President's Office Staff
Special Assistant to the President
Amanda Theis serves as the Special Assistant to the President. Amanda has been incredibly busy working on a variety of projects, but most importantly this year, she will be lending staff support to the Presidential Transition Team and chairing the Presidential Inauguration Committee. She is responsible for the general oversight of the President's Office including the office budget, staff, and the calendar. She also serves as our liaison to the Chancellor's Office and Trustee Secretariat. You've probably seen her out and about with President Junn during her first 100 days on campus! Prior to joining the President's Office in September 2015, Amanda worked in the state legislature for six years. She is a graduate of Sacramento State and is currently pursuing her master's degree in public administration at Stanislaus State.

Neisha has more than 15 years of administrative experience, and most recently served in the Provost's Office at CSU Dominguez Hills, where she is also an alumna.
