Cal State L.A. Names Dean of
Extended Education

Los Angeles, CA – Mustafah Dhada (San Diego resident) has been appointed as the Dean of Extended Education at California State University, Los Angeles, effective June 15, 2005.

In this capacity, Dhada has strategic and fiscal responsibility for carrying out continuing- and professional-education activities operated in a diverse array of self-supporting educational programs and services locally, nationally and internationally. These programs complement and augment the basic state-supported degree programs and curricula offered by CSULA.

Dhada will provide leadership to the Division of Extended Education staff in setting goals and in developing new offerings. In doing so, he will work closely with fellow Cal State L.A. deans, administrators, chairs of academic departments, and faculty members.

Dhada most recently served as Vice-Provost of Undergraduate Studies, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Dean of the Graduate School of Social and Policy Studies at Alliant International University, Scripps Ranch Campus, San Diego. His responsibilities included coordinating, administering and managing a multi-location campus of the university, which had learning centers in California, Mexico, Kenya, Japan and Thailand. He also brought in $210,000 in summer-time revenue through innovative programs in filmmaking, multimedia boot camps, forensics and criminalistics, and technical writing.

Dhada is a Fulbright Scholar and author of the critically acclaimed book, Warriors At Work. He is also a sculptor, calligraphist, and member of the Executive Committee of the Fulbright Association-San Diego Chapter, the American Political Science Association, the International Studies Association, and the African Studies Association. Dhada earned his B.A. in International Relations from the School of African and Asian Studies at Sussex University, Falmer, Brighton, England, and his Ph.D. from the University of Oxford in England.
