CCBC’s provost Joaquin Martinez selected for Aspen Rising Presidents Fellowship

Mar 23, 2023

Joaquin G. Martinez, Ph.D., CCBC’s provost and vice president of Academic and Student Affairs, is one of 35 leaders recently selected by the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program for the 2023-24 class of the Aspen Rising Presidents Fellowship. This prestigious program, delivered in collaboration with the Stanford Educational Leadership Initiative, prepares the next generation of community college presidents to transform institutions to achieve higher and more equitable levels of student success.

Aspen Presidential Fellows represent the next generation of college leadership: the incoming class is 74% women, and 60% are people of color. The fellows, selected through a competitive process, will work closely with highly accomplished community college presidents, Aspen leaders and Stanford University faculty over 10 months to learn from field-leading research, define and assess student success at their colleges and clarify their visions for excellent and equitable outcomes for students while in college and after they graduate.
