San Diego Mesa College Honors Its Former President Constance Carroll

Constance M. Carroll, the chancellor of the San Diego Community College District, is receiving recognition for her service to the district by having the Humanities Institute on the campus of San Diego Mesa College named in her honor.

“We wanted to honor Dr. Carroll’s vision and commitment to the humanities, both as our past president and as our chancellor, so it seemed most fitting to bestow her name permanently upon this program,” said Pamela Luster, president of Mesa College.

Since its founding in 1990, the Humanities Institute has supported the work of faculty and staff to bring diverse programming and events to Mesa College. The institute promotes activities that support diverse cultures and perspectives, such as Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and Cultural Unity Week.

Dr. Carroll was appointed chancellor of the San Diego Community College District in 2004. Earlier, she served as president of San Diego Mesa College for 11 years. Dr. Carroll is a graduate of Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. She holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in classics from the University of Pittsburgh.
