California State University, Chico has hired 44 new tenure-track and eight full-time temporary faculty for the 2000-2001 school year. The new faculty, added to the 52 hired last year, brings the total for the two years to over a hundred. "We are clearly in a process of renewal," said President Manuel A. Esteban in remarks in his convocation speech.

The new tenure-track faculty come to CSU, Chico from a wide range of educational institutions, including Texas A&M, Louisiana State, University of Denver, Loyola, Claremont, Northwestern University, University of Hawaii, Yale, and Brown University.

Their fields of expertise include such areas as children's music composition (Deborah Reinhardt, music); watershed and experimental hydrology (Karin Hoover, geosciences); the nutritional status of the elderly (Michelle Neyman, biology); marine biology and the biogeochemical cycles and global change (Zueli Zou, physics); interactions between native and exotic fishes in California (Michael Marchetti, biology); and the impact of stress on family functioning (Matthew Bumpus, child development).

Fifteen of the new tenure-track faculty are in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences; 12 are in the College of Humanities and Fine Arts; 9 in the College of Natural Sciences; 4 in the College of Communication and Education; 2 in the College of Business; and 1 each in the Colleges of Agriculture and Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology.

Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Scott G. McNall said, "We are delighted to welcome 44 new faculty to campus. They bring with them a rich range of experience and depth of knowledge, which will be of benefit not only to our students but to the entire campus community. We are looking for good things from them and want their experience as new members of the campus community to be a warm and positive one."

The new faculty join an existing full- and part-time instructional faculty of approximately 900 and, although final figures aren't in for fall 2000, a student population of approximately 15,800.
