It is with great pride and joy that we announce that 100BMOC founding member and creator of the 100BMOC Passport to the Future Program, Dr. Thomas Parham, has been appointed President of California State University, Dominguez Hills.
The California State University (CSU) Board of Trustees has appointed Thomas A. Parham, Ph.D. to serve as president of California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH). Parham currently serves as vice chancellor, student affairs for the University of California, Irvine (UCI).
“There is no greater blessing in life, next to being a parent, than being entrusted with the intellectual and personal growth and development of students, and I enthusiastically support the CSUDH mission to provide a transformative education to a wonderfully diverse and intellectually engaged student population,” said Parham. “This is a time of growth and opportunity for the university and there are many exciting challenges that lay ahead at CSUDH. I am looking forward to being a servant leader and collaborating with faculty, engaging students and staff, and working with alumni and all members of the campus and surrounding community of Los Angeles, the greater South Bay area, and the state of California to fulfill our collective vision for a 21st century comprehensive university. I am honored to be selected to build on the legacy left by those who preceded me in this role.”
Parham becomes the eighth permanent president of CSUDH. He will join the campus in his new role in late June. Parham succeeds Willie Hagan who will retire from the university at the end of the 2017-18 academic year.
