Ellen Junn named president of Stanislaus State, fifth woman in a row picked to lead a Cal State campus

California State University trustees named Ellen N. Junn as the new president of Cal State Stanislaus, marking the fifth time in a row that a woman has been appointed to lead a campus in the largest university system in the nation.

Junn, currently the provost and vice president of academic affairs at Cal State Dominguez Hills, will succeed Joseph F. Sheley when he retires June 30.

Once Junn takes office, there will be 11 women serving as Cal State presidents, more than at any time in the system's history.

Her appointment will also increase the number of Asian American presidents to four.
