Dr. James Jansen
James Jansen will be the next Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs at Shoreline Community College.

Jansen will take over the position from John Backes who is retiring June 30. Jansen’s first day on campus will be July 30 and college officials are considering options for covering the gap.

“I really look forward to working with President Lambert and the rest of the team. (Shoreline) is a comprehensive community college and does it all so well. I feel like it was just the right choice for me,” Jansen said Friday, June 22, 2012, after accepting the position. “This is coming home for us. We really have adopted the Pacific Northwest as home. I came east to acquire valuable education and experience, but the Northwest is our home.”

Jansen has earned a long list of academic credentials, including a PhD in Language and Literature from the University of Utah; an MS in Postsecondary Education, MA in English and Rhetoric and MS in Professional/Technical Writing all from Portland State University; a BA in English/ESL and BA in Russian from the University of Utah and a BA in German from Benedictine College, in Atchison, Kan.

“Along with significant personal academic achievements, Dr. Jansen brings experience and focus in the areas that will help Shoreline move into the future,” Shoreline Community College President Lee Lambert said. “I believe Shoreline students will benefit from the experiences, values and commitment to the community college mission he brings as an educator.”
