Cal State San Marcos Professor Receives 2018 Wang Family Excellence Award

Merryl Goldberg, music and arts professor at Cal State San Marcos, has been named recipient of the 2018 Wang Family Excellence Award in the category of Outstanding Faculty Teaching. The California State University’s Board of Trustees will honor Goldberg at its Jan. 30 meeting in Long Beach.
The annual Wang Family Excellence Award recognizes four outstanding faculty members and one outstanding staff member from the CSU system who, through extraordinary commitment and dedication, have distinguished themselves by exemplary contributions and achievements. As part of their recognition, honorees each receive a $20,000 award that is established through a gift from CSU Trustee Emeritus Stanley T. Wang and administered through the CSU Foundation.
Goldberg gained international recognition for founding the university’s Center ARTES, which offers innovative programs for teaching art to young students. Goldberg also is working on public awareness as part of ART=OPPORTUNITY, a research-based initiative backed by a $200,000 grant from the Stuart Foundation and a $25,000 grant from the Panta Rhea Foundation.
