Alhambra , CA

On Monday, Cal State L.A. announced José Luis Alvarado as the new provost and vice president for academic affairs.

In a press release, Alvarado stresses the importance of the university’s connections with the surrounding community, commitment to social justice and equity and promoting upward mobility.

“It’s about action. I’m absolutely about that,” he says.

When he was 10, Alvarado and and his family immigrated from Mexicali, Mexico to Brawley, Imperial County, Calif., which is bounded by San Diego County, Mexico and Arizona.

He is a first-generation college student who now holds many degrees, including a M.A. in special education from San Diego State and Ph.D. in education with a specialization in special education from the University of Virginia.

Alvarado comes to the Los Angeles campus after 15 years at San Diego State and six years at Cal State Monterey Bay.

Cal State L.A. President William A. Covino says Alvarado’s “experiences, expertise, values and commitment to public service are aligned with the vision, mission and strategic priorities of Cal State L.A.”

The university press release says the new provost and vice president will work with students, faculty and staff to address access, opportunity, transformation and influence at Cal State L.A.

“I’ve never asked anyone to do something I haven’t done myself as a student, a faculty member, an administrator,” Alvarado says. “But if there’s something I haven’t done, I’ll do it alongside you. I have no problem rolling up my sleeves and getting in there. It really is about being a role model and setting an example.”

Alvarado is a resident of Alhambra.
