to enhance the university’s collections,<br />

to incorporate art into the CSU<br />

<strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> environment, and<br />

to support its mission as a teaching<br />

institution, so future generations<br />

might experience the power and enjoyment<br />

of great works of art while<br />

attending the university.<br />

The CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> art<br />

collection has benefited and grown as<br />

a result of recent donations of gifts<br />

of art from individuals and corporate<br />

collectors, including paintings from<br />

the estate of former professor Winston<br />

Hewitt. These gifts are serving<br />

to enhance the aesthetics of the university<br />

for enjoyment by the campus<br />

and neighboring communities.<br />

The <strong>University</strong> Art Gallery in<br />

LaCorte Hall has offered outstanding<br />

exhibitions for several decades and is<br />

one of the major exhibition spaces<br />

in the South Bay. The Loker Student<br />

Union features large wall displays of<br />

historic photos and print memorabilia<br />

on both levels of the building, and<br />

offers additional areas for exhibits. In<br />

addition, the university has a myriad<br />

of new and beautiful spaces in which<br />

to display art works.<br />

The Library South wing that<br />

opened last April features large common<br />

areas on each floor of the fivestory<br />

building, as well as a dedicated<br />

six art and design department<br />

students were awarded the<br />

Winston Hewitt Art scholarship<br />

at the opening reception of an<br />

exhibition of Hewitt’s work in<br />

the university Art Gallery.<br />

multicultural art gallery. The <strong>University</strong><br />

Library Archives and Special<br />

Collections area has a “History Walkway,”<br />

featuring historic photos of<br />

the campus, and an exhibition area<br />

in its Reading Room. In October, the<br />

PICTURE Art Foundation partnered<br />

with CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong><br />

to open a museum space in the new<br />

wing for the benefit of the campus<br />

and donated a large-scale sculpture<br />

for an outside area. The growing art<br />

collection and exhibition spaces at<br />

CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> will continue<br />

to enhance the quality of campus life<br />

and the university’s value as an educational<br />

and cultural resource for the<br />

broader South Bay community.<br />

ensure His Legacy<br />

Winston Russell Hewitt was the<br />

founding chair of the modern languages<br />

department at CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong>, where he taught French<br />

literature from 1966 to 1982, but art<br />

was his true passion. After retiring<br />

from teaching, he devoted his life to<br />

painting. Executors of the Winston<br />

Russell Hewitt Foundation chose<br />

to honor his passion for art and his<br />

decades-long commitment to CSU<br />

<strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong>, after his death in<br />

