BECA Alumna Named President at Cal State East Bay
The California State University (CSU) Board of Trustees has appointed San Francisco State University alumna and former faculty member Cathy A. Sandeen (M.A., ’81) to serve as president of California State University, East Bay.
“I am thrilled to return to the Bay Area to work alongside Cal State East Bay’s gifted faculty and staff to further the academic achievement of this wonderfully diverse group of students attending the Hayward and Concord campuses,” said Sandeen. “My own previous experiences and future aspirations closely match Cal State East Bay’s values, and the university-wide commitments to communities of color and sustainability are particularly relevant in this time. I embrace those commitments and will work to further the university’s leadership in these critically important areas.”
Sandeen earned a master’s degree in Broadcast Communication from San Francisco State in 1981 and taught courses in communication, mass communication, new communication technology, radio production and video production at the University from 1981 to 1989.
