Cascadia College is pleased to announce Kerry Levett, Ph.D., as the new vice president of student learning and success.

“I’m honored to be joining the Cascadia College community,” said Kerry in a press release, who will start July 30. “This is an incredible opportunity to collaborate with faculty and staff in transforming our students’ lives through exceptional instruction and service, and I am excited to explore innovative partnerships on and beyond campus.”

Levett, who previously served as the executive dean of student affairs at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon, has held leadership positions in student housing, undergraduate engagement, and student life. Prior to her role in administration, she taught classes in dissertation creation strategies, research methods for social sciences and developmental psychology.

“Kerry has demonstrated a tremendous grasp of the strategies that help students to succeed,” said Cascadia College President Eric Murray in a press release. “I am impressed by her strong communication style, inclusive leadership style and listening skills.”

The vice president for student learning and success provides leadership, direction and supervision for all academic areas and student success programs. The position supervises deans and support staff and works to fulfill the college mission of transforming lives through integrated education in a learning-centered community.

Levett holds a doctorate of education in higher and postsecondary education from Arizona State University, a master’s degree in education from the University of Colorado and a bachelor’s degree in Christian education from Westminster College.

She succeeds Rosemary Sutton, Ph.D., who is retiring after five years at Cascadia College.