2006, with the creation of the Winston<br />

Hewitt Art Scholarship.<br />

This past semester, six outstanding<br />

students majoring in art, became<br />

the first recipients of the $200,000<br />

scholarship. On Nov. 10, they were<br />

recognized at an opening reception<br />

for “Winston Hewitt: A Retrospective<br />

Exhibition of his Paintings and<br />

Prints,” that was on display in the<br />

<strong>University</strong> Art Gallery through December<br />

8. The recipients, who each<br />

received $1,000, were Jose Romero,<br />

Brian Banuelos, Alyssa Congdon,<br />

Jessica Portillo, Brenda Estrada, and<br />

Diana Homayonfar-Shahedi.<br />

At the reception, President Mildred<br />

the same pursuit of “authentic<br />

interests” that Hewitt demonstrated<br />

through pursuing his love of painting.<br />

“[Hewitt] was a renaissance man<br />

in that he was a language faculty<br />

member who later became an artist<br />

and left this for us to appreciate and<br />

show that you really can have multiple<br />

careers and ways of viewing the<br />

world,” she said.<br />

Brenda Estrada spoke on behalf<br />

of her fellow students and thanked<br />

the trustees for their support:<br />

dedication to our passion as artists,<br />

we hope that our artwork in the<br />

future will be deemed praiseworthy<br />

and reflect positively on the honor<br />

bestowed on us by the Winston<br />

Hewitt Scholarship.”<br />

Charles Winborne, a trustee of<br />

the Hewitt Estate, recalled his first<br />

visit to Hewitt’s studio and how he<br />

was impressed by the range of the<br />

painter’s work and commitment to<br />

his craft.<br />

at the art but by the words he was us-<br />

that was extraordinary… and a good<br />

model for any of us who are doing<br />

anything we love and have passion<br />

for,” said Winborne.<br />

The Winston Hewitt Estate<br />

donated the brilliantly colored landscapes<br />

in the exhibit to the <strong>University</strong><br />

“Where Cultures meet”<br />

sculpture Installed<br />

A beautiful 10,000-pound bronze<br />

sculpture, titled “Where Cultures<br />

Meet,” was installed on campus and<br />

unveiled in October. The PICTURE<br />

Art Foundation, based in Redondo<br />

Beach, commissioned and donated<br />

the sculpture, valued at over<br />

$660,000, to the university for the<br />

benefit of the community.<br />

The centerpiece sculpture represents<br />

different ethnicities found<br />

around the world and features 10<br />

life-size figures emerging from and<br />

surrounding a globe of the world.<br />

Commissioned sculptor Benjamin<br />

Victor was selected by the foundation<br />

out of 53 applicants to create<br />

a sculpture that would best represent<br />

the university’s diversity. A <strong>California</strong><br />

native, Victor is artist-in-residence<br />

at Northern <strong>State</strong> <strong>University</strong> in<br />

South Dakota, and best known for<br />

his sculpture of Sarah Winnemucca<br />

in the National Statuary Hall in the<br />

United <strong>State</strong>s Capitol.<br />

After researching the varying demographics<br />

and cultures at <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong>, Victor held a casting call<br />

for models and used students and<br />

faculty members of different ethnicities<br />

as a basis for the 10 human<br />

figures. The 15-foot-tall sculpture<br />

took eight months to complete.<br />

Your Gift makes educational<br />

Dreams a Reality<br />

Dear Friends,<br />

I am pleased to present the first-ever <strong>California</strong> <strong>State</strong><br />

<strong>University</strong>, <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> Annual <strong>Donor</strong> <strong>Honor</strong><br />

<strong>Roll</strong>. In this <strong>Honor</strong> <strong>Roll</strong>, we recognize the support<br />

given between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010.<br />

I am excited to report that 2009–10 saw another<br />

strong year in giving. Over $3.8 million in philanthropic<br />

gifts were given to CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong>;<br />

this represents almost a doubling of support since<br />

FY 2006-07. Our alumni have also stepped up their<br />

support—the number of alumni donors quadrupled<br />

between FY 2006–07 and the close of FY 2009–10.<br />

The state’s economic crisis has had a dramatic<br />

impact on our campus. Your willingness to give during<br />

difficult economic times makes it possible for students<br />

to pursue their dreams of attaining a college education<br />

and makes it easier for our faculty and staff to maintain<br />

a high level of support for our students.<br />

Without the generosity and vision of our philanthropic<br />

friends, CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> would not be<br />

the outstanding campus it is today. CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong> continues to be a great investment. Through<br />

your contributions, we are better able to provide<br />

excellent academic programs, offer comprehensive<br />

student services, and evolve into a vibrant cultural<br />

center for the community<br />

On behalf of our students, faculty and staff, we<br />

thank you for the loyalty, goodwill, and support you<br />

provide that makes CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> stronger<br />

and better able to fulfill its educational mission. We are<br />

able to provide transformational opportunities to our<br />

students because of donors like you.<br />

Sincerely,<br />

Greg Saks<br />

Vice President for <strong>University</strong> Advancement<br />

Leaving a Faculty Legacy<br />

since 2007, emeriti and retired faculty members of the emeritus faculty<br />

association have been donating to the faculty legacy fund<br />

n amy Bentley-smith<br />

u<br />

pdating a catalog of literary<br />

work for a book proposal. Purchasing<br />

specialized equipment to conduct<br />

experiments that could lead to<br />

further research on muscle diseases.<br />

A summer trip to Sequoia National<br />

Park to study stalagmites in assessing<br />

long-term drought. Training graduate<br />

students to analyze and code interviews<br />

for a study of sexual health<br />

communication. These are just a few<br />

of the projects that current professors<br />

at <strong>California</strong> <strong>State</strong> <strong>University</strong>,<br />

<strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> have been able to<br />

pursue thanks, in part, to the monetary<br />

contributions of faculty who<br />

came before them.<br />

Since 2007, emeriti and retired<br />

faculty members of the Emeritus<br />

Faculty Association at CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong> have been donating to<br />

the Faculty Legacy Fund, which the<br />

association established to offer finan-<br />

2 4 C A L i F O r n i A S T A T E U n i V E r S i T y<br />

cial support for the scholarship and<br />

professional development of junior<br />

faculty. The way emeritus professor<br />

of sociology Bill Blischke sees it,<br />

the Faculty Legacy Fund’s benefits<br />

extend well beyond faculty.<br />

“The Emeritus Faculty Association<br />

gives two students scholarships<br />

each year, but what attracted me to<br />

the Faculty Legacy Fund was how<br />

many more students we could help,”<br />

said Blischke, who along with Sue<br />

Gemmell and Lenora Cook, both<br />

emeriti professors of teacher education,<br />

helped develop the<br />

Kenneth Rodriguez, assistant<br />

professor of chemistry, received a<br />

Faculty Legacy Award in 2010.<br />

fund. “Faculty touches the lives of<br />

tens of thousands of students, and<br />

if we are able through the Faculty<br />

Legacy Fund to assist junior faculty<br />

in enhancing their teaching and<br />

research, I feel they can have an even<br />

greater impact.”<br />

In the four award cycles since<br />

its inception, the fund has handed<br />

out awards to 10 faculty members to<br />

begin or return to research work.<br />

Ericka Verba, associate professor<br />

in the Department of History was<br />

one of the first recipients. She used<br />

the money to compile a literary<br />

catalog for preliminary work toward<br />

a book-length biography of Chilean<br />

folklorist and composer Violeta<br />

Parra. Verba has written widely<br />

about Parra, often using her story<br />

as anecdote in articles<br />

and presentations<br />

that examine<br />

the broader cultural and political<br />

context of Latin America during the<br />

1950s and 1960s. This book, she said,<br />

would be a culmination of her lifelong<br />

interest in the artist. To be given<br />

some financial support in the early<br />

stages of the book project—and to<br />

know it came from former faculty<br />

members—was just what she needed<br />

to move the project forward.<br />

“It’s been an ongoing project of<br />

mine, and the grant has given me the<br />

boost to put aside other things and<br />

refocus my attention,” said Verba.<br />

“It’s psychologically motivating to<br />

know there are people out there<br />

who appreciate your work and want<br />

to see you succeed. It says a lot<br />

about <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> that we have<br />

faculty who remain committed to the<br />

university. The value of the program<br />

is much more than the monetary<br />

award. You get to feel like you’re part<br />

of a legacy.”<br />

In many ways, Kenneth Rodriguez,<br />

assistant professor in the Department<br />

of Chemistry and Biochemistry, is the<br />

embodiment of the “pay it forward”<br />

legacy members of the Emeritus<br />

Faculty Association seek to leave<br />

through the fund and their continued<br />

involvement with the university.<br />

Rodriguez first came to CSU<br />

<strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> as a student.<br />

After earning his bachelor’s degree<br />

in chemistry in 2001, he went on<br />

to Ohio <strong>State</strong> <strong>University</strong>, where he<br />

