During his more than seven-year tenure at California State University, Long Beach, Dr. Alexander was twice named the California State University Student Association (CSSA) “President of the Year,” which represents all 23 California State Universities and its over 440,000 students.

Prior to becoming president of California State University, Long Beach, Dr. Alexander was president of Murray State University in Kentucky (2001-2005) and was a faculty member at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, where he was the director of the graduate higher education program.

Dr. Alexander also has been asked to represent public higher education colleges and universities on numerous occasions to the United State Congress on issues of college affordability, student indebtedness, and institutional efficiency and effectiveness in efforts to address many of the growing challenges facing American higher education. Due to his national recognition and involvement on higher education issues, Dr. Alexander has served on numerous U.S. higher education and statewide organizational leadership boards where he remains very active.

Biographic Profile of The Chancellor

Chancellor Robert A. Barish, M.D., M.B.A., assumed leadership of the LSU Health Sciences Center at Shreveport in April 2009 following a distinguished 24-year career in academic medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center. It was in Maryland where he founded a nationally recognized emergency medicine program before rising to Vice Dean of Clinical Affairs at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

After earning his medical degree from New York Medical College in 1979, Dr. Barish interrupted his residency training for one year to help care for malaria victims and starving children in refugee camps in Cambodia and Somalia. Returning to the United States, he completed his internal medicine residency training and subsequently completed a second residency in emergency medicine. He became one of the youngest chiefs of emergency services at a university hospital in the nation.

Dr. Barish received his M.B.A. from Loyola College and B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. He is a member of Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, a Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians, a Fellow of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine, and is a Distinguished Eagle Scout and the recipient of numerous teaching awards. Following the 2005 devastation of Hurricane Katrina to the Gulf Coast, he helped lead a medical regiment dispatched by the State of Maryland that delivered emergency care to more than 6,000 hurricane victims in Jefferson Parish. A former lieutenant colonel and flight surgeon in the Maryland Air National Guard, Dr. Barish in 1992 was among a select group invited to become a NASA astronaut candidate at the Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The four faculty academic levels are, in the ascending order of their rank: Instructor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor.

Full-time academic personnel of the Health Sciences Center whose primary role is related to a clinical setting but who do not hold tenure at the rank indicated are designated by the word “Clinical” following their academic rank.

Full-time academic personnel of the Health Sciences Center whose primary role is related to a research setting but who do not hold tenure at the rank indicated are designated by the word “Research” following their academic rank.

Part-time academic personnel whose primary role is related to a clinical setting are designated by the word “Clinical” preceding their academic rank.
