Media Contacts and Staff

We work cooperatively with the communications directors at each college to coordinate our news and communications efforts. The following staff members can serve as spokespersons to the media or resources to Seattle Colleges employees.

Note: Student Information Disclosure Policy

Students are covered by a federal law called FERPA—the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act. This law protects the confidentiality of certain information and records pertaining to students, including those attending Seattle Colleges. Unless the student consents (or a FERPA exception applies), Seattle Colleges is prohibited from disclosing to third parties information from a student’s education records.
