Building Higher Education Linkages

Peninsula College is collaborating with several four-year colleges and universities to

provide opportunities for local residents to earn bachelor degrees on the peninsula.

“At

Peninsula

College, student

success is . . .our

mission, and we know

that our faculty have the potential

to not only change lives,

but to empower men and

women to become

more than they

think they can

possibly

be.”

Our collaborations include:

Western Washington University. A new partnership with Western

Washington University’s award-winning Huxley College of the

Environment allows peninsula residents to earn their B.A and

B.S. degrees on the Peninsula College campus without

having to leave the area or face long commutes to

Bellingham. The program will commence with

the start of the 2004 fall quarter. It is also

possible to earn a bachelor’s degree in education.

City University. Olympic Peninsula residents can

earn a bachelor’s degree in education.

University of Washington—Bothell. Individuals can earn

a bachelor’s degree in nursing.

Washington State University. Residents can earn 11 different

degrees via distance learning.

East Jefferson Education Consortium. Individuals can pursue a variety

of degree opportunities through the 12 universities and educational organizations

that have partnered with Peninsula College in this consortium. The partnering

entities, in addition to Peninsula College, include Centrum Center for the Arts,

Chapman University Bangor Campus, City University, Port Townsend Marine Science

Center, Southern Illinois University Program in Workforce Education and Development offered

at Bangor, University of Washington, Washington State University, and Western Washington

University.

Changing Lives Through Teaching

At Peninsula College, student success is more than just a

buzzword or a nice sounding catch phrase. It’s our mission, and

we know that our faculty have the potential to not only change

lives, but to empower men and women to become more than they

think they can possibly be. This past year we enhanced our already

strong teaching faculty when we:

Conducted searches for eight faculty tenure-track positions in

Biology, Computer Education, English, History, Mathematics,

Nursing, and Spanish Life and Culture and for two faculty

directors for the Applied Environmental Technologies Center of

Excellence.

Granted tenure to Mathematics Instructor Randy Anderson.

Dedicated funds to add four new tenure-track positions in 2005.

Implemented a Professional Development fund for faculty to

support scholarly activity.
