SACRAMENTO (AP) — The California Community Colleges have a new chancellor.

The system Board of Governors on Monday unanimously selected Eloy Ortiz Oakley, the superintendent-president of the Long Beach Community College District.

Gov. Jerry Brown said in a statement that Oakley knows the system inside and has served at every level from classroom teacher to running a campus.

Oakley succeeds Brice W. Harris, who retired in April after nearly four years as chancellor. Oakley takes charge on Dec. 19.

California has 113 community colleges and 2.1 million students.
