My Top 3 Priorities

  • Rio Hondo has the lowest transfer rate in the region – 19%. This low performing rate is directly affecting our funding under the new State Funding Formula. Rio Hondo must increase the transfer rate to remain competitive and to get its fair share.
  • It takes Rio Hondo students four to six year to complete a degree while neighboring colleges are averaging two to three years. We must address this disparity.
  • Safety – We must create a safe and secured college campus. The recent “loaded gun” found on campus has sounded the alarm that we are not providing a safe environment for students and staff.
