Warren Brown chosen as North Seattle president

The Seattle Colleges District just announced that Warren Brown, the executive vice president of instruction and student services, has been named as the president of North Seattle College. Here is the official announcement:

SEATTLE – Warren J. Brown, an administrator with experience at community colleges throughout Western Washington, has been named as the next president at North Seattle College. He will begin his responsibilities at North on July 1, 2014.

Brown is currently executive vice president for instruction and student services at Seattle Central College and an adjunct faculty member for Seattle University’s doctoral program in educational leadership. He was selected following a national search and recommendations made by a campus-wide committee to Jill A. Wakefield, chancellor of the Seattle Colleges, which include North, South and Seattle Central Colleges.

“Warren Brown has an unwavering commitment to students and their success,” Wakefield said. “He has led instruction and student services at several colleges, including in our district, and he is committed to building North Seattle College into a first-choice college for those who live and work in our city.”

Brown has more than 17 years of experience in the community college system and has served as executive vice president at Seattle Central College since 2010, where he facilitated instructional planning that led to the development of new applied baccalaureate degrees in allied health and nursing and a new associate degree in allied health. Formerly, he was dean for student learning at Cascadia Community College and associate dean for academic support at Whatcom Community College. His career also includes experience as a tenured instructor in communication studies at Pierce College and as an instructor at Portland State University.

Brown holds a doctor of education degree in higher education – curriculum and instruction from the University of Washington. His research on multicultural curriculum development in online courses has been published in journals including the Community College Journal of Research and Practice and the Multicultural Education and Technology Journal. He earned his master’s degree in speech communication at Portland State University and his bachelor’s degree at the University of Washington.
