FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Former Fresno State President and CSU Chancellor Joseph Castro is preparing to head back to the classroom at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
Castro resigned from the chancellorship last year following accusations over how he handled sexual harassment allegations. The complaints involved Fresno State Vice President for Student Affairs Frank Lamas.
