CSUSB President Thomas Morales’s upcoming first presidential review will be conducted by the CSU Board of Trustees.
According to CSU Chancellor, Timothy P. White, the campus community is invited to submit any comments that they may have regarding the leadership of President Morales.
A presidential review is conducted every three years.
As stated in an e-mail by White, “Those wishing to submit confidential letters should keep in mind that every effort should be made to address the criteria and that neither unsigned letters nor petitions will be accepted.”
One should summit those comments no later than October 26, 2015.
No names or information of the people submitting comments or suggestions will be shown although all comments will be considered.
In the past, faculty have shown some disagreements with some of Morales’ actions, according to The Desert Sun.
Recently the one of the most controversial decisions was the resignation of Dr. Andrew Bodman.
In June 2015, the dismissal of administration staff caused tension and this issue may be addressed during his review.
Some professors believe certain educational programs can be improved upon by Morales.
“Students need more attention in writing, students need to get more help in writing and maybe a new writing requirement would help” said CSUSB professor Dr. James Radomski.
Some students seem to be satisfied with Morales’s plans.
“The improvements that I have seen throughout time would be the increase of CSUSB pride. He has been building a community not just among students but also among the community of San Bernardino. The president has taken time to do little events to inform students about his plans, or to allow students to ask him questions about CSUSB,” said Brenda Yasmin Luis, a graduate student at CSUSB.
“He has been very attentive with the students especially during times where CSUSB students were experiencing feeling unsafe.” continued Luis.
