Legacies Project


Former faculty and staff are valued members of the College of Health and Human Sciences family. The Legacies Project was envisioned in 2011 by a group of engaged faculty emeriti seeking to preserve history and bonds among their peers. The first honoree videos and web pages premiered in 2012. These pages honor former faculty and staff by gathering, archiving, and sharing personal and professional histories. Explore these pages to watch videos and read about the honorees and find resources to help you stay connected to the College and CSU.
