Message from Simon Kim

simon_1Quest is the first of its kind at California State University, Long Beach, and highlights the wide range of research, scholarly, and creative endeavors conducted by our faculty on and off campus across all disciplines.

With a primary emphasis on faculty-student research engagement, faculty research provides our students with relevant knowledge and cutting-edge skills that are important for regional economic and workforce development.

Quest was designed to highlight the people and innovations surrounding research conducted across the university. This new publication is a celebration of the institution’s research achievements and recognition of the exceptional work conducted by our faculty and students.

Faculty were awarded over $65 million in external funding this past year, allowing them to conduct research in critical areas, including trauma recovery, health, sustainability, technology, arts and education.

Quest is the result of a close collaboration between the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs and University Marketing & Communications. It will serve as a wonderful method of promoting faculty and student research to the campus community and beyond.

I hope you enjoy reading more about our quest for knowledge at California State University, Long Beach, and the exceptional work being conducted here every day.
