Executive Leadership: A Welcome from the President

Seattle Central Interim President Sheila Edwards Lange, Ph.D.On behalf of our college community, welcome to Seattle Central College, one of the most diverse institutions of higher learning in the state of Washington. Immediately apparent to visitors and others new to our college is the energy and vitality of this special place. We are located in the heart of Seattle and the thriving, exciting neighborhood of Capitol Hill.

Our paramount focus has been, and always will be, the success of our students, both in education and in life. For nearly 50 years, Seattle Central has been educating the citizens of Seattle and the surrounding region with the best programs of their kind anywhere, including college transfer, career training, continuing education and basic studies.

We are an integral part of our community, our city and our region, providing access to higher education for thousands of students. And we are partners in economic and social development. We educate, among others, the nurses who care for us, the IT professionals who build our networks, the mariners who sail our ferries and many others, pursuing a variety of professions, who propel our economy forward.

I invite you to explore these pages and discover for yourself the great riches to be found here. Yet the real keys to the Seattle Central experience lie within our community. Speak to our faculty and staff, and you'll quickly discover their dedication and passion in helping our students grow and thrive. Talk with our students, and you will meet active learners who are discovering new ways to purposefully engage with the world, as they seek powerful ways to improve their lives and those of others.

It won't take long for you to discover what makes our campus so exceptional. I welcome you to visit at any time, and I look forward to seeing you.

Sincerely,
Sheila Edwards Lange, Ph.D.
Interim President
