CSU Stanislaus bags $1.17 in stimulus

California State University, Stanislaus will receive $1.17 million in one-time federal stimulus funds to add classes in the 2010/2011 academic year, the university announced Thursday.
The funding, distributed from the $76.5 million garnered by the CSU system in 2009, is the second and final wave of stimulus for CSU Stanislaus.
The university received $575,000 in the first wave of funding, which allowed CSU Stanislaus to add 60 classes to the spring course schedule. About 27 part-time faculty, whose contracts were not renewed in fall 2009 due to budget cuts, will return to CSU Stanislaus for spring 2010 because of the first-wave stimulus funding.
The newly announced $1.17 million will be split between fall 2010 and spring 2011, but CSU Stanislaus Interim Director of Media Relations Eve Hightower stated it was too soon to know how many classes would be added as a result of the funding. The university said that students should expect to see additional offerings of required classes with the longest waitlists.
