The College of the Desert Board of Trustees has named Laura Hope of Chaffey College in Rancho Cucamonga as COD’s interim superintendent/president effective July 1, pending an employment agreement.

The often-divided COD board unanimously approved Hope’s contract agreement for a base salary of $355,000 plus a salary increase after one year of 4% or that which is granted to management staff, whichever figure is higher.
