South Seattle College Presidential Profile

In July 2017, the Seattle Colleges board of trustees adopted the Seattle Colleges 2017-2023 Strategic Plan. Earlier in the year, the district developed a System Integration Plan. The implementation of both in the midst of the district’s 50th year will help Seattle Colleges become the most transformative and most relevant community college system in the country.

Under these dynamic conditions, Dr. Shouan Pan, Seattle Colleges chancellor, invites highly qualified individuals to apply for the position of president of South Seattle College. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced leader to envision, develop, and implement change as well as improve student access and success.

As the chief executive officer of the college, the president commits to taking the college to a new level of excellence and to leading the college as a partner in implementing Seattle Colleges’ Strategic and System Integration plans.
