Message from the Dean: Women Making a Difference

eNews Edition: Fall 2018

One of the most rewarding aspects of library work is to provide diverse educational and cultural programming and resources that recognize individual accomplishments and document transformative social movements. In this issue of the Oviatt Library eNews, the editorial staff wanted to highlight women’s achievements. The CSU boasts a strong contingent of women leaders (52.2 percent of CSU campus presidents are women – nearly double the national average for U.S. colleges and universities). At CSUN, the past 26 years have been led by a woman president.

Your Vote Counts: a Message from the Oviatt eNews Editorial Team

eNews Edition: Fall 2018

Our lead story this issue, “People Are Talking about What She Said” commemorates the opening event of the Special Collections & Archives exhibition on women's civic and community engagement.  Attending the event, we were very moved by the struggle our foremothers faced in gaining the right to vote, a struggle that people all over the world, including in some parts of this country, still must contend with in order to get to the ballot box.  Your vote is precious, and so we’d like to take this opportunity to call attention to what we’re doing at the Library to engage voters as the midterm elections approach.

Message from the Dean: Creativity - The Secret Sauce of Student Success

eNews Edition: Spring 2018

Creativity is a crucial part of our lives and our work.  It benefits all of us individually and as a society.  Very few would argue that creativity has no place on the university campus or almost anywhere else in the world. Indeed, scholarly literature has proven that being exposed to creative outlets and innovation opportunities generates student success. But demonstrating creativity in the real world is sometimes hard work.
