Haroon Atcha

College of DuPage Board of Trustees

My name is Haroon Atcha and I’m running for Trustee for the College of DuPage. I’ve spent my career fighting for fair and affordable education. I’d like to help make the College of DuPage fairer and more affordable for everyone.

I believe in fair higher education for everyone. As a trustee, I’ll focus on making sure that all students in DuPage county have an equal chance to succeed, regardless of the color of their skin or economic background.

I’m an alumnus of the College of DuPage. I received an Associate’s degree in Business Management, my Bachelor’s Degree at Benedictine University and a Ph.D. in Political Science from Arizona State University.

I’ve spent the last decade fighting for improved higher education and solving complex problems. Whether teaching, as a researcher or as a data scientist, I’ve worked to make colleges more accountable and accessible while always putting students first.
