Mark Mitsui, current vice president at South Seattle Community College, will take on responsibilities as president of North Seattle Community College beginning July 1.
Mitsui was selected following a national search and recommendations made by a campus-wide committee. He has served as vice president of student services at South since 2006. He was formerly a dean for student services at Green River Community College. His career also includes experience as a tenured instructor in health and fitness technology at Renton Technical College.
Mitsui has a bachelor’s from Western Washington University, a master’s from the University of Washington (UW) in education leadership and policy studies, and is currently a doctoral candidate at the UW in that field.
Mitsui is not the first Asian American president of North. Peter Ku was president in the early 90s. ♦