got his Ph.D. in 2007. As one of<br />

the newest faculty members in the<br />

chemistry department—he is in his<br />

second year as a professor—Rodriguez<br />

is literally just starting his career.<br />

However, he entered academia in<br />

an age of shrinking state university<br />

budgets and subsequent waning<br />

financial support of faculty research.<br />

Rodriguez, a 2010 recipient, said he<br />

is thankful that the Faculty Legacy<br />

Fund is giving him the start he needs.<br />

The award money he received<br />

will go toward purchasing a specialized<br />

piece of equipment for the<br />

chemistry department, known as a<br />

ZnSe (zinc selenide) wired polarizer.<br />

ericka verba, associate<br />

professor of history,<br />

was a Faculty Legacy Fund<br />

awardee in 2007.<br />

Rodriguez plans to use the polarizer<br />

to conduct research on the structure<br />

of the protein actin, which is found<br />

in muscles fibers, by using surface<br />

enhanced infrared absorption.<br />

Rodriguez hopes the preliminary data<br />

he collects will lead to major grants<br />

from the National Institutes of<br />

Health or the National Science Foundation<br />

to conduct further research<br />

into the protein’s effect on muscle<br />

diseases.<br />

“This is where it all starts,”<br />

Rodriguez said of grants like the<br />

Faculty Legacy Fund. “I’m really<br />

grateful for the Emeritus Faculty<br />

Association. It means a lot that they<br />

believe in me and the work I want<br />

to do to start my research here as<br />

a young faculty member…. They<br />

are truly planting the seed for my<br />

research to grow.”<br />

In addition to accepting annual<br />

contributions, the Faculty Legacy<br />

Fund is endowed by the estate gifts<br />

of several Emeritus Faculty Association<br />

members. The association<br />

accepts donations from its members<br />

as well as the general public, foundations<br />

and corporations.<br />

archeologists from Peru and Ecuador,<br />

and the United <strong>State</strong>s, the workshops<br />

were a first step in facilitating scholarly<br />

exchanges between the region’s<br />

the region is believed to be significant<br />

for what it can reveal about the<br />

and the beginnings of village governance<br />

and social strata. n<br />

Byrne.<br />

Byrne, who was Keel’s criminal<br />

justice professor and also serves as<br />

faculty advisor to Veterans Alliance<br />

Keel has been a role model and mentor<br />

to his fellow veteran students.<br />

“As a distinguished military veteran,<br />

Robert supports other veterans<br />

working toward their educational<br />

goals,” says Byrne. “His prior military<br />

experience has provided him with<br />

unique insights into the world and its<br />

relationship to issues involving sociology<br />

as well as criminal justice. I’ve<br />

observed him working closely with<br />

other students who were challenged<br />

by the material. His assistance proved<br />

instrumental to their success in the<br />

course.”<br />

Sophomore Samantha Hernandez<br />

didn’t necessarily see that making<br />

good grades in high school and getting<br />

accepted to college made her<br />

a role model. If anything, she was<br />

inspired by others to set those goals.<br />

John Tracy: Alumnus Gives Boeing Technology its Wings<br />

Among the attendees of<br />

the historic 1910 Air Meet, which<br />

took place on <strong>Dominguez</strong> Rancho<br />

Adobe land not far from where <strong>California</strong><br />

<strong>State</strong> <strong>University</strong>, <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong> now sits, was William Boeing,<br />

