About the Office of Inclusive Excellence

Dear campus community,

CSUSM’s new chief diversity officer, Dr. Aswad Allen, extends a warm welcome to fall semester to all students, faculty and staff, and invites you to watch the above video.

As we move forward together during this time, we are aware that many of us are touched by local, national and international challenges and tragedies, including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Please know that CSUSM has many support services and resources available to you.

In addition, many have expressed interest in how they can help with relief efforts in Afghanistan and Haiti, as well as those communities impacted by the California wildfires and Hurricane Ida. Below are some resource links that may be helpful.
