Christian A. Osmeña, of Sacramento, has been vice chancellor for college finance and facilities planning at the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office since 2018. He was a policy fellow in the California Education Policy Fellowship Program from 2016 to 2017. Osmeña held several positions at the California Department of Finance from 2011 to 2018, including principal program budget analyst, budget analyst and legislative analyst. He served as deputy cabinet secretary in the Office of the Governor from 2010 to 2011, where he was assistant to the chief of staff from 2009 to 2010. Osmeña earned a Master of Public Administration degree in public administration from the University of Southern California.
“I am excited to continue to work with UC Hastings and support the hard work of its faculty, staff, and students,” says Osmeña. “As the law department of the University of California, UC Hastings has an important responsibility to define what professional education can look like over the next decade–providing access to those students for whom legal education has been out of reach, remaining sustainable in an uncertain fiscal environment, and responding creatively to the many challenges higher education will continue to face. I look forward to contributing to this big task as best I can.”
