My name is Kim Flack and I have the great privilege of serving TCC as the Dean for Communication and Transitional Studies. In this division, we serve students in
- Adult Basic Education
- High School 21
- English Language Acquisition (ESL and EAP)
- Developmental English
- English Composition
- Communication Studies
I was born and raised in Tacoma, WA so nothing inspires me more than serving my community at our local community college. I’m proud to share that TCC has been my professional home since the fall of 2002. I began my career in Higher Education as an adjunct faculty member teaching ESL to our immigrant and refugee population in Pierce County. This experience helped shape and nurture my love and respect for the rich diversity of our community.
In line with the values of our institution, I’m deeply committed to social and racial justice and believe that equity must remain at the foundation of all we do in service to our community. Nothing inspires me more than having the opportunity to be a part of this work, and to be a part of the educational journey of the brilliant minds served at our college.
