Office of Graduate Studies and Research

OGSR Staff



Welcome to the Dean’s Office!

It’s my distinct pleasure to work with CSUMB faculty and staff to develop and maintain rigorous graduate programs that lead to meaningful careers and that fulfill the future workforce needs of California. I will strive to make your education a seamless transition to a better career or a higher graduate degree.

While CSUMB is a relatively new campus in the California State University system, we are extremely proud of the suite of strong graduate programs that we now offer. On behalf of our graduate faculty, I urge you to explore our programs and to let us guide you to your career goals.

Do you want to be competitive in the future job market?  Nearly 500,000 students complete graduate degrees each year in the U.S. They are taking the next step.  Advanced degrees are becoming essential for work in the arts, government, social services, and the sciences. Stay competitive and serve the world.

I invite you to review our website. Learn about us. Choose CSUMB as your home for graduate studies. My staff and I are dedicated to the principles of Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity.


The Office of Graduate Studies and Research exists to improve the whole graduate student experience at CSUMB, including rigorous academic programs and student life.


Graduate students at CSUMB engage in rigorous, rewarding programs; receive effective and efficient student services; engage in the recreation and social opportunities afforded by CSUMB and the region; and, find a fulfilling career or further education that leads to a rewarding life and active participation in our democratic processes.
