Cal State Dominguez Hills Online MPA Student
Among Elected Officials Selected Nationwide
for Toll Fellowship Program

Carson, Calif. – California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) graduate student Kevin Lembo has been selected for the prestigious Toll Fellowship Program sponsored by The Council of State Governments (CSG). Lembo, who is pursuing an online master’s in public administration (MPA), is also the assistant state comptroller for the State of Connecticut. CSUDH is recognized as one of the leading universities in the nation with online academic programs.

“This is an extraordinary opportunity to spend some time with some of the best minds in state government, to share ideas with the goal of bringing those ideas back to our home states,” Lembo said.

Lembo was selected along with 39 other elected officials and state leaders from across the nation to attend the weeklong fellowship program to be held from June 26 – July 1, in Lexington, KY. The fellowship is named in honor of Henry Toll, a Colorado senator who founded the CSG. The program is designed to develop the next generation of leaders from various branches of government.

Lembo has served in the State Comptroller’s office since 1998. Previously, he was chief-of-staff to the Lt. Governor of New York. Lembo is a member of the American Society for Public Administrators. He earned a bachelor’s with an emphasis in psychology at Charter Oak State College in New Britain, CT, before entering the online master’s program at CSUDH.

The CSG has offices in Atlanta, Kentucky, New York, Sacramento, and Washington, D.C. The Council is a national nonpartisan, nonprofit public service organization. The Council serves 50 states, six U.S. territories and commonwealths. The Council provides legislative conferences and executive workshops, research information and multistate problem-solving opportunities for state governments.
