Greg Gillepsie is the new president of Ventura College.
Gillepsie, who officially takes the top post at the school this summer pending final contract negotiations, has more than 19 years of experience in the community college system. He’s served as a faculty member, director, dean and vice president at four different community colleges in both rural and urban settings. Currently, Gillepsie is vice president for instruction and student services at Yavapai College in Prescott, Ariz.
Ventura College’s outgoing president is Robin Calote, who is retiring at the end of June.
“I am pleased Dr. Gillespie will be joining us at the District and leading Ventura College,” Jamillah Moore, chancellor of the Ventura County Community College District, said in a news release. “He is a visionary leader with broad experience and has a unique understanding of the challenges facing students and faculty in the community college system of California.”
