Chancellor's Announcement: New Leadership at Peralta

Dear Peralta District Community,
I’m excited to provide an update on the   leadership changes announced at the end of February.
On July 1, we welcomed Greg Nelson as our new Chief Operating Officer and Abdul Pridgen as our new Interim Executive Director of Public Safety. Both have hit the ground running, bringing with them a wealth of experience and a fresh perspective. I appreciate the college presidents and their leadership teams facilitating our campus visits last week. Thank you to everyone who greeted us, helped with tours, and extended genuine goodwill. I’m incredibly proud of our colleges and the district service center, and it was a pleasure to share that pride with Greg and Abdul.
