Students working in a laboratory


Greetings CSM Alumni and Friends,

I am very excited to serve as the new Dean of the College! It is a great honor to be a part of the Fresno State family and work with the talented and dedicated faculty, staff, and students of the College of Science and Mathematics. The seven departments in our college serve students seeking careers in science, technology, and the health professions with an emphasis on discovery and innovation. Our rigorous and engaging curriculum and programs are designed to best prepare students for a number of exciting and diverse careers. We are very proud of the accomplishments of our alumni who have gone on to important industry positions as well as prestigious graduate programs and highly-ranked medical, dental, and pharmacy schools. It is our goal to continue graduating the next generation of scientists, mathematicians, teachers, and highly-skilled technicians and doctors for the Central Valley and beyond. In order to continue meeting our student success goals, we need your support on this special Day of Giving. 

The two critical areas of need that we have chosen are described below:

Support for Student Research

A hands-on "Learning by Doing" approach

Students in our college work collaboratively with our faculty on diverse research projects addressing challenges in food, energy, water, health, and the environment – challenges that are particularly relevant to the Central Valley. Participation in hands-on “learning by doing” research projects has been shown to enhance student technical, critical thinking, and communication skills that are so important for the 21st century workforce. Funds from these donations will provide materials and supplies for student-centered research as well as travel funds for students to present their work at regional and national meetings.

Support for Outreach

Inspiring the next generation of scientists and explorers

The Downing Planetarium at Fresno State shares the wonders of the universe with our community, offering programs on a daily basis throughout the year. The planetarium specializes in field trips for children from schools throughout the Central Valley, offering four public programs on a monthly basis and hosting several special events throughout the year. In its nearly 20-year history, thousands of children have visited the campus for the very first time to see the planetarium. Many of these students have gone on to attend Fresno State as first generation college students. Funds from these donations will provide additional planetarium programs as well as improvements to the projector system to provide a high quality experience for visitors, inspiring the next generation of scientists and explorers.

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Dr. Christopher Meyer, Dean
College of Science and Mathematics
