Subject: Announcement of New Chancellor
I am pleased to name Dr. Arthur Q. Tyler as the new Chancellor for City College of San Francisco.
Dr. Tyler has experience leading community colleges in Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Houston. This leadership experience combined with his expertise in fiscal and accreditation matters, makes him uniquely qualified to lead City College.
Tyler most recently served as deputy chancellor and chief operating officer of the Houston Community College System, which operates six community colleges and serves more than 72,000 students in the greater Houston area. He also has a decade of experience serving California community colleges. Tyler served as president of Sacramento City College from 2005 to 2007; was the special trustee tasked to oversee the Compton Community College District from 2004 to 2005; and served as vice president of administration of budget and management for Los Angeles City College from 1997 to 2004.
I couldn’t be more pleased to have him on board. He will bring additional energy, focus, and expertise. Dr. Tyler will join us on November 1st.
