Following Monday evening’s shooting in Michigan, we mourn for and with our fellow Spartans, and our heartfelt condolences go out to the families and friends of those killed and injured.
It is with deep sorrow that I write to you during this Lunar New Year after learning the news of a mass shooting in Monterey Park, California in a neighborhood in which a majority of first-generation Asian Americans and Asian immigrants reside. My heart is heavy for the students, faculty and staff who are from Southern California, have families and friends in the area and are connected to communities there. Know that we are here for you.
It is truly an honor for me to begin my tenure as president of San José State University today. I am so very appreciative of the warm welcome I received as I made my way onto campus and into Clark Hall this morning. Sammy Spartan was even waiting in the office when I arrived.
It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly three months since I joined San José State University as interim president. As I’ve very much enjoyed listening to members of our campus community and learning about this incredible university, it feels like a great time to offer a report of sorts on what I’ve observed.
