Leslie Wong named president of San Francisco State U.

The California State University Board of Trustees has named Leslie E. Wong, president of Northern Michigan University, as president of San Francisco State.  

"I am pleased and honored to be chosen as the next president of San Francisco State, and look forward to working closely with students, faculty, and staff," said Wong.  "SFSU's commitment to social justice, its diverse student body and its position as a leader in the global educational arena make for a vibrant and forward thinking campus community."

Wong was among the finalists for the position to succeed retiring President Robert Corrigan, who has served as SFSU president since 1988.  He is expected to begin his new position as president on August 1.   

 “Dr. Wong brings a strong record of accomplishments, academic experience and exceptional leadership skills to his new position as president of San Francisco State," said CSU Trustee Roberta Achtenberg, chair of the presidential search committee.  "He understands the unique mission of the university, and its commitment and respect for scholarship, freedom and diversity.  His vision for the future of SFSU is one that incorporates the multiculturalism of San Francisco and beyond, and makes him an excellent choice to lead the university."

Since 2004, Wong has served as president of Northern Michigan University, which is located in Marquette with an enrollment of approximately 10,000 students.  Wong has spearheaded a number of initiatives during his tenure at NMU including improved academic quality; developed a comprehensive strategic plan for the university; secured funding for the construction of a new academic building; dramatically increased fundraising and grants, and integrated technology throughout the campus.
