City College Dean Named to Post With Chancellor’s Office

Santa Barbara City College is has announced that Alice Perez, current dean of Educational Programs, has been appointed to the position of vice chancellor of Academic Affairs with the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office.

The position is pending approval by the SBCC Board of Trustees and California Community Colleges Board of Governors. Perez is expected to join the chancellor’s office in mid-November.

In her new role, Perez will provide leadership and oversight of the Academic Affairs Division responsible for conducting state-level review of community college curriculum and instructional support activities.

Perez joined SBCC as the dean of Arts & Humanities in 2006.

“It is not possible for me to fully express how much I cherish and appreciate my colleagues and our students at SBCC," Perez said. "The past 11 years have deeply transformed my life both personally and professionally.

"I will work hard for our students and our powerful community college districts, and I look forward to forging new collaborations with my colleagues at the Chancellor's Office and across the state, while sustaining strong bonds with my current colleagues at the college.”

Anthony E. Beebe, SBCC superintendent/president, said, “We are proud to have one of our own taking a leadership position at the statewide level.”

City College will be seeking internal applicants to fill the interim dean of Educational Programs position for the remainder of the fiscal year.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
