What qualities do you want to see in Highline’s next president? Share your thoughts at an upcoming listening session.
As the college’s trustees work on recruiting and selecting a president, they want to hear from everyone.
Sessions are open to the public and campus community.
To make it convenient for community members to participate, trustees will offer two evening sessions:
- Monday, Dec. 4, 6:30 p.m.: Wiley Center Neighborhood House at Greenbridge
- Monday, Dec. 11, 6:30 p.m.: Federal Way Library, Meeting Room 2
Trustees will also offer daytime sessions Dec. 6 on the college’s main campus in Building 2. These sessions will be open to the public as well, though geared toward employees and students. Trustees want to learn what specific groups are looking for in a president, so they are offering sessions targeted to each campus group:
- 9–10:15 a.m.: Classified staff
- 10:30–11:45 a.m.: Exempt staff
- 12:30–1:45 p.m.: Students
- 2–3:15 p.m.: Faculty
- 4:30–6 p.m.: Evening students and part-time faculty
Trustees will use what they learn at the sessions to help create the presidential profile. Profiles often outline general duties and desired qualities or characteristics.
