SANTA FE, N.M. — Santa Fe Community College President Randy Grissom has announced he will retire.

Grissom said Wednesday he will step down from his position October 31. The 68-year-old has led the college as president since 2013.

Under Grissom’s leadership, the college has nearly doubled its graduation rate and forged a number of partnerships with four-year colleges and universities to offer bachelor and advanced degree programs.

The college also recently received support from Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center and Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The SFCC Governing Board will announce the process for selecting an interim president at a later date.
