The Dr. Ted Martinez Jr NCCHC Leadership Fellows Program has moved to Arizona State University. Starting with the 2023 Fellows Class, Dr. Maria Harper Marinick, retired Chancellor of the Maricopa Community Colleges, has assumed leadership of the Fellows program. Dr. Harper Marinick graduated in the first NCCHC Leadership Fellows class (2003) and has been a presenter and mentor for several years, as well as, serving as President of the NCCHC Board of Directors. She knows firsthand the impact this program is having on community college/university leaders and our communities across our nation.  I cannot think of a better person to assume this critical role!  

It has been an absolute honor to lead this culturally-tailored program that has already impacted many Latina(o) community college educators. I will continue to support The Dr. Ted Martinez Jr NCCHC Leadership Fellows Program as a proud Board Emeritus. ¬°Adelante!
