Malveaux will take the helm of this unique college, which focuses on an interdisciplinary analysis of the histories, cultures and social experiences of people of color, as debates over racial injustices and pedagogy make headlines.
"Learning about people of color, learning about marginalized people, learning the whole of American history is as important as learning quantum physics or English literature," said Malveaux, who is president emerita of Bennett College in North Carolina.
As a feminist and labor economist, Malveaux has focused on issues such as women in the workforce, the impact of racial wealth inequities on economic productivity and the implications of government policies on workers' health on the job.
Cal State LA President William A. Covino said Malveaux's long and accomplished record in academia and her history of advocacy will serve her well in her new role as dean of the college.
"I look forward to the work that the college will do and the collaborations that will emerge under Dr. Malveaux's leadership," Covino said. "This is a significant appointment for the college, but also for the city and the nation."

The College of Ethnic Studies is home to the Department of Asian and Asian American Studies, the Department of Chicana(o) and Latina(o) Studies and the Department of Pan-African Studies. The college's inaugural year coincided with a global pandemic that shone a light on racial disparities; the murder of George Floyd, which pushed the nation's history of racial injustices to the forefront; police shootings of Black people; violence against members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community; and the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The college aims to develop leaders "who will engage in rigorous, self-reflexive study that motivates critical engagement, self-determination and decolonial understandings of the world."
"Like my ethnic studies colleagues, I feel that we are really fortunate to have recruited such a distinguished leader as our inaugural dean," said Professor Jun Xing, who serves as chair of the Department of Asian and Asian American Studies. "Dr. Malveaux's rich experience, national stature and leadership vision will for sure help raise the new college's profile and make it into a local, national and international center of excellence in the field of ethnic studies."
