AVP for advancement leaves for Sac State
Carole Hayashino, associate vice president for university advancement and development, has been appointed California State University, Sacramento's vice president for advancement.
"Carole Hayashino's strong leadership and team-building skills have brought our Advancement effort to new heights of success," said President Robert A. Corrigan. "Her strong community orientation and deep understanding of the California State University's mission have made her even more valuable to San Francisco State. We will miss her, but I applaud the wisdom of Sacramento State's choice."
Hayashino began her SFSU career in advancement when she was hired in 1997 as director of development. At the time the University had a modest fundraising operation. Since then she has shepherded a period of growth in giving to SFSU, helping to secure funding for the first endowed chairs in campus history as well as other large gifts from individual donors and private foundations and increasing the rate of giving to the annual fund.
One of Hayashino's legacies that is close to her heart is the Garden of Remembrance, a garden and monument on campus that honors the Japanese Americans interned during World War II -- including the 19 students who were forced to leave their SF State studies.
Hayashino is also an SFSU alum and has taught classes in Asian American Studies. She begins her new position in late October.

A fond farewell to Helene Whitson

Stop by for refreshments, music and the chance to write a few words to Whitson.
In her role as archivist, Whitson has worked to document and preserve campus history, in particular sources related to the student strike of 1968-69. She is also responsible for building the San Francisco Bay Area Television Archives, which preserves Northern California's broadcasting history.
