Hi Hyla,

Today was absolutely gorgeous! Chilly in the morning with a little bit of fog to a bright blue sky full of puffy white clouds. But alas, this is Southern Oregon - KDRV says it will snow down to 500' by Tuesday... So are we supposed to move our entire wardrobe into our cars?

Be well,

RCC Update

Prior to beginning his presidency at Rogue Community College in July 2022, Randy Weber, Ed.D. served as the Executive Vice President/Chief Student Success and Strategy Officer at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. Working at the college between 2015 and 2022, he also rose to become the JCCC board representative for the League for Innovation in the Community College.

President Weber is an alum of the well-respected Aspen Presidential Fellowship Program for Community College Excellence, and received his Doctorate in Education from Baker University in Overland Park, Kansas. He holds both a master’s and bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas and began his education by completing his Associate of Science degree with Barton County Community College in Great Bend, Kansas.

As a first-generation community college graduate, President Weber places high importance on the commitment to access and completion for all students. He leads collaborative initiatives with other college stakeholders resulting in removed barriers at entry, improved student success rates, and increased student satisfaction and persistence. His focus on tackling key issues by including faculty and staff is often referenced as a strength.

President Weber and his wife, Sasha, enjoy mountain and beach hikes with their dog throughout the Rogue Valley and along the Oregon coast. Their adult son lives and works in the city of Denver. They are excited to finally call Southern Oregon, a region they’ve admired for years, their home.
