Change of Leadership in Foundation, Communications & Marketing

Dear Faculty and Staff,

I am writing to share one more organizational change at Shoreline Community College. In order to manage some organizational efficiencies in senior leadership, the offices of the Foundation/Advancement will be combined with Communications and Marketing. As some of you are aware, this was the original organization structure of this unit several years ago. Additionally, to ensure appropriate strategic direction for both offices a leadership change will occur.

Diana Dotter will shift to Acting Associate Vice President for Advancement, Communications and Marketing/Executive Director of the Foundation. Ms. Dotter’s experience in non-profit education and private sector industry makes her an ideal fit for this key leadership position. She has a strong background in foundation and advancement, giving and major donations, scholarship and grant support, strategic planning, marketing, branding, producing original media, and communication. She has a unique background leading creative teams, creating strategic partnerships for development purposes. The Foundation team will continue to operate as before and report to Ms. Dotter. The Communications & Marketing team will continue to operate with all members of the current team and report to Ms. Dotter. Ms. Dotter will be a member of the College’s executive team (ET).

Financial implications from these position changes will be paid for with salary savings from existing transitions. These changes will not cost more, or add to the general fund budget, for the College. 

Please join me in welcoming Ms. Dotter to her new role.

Phillip J. King

Acting President
