In 2016 the CSU Counterparts Student Scholarships were launched to provide financial assistance to professional and continuing education students with books or supplies. The campuses compete during CSU Counterparts to win a scholarship for their campus. In late-2016, on behalf of the PaCE Leadership Council, the CSU Counterparts Student Scholarships were renamed to the Harry L. Norman Student Scholarships in the memory of Dr. Harry L. Norman, former Associate Vice President Emeritus for International Programs and Dean of University Extended Education, CSU Fullerton.
Keep your eyes peeled, ears open, and GPS ready for this year’s Counterparts games – a scavenger hunt across Universal City! Sprinkled in the nearby area, from the conference hall to Universal City Walk, you’ll find missions and places of interest, each with points up for grabs.
On behalf of the PaCE Leadership Council of the California State University System, the CSU Counterparts Student Scholarships were renamed to the Dr. Harry L.

In 2016 the scholarships were created to provide a way to help PaCE students with books or supplies. Campuses compete during Counterparts to win a scholarship for their campus.
Norman served 23 years as dean of University Extended Education and was named associate vice president for international programs in 2012 in a consolidation of the University’s several international education departments, programs, and functions.
During his tenure, summer session enrollments increased to 195,000; student participation in the American Language Program grew by 500 percent; University Semester Abroad grew to more than 600 students, and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) membership grew by 169 percent. In addition, more than 220 professional development programs were implemented through International Programs Asia and nearly 150,000 enrolled in campus certificate programs.
Norman successfully completed a $4.5 million capital campaign for the expansion of facilities at the Fullerton Arboretum; established the Garden Grove branch campus in partnership with the city of Garden Grove and Coast Community College District and obtained two $1 million endowments to support the OLLI program.
Prior to joining Cal State Fullerton, Norman served as associate vice provost for the extension and summer quarter at the University of Washington. He earned a doctorate in zoology from the University of Arizona, where he was assistant director of university extension from 1981-84.
