Meet the Committee to Build Campus Unity

Committee to Build Campus Unity

In an effort to bring that community closer together, in 2011 President Alexander Gonzalez established the Committee to Build Campus Unity, with appointed members who represent students, faculty and staff across campus. Programming has included Convocations featuring nationally-known speakers who addressed topics such as inclusion, race and the role of mentors in our lives.

“Efforts to find ways to build community, served to build community," says the committee. "The Sacramento State family grew closer and the excitement was piqued in the days following the convocation, and the anticipation of wanting more still remains.”
