SDSU Office of the President

About President Weber

Stephen L. Weber, the seventh president of San Diego State University, provides dynamic leadership to an institution that ranks among the largest in the nation. Under President Weber's guidance, students, faculty, staff, alumni and community leaders have participated in shaping “Shared Vision” – a road map for the university's future with goals such as reinforcing academic excellence, nurturing students, honoring diversity and social justice, carefully stewarding resources and further developing global programs. In the process, SDSU has become an increasingly popular and selective choice among college-bound students. The overall academic quality of SDSU's incoming students is rising, and alumni involvement and private financial support of the university have never been stronger.

President Weber is the past chair of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities Board of Directors, and co-chairs Partners for K-12 School Reform. He also serves on the boards of governors of The Peres Center for Peace, and on the boards of directors of the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation, the San Diego Science and Technology Council, and the California Healthcare Institute. He also is a member of the international advisory board for the Foundation for Children of the Californias.

Born in Boston, President Weber is a graduate of Bowling Green University with a B.A. in philosophy. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Notre Dame in 1969 and is the author of numerous articles on philosophy and higher education.

Our word education comes from Latin educare, which means 'to lead forth.' Ours is the work of life itself. Its roots stretch back past the universities of Paris and Bologna, past Plato's Academy, past sages and storytellers around camp fires, past apes learning to fashion and manipulate tools-back to the dawn of life itself. Always life has been about educare, the passion to lead forth, to extend itself to new and higher capacities.
