Los Angeles Community College District Chancellor Francisco Rodriguez and LACCD Board of Trustees are pleased to announce that Los Angeles Harbor College faculty, Adrienne Brown, has been appointed by Governor Gavin Newsom to the California Community Colleges Board of Governors.
“We are pleased with the Governor’s appointment of Adrienne Brown. Over the course of her career, she has been a powerful voice to champion student equity and access,” said Chancellor Rodriguez. “Her transformative role on this Board will enable community colleges to advance and better serve the needs of our colleges and students.”
“I am most energized by work that supports equity for both students and faculty and am thrilled to represent the CCC faculty voice as one of the two faculty seats on the Board of Governors,” said Brown. “This shift to an equity lens to better understand and remove the systemic barriers students face would not be possible without the Board of Governor’s continued consultation and guidance on state policy decisions.”
“Brown’s clear leadership and experience with diversity, inclusive and equitable learning will provide an impactful voice to our students with this appointment,” said LACCD Board President David Vela. “With Brown’s guidance, she will ensure this work continues statewide to increase equity and student success across our district and beyond.”
