A World That is Changing Fast

"We live in a world that is changing fast.  Whether understanding political trends or the amazing technology that facilitates a global perspective, we need to change with it.  Our staff needs the knowledge and tools to prepare students to successfully transition to ‘life after Cal;’ which is why we have formed: Student Affairs Learning and Development, dedicated solely to the ongoing growth and development of our staff.”

-Harry LeGrande, former Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
