SCC collaborates with Lake Washington Technical College to fill position

Shoreline Community College and Lake Washington Technical College are taking an innovative approach to meeting the needs of both schools.

“Shoreline and Lake Washington will be collaborating in the area of institutional research,” SCC President Lee Lambert said Wednesday, February 17, 2010. “Institutional research is critical in making the best decisions possible for each school.”

The innovative part is that the colleges are building an institutional research team that will focus on both institutions. On Wednesday, SCC posted a job titled “Assistant Director for Institutional Effectiveness and Strategic Planning.” The position will be a member of an institutional research team comprised of staff from both colleges.

While the position will report to SCC’s Vice President of Academic Affairs John Backes, it will also work in close collaboration with LWTC’s Research and Development department which includes an executive director and several supporting positions. An interagency agreement between the schools will enable data sharing so that the team members can serve both schools.

SCC’s position has been vacant since the retirement in 2009 of former Director of Institutional Research, Jim James.

“This is an effort by both schools to improve services,” Lambert said, adding that the cost for each college will be about the same as before.
