Setting the Tone for 2013-14

By Stephanie Thara

University Address

In the beginning of each academic year, the president from every CSU campus addresses his/her respective campus community with thoughts about the past year’s achievements and goals for the upcoming year. Their enthusiasm about their university is contagious, and their words inspire the campus community to strive toward academic excellence.

In their 2013-14 addresses, these CSU leaders have raised the bar and set a new tone for each of their universities. Campus presidents focused on utilizing technology to stimulate innovation, developing partnerships to create designated pathways for youth to enter college and enhancing academic courses that will set a solid foundation for student success.

With the addition of five new campus presidents in 2013, the CSU is gearing up for change and driven to produce the most skilled and qualified individuals to enter the workforce.
