An Appointment under Scrutiny
Pluviose, David
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v23 n15 p36-39 Sep 2006
There is a new chief in charge at Georgia Perimeter College (GPC), the five-campus, 50,000-student Atlanta-area community college district. Dr. Anthony S. Tricoli, the former president of West Hills College Coalinga, will take over at GPC on Oct. 1, replacing longtime president Jacqueline Belcher, who retired last year. The appointment of Tricoli to lead GPC has raised eyebrows, especially because he's coming from a rural California school, part of a two-campus district, that only serves about 5,000 students. He is coming from a Hispanic-Serving Institution, but some have questioned whether he has the experience and ability to lead one of America's largest and most diverse urban community college districts. University System of Georgia Chief of Staff Rob Watts, says Tricoli's blend of talents make him the right man for GPC, but there are those who wonder why a qualified minority candidate was not selected in his stead.
