Anthony Hired as Associate Dean of CTE
Eric Anthony has been hired as associate dean for Career Technical Education. His appointment was approved at the June RCCD Board meeting.
For the past five years, Anthony has served as a program support technician for San Diego Community College District where he facilitated Perkins funded CTE transition programs; engaged high school and community college faculty and administrators to develop mechanisms for early college credit within high school and adult education CTE programs; and trained and supported high school teachers, counselors, and parents on process to receive college credits.
His efforts resulted in a 600 percent participation expansion among high school students who earned early college credit. He also advanced events to promote districtwide career education programs and expand engagement with local employers, including an annual Board of Trustees Industry Advisory Appreciation Event.
At MVC, Anthony will be responsible for coordinating and providing leadership for the day-to-day fiscal operation and oversight for District, College and regional grants, and categorical funds that support career and technical education.
"We are excited to have Mr. Anthony joining us from San Diego Community College District. His passion for community college students and career education make him a great addition to our team," Melody Graveen, Ed.D., dean of Instruction for Career & Tech Education, said.
Anthony holds a bachelor's degree in Film and Video from Pennsylvania State University and a master's degree in Urban and Regional Planning from California State University, Pomona. Prior to working for SDCCD, he worked for the University of California, Berkeley as the Classroom and Facilities coordinator; director of Business Development for the Los Angeles Business Council; and administrator of Operations & Planning at New Village Charter High in Los Angeles.
"I am very excited to begin this position with Moreno Valley College and support student success," Anthony said. "Despite a challenging year, opportunities lie ahead to strengthen partnerships with local businesses, expand jobs within CTE pathways, and prepare our students for resiliency. I also look forward to returning to an in-person workplace for the first time in over a year."
