Christy Doyle accepts dean job

Christy Doyle has accepted the position of Dean of Health Professions and Nursing. Doyle has served in an interim capacity since August.

"Please join me in congratulating Christy on being chosen as the Dean of Health Professions and Nursing," said Lita Burns, Vice President for Instruction. "She has done a remarkable job after stepping into the position just a few days before the start of the year."

Doyle holds a master's of education degree in Education and Human Resource Studies and a bachelor's degree in Workforce Education and Development. She also has seven years' experience in higher education administration and over 20 years in experience at community colleges in adult education, workforce development, and most recently as the Dean of Instruction for Health and Environmental Sciences/Workforce at Spokane Community College.

"I want to thank the 11-member search committee who carved time out of their busy schedules to assist in the selection process for this important position. It is a rewarding experience to witness the commitment of faculty and staff in selecting a candidate they believe not only possesses the knowledge, skills and abilities to successfully do the job, but also believe is the right fit for North Idaho College," Burns said. "The committee believes Christy will provide leadership to the college in meeting the core themes of student success, educational excellence and community engagement."
