Dean of Access and Advising

The hiring committee held final interviews during the week of June 24th, 2022, for the Dean of Access and Advising. A final decision was made to offer the position to Chippi Bello. At the time of the offer, Ms. Bello held the role of director for the College’s AANAPISI grant.

Chitpasong Bello, affectionately known as Chippi, has more than 25 years of higher education experience in the private and public sectors, as well as community colleges and four-year institutions. She was previously an Associate Dean of Financial Aid at Clark College where she oversaw veterans services, student employment, scholarships, financial aid, and workforce education services. 

Currently, Chippi is the Director of the AANAPISI project and Acting Financial Aid Director at Shoreline. She comes to Shoreline with not only a wealth of experience in higher education – especially in the areas mentioned above – but also with personal experiences that help her see students’ perspectives. She is a proud refugee from the country of Laos, where her family escaped in the early 1980s. They faced many challenges as United States immigrants, and Chippi recognizes those challenges as privileges to help others. 

The College will begin immediate recruitment for the new director for the AANAPISI program.
