For those of you graduating next month, you’ll have President Donald Para’s signature on your diploma. Shaking your hand will be just about the last thing he does in his long CSULB career that’s taken him all the way from Music Faculty to the President’s office.
In July CSULB’s 7th president, Jane Conoley arrives. Here’s her hello video:
It seems to be all about UC Riverside lately! When UCR Chancellor Tim White resigned in 2012 to become the new CSU Chancellor, Jane Conoley became the Interim UCR Chancellor, a position she has just resigned from to become the new CSULB President.
President Jane Conoley
Conoley holds a B.A. in Psychology from The College of New Rochelle and a Ph.D. in School Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. She’s taught at numerous universities and written many books. Conoley will be the 1st female president in CSULB’s 65-year history, and she’ll be 1 of 4 female presidents in the 23-campus CSU system.
