CSU Chancellor’s announcement of SJSU interim president

Earlier this morning, the CSU’s Office of the Chancellor announced the selection of Stephen Perez, provost and vice president of Academic Affairs at California State University, Sacramento, as the interim president of SJSU. You can find the Chancellor’s full announcement here.

Provost Perez will assume leadership of the campus on Jan. 3, 2022. As I step away from the presidency effective Dec. 21, SJSU provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs, Vincent J. Del Casino Jr., will serve as executive in charge during the two-week transition period.

I have met Provost Perez previously and congratulate him on his appointment. He has my full support, and together we will work toward a seamless transition that helps ensure that the mission of SJSU will continue to move forward.
