Our CCSF Board of Trustees has named Mark Rocha as the leading candidate for permanent chancellor of our college.
Some are saying that hiring Rocha is a calculated risk, and that he’s the only candidate with experience. It’s not a calculated risk to hire Mark Rocha, it’s a guaranteed disaster. His record makes it clear that he stirs up trouble wherever he goes
, and is no friend to students, faculty or staff.
The board can and should hire an interim chancellor while they put in the work to find a candidate for the chancellor position that we can trust.
If you’ve been following the issue, you may have already heard about the vote of no confidence
by the Academic Senate, Faculty and Associated Students at Pasadena City College. New information has emerged from a prior post where faculty initiated a vote of no confidence against Rocha at Rancho Santiago Community College. Apparently, Rocha served as the president there for just 9 months, when he “left for similar reasons as reported by the facult y at Pasadena City College.”
We’ve got to do everything we can to stop Rocha’s appointment as our permanent chancellor. And we need your help to stop this disaster in the making. Can you join us at the Board of Trustees meeting TODAY on Ocean campus in MUB 140? The meeting begins at 4:00 PM, with public comment starting shortly after that.
If you can’t come to the meeting, please email your concerns directly to the board members:
