Drexel University Sacramento’s Michael Marion Appointed to California Student Aid Commission

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Michael Marion, Executive Director and Associate Vice Provost of Drexel University Sacramento, was recently appointed to the California Student Aid Commission, where he will support the mission to make higher education more accessible for California students.

Appointments to the Commission are made by California Governor Jerry Brown and the position requires State Senate confirmation. As a commissioner, Marion will represent private and secondary education schools. He’ll attend his first Commission meeting in November.

“It’s a huge honor to be considered by Governor Brown for this role and be able to join some of the outstanding individuals who are already serving as commissioners,” Marion said. “This is a great opportunity to give back to students to make sure they can access financial aid and have the opportunity to be successful in college.”
