Nationwide Search Leads To Hiring Of Current Interim President

A South Coast college has a new president who’s already a familiar face on the campus. Dr. Julius Sokenu has been selected as Moorpark College’s new president.

He’s been with the college for 14 years, and has been its interim president since 2019. Sokenu has been a community college educator for nearly three decades, and joined Moorpark College as a dean in 2007.

He was selected for the post by the Ventura County Community College District’s Board of Trustees following a nationwide search. The decision still has to go through the formality of contract approval.
