Announcement — Director, University Honors Program

To the University Community:
I am very pleased to announce that Dr. Sandra Perez has been appointed as the next Director of the University Honors Program. Dr. Perez received her Ph.D. in Hispanic Languages and Literatures at UCLA, her MA in Spanish at UCLA, and two BAs in Spanish and in English at the University of San Diego. She is currently a professor of Latin American Literature and Culture at CSU, Fullerton and is the Director of the University Honors Program there. She is also active in the National Collegiate Honors Council, where she was recently elected to the Board of Directors and where she serves on the Ad Hoc Diversity and Inclusion Committee and on the Ad Hoc Committee reviewing Basic Characteristics documents for Honors Programs and Honors Colleges. Dr. Perez will begin her new position with us on July 1.

I would like to thank all of the members of the search committee, especially Dr. Lindsay Perez Huber, chair, as well as Dr. Anna Ortiz, faculty equity advocate, for all of their hard work on this search.
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Sandra Perez to CSULB.
