Incoming president interviewed by SF New Mexican
The Santa Fe New Mexican’s education reporter Dillon Mullen interviewed incoming president Rebecca K. “Becky” Rowley, Ph.D. In the story, Rowley said, “The job at Santa Fe Community College provides greater opportunity to affect community colleges statewide.” The reporter wrote, “Part of Rowley’s new community is the Roundhouse, where she will be a leading voice in advocating for legislation that will affect community colleges statewide. Since 2015, she has been president of New Mexico Independent Community Colleges, a network of 10 community colleges.”
Another highlight from the story: “Over eight years with Rowley as president, Clovis Community College’s persistence rate, which measures the percentage of students who return for a second year, has improved from 34 percent to 84 percent, according to data from the college.”
