Sean Walker, Ph.D.

Faculty Leadership in Collegial Governance Award, 2017-18
Department of Biological Science

“We have a great community of people here and the only way to make it all work is to work together."

Throughout his 13 years on campus, Sean Walker has been an active and involved faculty representative on committees and subcommittees focusing on topics ranging from the University Master Plan to student fees, enrollment management and information technology.​

The professor of biological science has distinguished himself as a leader within his department, college, university and CSU, tenure as a senator, vice chair and chair on the campus senate and on the Statewide Academic Senate. Key, says his peers, “has been his commitment to making decisions after a process that involves consultation, identification of key issues, collection and analysis of appropriate data and then working to easy any necessary transitions — always with the good of students, faculty, staff and CSUF in mind.”
