New Team Members

The Office of Public Affairs is proud to welcome two temporary hires who have proven themselves highly capable in a short amount of time.

Justin Velasco, a former reporter from the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, has stepped in to manage media relations and social media. He covers STEM, science, agriculture, business, environmental design and engineering for the university. He can be reached at or (909) 869-4205.

Dan Lee, a former reporter from the Riverside Press Enterprise, is leading internal communication and media relations. He covers letters and arts, events, education, hospitality management, student affairs and general administration for the university. He can be reached at or (909) 869-3501.

The hires are due to staffing changes to Public Affairs. In September, Associate Vice President Ron Fremont left Cal Poly Pomona to join Cal State San Bernardino as its vice president of university advancement. In addition, senior communications coordinator Esther Chou Tanaka has taken a leave through March 25.
