SSU Salazar President & Advancement Offices Renovation - Rohnert Park, California

Sonoma State University

Posted: June 1, 2022 | Projects

Salazar Hall is named for the late Los Angeles Times writer Ruben Salazar who wrote extensively about the Chicano community in East L.A. Salazar gave a voice to the community up until he was tragically killed during civic unrest. Today, the building houses classes and departments in a wide range of disciplines, including the Offices of the President, Strategic Communications, and Advancement on the 2nd floor of Salazar Hall.
