Mike Combs in the News


Mike Combs was born in Oklahoma City, but was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.

After graduating high school, he attended College of Marin where he played football and received an AA. He also attended San Francisco State University receiving a BA in Economics, and Colorado State University where he received a BS in Farm and Ranch Management. In the mid 90’s, he attended a Museum Studies Masters program where he completed all the course work except the dissertation.

Mike has worked as a Merchant Marine and a Park Ranger at Fort Point and Alcatraz. He has also been an Archivist for the National Parks Service and have done volunteer work for the Western Aerospace Museum where he gave presentations about the first African American pilot of 1917. He have also given presentations about the history of Crissy Fields Aviation.

Mike has worked at Mail Services since 1985 except for a leave of absence to work for the National Park Services. In 2007, he became a Senior Mail Processor and assumed the duties of a work leader. In 2008 he joined the Chancellor’s Staff Advisory Committee and the Berkeley Initiative for Leadership in Diversity (BILD) Steering Committee. Being on these committees has given him a better understanding of how the University works and a greater appreciation of the diversity on campus.

Mike has been married for 26 years and has three daughters; the oldest two graduated from California State University at Fullerton and UC Santa Cruz.
