Faculty Profile

Paul D. Hastings
Interim Dean, Professor of Psychology

In the rapidly changing society of California, with new technologies, growing diversity, and considerable challenges around income and access to opportunity, education stands as a critically important field for addressing the breadth of our state’s needs and providing the best chances for our children, youth and adults to thrive.
