Welcome to the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences
I am delighted to welcome you to the 2019-2020 Academic Year! As I am entering my “sophomore” year as Dean I am happy to be firmly part of the CSUN family that can introduce you to the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
The beginning of a school year was one of my favorite rituals as a child. I liked the excitement of back to school shopping and rekindling relationships at the start of the year. That feeling never gets old for me. Also what I am drawn to is the possibility of the school year. It is the possibility that stirs my excitement. That possibility greets us at the beginning of 2019-20 in CSBS.
