CSUS names new education dean

Following a national search, Michael J. Lewis has been named dean of the College of Education at California State University, Sacramento. CSUS President Alexander Gonzalez made the announcement Feb. 19.

Lewis has served the College in the position as interim dean for the past 18 months.

A 23-year veteran of the University and the College, Lewis is a professor of special education and chaired the special education department for 12 years. For more than four years he served as project director for both the College and for the CSU Chancellor’s Office investigating the current alignment of CSU subject matter coursework preparation programs for the CSU Trustees, the State Board of Education, and the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

In making the appointment, President Gonzalez said, “Dr. Lewis brings to this position the knowledge, skills and values that will enhance the goals and vision of the College of Education and the university as a whole.”

Lewis holds a doctorate in special education from Columbia University where he also earned his master’s degree. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University and has worked statewide in public policy issues related to special education.

His appointment is effective March 1.
