There are many reasons to be proud of Cal State L.A: our award-winning faculty, scientists, scholars and artists educate one of the nation’s most diverse and dynamic student bodies. The University continues to further a unique and important tradition of graduating first-generation college students. And today, more than 215,000 graduates work throughout Southern California as civic leaders, teachers, business entrepreneurs, engineers, health care and criminal justice professionals.

It’s an honor to represent each and every one of you!

For the past two years, I have had the privilege of leading a group of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to promote and strengthen the Cal State L.A. community. As president of the Alumni Association, I have watched the organization develop innovative programs and services, adapting to member’s needs. From the mentoring and scholarship programs, to Alumni Networks and career workshops, the Association provides valuable resources that aid alumni in their personal and professional growth.

To maintain this momentum forward, we need your support! Even after my tenure ends, I promise to continue to support the Association’s growth and I hope you will join me
