ctcLink College Leaders

Each college district and the SBCTC agency has identified one individual to serve as its primary ctcLink College Leader, often referred to as the ctcLink Point of Contact (PoC).

The primary ctcLink College Leaders are the voting members representing their college districts on the ctcLink College Collaboration Group in the ctcLink governance structure.  Two will serve on the ctcLink Working Group.

The ctcLink College Leader is expected to:

  • Serve as the primary point of contact with SBCTC for all college-related ctcLink matters
  • Attend ctcLink College Collaboration Group meetings
  • Provide cross-pillar and system-wide perspective
  • Coordinate local efforts related to ctcLink
  • Provide local oversight for training, communications, testing, reporting, and other change management activities

  • High-level understanding of the ctcLink system
  • Cross-pillar and system-wide perspective
  • Systems and strategic thinker
  • Strong networking skills
  • Collaborative, respected and influential
  • Understanding of policy and process issues
  • Ability to listen actively and advocate for colleges
  • Firm grasp of project and change management principles a plus
  • Ensure all colleges have ownership and a voice in decision-making related to ctcLink
  • Participate in prioritization for ctcLink system changes to make efficient use of technology investments

  • Partner with SBCTC PMO and Support teams
  • Raise issues for holistic and global solution by SBCTC
  • Continue to work toward refining common processes across the system
  • Coordinate/disseminate best practices to optimize system usage


The time commitment will vary from college to college, but there must be a minimal commitment to attend regularly scheduled meetings related to ctcLink governance; specifically, the ctcLink College Collaboration Group and other meetings related to ctcLink governance and prioritization.


Members of the group will attend meetings virtually via web conference. In-person attendance may become an option if/when appropriate.

What does the college or agency need to do?

To designate a new ctcLink college leader, your college president or chancellor submits a new official ctcLink College Leader Appointment Form.

  • It is required that the president or chancellor completes the form to personally acknowledge their college's commitment to this important leadership role.
  • Your college or district may indicate one or more backup ctcLink College Leaders on the form.
  • Email completed form to Grant Rodeheaver and CC Dani Bundy and Sherry Nelson to expedite onboarding.

What happens next?

Among other things, new ctcLink College Leaders will:

  • Receive a welcome message with resources
  • Be invited to the ctcLink College Collaboration Group meetings
  • Get subscribed to the ctcLink Point of Contacts (PoC) closed list
  • Be added to ctcLink College Leaders web roster
  • Attend a short PoC roles and responsibilities orientation with Dani Bundy and Roger Curry

The name listed below is the primary contact, but some colleges have named backups to share the load.
