Listening Sessions to Solicit Community Opinion
Trustees will use what they hear during the sessions to help create the presidential profile. Profiles often outline general duties and desired qualities or characteristics.
Sessions are open to all.
Share Your Thoughts
Trustees are especially interested in your answers to two questions:
- What are the types of career highlights, results and achievements that would be uniquely desirable for the new president of Highline?
- What type of leadership and communication style is uniquely required for success for the president of Highline?
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

NOTE: Since the comment period has ended, the online form has been removed.
