Message from Dr. Gilbert
“And now let us welcome the new year, full of things that never were.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
This is my final report as the Director of the Marilyn Magaram Center. These have been some of the most rewarding years of my professional career. I have much gratitude for all the support and successes we have experienced here at the Center.
In my five-year tenure we have celebrated many successes reflecting the true spirit of the Center in educating and bringing opportunities to our students and faculty. In this regard, we have graduated eighty-four Masters of Science students, engaged close to three hundred students in service learning experiences, through our internships and grants, and employed thirty-three different members of the CSUN faculty to perform research.
Over the five years we celebrated the receipt of twenty-one grants from both private and government agencies totaling 2.6 million dollars. In these endeavors we have developed a list of community partners that has reached well over one hundred.
None of our successes would have been achievable without the support of Dean Sylvia Alva and the Institute for Community Health and Wellbeing under the leadership of Dr. Dianne Philibosian. Thank-you for your mentorship and your personal commitment to my success as a faculty member and Director. The Magaram Center could not be the Center it is without a dedicated and supportive Advisory Board. Thank-you to all who have served on the Board for your guidance, support, and vision.
Lastly, I would like to thank-you the Magaram Center staff. Your commitment, loyalty, and work ethic has been instrumental in positioning our Center as the nutrition and food science experts globally.
