Greg Gillespie chosen

as Chancellor of Ventura County Community College, California (USA) April 2017.

The Ventura County Community College District has taken a big step forward with the hiring of Greg Gillespie as its permanent chancellor.

Gillespie, president of Ventura College since 2013, knows the area and its politics, he has a proven track record and he’s extremely familiar with workforce needs in critical industries such as agribusiness, technology and transportation.

It’s easy to forget that with 31,000 students and community college campuses in Oxnard, Ventura and Moorpark, VCCCD is the largest institute of higher education in the Tri-Counties. It has been under interim leadership since 2015.

Gillespie is inheriting a system that is on the upswing. Ventura College Challenge scholarships and counterparts at other campuses are opening up the community college experience to new populations without the burden of heavy student debt. CSU Channel Islands, still in its second decade of operations, provides a path to bachelor’s degrees that did not exist 20 years ago.

Gillespie takes over on July 1 and he has plenty of time to get up to speed on his new job. He lives in Ventura, so the transition should be an easy one. Luskin, who has a private practice in psychology and who likes to write for professional journals, will be in Ventura County to offer informal advice.
