Cal State trustees appoint 5 campus presidents
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Five of the California State University’s 23 campuses are getting new leaders.
The university’s Board of Trustees announced Wednesday that it had approved a round of presidential appointments. Three of the positions were filled by administrators who have held the posts on an interim basis since last year, while two went to officials working at different campuses from the ones where they will hold the top jobs.
The schools getting fresh faces are two of the system’s biggest — Cal State Los Angeles, which enrolled nearly 22,000 students in the fall, and Cal State Fresno, which has nearly 23,000.
William Covino, Fresno State’s vice-president for academic affairs, was picked to run Cal State Los Angeles.
A vice chancellor at UC San Francisco, Joseph Castro, was selected to lead Fresno State.
