Announcing our new AVP for Faculty Affairs

Dear Campus Community,

I am excited to announce the appointment of Dr. Jason Myers to the position of Associate Vice President for Faculty Affairs at Stanislaus State effective January 1, 2017. Dr. Myers is already a proud Stanislaus State Warrior, having served as a valued faculty member in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration since 2001. He also served as the Department Chair from 2005-2010. In addition to his role in Political Science and Public Administration, he has served as the chair of our campus CFA chapter's Professional Rights Committee for more than six years.

When speaking with Dr. Myers about his appointment he said, "I'm honored by the invitation to join President Junn's team and to have the opportunity to serve our university in this new capacity."

Our new Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Kimberly Greer, said about Dr. Myers, "I am very pleased that Dr. Myers has accepted the position of Associate Vice President Faculty Affairs. Throughout his career, he has demonstrated a deep commitment to shared governance and a passion for supporting faculty excellence. I look forward to working with Dr. Myers in our new roles at Stanislaus State."

Stuart Sims, Speaker of the Academic Senate, also commented saying, "I'm genuinely pleased to welcome Dr. Myers as our new AVP for Faculty Affairs. He is well known and widely respected on our campus, and brings outstanding experience and knowledge to this essential role."

I am so grateful that Dr. Myers has agreed to accept this important position. I am confident that he will serve our campus and our faculty very well. Please join me in congratulating Dr. Myers as he transitions to the administration from the ranks of our valued faculty.

Sincerely,
