History Department

Professor Jeffery Livingston awarded Outstanding Faculty Service 2018-2019

Now in his 30th year at California State University, Chico, Dr. Jeffery Livingston is a Professor in the Department of History where he teaches courses in modern American History. His department and college service includes serving on thirty-four graduate committees, ten of which he chaired, chairing or sitting on the department curriculum and personnel committees for more than a decade each, sitting on or chairing ten college committees, and chairing numerous search committees. Livingston serves as the advisor to approximately one hundred students in the History/Social Science Pre-Credential Option. He is Vice Chair of the campus Academic Senate and has served on a number of campus-wide committees (31 total), including the Enrollment Management Advisory Committee, the Campus Fee Advisory Committee, the Academic Affairs ABC Budget Task Force, and the President’s Post-Camp Fire Touch Base working group.

A first-generation college student himself, Livingston is committed to working with students who likely lack the advantages enjoyed by some of our more affluent students. He worked fourteen years with the Summer Orientation Program (2004-2018), more recently served as a faculty mentor to REACH (Raising Educational Achievement in Collaborative Hubs), and is a member of Chico State’s First Generation and Proud Faculty and Staff Association.

Livingston has authored more than 40 academic book reviews, participated in multiple conference panels either giving or commenting on papers, and in spring 2017 was interviewed by C-SPAN to discuss his book Swallowed by Globalism: John M. Vorys and American Foreign Policy. He continues to work on a longstanding research project, exploring the history and significance of the 1976 American Revolution Bicentennial Commemoration.
