New president to begin at CSUS

Photo: Alexander GonzalezFor the first time in 19 years, California State University, Sacramento will open its fall term with a new president, Alexander Gonzalez. He officially arrives on campus July 7, 2003.

There will be media and photo opportunities during his first day on campus. Please call public affairs at (916) 278-6156 to schedule.

Gonzalez will present his first speech to the campus community at 10 a.m., Thursday, Aug. 28 in the University Union Ballroom. Classes begin Sept. 2.

Gonzalez was named the 11th president of CSUS last spring by the CSU Board of Trustees. Most recently, he has been president of CSU San Marcos.
