Beth Pugliese Named Associate Vice President for Human Resources

I am pleased to announce the permanent appointment of Beth Pugliese as the Associate Vice President for Human Resources. In February, I asked Beth to step into the role on an interim basis. She did so with enthusiasm, and began creating a path forward for the department. Over the course of just a few months, she reorganized the staff and began to strategically align Human Resources goals with Vision 2017. The campus is beginning to see the results of these efforts through streamlined processes, better campus coordination and stronger, more effective communication with the campus community. Based on the progress the department has made under Beth's leadership, I decided to offer her the role permanently. 

Beth has been with SJSU for 22 years, serving in a variety of roles, most recently as the Executive Director of Spartan Shops, Inc. She is an SJSU alumna, holding a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and a Master's degree in Public Administration. Beth's strong belief is that Human Resources is here to serve the campus and assist managers in getting their jobs done, while ensuring fairness and equity across the campus. I am confident that Beth will continue to bring focused and consistent leadership to the Human Resources department and, together with our dedicated staff, provide the best service possible to all stakeholders.

Please join me in welcoming Beth to her new role.
