The Eighth Annual World Autism Awareness Day is on Thursday, April 2nd, 2015.
Did you know that autism now affects 1 in 68 children in the United States?
The Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders (CSD) and the CSUEB's College Link Program are proud to lead CSUEB in joining the Autism Speaks 2015 Light it Up Blue Campaign to raise awareness of and enhance acceptance for individuals with autism. Students, faculty, and persons with autism in our campus community will host informational booths throughout the day, set up outside the Science Building, Music Building, Library, and the Student Union to share helpful information and resources on autism and to promote CSD's and CSUEB's active involvement in research and advocacy efforts for individuals with autism and their families.
Please join us and be part of this effort by wearing blue on Thursday ,April 2nd, 2015. Let’s shine a light on autism awareness!

Drought and Free Chipper Service for Hayward Residents
Sparse winter rains have left the region locked in a years-long drought leading up to wildfire season. To alleviate conditions conducive to wildfire spread the Hayward Fire Department is bringing back its “No Cost Residential Chipper Service.” This popular program helps residents manage tree limbs, shrubs, and other cuttings generated from controlling vegetation that would fuel a fire near their homes.
The chipper service will truck away chipped materials for recycling, or leave them with residents upon request, for use in weed abatement and erosion control. Last year's program made 152 pickups of chipped trees and shrubs removed by residents from an aggregate area of more than 78 acres around their homes.
The chipper service is available on a first-come-first-served basis to residents in the high fire hazard areas in Hayward and Fairview. It will run for six weeks, from March 30th through May 8th, or until funds are depleted. For more information, and to register for the chipper service, go online to www.hayward-ca.gov/City-Government/Departments/Fire/ or call the Fire Administration Office at (510) 583-4930.
The program is free and is funded through the California Fire Safe Council by a grant from the Cooperative Fire Program of the U.S. Forest Service, Department of Agriculture, Pacific Southwest Region.
Diversity Development Program 2014-15
The University Office of Diversity brings you The Diversity Development Program (DDP), which is a program that celebrates CSUEB’s diversity while also addressing the unresolved issues and concerns that exist in a diverse university community. Resolving these problems is essential to working in a harmonious atmosphere. This program provides a unique opportunity for staff and faculty to engage in serious discussion on various topics concerning diversity. The DDP is co-sponsored with Faculty Development and LEEP.

Haven Sexual Assault Prevention Training for Students
On October 15, 2014, all CSUEB students received an email indicating that they MUST complete sexual assault prevention training online. Due to the large population of students receiving this message, it is likely that staff and faculty will receive questions regarding the training.
In anticipation of this, we have created a FAQ page on the Title IX Website. Please either direct students to the FAQ web page, or reference the web page to answer common questions.
Should you receive questions that cannot be answered by the FAQ page, please direct students to send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
