Welcome to the Division of Academic Affairs, composed of all of the academic, administrative, and instructional units within the university. As the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, I offer warm greetings as we approach another promising academic year here at California State University, Dominguez Hills. 

In the role of Provost, my responsibilities include overseeing all academic units, including the university’s six colleges and the University Library, as well as all academic centers, institutes, and instructional programs and activities. As the chief academic officer, the provost provides leadership, in collaboration with the Academic Senate and other stakeholders, to strive for high quality in teaching, scholarship, creative activities, and service for faculty and academic programs. As a longtime member of the CSU community, I am committed to our collective mission of improving student success and ensuring access for the underserved and diverse communities we serve.

I am honored to serve as a member of this community because CSUDH represents everything that is fundamentally good and true when it comes to fulfilling the mission of public higher education, including a steadfast commitment to excellence and innovation, building strong university-community partnerships, and, most importantly, ensuring student success at all levels. 

We have exciting new developments on the horizon, including the opening of a new Science and Innovation building later this academic year as well as welcoming the largest incoming class of new students ever to attend our university. The Toro Nation continues to grow, and I invite you to join our community!
