Erik Skinner, interim chancellor of California community college system

The governing board of California’s community colleges Wednesday announced the appointment of an acting chief to replace retiring Chancellor Jack Scott. The search for a permanent successor is underway.

Erik Skinner, who now serves as executive vice chancellor for programs, will take over for Scott when he leaves office Friday after serving for three years at the helm of the nation’s largest system of higher education.

In his current post, Skinner oversees academic affairs, student services, facilities planning, research and other programs for the 2.4 million-student, 112-campus system.

He has played key roles in several system-wide policy initiatives, including reforms aimed at improving student success and development of a new two-year degree intended to streamline transfers between community colleges and the California State University system.

“As executive vice chancellor, Erik has a great understanding of the day-to-day working of the office, but also shares in the vision of the agency, which is to provide a skilled workforce for the state,” Scott said in a statement. “I have every confidence in Erik’s ability to lead the chancellor’s office and system during this transition period.”
