California State University, San Bernardino President Albert Karnig has announced the appointment of two key administrators to his executive staff.
Dr. Clifford Young will continue as executive assistant to the president, and will focus more attention on federal, state and local government relations. Dr. Young will also continue to administer the technology transfer programs and grants to the university.
Dr. Jan Jackson, who has served as the dean of the universitys College of Extended Learning since 1998, has been named Associate Vice President for Executive Affairs. Dr. Jackson will coordinate many of the universitys major initiatives and serve as the campus ombudsperson. The Development and Alumni Affairs departments will now report to her.
Both Clifford and Jan are uniquely qualified through experience and prior success to make exceptional contributions to the university, Karnig said. This is an opportune time to shift our attention to some important issues, and we are very pleased to move forward with these new assignments in the presidents office. Clifford has had significant success in helping the university secure federal funding and there are opportunities for greater success in the future, Karnig said. As he focuses most of his attention in these areas, Jan Jackson will fill some of his previous responsibilities and will assume new assignments that were previously undertaken by the vice president for University Advancement.
Susan Summers has been appointed interim dean of the College of Extended Learning. She has served as associate dean of the college since 1998.
Jackson has been with the extended learning program in various capacities since 1982. She has been responsible for the management of the universitys continuing education program, directing a staff of nearly 40 employees.
Young has been executive assistant to President Karnig since May 1999. A former chair of the public administration department at Cal State, Young is involved in actively advancing the universitys strategic plan, which focuses on the university as a learning community and a partner with community concerns, among other issues.
