CSUB’s “Camp to Campus” documentary premiered Feb. 5th; available for free screenings

Camp to CampusThe “Camp to Campus” documentary premiered at CSUB on February 5, 2013, in the Dore Theatre. The 90-minute film focuses on first-generation college graduates who come from a migrant labor background.

The “Camp to Campus ” project is funded by a $10,000 grant from Cal Humanities’ Community Stories Fund, along with $15,000 in matching funds from CSUB. In the spring of 2012, a diverse group of more than 50 people responded to an initial survey. They shared their experiences of growing up as the children of migrant laborers-some living in labor camps, and some working in the fields themselves- making the journey to college, and succeeding there.

During the  CSUB Hawk Honors Program  five-year program review, the Public Service Institute (PSI) at California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) agreed to conduct the indirect assessment components of this review. The indirect assessment consists of two segments: a survey of current participants in the Hawk Honors Program and a focus group of 10 to 15 Hawk Honors students designed to explore some of the issues raised in the survey in more depth. The survey report examines the results of the survey, makes recommendations about the Honors program, and suggests questions for the more detailed analysis in the focus group. The focus group report examines the results of the focus group and makes recommendations about the Honors program. Reports (PSI 09-006, 09-007)
