Please see the following note from President Conoley regarding the passing of former colleague Perrin Reid.
I am very sad to inform you that Perrin Reid passed away unexpectedly after a short illness on May 5th. Perrin, who served as CSULB's Director of Equity and Diversity from 2004 to 2011, worked tirelessly to protect the rights of our faculty, staff, and students, bring greater diversity to our faculty hiring, and helped increase the influence of our campus in Sacramento and Washington D.C. Most recently, Perrin was serving as the Associate Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity and Inclusion at California State University, Fullerton.
Perrin is survived by her husband, Peter, her mother, brother and sister. A memorial service for friends and family will be held on Saturday, May 16 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. at Forest Lawn Memorial Parks & Mortuaries, 21300 Via Verde Drive, Covina. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the American Heart Association in Perrin's memory.
Please keep Perrin's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers as we and our colleagues at the Fullerton campus cope with this unexpected loss.
Next week we will confer an estimated 9,986 bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees for the 2014-15 academic year - the most in campus history. Get all the information you need - including where to park - before the celebrations begin. Learn more.
