Peter Quigley, associate vice president of academic affairs for the University of Hawaii Community College system is one of three candidates for the President of the Santa Rosa Junior College.
SRJC’s new President will lead a large institution of approximately 33,500 students each semester – approximately 51,000 students annually – on two beautiful main campuses, several centers and many dozens of sites across Sonoma County with an annual budget of approximately $118 million for 2010-11 and faculty and staff totaling almost 3,000 employees. With such a large portion of Sonoma County students choosing to attend SRJC and an involved cadre of alumni who enthusiastically support the College, SRJC benefits greatly from significant community support and involvement. In a very real sense, SRJC truly belongs to the people of Sonoma County. With the majority of our citizens voting for the passage of bond Measure A in 2002, the College has experienced a period of unprecedented expansion. The Petaluma Campus was completed with the addition of seven new buildings, including classrooms, a performance venue, and library. Using the College’s original heritage architecture, a new library, student center, and parking structure have been recently built on the Santa Rosa Campus and construction for a culinary arts center is in process.
