Rob Gunsalus, the previous vice president for university relations and advancement and president of the CSUN Foundation, will take on a new role supporting president Dr. Erika Beck in a variety of strategic initiatives. Steingraber will temporarily fill these roles to provide leadership while a national search is undertaken to permanently fill those job. The position is expected to be filled by January.
“It’s a privilege to support the university and its president, and when these responsibilities are complete, I look forward to again providing my undivided attention to the Soraya. Meanwhile, I will be at performances this fall for our joy-filled reunion,” Steingraber said in a statement.
As executive and artistic director of the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Center for the Performing Arts, Steingraber has booked attractions at the theater since 2014, raising record philanthropic investment and played a central role in the $17 million gift from the Nazarian family foundation that renamed the performing arts center.
