Paula Langteau came to Shoreline Community College on Monday , April 7, 2014, the first of two visits by candidates for the position of college president.
Langteau, who is Campus Dean and CEO at the University of Wisconsin-Marinette, started her day with a reception that included members of the Presidential Screening Committee as well as the President’s Cabinet. From there, she had a question-and-answer session with members of the Executive Leadership Team.
Following lunch, Langteau received a comprehensive tour of the campus. Then, it was an hour-long appearance at an open forum, which drew mostly faculty and staff along with several community members. Next came a student forum that turned into a relatively relaxed sit-down conversation with a handful of Student Body Association leaders.
Langteau ended her on-campus day in a more formal setting; an executive-session interview with members of the Board of Trustees. Langteau and trustees finished with dinner at a nearby restaurant.
Prior to her position at University of Wisconsin-Marinette, Langteau was Dean of Instruction at Nicolet Area Technical College in Rhinelander, Wis. She also served as the Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Georgia Perimeter College, Atlanta, Ga. Langteau received a B.A., Eureka College, Eureka, Ill., earned an M.A. and has completed Ph.D. coursework at Ball State University, Muncie, Ind.
The second candidate interview is scheduled for Friday, April 11, with Cheryl Roberts, the president at Chemeketa Community College, in Salem, Ore. Roberts will go through the same day-long interview process. There is one venue change for Roberts; the forums will now be in the PUB Main Dining room – as were Langteau’s – following a the resolution of a scheduling conflict.
Members of the Board of Trustees are scheduled to begin their deliberations at 4 p.m., Monday, April 14, during an executive session.
