Nalini Libby

​Operations Manager, School of Cinema
San Francisco State University​

Nalini Libby is an San Francisco State alumna who embodies the qualities of a servant leader. Her meticulous process and management skills, as well as her high standards of professionalism, collaboration and generosity earned her a campus Distinguished Staff Award. “I have a lot of love and enthusiasm for the school, my second family away from home,” she says. Nalini has cultivated a positive atmosphere of warmth and inclusion, and she’s been instrumental in expanding the scope and continuation of the school’s Italian Nuova Accademia di Belle Arte (NABA) international exchange program. Libby also facilitated an annual showcase of students’ films in local theatres. And a recent venture with the San Francisco International Airport has students’ films showing in the international lounge. Libby is most proud of the school’s reputation for preparing students for success in their film careers, which her peers would tell you, “wouldn’t happen without her.” ​
