Former HCC chancellor Erika Lacro has been nominated to become the next Hawai’i Vice President of Community Colleges.
Lacro had served as HCC’s chancellor from July 2012 to April 2019, becoming the fist woman to hold the executive position at that campus. Since June 1, 2019, she has served as the interim VPCC as a result of the retirement of Vice President John Morton. The Vice President’s main role is to regulate all internal services within UH’s seven community college campuses. These regulations include executive leaderships, school policies, resource allocations, and support service developments.
“Erika has proven herself to be a strong and successful leader with knowledge, experience and a deep lifelong commitment to Hawaii.” said UH President David Lassner. “She understands where we have been and brings her own vision for the success of our seven community colleges and their critical missions to provide affordable, quality, life-changing education to all our islands.”
