Enos, Warren: Business Faculty Member and Division Director

Warren Enos was hired in September 1969 and retired in 2003 after 34 years of dedicated and accomplished service.  Upon his retirement, he was granted Emeritus status.

As a Pioneer Faculty member at the temporary Serra Campus on Washington Boulevard in Fremont, Warren was involved in establishing and implementing the business courses and programs.  He was also involved in the planning for and move to the permanent Fremont Campus on Mission Boulevard in 1974.

Warren was an outstanding professor of business and management.  He was instrumental in designing, developing and implementing the Business Supervision / Management Program.  He led the effort to modularize the curriculum to better serve the needs of working students.

Warren established the Cooperative Work Experience Education program for the college and administered it for more than 30 years.  He worked closely with businesses and industries in the region to place, monitor and evaluate student work experiences.  He made sure the program met all state requirements for cooperative education.  At its height, in the 1970s and 80s, over 700 students were involved in the program.

Throughout his 34-year tenure, Warren was a staunch advocate for the community college mission, especially for occupational and vocational education.  He wrote the first Vocational Education Act Plan for the college and submitted the first claim for funds under that act to support business and occupational programs.  From 1984 to 1991 he served as Director for the Business and Technology Division.

Warren was an enthusiastic supporter of Ohlone College.  His high energy level, passionate dedication, and optimistic approach were vital to the growth of the business and occupational programs at the college.
