Sonoma State University was invited to join the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC), the prestigious group of 19 universities and colleges across the nation that are often described as the “Public Ivies.” Sonoma State is the only university to represent California in COPLAC.

With the retirement of Provost Bernie Goldstein, a new Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Eduardo Ochoa, has been selected. Formerly the Dean of the School of Business at Cal Poly Pomona, Dr. Ochoa joined the SSU administration in July 2003. Bernie Goldstein

Many long-time faculty retired, and we actively hired new faculty. Approximately 20 new tenure-track faculty members were hired annually during the past five years. In 2002-2003 alone, thirty-three new tenure-track faculty were hired. We consistently attracted outstanding teacher-scholars.

The amount of annual grant and contract awards to Sonoma State University from external funding increased from $11.2 million in 1998-1999 to $26.8 million in 2001-2002. This is an increase of approximately 140%.
