About Stacey Lee Donohue
I am Professor of English at Central Oregon Community College in Bend, Oregon. I've been a Department Chair (for two different departments), and for the 2015-16 academic year I will be an Interim Instructional Dean overseeing 4 departments (Humanities; Fine Arts and Communications; Social Sciences; and World Languages and Cultures).
I also serve on the Executive Committees of the Association of Departments of English and the Two Year College Discussion Group (soon to be called the Community College Forum).
My interest in the K-16 Alliance stems from my work as a faculty mentor and department chair working with high school instructors teaching dual enrollment courses (that count for both high school and college credit) in the high schools that serve a very large geographic region known as Central Oregon. Last year, our region was awarded a significant state grant for our "Cascades Commitment" project, which includes developing alternative certification and professional development pathways for high school teachers teaching college level composition courses in the high schools.
