We, the Construction Management Faculty and Staff, congratulate our 2012 Graduates who join some 2,500 Chico State Bachelor of Science Construction Management alumni currently managing the construction of schools, hospitals, hotels, bridges, highways, water systems, and industrial plants, including most of California's major projects, as well as projects across the rest of the United States and throughout the world.
This year’s CM graduating class continued the CM student tradition of community service by contributing thousands of hours helping others construct what they were unable to accomplish by themselves. Our students organized, managed, and participated in a spring break project in which 90 students rebuilt four houses for residents in tornado-devastated Joplin, Missouri. In addition the students organized and managed building a 2,000-square-foot visitor’s center barn for our local Patrick Ranch Museum as part of the University’s 125th year celebration, as well as constructed wheelchair access for a disabled Chicoan.
You are now a significant part of the Chico State Construction Management community, and we will proudly follow your efforts as you construct successful careers.
Rovane Younger, Professor and Chair
