President Search

The California State University (CSU) Board of Trustees is beginning the search for a new president of Fresno State to succeed Dr. Joseph I. Castro, who now serves as the Chancellor of the CSU.

CSU board policy requires the chair of the CSU Trustees to appoint a Trustees' Committee and an Advisory Committee to oversee the search. The Advisory Committee is composed of representatives from faculty, staff, students, and alumni, as well as a member of a campus advisory board, all of whom are selected by the campus's constituency groups. Also on the Advisory Committee is a vice president or academic dean from the campus, and a president of another CSU campus - both selected by the chancellor. Both committees function as one unified group.

A Survey Monkey is available for the campus and external community to submit comments regarding professional qualifications, experiences and personal attributes you feel the next President of Fresno State must possess to be successful.
