Letter from the Vice Chancellor for Human Resources

Leora Freedman Dear Friends of the California State University,

I am pleased to share with you our annual Employee Profile, where you’ll find the latest statistics and employee stories from 2022. This information demonstrates the CSU’s commitment to a diverse workforce, and the impact of our greatest strength – our valued staff, faculty and student employees.

Collectively we share the CSU spirit and commitment to our student’s success. One of the greatest assets of our workforce is the remarkable diversity we bring to every dimension of the organization. This blending of backgrounds, cultures and experience fosters a productive and innovative environment allowing the CSU to thrive in an unparalleled community of talents and contributions.

As a national leader in higher education, we strive to attract, develop and retain a high-performing and inclusive workforce reflective of our student body and today’s global work environment. What clearly distinguishes the CSU among others is the depth and breadth of the CSU’s employees and the impact of their work—from teaching and research to scholarship, creative activities and service. The diverse backgrounds and knowledge of our faculty and staff provide our students a transformative educational experience, providing essential skills for lifelong success in problem-solving, critical thinking and reasoning, communication and cultural competence.

I invite you to enjoy this annual publication and hope you will find this information useful and inspiring. I also believe you’ll gain a better understanding of the people who collectively make the CSU such a special place to work and learn.

Warm Regards,

Leora Freedman Signature 

Leora Freedman
