My Story

Debby De Angelis has been the Director of Athletics at Cal State East Bay in Hayward since 2001, the first woman to hold that position. In that time she led the University's transition from a Division III to Division II athletics program that serves hundreds of student-athletes in 15 sports. Debby started her sports career as a competitive rower and rowing coach, and was a member of the 1975 USA women's rowing team that competed at the World Championships. Her dedication to collegiate athletics and student-athletes extends beyond sports - she has been described as a role model in local, regional and national athletic administration.
