A MESSAGE FROM INTERIM PRESIDENT JONES

To: All students, faculty and staff
From: Interim University President Geraldine M. Jones

As you know, California University’s leadership team has been working hard to bring our programs, services and payroll into alignment with both the University’s needs and the resources available.

As part of its continuing workforce plan, the University will leave five assistant coaching positions unfilled when those contracts expire on June 30, 2015. The non-renewals will affect assistant coaches in the women’s soccer, men’s soccer, baseball, football and softball programs.

One additional assistant coaching position, in volleyball, will remain unfilled after that contract expires on June 30, 2016.

Workforce adjustments are an essential step in moving the University forward as a strong and fiscally responsible institution. Nevertheless, it is always difficult to make changes that affect people’s livelihoods. I can assure you that the decision to downsize our athletics staff was made only after careful consideration.

I thank our assistant coaches for their service to the University. They have provided guidance and expertise to our student-athletes, and I wish them well in their future endeavors.

As always, I value the support of our campus community as we work side by side to provide an exceptional education and a memorable campus experience for our students. 

Interim President Jones' signature.
