Serving as Dean of the Pollak Library is the greatest honor of my academic career. With a team of dedicated library faculty and staff we are moving the institution forward in service to the faculty and students of California State University Fullerton. As our values statement asserts we are committed to empowering and nurturing our academic community in the pursuit, discovery, and creation of knowledge. We are particularly focused on advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in our collection and our services and on forging strong partnerships with faculty to enhance their teaching and research. My aim is to provide the leadership and strategic planning to support the library team in this endeavor.
I bring more than two decades of experience at CSUF to the work at hand, having worked my way up through the faculty ranks and serving two terms as chair of the academic senate. Those opportunities and the relationships that resulted from them are part and parcel of what I contribute to the work of the Library. The pandemic and a rapidly evolving technological landscape mean libraries are at a critical point, and I look forward to helping Pollak Library navigate the change.
