California State University, Fresno’s Kremen School of Education and Human Development and the Division of Continuing and Global Education are celebrating the university’s Centennial with an exhibit of student and faculty accomplishments.
Training educators was the first mission of Fresno State when it was established in 1911 as a state normal school. The goal was to prepare teachers for the growing number of schools serving the rapidly increasing population of the San Joaquin Valley.
The Kremen Centennial Exhibition is displayed through Sept. 30 in the Pete P. Peters Ellipse Balcony Gallery on the third-floor Table Mountain Rancheria Tower of the Henry Madden Library. The exhibit is open during regular library hours and there is no admission charge.
Pictures of students and faculty through the years, old typewriters and desks, inkwells and a teaching credential of one of Kremen’s first graduates are on display. Part of the exhibit is a video of education alumni sharing what Fresno State meant to them.
The Division of Continuing and Global Education is housed within the Education Building on campus.
