Pasadena City College selects Mark Rocha as its new president

 
Pasadena Star-News
 
June 10, 2010
 
The Pasadena City College Board of Trustees announced Mark Rocha as its new college president Wednesday replacing interim president Lisa Sugimoto.

Rocha is currently the president of West Los Angeles College and will begin his term at PCC on July 1.

"It's a dream come true," Rocha said. "I am so pleased and I can't wait to get to work."

Wednesday night's announcement came with platitudes about Rocha from board members.

"We're highly impressed with Dr. Rocha's collegial teamwork approach at West Los Angeles College that resulted in great progress in the areas of enrollment, budget and external grants and fundraising," said board president Hilary Bradbury-Huang about Rocha.

PCC board member Bill Thomson said the hiring process, which narrowed down to two candidates from a field of nearly 90, was filled with quality applicants. He was confident PCC made a good choice.

"We felt we had two very qualified people to choose from," he said. "We're confident that Dr. Rocha can come in and work with the staff."

While board members exuded confidence in their pick, some of the faculty were cold to the announcement of the new president.

"I'm neither happy nor unhappy," said Roger Marheine, president of PCC Faculty Association. "This was a decision made by the board despite a tremendous amount of opposition by faculty and staff."
