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.