who went on to create what would<br />

become the world’s largest aviation<br />

and aerospace company.<br />

A century later, the head of<br />

The Boeing Company’s technology<br />

efforts can claim he got his<br />

beginnings there too. As senior vice<br />

president of engineering, operations<br />

and technology and chief technology<br />

officer, John Tracy (Class of ’76,<br />

B.S., physics) is responsible for the<br />

strategic direction of more<br />

than 100,000 Boeing<br />

employees worldwide.<br />

Within the<br />

corporation, he<br />

is responsible<br />

for a multitude of<br />

organizations that<br />

include engineering,<br />

operations, supplier<br />

management, quality assurance<br />

and information<br />

technology.<br />

3 2<br />

Tracy, a Southern <strong>California</strong><br />

native, says his parents inspired him<br />

to become an engineer. When he was<br />

in elementary school, his father gave<br />

him a model of the X-15, a rocketpowered<br />

airplane that was used<br />

mainly for research in the 1960s.<br />

“This rocket-powered airplane<br />

didn’t land on three wheels, [but] on<br />

a wheel and two skids,” says Tracy,<br />

“and I thought, ‘Wow, what an amazing<br />

sight! How can I get involved in<br />

designing and building something<br />

like that?’”<br />

Tracy joined McDonnell Douglas,<br />

now part of Boeing, as a stress<br />

analyst in 1981. He’s held a wide variety<br />

of leadership roles at the company,<br />

including vice president of engineering<br />

and mission assurance for<br />

Boeing’s defense and space business<br />

unit and vice president of structural<br />

technologies, prototyping and quality<br />

for the company’s advanced research<br />

and development organization.<br />

He said his education from<br />

CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong><br />

contributed greatly to his<br />

successful career.<br />

“The [campus] was<br />

small enough to give me<br />

the chance to have direct<br />

interactions with my<br />

professors,” Tracy said,<br />

who went on to earn a Ph.D. in engineering<br />

from the <strong>University</strong> of <strong>California</strong>,<br />

Irvine and an M.S. in physics<br />

from CSU Los Angeles. “I especially<br />

remember James Imai [emeritus<br />

professor of physics]. I started out<br />

at <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> as a math major<br />

with a minor in physical education,<br />

but he convinced me I could be a<br />

physics student.”<br />

Tracy believes that with a little<br />

inspiration and encouragement like<br />

the kind he received, more students<br />

would pursue STEM (science, technology,<br />

engineering and math) fields.<br />

“I can’t say enough about the<br />

importance of inspiration when it<br />

comes to getting young people interested<br />

in science and technology,” he<br />

said. “The sight of a rocket airplane<br />

helped inspire me to pursue a career<br />

in this field. I hope the products that<br />

[we at Boeing] are working on today<br />

will encourage students to become<br />

the designers of tomorrow’s aweinspiring<br />

products.”<br />

A fellow of the American Society<br />

of Mechanical Engineers and the<br />

past chair of its 6,000-member aerospace<br />

division, Tracy has also been<br />

elected as a fellow of the American<br />

Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics<br />

and the Royal Aeronautical<br />

Society, and was inducted into the<br />

Hispanic Engineer National Achievement<br />

Awards Corporation (HE-<br />

NAAC) Hall of Fame in 2009. n<br />

Travis Kamiyama: Chef Oversees Restaurant on Cruise ship<br />

When Travis Kamiyama<br />

(Class of ’97, B.S. economics)<br />

opened Kamiyama Sushi in 2000 in<br />

Lomita, he served his unique interpretation<br />

of sushi in a tiny storefront<br />

that seated about five at the bar. Ever<br />

expanding his international restaurant<br />

empire—he has a sushi and<br />

tapas bar in Osaka and contracts with<br />

the Market Broiler in Orange—the<br />

Okinawan native is now executive<br />

sushi chef and consultant aboard the<br />

Oasis of the Seas. The Oasis is the<br />

largest cruise ship in the world with<br />

16 decks and accommodations for up<br />

to 5,400 guests.<br />

“I broke out of the South Bay<br />

into international waters,” says<br />

Kamiyama. “I hope in the future to<br />

become the authority in the cruise<br />

ship industry in terms of Asian food<br />

and sushi.”<br />

Kamiyama enjoys the challenge<br />

of serving sushi to an international<br />

audience—some of whom may never<br />

have had it before their cruise. Used<br />

to running restaurants on land, where<br />

the accessibility of exotic ingredients<br />

are almost never an issue, Kamiyama<br />

had to learn to strategize on what his<br />

ocean-bound restaurant Izumi could<br />

offer while keeping its quality high.<br />

More than 20 specialty restaurants<br />

and concessions on board gather<br />

their weekly food supply through<br />

an elaborate provision system that<br />

enables them to serve 25,000 meals a<br />

day during a week-long cruise to approximately<br />

8,000 people on board.<br />

As a student at CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong>, he says he appreciated the<br />

“great staff, great teachers, great curriculum.”<br />

He also relied on his own<br />

self-motivation.<br />

“When I attended <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong> in the early 1990s, it was a small<br />

