Ritu Raju has been appointed as the new president of Gateway Technical College

She replaces Bryan Albrecht, who retired from the college after serving as president since 2006.

Raju was selected for the role following a nationwide search conducted over the summer and early fall of 2022. Prior to this appointment, she served as vice president of academic affairs at Tarrant County College‘s Northeast Campus in Texas.

Raju holds a doctorate in Technical Communication and Rhetoric from Texas Tech University, a master’s degree in English from Sam Houston State University, and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston-Downtown.

“I hope to build on that success and continue to keep Gateway in the forefront as a leader in education and workforce training and to provide a lifelong resource for students, graduates and the community,” she said.

Gateway was led by the late Dr. Carole Johnson from 1995 to 1998.
