New CCSF chancellor vows to help college heal

On the 100th day of Robert Agrella’s reign as City College of San Francisco’s special trustee, administrators touted achievements in their “road map” to keeping the school open — among them hiring Arthur Tyler as permanent chancellor.

“Naming Dr. Tyler as the permanent chancellor is one of the most important decisions I have made or will make as CCSF’s special trustee,” Agrella said Wednesday.

Tyler, who will be paid $285,000 annually and take over Nov. 1, vowed to help heal an “iconic institution” that has lost its way. He most recently was deputy chancellor and chief operating officer of the Houston Community College System, and previously was special trustee of Compton Community College when in 2005 it learned it would lose accreditation.

Hydra Mendoza, vice president of the Board of Education and Mayor Ed Lee’s top education adviser, told Tyler that The City is “here to hold you accountable. Our expectations are high because the impact of the consequences are great.”

California Community Colleges Chancellor Brice Harris touted Agrella’s work at CCSF, particularly in hiring Tyler, a new chief financial officer, and a number of payroll and auditing positions.accreditationArthur TylerBay Area NewsCCSFeducation
