New to CSUB, Jane Dong previously served as an associate dean of the College of Engineering, Computer Science and Technology at Cal State LA. There, she developed a Teaching and Learning Academy for faculty and students, an advisory council that fostered relationships between professional and faculty advisers. She also established a Successful Transfer and Retention (STAR) program. While an advisor, professor and researcher, she’s realized her role as an administrator provided her the opportunity to better support the students. She brings this passion and focus to her role at CSUB — whether it’s addressing needs for space or resources, or encouraging collaboration to identify the collective vision of the school of NSME.” “I’m here to grow with NSME and help our students reach their full potential. I hope to increase our visibility and success as a leader in STEM and health care education in the region, state and nation,” Dong says. ​
