Agriculture’s Cindy Daley Wins Prestigious Wang Award

College of Agriculture professor Cindy Daley has been named one of five recipients of the California State University Wang Family Excellence Award for 2003.

Daley and the honorees from other CSU campuses will each receive a $20,000 award.

Former CSU trustee Stanley T. Wang established the Wang Family Excellence Award in the amount of $1 million in 1998. Its purpose is to recognize and celebrate CSU faculty and administrators for extraordinary accomplishments.

Over a 10-year span, four faculty members and one administrator will be honored each year with an award. This is the fifth year awards have been given.

The Wang Award is the latest in a string of honors for Daley. Earlier this year, she was named as CSU, Chico’s Outstanding Professor for 2002-03. Last year, the American Association of State Colleges of Agriculture and Renewable Resources named her the recipient of its Outstanding Teacher Award. In 2001, the California Agriculture Teachers Association presented her with its Teacher of Teachers Award.

Conference Explores “Valuing” Environmental Resources

Economists from California, Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming, and Florida will gather in Chico on Friday, April 25, for a conference on the economic valuing of environmental resources.

Environmental economists will present case studies of resources in Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. The content is especially relevant to residents and businesses in these areas, although the methodology is applicable to the valuation of resources anywhere.

Presentations will address a range of environmental topics, including endangered species, fisheries, invasive species, and shipment of nuclear wastes. The research presented will employ various valuation methods, including contingent valuation, travel cost, and economic-ecological modeling.

Experts from the California State University system, the University of California, and universities in Nevada, Oregon, Wyoming, and Florida will be speakers and panelists. See page 3 for a list of speakers.
