Tram Vo-Kumamoto Appointed Vice President of Instruction at Berkeley City College

26 May 2014

Tram Vo-Kumamoto, new Vice President of Instruction, Berkeley City CollegeTram Vo-Kumamoto, has been named vice president of instruction at Berkeley City College, Dr. Deborah Budd, president, announced. Ms. Vo-Kumamoto, who most recently served as Dean of Science and Mathematics at Chabot College (Hayward), has 20 years of professional experience in a variety of educational systems.

 

“Ms. Vo-Kumamoto’s experience will be a tremendous asset to the college,” Dr. Budd said. “As a dean at Chabot College, Ms. Vo-Kumamoto focused on creating cohort programs that integrated academic support and student services. They fostered customized, individually focused pathways which allowed more students to complete degrees in pre-allied health majors, as well as in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs.”

 

Ms. Vo-Kumamoto’s background in a variety of educational posts has prepared her well for her new position at Berkeley City College. She has worked in early childhood development, the K-12 system, at community colleges and at four-year universities with a diverse array of age groups and learning styles. Her experience has made her a recognized educational leader who creates developmentally appropriate, equitable and integrated educational programs which serve diverse populations.

 

“I am delighted to be part of Berkeley City College,” she said. “The college is committed providing the best educational opportunities to our community and we will continue to develop programs to prepare our students for transfer and for the demands of a variety of occupational environments.”

 

Ms. Vo-Kumamoto earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology and social welfare from UC Berkeley. She also holds a master’s degree in counseling with an emphasis in higher education from California State University, East Bay. Active in professional and community activities, Ms. Vo-Kumamoto is a member of the Community College League of California’s Commission on the Future. She also serves on the board of directors of Oakland’s East Bay Agency for Children Auxiliary Group.

 

Berkeley City College is located at 2050 Center St. between Shattuck Ave. & Milvia St., in Berkeley, only one-half block from BART and AC Transit lines. The college is part of the Peralta Community College District which serves the communities of Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland and Piedmont. The district also includes College of Alameda, Laney College and Merritt College. In addition to providing two-year programs that prepare students for long-term educational goals, Peralta also offers specialized life-long learning opportunities to Bay Area residents.
