About the CLFSA President
Dear Members of the Chicano/Latino Faculty and Staff Association:
The new CLFSA President of our Chicano/ Latino Faculty and Staff Association for the 2017-18 academic year is Dr. Joe Albert Garcia.
Dr. Joe Albert Garcia, Associate Professor of Human Services and interim Director for Graduate Studies.
Dr. Garcia has been a member of the Cal State Fullerton faculty for more than 10 years. He has taught Counseling Theories and Techniques, Research Methods in Human Services, Intercultural Socialization, and Human Service Delivery to Latinos. Most importantly in the teaching realm, Dr. Garcia has been one of the instructors for what students often declare is the “Best” class on campus – Character and Conflict (HUSR 300), a class based on self-reflection and intrapersonal growth. Before coming to CSUF, Dr. Garcia taught Abnormal Psychology and Advanced Research Methods & Statistics at UCLA.
Dr. Garcia’s work has also been featured in peer-reviewed publications, including American Journal and Educational Science, Journal of Child Custody, American Journal of Psychiatry, and Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology.
In his current work, he advocates for inclusion and the importance of graduate students in every facet of campus life at Cal State Fullerton. He manages the development of curriculum for all graduate programs, has led and presented at workshops for graduate students, assisted in the professional development activities of graduate students, coordinated the Graduate Equity program, managed the Giles T. Brown Philanthropic Endowment, and oversaw the process and exceptions to graduate students’ study plans, leaves of absence, probation and disqualification, and graduation.
