CBU College of Health Science campus receives Beautification Award
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (Jan. 20, 2017) -- The revitalization of the College of Health Science campus at California Baptist University has received a beautification award from the Keep Riverside Clean and Beautiful (KRCB) program.
CBU received second place in the category of Exterior Reconstruction with Landscaping. Mayor Rusty Bailey and Cindy Roth, CEO of the Greater Riverside Chambers of Commerce, presented the KRCB awards after the annual State of the City address on Jan. 19. Dr. Charles D. “Chuck” Sands, CBU provost and vice president for academic affairs, accepted the accolade on behalf of the university.
KRCB is a community-sponsored program by the City of Riverside and the Greater Riverside Chambers of Commerce. Its mission is to foster a sense of community pride by creating partnerships that work toward the beautification of the city.
CBU’s College of Health Science project was a $17.5 million-plus infrastructure remodel of the former Riverside Christian School complex located at 3532 Monroe St. The facility now serves as the campus for CBU’s College of Health Science. It includes office space, classrooms and labs, hosting a broad range of programs including an associate degree program plus 15 undergraduate and five graduate programs. More than 1,000 students are enrolled at the College of Health Science during the 2016-17 academic year.
The 2017 award follows two consecutive first-place finishes for CBU in the Exterior Reconstruction with Landscaping category the past two years. In 2016, CBU was recognized for the remodeling project of student residences known as The Point, and in 2015 for the Lancer Plaza North project.
