Longtime art lovers create CSUSB’s first endowed faculty fellowship Pamela and Dr. Benson Harer, longtime supporters of Cal State San Bernardino and its Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art (RAFFMA), have pledged $500,000 to establish the university’s first-ever fully-endowed faculty fellowship.

The Benson and Pamela Harer Fellowship will support a new tenure-track faculty position focused on Egyptology, a longtime passion for the Harers. The Harer Family Trust has provided a substantial collection of Egyptian antiquities as gifts and on permanent loan to RAFFMA. The collection has become the centerpiece for several educational programs, including a program for local children titled the “Summer Egyptian Workshop for Kids.”
