Independently accredited and highly ranked, Bellevue College is well known for providing innovative, affordable educational programs in the region.
Reporting to Dr. David May, who begins as President in July 2023, and serving as a member of the President’s Cabinet, the Vice President of Administrative Services facilitates and promotes effective support for the college’s mission of student learning by providing administrative services management for the college. Currently in a strong financial position with commitments to innovation, sustainability, and diversity, Bellevue College relies on the large, complex Administrative Services division to support key operations and services.

The Vice President serves on the management team for collective bargaining with employee organizations; works cooperatively with other Vice Presidents in establishing budgetary and performance targets; and represents the college to community groups and state organizations. As a member of the President’s Cabinet, the Vice President contributes to policy formulation, strategic planning, financial health, and budget development and works collaboratively in support of a positive work environment, college effectiveness, and student success.
The successful candidate will demonstrate experience in and passion for leading, motivating, and supporting teams across a range of essential services. Knowledge of finances, human resources, capital projects, and auxiliary services is important, but the campus community expects a vice president who will be a caring leader and a steadfast advocate for diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging at the college. The next Vice President of Administrative Services is expected to begin in January 2024.
