Joshee comes to CSULB from Cal State San Bernardino (CSUSB), where for the last three years he served as dean of the College of Extended Learning and professor of education. During that time he expanded the college’s presence locally and internationally, establishing the American Culture and Language Program Center in Seoul, South Korea, the first overseas center of its kind for CSUSB.
“Dr. Joshee is highly regarded as a creative and very able administrator. He is eager to work with our faculty, students and university community as well as our many extension partners to build upon the excellent reputation UCES has established,” said Karen L. Gould, provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs. “Under Dr. Joshee’s leadership, I am confident that University College and Extension Services will continue to thrive and will help move the university forward in new and exciting ways.”
While at CSUSB, Joshee also created the China Programs Office at CSUSB to provide specific management training and education programs for Chinese government officials, as well as public and private sector executives. In addition, under his leadership, the campus opened a Cal State Downtown Center in the City of San Bernardino, increased educational programs for public and private sector employers and employees, secured a $1 million endowment from the Bernard Osher Foundation, and expanded the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute throughout the Coachella Valley.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to lead University College and Extension Services at Cal State Long Beach,” Joshee said. “UCES has an excellent tradition and a long history of serving the community and adult learners. I intend to develop programs that will further enhance economic development in Southern California and throughout the state.”
