California Community College System Names Student Success Champion and First Latino Chancellor


Today, in a historic move, the California Community Colleges Board of Governors chose Eloy Ortiz Oakley to become the system’s next Chancellor. Oakley will be the first Latino to serve as Chancellor of a system that serves over 2.3 million students, 42% of whom are Latino.

“Eloy is a trailblazer,” said Campaign for College Opportunity President Michele Siqueiros, “He has been a statewide leader in improving community college student outcomes and closing equity gaps in those outcomes for underrepresented and low income students. Oakley is also a nationally recognized leader who brings a wealth of experience, a gift for building partnerships, a laser focus on equity, and a remarkable student-centered vision that will help ensure that significantly more California community colleges students realize their college dreams.”
