Staff turnover continues at Cal State East Bay.

Audrey Katzman, Academic Affairs budget and communications director, will leave East Bay this month in pursuit of a position in Walnut Creek, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Edward S. Inch said Aug. 24.

Katzman initially filled the role as executive assistant for the chief of staff in the president’s office, according to Inch. In 2011, she became the interim and permanent business manager for the Division of Information Technology Services. She has directed the budget and communications for Academic Affairs since 2013.

The Office of Academic Affairs provides support to department chairs and faculty through faculty appointments, evaluations, disciplines, leaves and separations; and department chair development, according to the OAA. It also addresses contract issues and grievances, academic policy information, academic budgetary resources and faculty salary information at East Bay’s Hayward, Concord and online campuses.

Donna Gillott Monsoor has stepped in as interim director of budget and communications for Academic Affairs during fall term while the university searches for a permanent replacement, Inch announced last Thursday. Monsoor worked as the budget and personnel analyst at CSU Sacramento for fifteen and a half years and managed department budgets and projects for the provost during this time.

A celebration of Katzman’s eight years at East Bay took place on Aug. 18 in the Student Affairs building, room 4350.
