Both Luster and Audrey Hauth have a deep rooted connection to California State University, Long Beach. Luster taught at CSULB for 28 years in the Communication Studies Department, never missing a single day of class and is now an emeritus professor of the department. Audrey is an alumna of CSULB, graduating with a degree in English Literature. Together, they have created the Luster E. and Audrey Nichol Hauth Center for Communication Skills. In further support of the Communication Studies Department, Luster has donated a collection of his personal library to the department as well as an endowed fund to support the maintenance of the collection. This donation created the Luster E. Hauth Rhetoric and Public Address Library Collection, and is located in the third floor conference room of the Academic Services (AS) building.
