“Dr. Hamerly has acquired a cadre of stellar experience in academia as well as private and corporate business that has prepared him well to lead and guide the college from a unique, dual perspective,” said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Graham Oberem. “In addition to his exceptional teaching abilities, his leadership efforts have focused on supporting student success academically and professionally.”
Over the course of his three-decade career in business, Hamerly developed a record of distinguished leadership, serving in executive positions at AOL Time-Warner, Netscape Communications and Pages Software. Hamerly also has ten years of corporate research experience, including time at the legendary Xerox Palo Alto Research Center.
In 2002, Hamerly joined Cal State San Marcos as an adjunct faculty member, teaching entrepreneurship, corporate venturing, customer analysis, management information systems and operations management. In 2007, he became the director of business community relations, overseeing the signature program Senior Experience, organizing events and mentoring students.
“I am humbled and honored to serve as dean,” said Hamerly. “I am excited about our college’s future and look forward to working with faculty, staff, students, alumni and community partners to advance our programs, while exploring new opportunities to maintain the college’s leadership position on-campus and in the region. I’ve enjoyed teaching and interacting with thousands of students in my ten years at CSUSM, as well as working with over 500 community partners, and look forward to this new challenge.”
Hamerly holds a B.S. degree from MIT, an M.S. from UC Berkeley and a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University.
Cal State San Marcos services 13,000 students in north San Diego and southwest Riverside counties. It is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
