President Katrina Rogers of Fielding Graduate University welcomed new Santa Barbara City College President Anthony Beebe to the community Thursday evening at a reception at her home, Fielding’s McCune House in the Santa Barbara foothills.

Dr. Beebe, who became president of City College on July 1st of this year, is currently a doctoral student in Fielding’s School of Leadership Studies.

“Fielding’s PhD program in Human and Organizational Development has been perfect for me as a practitioner-scholar,” he said. “My dissertation focuses on participatory governance in California’s community colleges, which is directly applicable to my work.

"I’m thrilled to be the new superintendent/president of Santa Barbara City College and look forward to finding ways we can build stronger connections to Fielding.”

About 50 guests from the local educational community attended the reception including UCSB Chancellor Henry Yang; Cary Matsuoka, new superintendent for the Santa Barbara School District; William Flores, new president of Antioch University’s Santa Barbara campus; Bernie Luskin, chancellor of Ventura County Community College District; Otto Lee, Fielding trustee and president of Los Angeles Harbor College; Candace Winkler, president and CEO of the Santa Barbara Scholarship Foundation; Kevin Walthers, president of Allan Hancock College; and Luz Reyes-Martin, Goleta Union School District trustee; as well as Santa Barbara City Council member Frank Hotchkiss.

“Selecting Dr. Anthony Beebe to serve as president of Santa Barbara City College continues a long tradition of excellent leadership for an educational jewel in our community,” said Dr. Rogers.

“We are excited to have him serve as a leader in Santa Barbara.”

Dr. Beebe, who has an EdD from Oregon State University and most recently served as president of San Diego City College, said that Dr. Rogers has been “an absolute role model” to him in his educational career.

As a student at Fielding, he had an “a-ha!” moment when she gave a talk about the link between social justice and education.

“You have no idea the influence you’ve had on me,” he said.

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!
