On Sept. 27, the California Community College Board of Governors unanimously elected Dr. Brice W. Harris  as the 15th chancellor of the largest community college system in the country.

The former president of Fresno City College and 16-year chancellor of the Los Rios district, is now tasked with leading the Board of Governors by providing leadership, advocacy and support to the 112 community colleges in California.

Harris will have to figure out the best course to lead the colleges through these tough financial times. “He will ably represent community colleges in state government, and I predict great progress for California community colleges under his leadership,” said former chancellor Jack Scott, who retired earlier this month.

The new chancellor will officially take the helm Nov. 6, taking over for interim chancellor Erik Skinner.
