Cal State East Bay President Leroy M. Morishita announced Friday that he will extend his service as president of the university through Dec. 31. His message to the campus community is below.

Dear Cal State East Bay Community,

Today, I want to inform you that Chancellor Timothy P. White has asked me, and I have agreed, to extend my service as President of Cal State East Bay through December 31, 2020. The presidential search will be paused and restarted later this year. 

The last few weeks have been filled with unexpected life changes, as we have altered our delivery of instruction and learning, social circles, daily habits, work and school schedules. 

Providing continuity in ensuring the health and safety of our students, staff and faculty is the highest priority, given the uncertainty and quickly changing landscape due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I am committed to carrying out this request and focusing on the needs of our university.

As always, please use our COVID-19 website as a resource for information and announcements. Take good care of yourselves and each other.

Leroy M. Morishita, President
