2021 Spirit of CSN Award Recipients
CSN President Dr. Federico Zaragoza and the CSN Foundation Board of Trustees are pleased to announce the 2021-2022 Spirit of CSN award recipients.
Cody the Coyote’s Locker – Marissa Robledo
Cody the Coyote’s Locker looks to eliminate a financial barrier by providing basic classroom necessities. Having access to free or loaned school supplies will help students be successful in and out of the classroom. The award will provide support to stock the locker with items such as highlighters, backpacks, and paper.
CSN Community of Practice Projects Designed for Student – Sonya Pearson, PH.D., JD
The CSN Community of Practice Projects Designed for Student is requesting funding to support the curriculum and program design work to implement a large-scale system to better understand and address students basic needs and success.
First Year Experience (FYE) Connection Award and Scholarship – Dr. Karen Violanti and Courtney Schmitz, Student Affairs
The First Year Experience Connection Award and Scholarship is going into its second year working to offer new students an intentionally designed connection to community, academic and social engagement. This is an incentive program to encourage students to take advantage of the opportunities available in the first year, while simultaneously helping students connect.
Meaningful Writing Initiative – Rhode, Shapiro, Royer, Powell, Dixon, and Thornberry
The Meaningful Writing Experience (MWE) will operate as a sub-committee of the existing Composition Committee in the English Department. Partnering with FYE and first-year course instructors creates curriculum-based opportunities across disciplines for students to engage with the CSN community and professional leaders/organizations.
Thank you to the Spirit of CSN 2021 Selection Committee appointed by Dr. Zaragoza
