CSU Team

The Chancellor Office (CO) Team consists of four energetic, dedicated, and forward-thinking individuals who are committed to the project’s success. The Team is responsible for overall management of the Graduation Initiative and is charged to support the campuses as they pursue and fulfill their goals. Each team member has communication tasks with the campuses, participate in planning workshops and campus visits, and develop reports to the Chancellor, the Board of Trustees, and the Executive Council
