California Community Colleges Will Extend Chancellor’s Contract Through 2023

The California Community Colleges Board of Governors intends to extend the contract of the system’s chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley through 2023, the board said Tuesday.

Oakley’s four-year contract was due to end in December 2020, but the board has decided to give him another four-year contract beginning in December of this year.

“Chancellor Oakley has demonstrated the intellect, courage, creativity and heart needed to lead the California Community Colleges to continued success in the future,” board chairman Tom Epstein said in a statement. “We look forward to approving a new contract with the chancellor to send a message that our commitment to student achievement and equity will continue.”

The board plans to vote in July on the terms of the contract, which have not yet been negotiated.
