Fujii was selected after a six-month nationwide search led by a nine-member search advisory committee.
“Arapahoe Community College is an institution refusing to resign itself to the status quo, but one which strives to do and be more,” Fujii said. “I am excited and honored about serving and working with ACC and its communities as we seek ambitious investigation in pursuit of meaningful and impactful change through accessible, inclusive, and welcoming environments."
