Especially noteworthy, is that he expanded equity efforts and supported student success through the implementation of initiatives such as Alameda Promise, and The Brotherhood – A Men of Color Initiative.  President Gravenberg also co-authored the successful Community College Pathway application to the California State Bar.  College of Alameda was one of 24 California Community Colleges selected for this innovative initiative.

Of the appointment, Peralta Colleges Chancellor Dr. José M. Ortiz said, “I am pleased President Gravenberg has agreed to delay his retirement and continue to provide exceptional leadership as the College of Alameda prepares for accreditation, plans for major construction of new facilities, implements programs to meet the mandates of the Student Success Act, and to stay attentive to addressing the myriad of challenges that lay ahead.”
