Preston WhiteThe University Library in partnership with Health Sciences and CLASS has created a memorial fund in honor of Preston White. Preston, the Coordinator of the Library Computer Learning Center and the Adaptive Technology Lab, passed away unexpectedly on October 23, 2007. In addition to working in the Library, he was two-time alumnus; he received his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in June 1992 and his Master of Arts in History in December 2000.

The fund will be used annually for the following missions:
  • To purchase books that reflect Preston's interests in history, psychology, and recreation.
  • To support students with disabilities. This will include emergency loans, text books, tutoring or reading support, and technology for the Adaptive Technology Lab or for an individual student to support their educational pursuits.
  • To support information literacy.
To donate to this fund, make checks payable to the CSU Foundation. You must specify that the funds are to be deposited in the Friends of the CSU Library account in memory of Preston White.
