He co-founded and is currently coordinator of the new Critical Pacific Islands & Oceania Studies Program and teaches in the Diversity & Social Justice program. At the same time, the chancellor Mark Rocha and his rubber stamp Board Of Trustees have made massive cuts in classes, allowed bathrooms to be out of order for months and are also supporting the privatization of the  Balboa reservoir to hand it over to a Avalon a for profit developer. They are also pushing an $800 million dollar bond initiative to rebuilding nearly the entire college. The Performing Arts Education Center PAEC which was supposed to have been built has been put on hold and the adminstration us illegally spending the money on other development projects and consultants and cronies. They spent $85,000 on a model of their new bond proposal despite the fact their plans leave out the PAEC center.Students, faculty and counselors who have been terminated talked about the destruction of the college by Rocha.Many of the students and faculty talked about the hypocrisy of the Chancellor and board who pretend that they support these communities represented by the Ethnic Studies program.
