Message from the Interim Provost

I am privileged to serve as interim provost at CSUSM. The only public institution of higher learning in North San Diego County, CSUSM boasts a vibrant student body, committed staff, and nationally renowned faculty.

 At CSUSM, our faculty are dedicated to the Teacher-Scholar Model, enriching the ways that they teach, advise, and mentor, with insights garnered from their own research, scholarship, and creative activities. Our students, working and learning alongside their professors, not only become familiar with how experts think and solve problems but, through hands on research and experiential learning opportunities, they are equipped with the experience and tools they need for success.

I am passionate about student success, student access to higher education, mentoring students in research, and the role of the university as a partner in its region’s cultural growth.  As interim provost, I will continue to support CSUSM’s academic mission, values, and commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusive excellence. I urge you to visit our beautiful grounds, and in case the trip is too far for you, please explore our engaging website.
