Santa Fe New Mexican - - LEARNING -

Sharon Lalla, who over­sees aca­demic and vo­ca­tional de­part­ments at Luna Com­mu­nity Col­lege, has been ap­pointed act­ing pres­i­dent while a search to fill the po­si­tion per­ma­nently nears its con­clu­sion, the col­lege an­nounced last week.

Lalla will take on the ad­di­tional du­ties start­ing Mon­day. She came to Luna af­ter time as a fac­ulty mem­ber and ad­min­is­tra­tor at New Mex­ico State Univer­sity, and has served as vice pres­i­dent for in­struc­tion at Luna since July 2016.

“My cur­rent vi­sion is a six-week vi­sion,” Lalla said, al­lud­ing to Luna’s ef­fort to se­cure its ac­cred­i­ta­tion with the Higher Learn­ing Com­mis­sion. “We want to be as trans­par­ent and as in­for­ma­tive as pos­si­ble across cam­pus and in the com­mu­nity. … We will have a lot of col­lab­o­ra­tion.”
