“I love to learn from history,”
says Brenda Knepper, the new director of
university and development communications. Knepper, who is completing her master’s degree in
humanities at CSUDH, recognizes the University’s mission and its history of serving an urban community in the wake of the Watts riots of 1965, as communications tools that encourage the public to take another look at the “hidden jewel” of the South Bay.
