Message from the Vice President
Welcome! My name is Harry Le Grande, and I will be serving as Interim Vice President for Student Affairs at California State University, Fullerton for the next year. Student service is my passion and purpose in life, and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue my career at an esteemed university like Cal State Fullerton.
For those who may be unfamiliar with us, the purpose of the Division of Student Affairs at CSUF is to transform the lives of our students academically, personally and professionally, equipping all with the knowledge and skills required for success at CSUF and beyond. Former Vice President Berenecea Johnson Eanes, who was recently appointed as a university president in New York, maintained a strong focus on this purpose statement and I plan to do the same, operating through a student-first lens.
Throughout my career, my mantra has been that ‘students are not an interruption in our day but the reason we are here.’ Times of transition can present their own unique challenges, but if we hold to that mantra – one characterized by steadiness and servant leadership – I know our students and Division will continue to thrive. I look forward to collaborating with the outstanding staff that are already in place, keeping the Division of Student Affairs focused on meeting the needs of the CSUF community as the search for a permanent vice president commences.
Please contact my office should you ever need anything, and remember: Titans Reach Higher!
Harry Le Grande
Interim Vice President for Student Affairs
