Stuart Farber, '58, M.A., Secondary Teaching Credential, '58

Dr. Stuart Farber

What is your fondest memory of LBSC?

As a student, it was M.A. graduation. As a Dean of Students, I enjoyed working with ASI, Student Union and various faculty/student departments, but most of all, helping the creative, energetic student leaders.

What activities/ organizations were you involved in while attending LBSC?

Phi Epsilon Kappa, Phi Delta Kappa

Which professor or staff made an impact on your academic or professional career?

Dr. Jack Montgomery, chair of HPE and R and Professor Kinsman, Education.

Did you attend any student events?

No time, carrying 21 units per semester, student teaching, coaching and writing a Master's Thesis.

What are you doing today?

I am a retired Dean of Students Emeritus, CSULB. Currently serving on various Boards and Committees including Board of Governors, LBCC, inducted into the Hall of Fame, LBCC and Distinguished Alumnus of UCLA.

How or have you been involved as an alumni?

Involved with the President's Associates, 49er Athletic Association, Golden Graduates Giving Campaign Chairman, 2011. I provide 5 scholarships for CSULB students; 2 in Education, 1 for ASI (endowed) 1 for ABSOC, 1 for Athletics, the President's Associates. Additionally, I provide 2 for LBCC and 1 at UCLA.

Being a 'Give-Back' alum is critical to the continued excellence at CSULB. Alums should envision themselves as part of the total University growth and excellence development. I would mention we find it most satisfying to help students financially with scholarships.

How large is your 49er family? (Any family member/ relative who currently attends or who has attended in the past.)

Wife, Trish, received B.A. and M. A. and credetials from CSULB. She was a cheerleader, Tri Delta and received the "Gold Nugget Award." She went on to an excellent award-winning teaching career.
