Open Enrollment Now Available for CSUSM Summer Term

Open enrollment is now available for Summer Term classes at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) which incorporates over 100 courses in a wide range of fields and disciplines. Students from other colleges and universities, qualified high school seniors, and community members can register for classes in everything from chemistry to women’s studies. Credits from CSUSM Summer Term courses are fully transferrable to other accredited colleges and universities in the United States. For students already enrolled at CSUSM, and for high school or community college students who may be interested in CSUSM, up to 24 units can be counted toward a CSUSM degree.

“Many college students find it hard to graduate in four years, especially if they have difficulty enrolling in a required course,” says Mike Schroder, Dean of Extended Learning and Associate Vice President of Global Programs and Services at CSUSM. “CSUSM Summer Term is the perfect opportunity for students from any college or university to pick up the credits that gets them closer to completing their degree.”

Whether students are looking for prerequisites for higher-level classes, core curriculum offerings, or degree-specific classes, they can likely find what they need among the summer offerings at CSUSM. College-bound high school seniors can also get a jump on their freshman year by getting introductory courses and general education requirements under their belts.

CSUSM Summer Term 2017 runs from June 5 to August 12. The first block runs from June 5 to July 8 and the second block runs from July 10 to August 12. To learn more, call Extended Learning at 760-750-4004, or visit www.csusm.edu/el/summer17.

Governor Appoints CSUSM Adjunct Lecturer from Water Management Program to Bay Area Council

Governor Appoints CSUSM Adjunct Lecturer
from Water Management Program to Bay Area Council

Jerry Brown has appointed Ken Weinberg, who teaches in the Certificate in Water Resources
Management and Leadership Program at CSUSM, to the Delta Stewardship Council.

While this year’s El Nino rains may have temporarily assuaged some drought concerns, water resource management remains a vital part of California’s future. With a disproportionate number of water industry professionals anticipating retirement, a new generation needs to emerge to take a leadership role in this important industry.

Ken Weinberg, who has an extensive background in water management in both the private and public sectors, played an active role in developing the Certificate in Water Management and Leadership program at California State University San Marcos. This professional certificate program is designed to address the growing demand for qualified experts. Now Weinberg’s expertise has been recognized by California Governor Jerry Brown, who recently appointed Weinberg to the Delta Stewardship Council. This group will address water supply and environmental issues in the area around the Bay Delta.

At CSU San Marcos, Weinberg leads the survey course that introduces students to the Water Management and Leadership certificate program. The certificate program seeks to educate and broaden the skills of people currently working in the area of water resources; however, anyone with an interest in learning more about the water issues affecting our state and the world can register for the entry course.

“Leaders in the water industry approached CSUSM and asked us to help develop a program to educate the next generation of water industry experts,” explains Alan Styles, Program Director for the Water Management and Leadership Program at CSUSM. “The complex nature of water, especially in arid Southern California, requires competent and informed leaders who can manage water resources fairly and efficiently. Created by and for water industry professionals like Ken Weinberg, this program offers students the opportunity to gain knowledge and qualifications that meet the needs of the water management industry.”
The Certificate in Water Management and Leadership is designed for individuals who are currently employed in the areas of water supply, treatment, or distribution; those who meet certain basic prerequisites and have an interest in integrated water resource management may also apply. For those who do not live or work in San Diego County, some accommodation is available for remote learning. Recognized industry authorities lead the classes, which are primarily held on weekday evenings to accommodate working professionals. Guest speakers and expert panels as well as weekend field trips to tour facilities are also incorporated into the curriculum. The certificate is awarded upon completion of the five classes, each of which range from 8-15 weeks in duration.

Enrollment is now open for the introduction class beginning March 18 in the Certificate in Water Management and Leadership Program, including the introductory course taught by Ken Weinberg. To learn more about this program or to enroll, call 760-750-4004, or visit www.csusm.edu/el/water.
