Our President

Dr. John Mosby became Highline’s seventh president in July 2018. His appointment came after a 10-month national search by the college’s Board of Trustees, following the retirement of Dr. Jack Bermingham.

He has more than 23 years of higher education experience and holds a doctorate in leadership/higher education administration from the University of San Diego.

Highline has enjoyed remarkable leadership stability, with only six permanent presidents during its history, which began in 1961 as the first community college in King County.
