New Vice President of Student Services Selected
Dr. Andrea Wilson was most recently the Associate Vice President of Student Support Services and Equity Programs at California State University East Bay. In 2010, she was hired as the Director of Student Health and Counseling Services and was promoted to Associate Vice President in 2013 with the re-establishment of the Division of Student Affairs. Her responsibilities included the oversight of Student Health and Counseling Services, Accessibility Services, Student Conduct, Recreation & Wellness Services and Advocacy Services. Her portfolio was later expanded to include the oversight of Student Equity and Success programs that provided services and activities designed to retain and graduate low income, first generation, historically underrepresented and underserved student populations (i.e., EOP, TRiO, foster youth and cultural affinity intervention programs).
Andrea created the Advocacy Services department to provide confidential support services to survivors of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking, as well as case management services to assist at-risk students due to lack of basic needs including housing stability, food security, clothing and access to necessary community resources. The campus opened its first food pantry on the Hayward campus established under her leadership, a second pantry on the Concord campus, and a snack kiosk in the library for after-hours access. Andrea was the chairperson for the University Student Care Team, responsible for addressing students of concern due to disruptive, threatening or violent behavior, the HOPE Advisory Board to address students at-risk due lack of basic needs including emergency intervention aid, the Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drugs Advisory Council to address policies for prevention, education and community treatment programs, and was on the President’s Affinity Center Task Force focused on establishing multiple student affinity centers. Prior to CSUEB, Andrea worked in Student Services for Hayward Unified School District for almost 15 years in various positions including as a Child Welfare and Attendance Advisor, School Guidance Counselor, High School Assistant Principal, Coordinator of Intervention and Prevention Programs, and Coordinator of Student and Parent Support Programs.
Andrea is a proud native of Oakland, CA. She is also a product of the CSU system with four degrees. Her degrees include a Bachelor's degree in Communications from CSU Fresno, a Masters in Educational Leadership and Policy from CSU Sacramento, a Masters in Counseling and Student Personnel from San Jose State University, and a doctorate degree in Educational Leadership for Social Justice from Cal State East Bay, where she focused on studying how universities respond to the specific needs of African American students to improve their retention and graduation rates.
