The California State University Board of Trustees has named Leslie E. Wong, president of Northern Michigan University, as president of San Francisco State.
“I am pleased and honored to be chosen as the next president of San Francisco State, and look forward to working closely with students, faculty, and staff,” said Wong. “SFSU’s commitment to social justice, its diverse student body and its position as a leader in the global educational arena make for a vibrant and forward thinking campus community.”
Wong was among the finalists for the position to succeed retiring President Robert Corrigan, who has served as SFSU president since 1988. He is expected to begin his new position as president on August 1.
