The new president of Cal State Dominguez Hills says his immediate goals will be to boost enrollment at the Carson school and strengthen its ties to the nearly two dozen communities it serves. "The immediate goal is to create an enrollment management plan I feel comfortable with," Robert C. Detweiler said Tuesday after his appointment was announced. "I personally have the strong sense we must grow to serve the interests of the community," he added. Detweiler, a 21-year veteran of the California State University system and vice president for academic affairs at Cal State San Bernardino, beat out four other finalists for the job. The five, all men, were selected from 134 applicants.
