Although it may not be the most pressing topic on your mind right now, CSULB’s new Vice President for Student Affairs (VPSA) will be selected very soon – and their influence will be great.

The new VPSA will oversee a $38 million annual operating budget in addition to many important departments on campus, such as Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), Housing & Residential Life, the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) and many more. Moreover, the selected VPSA will serve as the direct link between students and President Jane Conoley, which will make them a key advocate for the needs of the student body – which is why it is imperative students come out to meet the candidates.
