Shirvani has been a good leader during tough times
Placeholder Image
The current economic recession has financially impacted our entire community. Businesses, families, local governments and our local university, CSU Stanislaus, have been significantly impacted. Tough decisions have been required of all our leaders. Unfortunately, these decisions are necessary in order to ensure the continued viability of our local businesses, governments, and the university.
During these difficult times, Ham Shirvani, as the president of CSU Stanislaus, has had the undesirable but necessary task of making those decisions. President Shirvani has been willing to face those decisions head-on to ensure that the budget priorities of the university remain focused on the students, first and foremost.
Dr. Shirvani has demonstrated his desire to strengthen the university’s ties with the community and business leaders, enhance the value of the Valley, and has emphasized the need to match students’ education to employer and community needs.
CSU Stanislaus is an asset to the City of Turlock economically, educationally, and culturally. As a city councilman and lifelong community member, I fully support the university, through the leadership of Dr. Shirvani. I understand that hard decisions must be made in order to ensure the continued viability and success of the university’s long-term goals in meeting the educational, community, and cultural needs of the city and the Central Valley.
