The chancellor of the California Community Colleges is being replaced with an acting chancellor while the previous chancellor is retiring.

Erik Skinner is embracing the new role of acting chancellor until he is no longer needed. Before becoming interim chancellor, Skinner’s role was deputy chancellor.

The press release from the official CCC website was put out through email on March 21, 2016. It is clear the Board of Governors are still looking for a permanent chancellor.

Previous chancellor, Brice Harris, is now chancellor emeritus in honor of his career. Harris served as chancellor to the Los Rios Community College District in the Sacramento area for 16 years. He was chancellor of the San Mateo Community College District beginning in Sept. 2012.

Back in 2013, Erik Skinner was promoted to serve as deputy vice chancellor for the chancellor’s office. As the stand-in chancellor, he oversees programs such as: Academic Affairs, Student Services and Special Programs, Economic Development and Workforce Preparation, and College Finance and Facilities Planning.

The chancellor’s job, according to the CCC Chancellor’s Office:

“Include[s] general responsibility for leadership and coordination, as well as specific functions such as serving as the fiscal agent for appointment of state funds, approving educational programs proposed by the colleges, and reviewing plans for construction projects. The Chancellor’s Office also provides services to the colleges such as maintaining a comprehensive information system; coordinating, following and sponsoring legislation; and providing assistance in the areas of student, program and fiscal services.”

According to edsource.org, the Board of Governors are expected to find a permanent replacement by the 2016-2017 school year.
