A local, seasoned community college administrator has made her way to Renton Technical College’s vacant position of Vice President for Instruction.

Stephanie Delaney started on Aug. 5, according to a RTC press release. The position leads the college’s faculty and instructional efforts.

RTC President Kevin McCarthy stated in the release that Delaney was the right choice for the job. She previously served in administrative positions at South Seattle College, Seattle Central College and Cascadia College. Delaney also taught at Seattle University, Seattle Central, Highline College and Olympic College.

“Stephanie is a thoughtful, innovative, collaborative leader who champions faculty and is beloved in student services,” McCarthy stated in the release. “She empowers those around her, and her ideas are infused with how to better serve students.”

The new vice president also has a doctorate in higher education administration and distance learning from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a law degree from University of San Diego School of Law and a masters in environmental law from Vermont Law School.

The release stated Delaney is proud to join the college administration and continue its goals of learning, equity and community.

“RTC has an incredible reputation for service to students, and I’m excited to be a part of the team doing that work,” Delaney stated in the release.

Angel Reyna, who held the position since 2015, left to become president of Madera Community College Center in Madera, California in mid-May of this year.

In a RTC press release announcing Reyna’s leave in March, McCarthy stated that the college made academic strides under his leadership.

“I am very grateful for Angel’s excellent service at the college,” McCarthy stated in the March release. “Revisioning academic programs, promoting guided pathways and our work to be a more inclusive campus have benefited greatly from Angel’s leadership.”
