VP of Academic Affairs leaves Pierce

Vice President of Academic Affairs Sheri Berger announced through an email that she has accepted a similar role at Compton College and will leave Pierce in June.

Berger worked for the Los Angeles Community College District for 21 years.

She took her current position at Pierce on Sept. 2, 2014. Prior to that, she was the dean of Academic Affairs at Los Angeles Valley College.

She also served as acting president for a brief period, after former Pierce College President Kathleen Burke took a position as the chancellor of the South Orange County Community College District.

In her open email announcement, Berger wrote that while it was a difficult decision to make, she was excited to accept the offer. She said she will remember her time at Pierce.

“As I move on to this next phase of my career, I will look back at my time here with fond memories, and appreciating all I have learned and the relationships I have made,” Berger wrote.

Berger said June 9 will be her last official day at Pierce.
