The University extends its heartfelt gratitude to Chief Roy for his fair and consistent leadership, and also commends him for the example he set for his department.

“We can’t thank Andy enough for his service and dedication to the University,” said Darrell Haydon, Vice President for Business and Finance and CFO. “Under Andy’s direction, Stan State’s University Police Department has made this campus one of the safest in the CSU system.”
