PRESIDENT HAGAN’S INVESTITURE: MAY 2, 2014
CSU DOMINGUEZ HILLS: AMERICA HAPPENS HERE
Thank you to everyone who has been involved (Lecture series, STEM conf, student awards)
• More than half a century after its founding, California State University, Dominguez Hills
serves as a conduit between the reality of today’s America and a vision put forth not just by
the CSU, but also by the country’s founders. For if “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”
truly are “inalienable rights,” so too must be affordable, accessible and quality higher
education for those who seek it.
• The investiture of Dr. Willie J. Hagan as the 10th president of California State University,
Dominguez Hills provides an opportunity to reflect on the university’s proud history of
manifesting these principles. It also is a time to reflect on how major issues’ facing today’s
America such as, income inequality, security versus privacy, peace-building and critical and
sometimes controversial scientific advances, unfold at CSU Dominguez Hills and how they
impact us and we them.
• California State University, Dominguez Hills was deliberately placed here in Carson
California to serve as the intersection of promise and hope for a community in crisis and a
source of quality education in a service area that includes some of the wealthiest and
poorest communities in California.
• A university where pride and purpose meet; where upward mobility begins; where public
policy is created, diversity is celebrated, and where a vision articulated more than 200
years ago is made real for a new generation through unprecedented access to affordable,
quality higher education grounded in academic excellence.
• America is a dream that happens every day. America happens at California State
University, Dominguez Hills.
