The board of trustees at Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) voted unanimously during its June meeting to extend the rolling contract for LWTech president Dr. Amy Morrison to 2024.

The trustees hired Morrison, six years ago.

“We had full confidence six years ago that Dr. Morrison would lead the college in a fair, inclusive, thoughtful, and productive way, and she’s done so much more during her time at the college,” said board chair Darrell Mitsunaga, who was a trustee when Morrison was hired, in a press release. “Dr. Morrison exemplifies innovative and steady leadership, which you can see reflective in the growth of new programs, support services and increased completion rates of LWTech’s students.”

In the release, Morrison added, “I truly appreciate the confidence the trustees and the college community have bestowed in me. I am so proud of the work we do at the college to help our students prepare for today’s careers and tomorrow’s opportunities.”

As the only public institute of technology in Washington state, LWTech provides students with skills relevant to today’s workplace. LWTech offers eight applied bachelor’s degrees, 57 associate degrees, and more than 90 professional certificates in 48 areas of study, including STEM-focused programs in science, technology, engineering and math.
