Watkins named Director of Outreach Services
Steven Watkin has been named the Director of Outreach Services at California State University, Bakersfield.
Watkin came to CSUB from CSU Fresno, where he served for five years in the outreach office. Prior to that he was in the Fresno Pacific University admissions office.
A native of Fresno, Watkin earned two degrees from Fresno Pacific University, a master's degree in administrative education, and a bachelor's degree in business administration. He is married and has four children.
Watkin replaces Manuel Maranan, who has taken a position with a San Francisco Bay Area firm.
"My first impression is this is an area that has a lot of potential," Watkin said. "I see my role as communicating the message to students that yes you can, you can apply and you can attend CSUB.
"In today's competitive world students really need a university education," he said. "I want to make sure they're aware of their opportunities here at CSUB."
