Updates on Leadership Searches

Dear Cal State East Bay community,

I am writing today to provide a status report on a number of current leadership searches.

Dean of the Library

Search committee has been formed. The search consultant has been engaged. The process is expected to extend from December 2023 until April 2024. 

Dean of the College of Science

During spring semester 2024 I will appoint an interim dean to serve for AY2024-25 while we conduct a search for a regularly appointed dean to begin summer 2025. 

Dean of the College of Health

I will conduct a search for the founding dean during AY2024-25 to begin summer 2025.

Provost and VP for Academic Affairs

I plan to form a search committee during fall semester so I have the option of conducting a search during Spring 2024 or AY2024-25.

AVP for University Extension

I have appointed Balvinder Kumar as interim AVP and have commissioned a strategic growth plan to accelerate revenue generation through Extension. Once that plan has been completed, I will commence a search for a regularly appointed AVP. 

Chief, University Police Department

This search is underway. Finalists have been identified. We expect to complete the search within the next month.

AVP for Financial Services

VP Armstrong has appointed Audrey Katzman as interim AVP to serve as interim AVP during spring 2024 while she conducts a search for a regular replacement. 

AVP for Human Resources

VP Armstrong has appointed Dr. Victoria Morris to serve as interim AVP during spring 2024 while she conducts a search for a regular replacement.

We are grateful for the strong interim leadership we have in place to help us keep our momentum on important initiatives. Thank you to all the individuals who are serving, or will serve, on various search committees. We will continue to keep the Cal State East Bay community informed as these searches progress, including virtual open forum opportunities for several of the positions.

As always sincerely yours,

Cathy Sandeen
