Meet the Mendocino-Lake Community College District's Next Superintendent

The Mendocino-Lake Community College District will welcome a new superintendent on July 13. College of Alameda President Dr. Tim Karas was appointed to the position by the Board of Trustees last week.

Karas has held his current post since 2016 and was previously vice-president of instruction. He has worked as dean of liberal studies and language arts at Mission College and was once a tenured faculty member at College of San Mateo.

Karas holds an Associate Degree from West Valley College, a Bachelor of Arts in Geography from Humboldt State University, a Masters in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University, and completed his doctoral studies in educational leadership at Fielding Graduate University in 2017. He was the first member of his family to go to college.

“I could not be more honored, excited and exceptionally proud to be named the superintendent/president of Mendocino-Lake Community College District,” Karas said. “I am immensely grateful for and sincerely humbled by the confidence and trust that the search committee and the Board of Trustees has demonstrated in me.”
