Associate Dean for Educational Programs,
University of Washington
As Associate Dean for Educational Programs, Kevin works to coordinate undergraduate education across all four divisions of the College of Arts and Sciences.

This is his second year leading the C21 Fellows Program in León.
University Recruiting Manager,
A native Washingtonian, Chase grew up in Spokane and went to college at the University of Washington. Since graduating, Chase has explored several career paths: from managing a wine bar to working in public relations for the US government, he has experienced first hand why it is important to explore different paths before settling. For the past several years he has been in the tech space; first at Amazon and currently at Microsoft. Chase is now a University Recruiting Manager and oversees the placement of top university talent in the company. When he's not at work, Chase can be found reading a good James Rollins book or designing clothes for his art exhibits.
Director of Marketing,
A former high school teacher and educational editorial specialist, Chris has spent his professional life helping learners of all ages in both traditional and non-conventional settings. Before joining UnCollege as the Director of Marketing, Chris worked as a Channel Lead at CreativeLive – a Seattle-based ed tech company that is now the world's largest online video resource and community for creatives. Passionate about lifelong learning and travel, you can find his published opinions on Yahoo, Business2Community, Entrepreneur, and scattered about travel blogs worldwide.
UnCollege helps young people pursue their interests proactively through learning relevant skills and gaining real world experience. UnCollege is a program that deliberately teaches the soft skills learned in college and develops them during a nine-month gap year for students preparing for the next step in life. It's a three-phase program: international service learning, skill building workshops in SF, and an internship anywhere in the world. All of this is woven together by a dedicated coach and mentor(s) that the fellow works with throughout the program to identify and set personal and professional goals. The result is expedited growth on both levels.
