The following statement is from San Diego State University President Elliot Hirshman about the passing of CSU emeritus trustee Murray Galinson:
"San Diego State University has lost a great friend with the passing of Murray Galinson. His support of higher education changed lives throughout California.
Dr. Galinson left a deep and lasting legacy at the California State University, where he was a trustee for seven years and chaired the board from 2004 to 2006. Under his leadership, the board undertook initiatives that improved CSU graduation rates and promoted higher education in underserved communities.
Dr. Galinson will be deeply missed. He was wise, kind and an unwavering supporter of education in our region and our state. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Galinson’s family and friends at this time."
