Regina Stanback Stroud Announced as Choice for Peralta District Chancellor

30 September 2019

On September 24, 2019 the Peralta Community College District Board of Trustees announced Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud, former president of Skyline College, as their choice to be the next district Chancellor.

 
Dr. Stanback Stroud has more than 35 years of experience as an educator and leader. She served most recently as President of Skyline College in San Bruno CA from 2010 to 2019. Upon her retirement in July 2019 she was named President Emerita by the San Mateo County Community College District (SMCCCD) Board of Trustees. She is highly regarded for her expertise on student equity and diversity; education/industry collaboratives; economic empowerment and anti-poverty strategies; community workforce and economic development; and regional and state educational policy. As a faculty leader, Dr. Stanback Stroud served as the President of the State Academic Senate for California Community Colleges and served on the Academic Senate Executive Committee for five years. 
 
Julina Bonilla, Board of Trustees President, said, “Dr. Stanback Stroud’s reputation as an innovative force for student equity and diversity precedes her. Early in the search process when we talked about the type of Chancellor we wanted, we said we needed a strong administrator like Dr. Stanback Stroud. We’re absolutely thrilled she is willing to continue her career here at Peralta. We believe our faculty, staff, administration, and particularly our students will be well served by her thoughtful leadership.”
 
Stanback Stroud said “As an Oakland resident, I am home. This is my community.” She continued, “Peralta is a phenomenal district and there’s so much that is done well here. But it is no secret that there are some real challenges. I’ve read the FCMAT. We are coming to grips with some very real issues and we know what needs to be done. I am confident that with leadership, commitment, and political will we can steer the district to financial stability while we continue to provide affordable educational opportunities and a vibrant culture for the communities we serve.”
 

The selection is subject to contract agreement, background check, and formal appointment by the Trustees. You can read more about Dr. Stanback Stroud’s illustrious career here.

Chancellor Finalists Announced for Peralta Community College District

12 September 2019

The Board of Trustees of the Peralta Community College District today announced two finalists for the position of Chancellor of the District:  Dr. Bryan Reece, formerly President of Norco College and Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud, formerly president of Skyline College. Both will participate in public forums at all four of the Peralta colleges and the District office next week, as well as be interviewed by the full Board of Trustees the week following these forums. 

 

 “We’re pleased our national search has brought us these two eminently qualified leaders as the finalists for our next Chancellor.  We’re grateful to our Selection Committee for narrowing the pool of applicants to these two impressive executives – one of whom will take the helm at this critical moment for our District and help us usher in a new era of greater stability and public accountability,” stated Board President Julina Bonilla.

 

Expanding beyond its standard chancellor search process that includes only one public form, the Board has instead decided to conduct five forums for each candidate as means to ensure community input.  One forum will be held at each college and one at the District Office, all on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. 

 

 “The Board has an obligation to all of our district stakeholders – our students, faculty, community partners and the general public – to ensure they have an opportunity to meet these finalists and hear their philosophies on how they plan to lead.  We conducted similar open meetings during the development of the job description for the position and now we want to give our greater Peralta community the same opportunity to hear for themselves what each candidate has to offer,” said Board President Bonilla.

 

The forum schedule  is available here.  A brief bio for Dr. Reece is available here and a brief bio for Dr. Stanback Stroud is available here.  The Peralta District forums taking place on Wednesday morning September 18thfrom 8:30am to 11am will be broadcast live via Peralta’s YouTube channel, Peralta radio station KGPC 96.9 FM, and on Peralta TV (Comcast channel 27 in Alameda and Berkley, Comcast channel 28 in Oakland, Emeryville and Piedmont, and AT&T channel 99).

 

The Board plans to interview the finalists during the following week and hopes to make a decision soon thereafter.
