Moore Assumes Office of
L.A. City College Interim President

The Board of Trustees for the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) today announced an interim presidential appointment for Los Angeles City College. Dr. Jamillah Moore, former Chief Deputy at the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, will assume the office in late September and occupy the position during a one-year presidential selection process.

“We are really excited to have Dr. Moore come to the college,” Board President Sylvia Scott Hayes said. “She has a wealth of experience – both the educational and political knowledge needed to help transition the college in preparation for a new president.”

Moore replaces Dr. Steve Maradian at LA City College. In 2005, she led the state recovery team for one year as the Interim President of Compton Community College, working to sustain educational opportunities for the students in that community. As Chief Deputy and Senior Vice Chancellor of External and Governmental Relations for the California Community Colleges, Moore advised the state Chancellor and executive Vice Chancellor on legislative positions at both the state and federal levels.

She also directed legislative analysis on all community college related legislation and supervised the government relations, external affairs, equal employment opportunity and public information personnel in the Chancellor’s office.

Since leaving that post in January, Moore served as the director of legislative and community college services for School Services of California, providing information regarding legislative issues that affect community colleges and K through 12 education.

“As community colleges are the doorway to economic opportunity, I am looking forward to working with the quality faculty and staff of Los Angeles City College in serving adults of all ages.”

Founded in 1929, Los Angeles City College transfers hundreds of students to competitive universities each year, is home to the number one Math team in the nation and has received 10 state Journalism awards. Career programs include health care, computer science, graphics, television production and more. Many students qualify for fee waivers.
