- Cecilia P. Burciaga (1945-2013) was a leader in civil rights and higher education who inspired generations of Latino students during a long career as a high-ranking administrator at Stanford and at California State University-Monterey Bay. Born in Pomona, Burciaga earned a bachelor's degree in Spanish, English and linguistics from California State University-Fullerton in 1967 and a secondary teaching credential in 1968. She earned a master's degree in policy studies in education from the University of California-Riverside in 1972. Before arriving at Stanford, she was a social science research analyst for the U.S. Civil Rights Commission in Washington, D.C. Burciaga arrived at Stanford in the summer of 1974 to become assistant to the president and provost for Chicano affairs under the late Stanford President Richard W. Lyman. Burciaga and her late husband, artist and writer José Antonio "Tony" Burciaga, served for 10 years as resident fellows at Casa Zapata, the Chicano-theme dorm. During her 20-year career at Stanford, Burciaga held many posts, including Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Research, Director of summer session and Assistant Provost for Faculty Affairs. In 1994, Burciaga became a founding dean of California State University-Monterey Bay. She first worked in the Office of the President and later as the Associate Vice President of Student Affairs.
