Mt. SAC’s own William “Bill” Rawlings has been reappointed to the California Community Colleges Board of Governors, a position he has held since 2018.

Rawlings was reappointed by Gov. Gavin Newsom and has worked at the college since 1999 as a Computer Facilities Coordinator in the Academic Technology & Infrastructure Department.

“I am so grateful for the support of our Mt. SAC family as I continue this work: pursuing equitable outcomes and opportunity for all students,” he says.

Rawlings is also a member of the Diamond Bar Planning Commission and chairs the California SchoolCCC logo Employees Association’s Community College Committee which researches, educates and communicates with members on the issues and concerns of community college employees. Rawlings has previously represented CSEA on the California Community Colleges Telecommunications and Technology Advisory Committee, Legislative Program Task Force, and the Budget and Legislative Advisory Committee. 

Rawlings also currently serves as Vice President of the Board of Directors for the Watchmen Arts Association, a non-profit corporation that provides performing arts education and experiences to youth from throughout Southern California.

The Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges sets policy and provides guidance for the 73 districts and 116 colleges that constitute the system. Board members are appointed by the governor and formally interact with state and federal officials and other state organizations. The Board of Governors works through a consultation process to ensure representatives from all levels of the system have an opportunity to advise the chancellor on state policy decisions.
