Leadership

President - Dr. Jose Aybar

Dr. Jose Aybar has demonstrated a results-oriented and collaborative management approach during his nearly twenty years of administrative and academic leadership at community colleges and government institutions across the country.    

Dr. Aybar currently serves as President of Richard J. Daley College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago, a position he has held since August 2009. During his tenure at the college, Dr. Aybar has made significant strides in improving student support services, enrollment, the registration process and quality assurance. He has helped develop and implement a major initiative at the campus to increase academic support to students in need of remediation through the innovative Developmental Education Initiative. In 2012, he was accepted into Harvard’s Seminar for Experienced Presidents, a division of Harvard’s Graduate School of Education Programs in Professional Education.       
 
Dr. Aybar has held a number of administrative positions at City Colleges of Chicago since 2003 and was the first to receive the District award for Administrator of the Year as Associate Vice Chancellor for Arts and Science. In that position, he represented the Chief Academic Officer of the District and developed programs to address quality, uniformity, staff development and credentials.    

Prior to the City Colleges of Chicago, he held management positions at Colorado Mountain College, the James F. Byrnes International Center in South Carolina and the Latin American and Caribbean Basin Scholarship Program for the State of Florida. While working for the state of Florida, President Aybar developed and implemented plans to place economically disadvantaged students from Latin America and the Caribbean in the higher education system.
       
Dr. Aybar graduated from Shimer College in Chicago, received his M.A. from Monterey Institute of Foreign Studies in California and his Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate School.
