Gonzalez named one of country’s
top Hispanic leaders by magazine

Sacramento State President Alexander Gonzalez has been named one of the 100 most influential Hispanic leaders in America by Hispanic Business magazine.

Gonzalez joins a select group of top executives and professionals from academia, government, entertainment, sports and business. The list includes notables such as Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa; Amador Bustos, Chairman and CEO of Sacramento-based Bustos Media; and actor Andy Garcia.

Nominations from readers, website visitors, contributing editors, writers and magazine staff determined the annual list of the 100 Most Influential Hispanics, which appeared in the October edition.

The magazine, which has a circulation of 245,000 and a total audience of more than one million readers, cited Gonzalez' "Destination 2010" initiative to transform Sacramento State into a metropolitan university by increasing student housing, building the new Recreation, Wellness and Events Center and adding new academic buildings. And it also noted that the president chairs the board of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities.

Gonzalez, who became president of Sacramento State in 2003, is a member of the advisory board for the National Survey of Student Engagement and the board of directors for Valley Vision. He holds a doctorate and a master's degree in psychology from UC Santa Cruz. Gonzalez earned his bachelor's degree in history from Pomona College, where he graduated with honors and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.
