Each week the LightHouse is coordinating a group of individuals to meet with their employed counterparts working for the Bay Area’s leading businesses and institutions.
Our next jobsite excursion will take place on Friday, March 9. Our meeting is with Gene Chelberg, the Associate Vice President of Student Affairs at San Francisco State University.
Gene received his undergraduate degree from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, where he helped establish the country’s first cultural center for disabled students. After graduating in 1992, Chelberg stayed on to become Assistant Director for Disability Services and later ran a program for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members of the university community.
Prior to becoming SFSU’s Associate Vice President of Student Affairs, Gene was the Director of SF State’s Disability Programs and Resource Center, where he led efforts to create accessible learning, working and living environments for SF State students with disabilities.
Gene also holds an executive master’s degree in management and disability services from the University of San Francisco, has consulted for the National Endowment for the Arts, and served as program chair for the 30th International Conference of the Association of Higher Education and Disability.
Please RSVP by Tuesday, March 6th, as space is limited.
