12 Women Leaders of the CSU

In July 2018, for the first time in the system’s history, the majority of presidents of the California State University were female. Of the 23 campuses of the CSU, 12 are now run by women. We sat down with all our female presidents—from Dr. Karen S. Haynes, appointed president of CSU San Marcos in 2003, to the most recent appointment of Dr. Lynnette Zelezny to CSU Bakersfield in 2018—to hear their thoughts on leadership, their path to the presidency and what inspires them.

To learn more about all 12 female presidents of the CSU, read and watch the presidents’ full profiles at the “Women & Leadership” site.
