Cathleen Greiner, Ph.D. is the newest member of the CSUF Center for Entrepreneurship Board where she will help mold the strategic development of the Center during these historic times. Dr. Greiner brings with her a tremendous amount of leadership experience and will be a critical driving force pushing initiatives that will increase participation by underrepresented students at California Community Colleges in regional entrepreneurship and innovation programs spearheaded by the Center for Entrepreneurship at California State University, Fullerton.

Dr. Greiner is the Regional Director Employer Engagement, Business and Entrepreneurship for the Orange County Region of California Community Colleges. From her bio: “As an educator and product of a ranching background, I bring an entrepreneurial mindset, deep work ethic, problem-solving, data analysis and forward thinking skills to building networks and authentic employer-education engagement. The combination of practical application, strategic and innovative thinking and change management yields solutions that are community-building and enduring, linking education and business in service to a breadth of students in the community colleges across the OC region. Please take a moment to review, “The Dimensions of Defensibility: Human-Centered Design in an Automated Workplace,” by Dr. Wallace Walrod, Orange County Business Council.”

Dr. Greiner and the CSUF Center for Entrepreneurship have been collaborating for approximately two years on such activities as the Titan Fast Pitch and the Center looks forward to many more years of benefiting from her expertise and innovative spirit!
