The West Hills Community College District will welcome a new administrator this month with the arrival of Rita Grogan, who will serve as the district’s Associate Vice Chancellor of Enrollment Management and Institutional Effectiveness.

 Grogan—who was previously employed as the Director of Student Enrollment and Financial Services for Mission College in Santa Clara, California—brings with her a wide range of skills and an interest in and focus on student success.

 “I'm looking forward to being part of an innovative and creative team of individuals who want to expand student possibilities with technology, design class schedules and formats that will work for today's student needs, all while providing excellent customer service,” she said. “I want to be able to say that I played some small part in helping West Hills be recognized for continuous improvement toward student success.”
Grogan has also served as Mission College’s Interim Director of Instructional Technology Services and Director of Financial Aid.

 She is currently earning an Education Doctorate through Brandman University and holds a Master of Arts in Education Administration from Santa Clara University.

 She is active in many professional organizations and is the current president-elect of the California Association of Community College Registrars and Admissions Officers.

 She started in the position officially on July 20.

 “My initial plan is to meet and learn from the West Hills' community and I hope to add my experience and knowledge as we head into the next decade,” she said.
