April was National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In recognition of this important issue and in response to a mandate by the Washington state legislature, the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (WSBCTC) is conducting a campus climate survey that will go to all students and employees throughout the WSBCTC system on May 2. The assessment is designed to learn more about student and employee attitudes and knowledge about sexual violence, awareness of resources, and incidences of sexual and physical violence on and off campus.
Students and employees are invited to share input about their experience at North Seattle College with a team from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU), which is conducting a Year Seven comprehensive evaluation at North from Monday, April 18, 2016, through Wednesday, April 20, 2016.
On Saturday, April 2, the Seattle Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) held their 94th annual banquet and fundraiser at Sodo Park. This year North Seattle College was among their awards recipients with a special recognition for championing youth.
North graduate Tsedeke Ketema came from a rural farming community in Ethiopia where accessing formal education was a challenge. His success at North proves his dedication to learning.
Kennan Knudson, one of Ketema’s first teachers at North, met him soon after he arrived in the United States, having traveled from home by himself. “Right away, he impressed me with his beautiful smile, calm and thoughtful demeanor, and high quality work," she recalls. “In his English 97/98 class, Tsedeke quickly became a leader. In the series of composition classes he took with me, he stood out as a hard worker, an outstanding critical thinker, and a clear and professional writer.”
The North Seattle College Library has been selected in a competitive application process to host Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness, a traveling exhibition to U.S. libraries.
As part of North Seattle College’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion on campus, and in an effort to create a more safe and welcoming environment for all, the college is inviting employees and students to share input on an initiative to establish all-gender restrooms on campus.
Local electronics technician jobs pay well and do not require a four-year degree. What’s more, lots of these jobs are available in the greater Seattle area right now. “The demand is off the charts,” according to North’s electronics faculty member and program coordinator Tim Fiegenbaum, speaking on a video now running on kiro7.com. Students in North's electronics program can complete their training in two years. Tuition can be as much as $12,000, but there are great prospects for landing jobs that start at $20 an hour.
