Ajita was recently appointed as CEO of Calbright College – a public, online campus founded in 2018 designed to prepare millions for the future of work. Calbright teaches the hard and soft skills required to succeed on day one of employment, and crafts low-to-no-cost online program pathways designed to connect students with new job opportunities.

A former higher-education tsar in the Obama administration, Ajita’s job today is to lead the college to help underserved Californians gain greater economic mobility and to provide skilled talent for hiring employers – something in especially high demand given the nationwide economic shock from the pandemic.
