SBCCD is governed by a Board of Trustees and led by Interim Chancellor Jose F. Torres in conjunction with a diverse and passionate senior administration team. The Chancellor's Cabinet provides leadership and counsel to help ensure SBCCD continues opening doors of higher education and opportunity for all.
Jose F. Torres
Jose F. Torres was appointed Interim Chancellor of the San Bernardino Community College District by the Board of Trustees on December 2019. Interim Chancellor Torres's upbringing mirrors the diversity of SBCCD's student population. Born in Guanajuato, Mexico, he is the son of a laborer and a housemaid and the youngest of 11 siblings. He left his hometown in search of the American Dream and took the lessons of his family within him — humility, hard work, and optimism. Torres enrolled at Mt. San Antonio College and became the first in his family to pursue a college degree. With the support of teachers, counselors, and his wife Ati, Torres navigated the community college system and transferred to Cal Poly Pomona, where he earned a bachelor's in business administration and accounting and subsequently earned his master’s in public administration from Cal State San Bernardino.
Driven by his desire to open doors of opportunity for others, Torres has dedicated his career working on expanding access to affordable housing and higher education. Before joining the San Bernardino Community College District, he served for nearly a decade as vice president of finance at the Housing Authority of the County of San Bernardino. Today, Torres oversees SBCCD's $200 million operating budget and ensures students – regardless of who they are or where they come from – have the opportunity to achieve their potential. Torres and his wife Ati live in San Bernardino County, and he considers being a father one of the most important roles of his life. On weekends, he enjoys coaching and cheering on his daughter Nayah's soccer team.
