Beginning in August, North Seattle Community College President Mark Mitsui will begin a new position in a larger educational setting: the U.S. Department of Education. Mitsui has been selected to serve as deputy assistant secretary for community colleges.
Mitsui, who has been president of the college since 2010, will work in the Office of Vocational and Adult Education, in Washington, D.C.
“While this is a loss for Seattle, it is also a vote of confidence in the quality of leadership in our colleges and our city,” Seattle Community Colleges Chancellor Jill Wakefield said in a prepared statement.
Mitsui led a team that won a $2.4 million Department of Education grant while serving as vice president at South Seattle Community College.
