As we look ahead to upcoming commencement ceremonies and the anticipation we share with our current and recent graduates, we pause these next few days for a brief but welcomed holiday break. The extended weekend is, for many of us, a time to reflect, spend time with loved ones and express gratitude for what we have.
I had the opportunity earlier this spring to offer welcome remarks at the CSU’s Grad Slam competition. As our College of Graduate Studies is the first graduate college in the CSU system, we were honored and delighted to host our Cal State colleagues and campus representatives. The event reminded me of all the amazing progress we have made with our graduate programs these past few years.
