We are sad to report that Rich Wilbanks, retired political science instructor, passed away on June 12, 2021. Rich earned his BA and MA from the University of Oregon, taught high school in the Acalanes District for six years, and then came to DVC in 1969. He served on the Social Science Division Council, the Faculty Senate Council, the United Faculty Executive Board, and the FACCC Board. He was Senate President, UF President and Faculty Lecturer. Rich retired in 1998.

Rich requested that there be no memorial service. His family suggests that any memorial donations be made to the Southern Poverty Law Center or to the Bancroft Library.
