Dr. Bryan Reece has over 26 years of community college experience with rich teaching expertise and a range of administrative involvement. He came to Norco College from Crafton Hills College where he served as vice president of instruction. In this role, he was responsible for the academic program of the College, schedule development, faculty training, learning resources, program quality, education master planning and other matters related to the academic life of faculty and students. Prior to Crafton, he held two dean positions, served as the academic senate president, and taught political science at Cerritos College.

Dr. Reece has been instrumental in the development of Educational Master Plans and related strategic initiatives embraced by the campus community. He has helped raise Norco College from an Inland Empire/regional institution to one of the higher performing and more prestigious colleges statewide. Among the most impressive have been the college's performance with regard to course retention/success and program completion. These rates have risen to the highest levels in the Inland Empire and are now among the highest in the state.

Dr. Reece is an awarded teacher and a published author with a strong record of grant writing and fundraising. Referencing his own experience as an undergraduate, Dr. Reece recently wrote,

I was once a 1st generation student, struggling to discover what I have to offer the world; what the world has to offer me. A handful of people came beside me, looking past my worn clothes and broken car. They worked with me, worked on me, worked for me and changed my life. I remember every single one of them. I often think about them during my commute or at home in those quiet moments when everyone has gone to bed. Educators touch student lives in permanent, soulful ways—in ways that change the trajectory of our lives. I have spent my entire career trying to be part of this collective effort and look forward to continuing this with the students, faculty, staff, managers and community members of Norco College.​​
