The Chancellor's Circle

Members of the Los Rios Chancellor’s Circle are among the Sacramento Region’s most influential business and civic leaders and serve as an invaluable resource to the Los Rios Chancellor through annual investments and active participation. They share the Los Rios vision for higher education – an unparalleled combination of academic excellence and commitment to the social, economic, cultural and environmental vitality of our region.

Benefits of Membership

Contributions from Chancellor’s Circle members are pooled to create a student success and innovation fund that is of sufficient size to effect meaningful change. Each year, the Chancellor will consult with Circle Members to determine the best way to spend the fund to improve student access and student success in the Los Rios Colleges and Centers across the region.

In addition to effecting meaningful change at the Los Rios colleges, members receive special communications and event invitations throughout the year.
