CAMPUS PRESIDENT SPOTLIGHT Tracy West comes to us at our San Bernardino campus with 14 years of education experience, ranging from adjunct instructor to lead instructor and program director. She has held roles such as program dean, associate dean, campus director for several locations and now Campus President. She holds a Ph.D. from Walden University in management, leadership and organizational change. "Higher education is my passion because of all the great people who nurtured me. I want to give back to others just the same," she said. Prior to getting into education, Tracy's career was in management, leading specialty retail and big box stores for about 20 years. These diverse experiences have helped lead to a well-rounded leadership style. "From the moment I heard about the opportunity (at Concorde), I was intrigued by the possibility of health care since my career in education has mostly been in business, management, and technology," she explained. "It's exhilarating to lead a team of people who respond to the culture changes and the building of a new team. Every day is different, and the students' response has affirmed my reasons for choosing Concorde, to help change lives."
