Our University Leaders

ARCS sincerely thanks and acknowledges the four academic institutions for their commitment to our mission to advance science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medical research in the United States.

As I join SDSU as its 9th permanent president, my priority is to graduate impressive global citizens, compassionate leaders, and ethical innovators who will solve the world's greatest challenges. We could not develop the engineers and researchers of the future without the partnership of the ARCS Foundation."
