San Diego State University’s Imperial Valley Campus brings the quality of an SDSU education to an area that is home to groups that are historically under-represented in higher education. Given the campus’ regional focus, responsive curriculum and community engagement, it has become a powerful engine of economic growth for the Imperial Valley.

This fall, SDSU IVC welcomes one new faculty member to carry on the tradition of excellence. She is among 53 new faculty members joining the SDSU family this semester.
