Dr. Armando Arias, SBS Professor & Founding Faculty, will receive an honorable mention from UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla as a Distinguished Alum at the 2021 Triton Leaders Conference , see https://www.alumni.ucsd.edu/tritonleaders . Dr. Arias is recognized for a career in helping build over a dozen brand new universities and other institutions that provide vanguard work for the social good with a commitment to dismantling norms that perpetuate injustice and systemic inequity. Dr. Arias got his start as both an undergraduate and graduate student helping bring-up brand new programs advancing equity in the curriculum as well as selection of faculty of color at UC San Diego. He moved on to join start-up teams to build out three campuses for the Auraria Higher Education Center (Denver), Area Health Education Center (School of Medicine, UC San Diego), InterAmerican College, several universities for the Texas A&M University System, University of Texas, UC Merced, Academic Program for the Panetta Institute and the Big Sur Environmental Institute to name just a few.
Dr. Arias serves CSU Monterey Bay as a founding planner and founding faculty member in the Division of Social & Behavioral Sciences & Global Studies . His work is archived in over nine linear feet of materials (founding documents, accreditation reports & publications) related to his leadership roles in the founding and development of CSU Monterey Bay at  https://works.bepress.com/armando-arias/52/ .
In 2020, Dr. Arias was awarded the coveted International Latino Book Award for his book Theorizing Cesar Chavez: New Ways of Knowing STEM, which is a critical social psychological treatise of scientific thinking in everyday life, see https://csumb.edu/cahss/armando-arias-receives-award-latest-book .
Currently Dr. Arias’ book project is Re-engineering Higher Education in the State of California by e-Architect Enterprise Design: A How To Manual . This book is a direct response to not only California’s Governor Newson’s quest to find 21st century high-teach solutions on decades-old technology (see, Citizenville: How to Take the Town Square Digital and Reinvent Government , 2013) but also to find high-tech solutions to what the  Corona – 19 virus pandemic has exposed in higher education, see http://works.bepress.com/armando-arias/68/
