Welcome to the Office of Community Engagement!


50th anniversary logo.

Thank you Lisa Gordon for your Act of Kindness!

Lisa Gordon

Featuring in our 50 Acts of Kindness Campaign, is our fellow ‘Yotie, Lisa Gordon, who’s an Administrative Support Coordinator at the College of Business and Public Administration, Marketing Department. She loves to give back to her community as much as she can. She not only volunteers in the steering committee that oversees the Eat and Be Well event, but she also volunteers her time in helping to feed the homeless.

Eat and Be Well is a one-day event celebrating the Thanksgiving season by supporting those in need in San Bernardino County. Through collaboration between public agencies, businesses, volunteer groups, and the people of our community, Eat and Be Well provides those in need with a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Attendees are also connected with social services that can help change their lives.

Thank you Lisa, as a volunteer you leave your paw print on our community. We applaud you for your selfless Act of Kindness and hope that each of our ‘Yotes will follow in your foot steps in helping make a difference to our community and beyond! #CSUSB50Acts #pollinatingkindness #engageCSUSB

Thank you Jennifer Navarro for your Act of Kindness!
