Inspiring Faculty Recognition
A Cal Lutheran graduate and spouse have made a $350,000 gift to support a new “Faculty Fellows” program conceived by President Varlotta to recognize outstanding faculty who are making a difference in the lives of their students and the university. The program will launch in the 2023-24 academic year. To inspire others to contribute to this initiative, the donors have earmarked their $350,000 as seed money to be used in a dollar-for-dollar match to support this important cause.
