Warren Brown, an administrator with 17 years of experience in the state’s community college system, has been named the next president of North Seattle College. He will start his new job in July.
Brown was selected after a national search. He is executive vice president for instruction and student services at Seattle Central College, a position he has held since 2010, and an adjunct faculty member for Seattle University, where he works in the doctoral program in educational leadership.
He has also worked as dean for student learning at Cascadia Community College and associate dean for academic support at Whatcom Community College.
He has a bachelor’s, as well as a doctor of education degree in higher education, from the University of Washington, and a master’s degree from Portland State University.
Seattle Colleges — North, Central and South — dropped the word “community” from their names a few weeks ago. They are primarily two-year colleges, but offer some applied bachelor’s degrees in a number of subjects.
