Sac State's New President: Robert S. Nelsen


There’s a changing of the guard this summer at one of the Sacramento region’s main universities. Sacramento State University President Alexander Gonzalez retired June 30 after 12 years leading the school. His replacement is Robert S. Nelson, who was most recently special advisor to the University of Texas’ executive vice chancellor for Academic Affairs.

Nelsen says one of his goals is to improve graduation rates. That includes getting younger kids ready for college in order to reduce the amount of time it takes students to get a university degree. Nelsen joins us to expand on his goals as the head of Sacramento State and explain his vision for the future.