campus compared to now,” he says.<br />

“But I applied myself enough and<br />

took full advantage of every opportunity<br />

I had, asking questions, reading<br />

a lot, and networking.”<br />

As an entrepreneur, Kamiyama<br />

holds firm to the same drive, and<br />

says that, “valuing people and valuing<br />

relationships is a huge part of it.”<br />

In December 2010, Kamiyama<br />

helped launch the Allure of the Seas,<br />

a sister ship to the Oasis with a second<br />

Izumi restaurant on board. Last<br />

fall, he participated with the Patina<br />

Restaurant Group in providing highend<br />

dining for the Alltech FEI World<br />

Equestrian Games in Lexington, Ky.<br />

Kamiyama has also done volunteer<br />

work with the Boarding House<br />

Mentors, a surfing, skateboarding<br />

and snowboarding program for underserved<br />

youth, and for Camp Musubi,<br />

a summer program that teaches<br />

Nikkei middle school students to<br />

preserve their Japanese heritage. The<br />

father of a young son and daughter,<br />

Kamiyama emphasizes the importance<br />

of “being able to balance all of<br />

it, not just the career aspect.”<br />

“And always have integrity. Never<br />

discount your services or passion,” he<br />

says. “If you commit to something,<br />

make sure it happens and that you<br />

deliver every time. If you do that,<br />

your chances of getting referrals or<br />

more business increases by tenfold.” n<br />

equipment in the labs while attending<br />

the university, recalls Pearson, a<br />

software engineer at Raytheon, and<br />

wanted to give physics students access<br />

to the best learning experience<br />

possible.<br />

“Inherently, I’m an engineer<br />

and like build things,” he says. “I<br />

designed some support modules to<br />

make the experiments go more easily<br />

and accurately. The equipment was<br />

in disrepair and kind of minimal. I<br />

figured with a little extra money, we<br />

could do something.” n<br />

A throng of nearly 300 To-<br />

ros gathered at the CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong> campus in January to recognize<br />

and honor 69 former student-athletes<br />

in a three-part Toros All-American<br />

Wall of <strong>Honor</strong> unveiling ceremony, a<br />

special event planned as part of the<br />

ongoing celebration of the university’s<br />

50th anniversary.<br />

Beginning in the spring of 1979,<br />

Toro student-athletes have received<br />

94 total awards and honors, with<br />

an unbroken record of at least one<br />

university member receiving an<br />

award every year since the 1981-82<br />

academic year. In fact, 10 programs<br />

have received at least two All-Americas,<br />

with men’s soccer leading the<br />

way with 28 total awards. The 2003<br />

some former and current<br />

Csu <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong><br />

All-American recipients and<br />

Rhodes scholar Finalists<br />

in front of a display their<br />

legacies have created.<br />

calendar year witnessed the largest<br />

number of awards handed out to<br />

CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong> <strong>Hills</strong> students, with<br />

eight total going to five athletes.<br />

The event, which welcomed<br />

back a who’s who of former studentathletes,<br />

coaches, administrators,<br />

and their families, including six-time<br />

All-American women’s track and field<br />

sensation and current fastest woman<br />

in the world, Carmelita Jeter, and<br />

men’s soccer’s six-time All-American<br />

and two-time National Player of the<br />

Year, Kevin Gallaugher, began in<br />

Loker Student Union for a pre-ceremony<br />

meet-and-greet before segueing<br />

into the Torodome gymnasium.<br />

In the Torodome, each All-<br />

America, Academic All-America<br />

and Rhodes Scholar Finalist was<br />

announced, with those in attendance<br />

being presented a plaque commemorating<br />

their accomplishments.<br />

Following the plaque presentation,<br />

the recipients and their<br />

families, along with special VIPs in<br />

attendance, made their way to the<br />

Torodome lobby where the display<br />

was unveiled by President Mildred<br />

García, Vice President of Enrollment<br />

Management and Student Affairs Sue<br />

Borrego and Director of Athletics<br />

Patrick Guillen.<br />

“What a great way to celebrate<br />

and honor the rich history and tradition<br />

that is Toros Athletics,” Guillen<br />

said. “It was fantastic to bring back<br />

our athletic and academic All-Americans,<br />

and our Rhodes Scholar Finalists,<br />

and recognize them for their<br />

tremendous past achievements.<br />

“Some had not been on campus<br />

in 25–30 years so it was a great way<br />

to reconnect, show off our beautiful<br />

campus and show them the positive<br />

direction in which CSUDH and its<br />

Athletics Department are moving.”<br />

Among the special guests in attendance<br />

were alumnus Rick Goacher,<br />

who made a special presentation<br />

to the university’s first-ever athletics<br />

director and current golf coach,<br />

Dr. John Johnson; former men’s<br />

basketball head coach, Dave Yanai;<br />

and ten current CSU <strong>Dominguez</strong><br />

<strong>Hills</strong> All-Americans whose faces<br />

and accomplishments will grace the<br />

All-American Wall of <strong>Honor</strong> once<br />

their careers are complete, including<br />

baseball’s Abel Medina and track and<br />

field’s Chanel Parker. —Mel Miranda
