Trustee Cy Gulassa Tapped To Serve California Community Colleges Board

9 February 2016

Cy-GulassaAt its regular meeting on January 26, 2016, the Board of Trustees for the Peralta Community College Districted nominated fellow Board member Cy Gulassa, Area 6, to serve on the California Community College Trustees (CCCT) Board of the Community College League of California (CCLC) for 2016.

Gulassa, a long-time advocate for California’s community colleges, has been a trustee at the Peralta Colleges since 2004. A graduate of UC Berkeley with a M.A. in English, Gulassa has taught at institutions such as Frostburg State University in Maryland and the Philadelphia College of Art, as well as teaching English at De Anza College for 30 years. He served as president of the Foothil-De Anza District Faculty Association for fifteen years and founded the Bay Faculty Association. He lectures on community college reform and governance issues and has published over 150 articles. In 1994, he was named Faculty Member of the Year and was honored by State Assembly and Senate resolutions, and a commendation from President Clinton. 

The CCCT Board helps make policy for the CCLC and advances public education with legislative and public support for community colleges. It provides education, information and help to California community college governing boards and supports community colleges throughout the state.

“It’s a pleasure to have the opportunity to play a role in CCCT’s coming of age,” said Gulassa. “CCCT is asserting itself and becoming a strong education partner in the state, meeting frequently with CEOs to develop joint initiatives and focusing on student equity and success programs.”

“CCCT is seeking wider membership on national trustee organizations and has won the right of trustees to serve on accreditation teams, a major step forward,” he added.
