Alexander Gonzalez, president of California State University, Sacramento will be the speaker at the next installment of the Breakfast Club Speakers Series, hosted by the CSUS Alumni Association. Gonzalez will speak at 7:30 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 16 in the CSUS Alumni Center.

The free events, which include breakfast, feature a range of guests speaking on hot topics in the Sacramento region in a low-key, off-the-record format that allows audience interaction.

Gonzalez was named the University’s 11th president by the California State University Board of Trustees in March. Before coming to Sacramento, he served six years as president of CSU San Marcos where San Diego magazine named him one of “50 to Watch in 2000” calling him “a no-nonsense educator” and a “hard-charging administrator.” Prior to his stay at San Marcos, Gonzalez spent 18 years at CSU Fresno, as a faculty member and later as provost and vice president for academic affairs. He holds a doctorate and master’s degree in psychology from UC Santa Cruz. He earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Pomona College. He also spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University.

Upcoming speakers in this season’s Breakfast Club series include Sacramento County Sheriff Lou Blanas on Tuesday, March 9 and News 10 anchor Cristina Mendonsa on Tuesday, May 11. Former NBA star-turned-philanthropist Kevin Johnson spoke at the October event.

Gonzalez’ talk is sponsored by the Engineering and Computer Science Chapter of the CSUS Alumni Association.

Seating is limited. For reservations or additional information, contact the Alumni Association at (916) 278-6295.
