The CSU Board of Trustees have named Tomás D. Morales as the replacement for retiring CSUSB President Dr. Albert K. Karnig.
A press release was published Thursday May 10 announcing Morales as president-elect for CSUSB. Morales’ achievements and experience as a three-term president of the College of Staten Island, The City University of New York, having served in various capacities at Cal Poly Pomona, including vice president for student affairs, provost and vice president for academic affairs, professor of education and principal deputy to the president were highlighted.
In an e-mail from residing President Karnig, it was noted that Morales would be touring CSUSB for one day next week “to get more acquainted with the CSUSB community and weigh both the opportunities and challenges to be treated in the coming years.”
A retirement gala will be held Saturday May 12 in the Coussoulis Arena to celebrate Dr. Karnig’s 15 years of service to the CSUSB community.
