South Seattle College President Finalists and Public Forums Announced

After an extensive nationwide search, South Seattle College has named three finalists for the position of president.  Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to attend public forums where candidates will share their background, qualifications and vision for the college, followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience. 

Dr. Alanka Brown has withdrawn her candidacy.  As a result, the public forum for Friday, April 13 has been cancelled. 

If you are unable to attend a forum in person, Seattle Colleges Cable Television (SCCTV) will livestream each forum and make those videos available on-demand. Please visit SCCTV for live and recorded links.

The finalists and public forum schedule are as follows:

Monday, April 9, 2018 | 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. | South Seattle College Olympic Hall Auditorium (OLY 120)

  • Dr. Tod Treat, Executive Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs, Tacoma Community College

Wednesday, April 11 | 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. | South Seattle College Olympic Hall Auditorium (OLY 120)

Monday, April 23 | 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. | South Seattle College Olympic Hall Auditorium (OLY 120)

  • Dr. Rosie Rimando-Chareunsap, Vice President for Student Services, South Seattle College

Immediately following each public forum, from 2:30 – 3:00 p.m., candidates will answer questions from current South Seattle College students.  In addition to the forums, each candidate will participate in a full day of campus interviews with students, various campus representatives and Seattle Colleges District leadership.

Anyone interested in learning more about the candidates can visit the South Seattle College President Search webpage. Attendees will be able to provide feedback on the candidates at the website above and with paper forms provided at the forums. That feedback will help inform the Seattle Colleges Board of Trustees’ decision.
