Claire Oliveros Named the Thirteenth President of Riverside City College in California

Claire Oliveros was appointed the thirteenth president of Riverside City College in California. Dr. Oliveros has been serving as the vice president of institutional equity and research and planning at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento.

Riverside City College enrolls nearly 18,000 students, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Education. Women make up 61 percent of the student body.

“Within each role I have led and championed equity-minded practices and embedded equity into policies, practices, and procedures in support of teaching and learning, student services, and college resources. Moreover, I understand the lived experiences of first-generation students entering, adjusting, and succeeding in higher education due in large part to my own journey in higher education,” Dr. Oliveros said.

Before relocating to California, Dr. Oliveros was the assistant provost for student success initiatives at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and the executive dean of student development and learning resources at Chemeketa Community College in Salem, Oregon.

A first-generation college student, Dr. Oliverso holds a bachelor’s degree in speech communication from Western Oregon University.
