Event Speaker: President Loren Blanchard

Loren J. Blanchard joined the University of Houston-Downtown as its seventh president on March 15, 2021.

President Blanchard previously served as Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic & Student Affairs at California State University (CSU), the largest and most diverse system of higher education in the United States. At CSU, he developed and administered academic and student affairs policies for the 23-campus system. He guided and supported CSU campus administrators on curricula, program design and student services matters. President Blanchard additionally led CSU’s Graduation Initiative 2025, an ambitious effort to increase graduation rates for all students while eliminating equity gaps and preparing more students to meet California’s projected workforce needs by 2030. Since the start of the initiative in 2015, CSU has achieved the highest graduation rates with the largest number of diverse students attaining degrees in the system’s history.
