The Governing Board unanimously selected Neault, who was previously the vice-chancellor of Student Services at the San Diego Community College District. She will begin her new position in January.
Neault’s contract will be presented to the board in the December Governing Board meeting. This contract determines how long she will stay on as chancellor before the board has to renew her contract in order for her to stay on.
Neault has praised the district’s work toward inclusion, citing Grossmont’s intent to hire a new full-time professor of African-American Studies and Grossmont College President Dr. Nabil Abu-Ghazaleh’s leadership in diversity hiring.
