I am pleased to announce that Dr. Charles Gossett has accepted the position of Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Dr. Gossett has served as dean of Sacramento State’s College of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies since arriving on campus in Fall 2009. Previously, he spent seven years as chair of the Department of Political Science at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
His academic experience extends overseas as well, with service as a Fulbright lecturer at the University of Swaziland and as a Fulbright Scholar at the Centre for the Study of HIV and AIDS at the University of Botswana. Dr. Gossett also has extensive experience in government. He worked for both the federal government and the District of Columbia.
Dr. Gossett earned his bachelor’s degree from Hope College in Michigan and his master’s degree and Ph.D. from Stanford University.
The interim appointment officially begins June 1 and will be in effect for one year. In the meantime, we are already working to ensure a smooth transition before current Provost Joseph Sheley assumes the interim presidency of California State University, Stanislaus, on June 11.
We will also be evaluating options for the leadership of SSIS.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Gossett.
