SAN FRANCISCO — A new chancellor has been chosen to oversee the troubled City College of San Francisco.
The college announced the appointment of 63-year-old Arthur Q. Tyler on Wednesday.
Tyler is an antiterrorism expert and was previously the president of Sacramento City College.
He will take the helm of the distressed public college on Nov. 1. The school, which serves 85,000 full- and part-time students, is set to lose its accreditation in 2014.
The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges says City College has fallen short in 14 separate areas, including financial management, library services and monitoring of student achievement.
Tyler said in a statement he is aware of the challenges the school faces. School officials say his contract is for two years with a yearly salary of $285,000.
