Kim Chapman

Kim Chapman

Vice President for Instruction

425.640.1856 | kim.chapman@edmonds.edu

As the chief academic officer of the college, I work with faculty, staff, and administrators to help all of our students be successful. I supervise all instructional programs and academic support services. My desire is to help people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences find and follow their dreams. That is why I have devoted my professional life to working in community colleges.

I started my own college career by earning an associate’s degree at North Lake College. I also hold a Bachelor and Master of Arts in English from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and I recently started a doctorate program in community college leadership at New Jersey City University. At Edmonds College, I have served as an instructor, interim dean for the library, and dean of humanities and social sciences. I also taught both full- and part-time at South Texas College. I have been very involved with EC’s Guided Pathways initiative, and I helped develop a Career and College Success course that was first offered in fall 2019.  

Originally from Texas, I have lived in Washington for the past 18 years, so it's definitely home now! I have two sons, 17 and 21 and one 9 year old "puppy." I love the outdoors – hiking, exploring, and being on or near the water. I love reading, writing, and, honestly, I believe in life long learning. It's good for the soul! 


James Mulik

Jim Mulik

Vice President for Finance, Grants, and Institutional Effectiveness
Accreditation Liaison Officer

425.640.1610 | james.mulik@edmonds.edu 

I oversee the Business Office/Finance Team; the Office of Planning, Research, and Assessment (OPRA); the Grants Office; and accreditation. More specifically, our team of dedicated employees works with the Office of the President to provide vision and leadership in the areas of resource allocations; strategic and college planning; research and assessment; grants development; and institutional effectiveness activities. 

As for our team’s day-to-day work, most of our time is spent working with others at the college to more effectively serve the college's students. In addition, we help tell the story of the college to external audiences, such as the state and federal governments; people from other colleges who evaluate the college; grantors; and potential students and their families. These stories include statistics about the college and its students, evidence of the quality of programs, and comments and feedback conveyed through surveys.

On a personal note, while I am originally from Kansas City, I have strong connections to Micronesia, particularly the nation of Kiribati where my wife is from and where I served as a Peace Corps volunteer several years ago.


Eva Smith

Eva Smith, MSIM, CDMP

Chief Information Officer, Information Technology and eLearning

425.640.1394 | eva.smith@edmonds.edu

I believe that technology can provide transformational opportunities for education and am proud to lead the Information Technology and eLearning (IT&e) division at Edmonds College. This team of highly-skilled professionals supports the college's mission of teaching, learning and community by providing excellent information technology solutions and services that promote and enhance productivity and opportunities for learning. The IT&e team engages with all areas of the college, providing training and support, while also ensuring high availability and reliability of the critical computing services necessary to perform all college functions.

My career path was not traditional. I earned an associate degree from Shoreline Community College before transferring to the University of Washington to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Education/Sociology. My first career was in student loan servicing. Seven years later, I was hired by Electronic Data Systems (EDS) and trained as a systems engineer in strategic planning consulting. After 10 years in progressive I.T. roles, I joined Edmonds College as a full-time instructor, and returned to UW to complete a Master of Science in Information Management.

My husband and I both grew up in Edmonds, and currently live in Bothell, Wash. with our two dogs.

Equity and Inclusion consists of dedicated, experienced, and caring people who are committed to excellence and making a positive difference in the community and with students. We work together with the campus community to create an environment that supports and honors diversity, equity and inclusion for all of its members.

I enjoy connecting with people and building positive and healthy relationships. I believe that education changes our lives and it will continue to change the lives of the next generation. I am committed to individuals having an opportunity to obtain an education that values their voice, culture and identities and allows them to perform at their best. I am passionate about my work with helping to create momentum that compels us to create communities that advocate for diversity, equity and social justice. I enjoy learning, laughing, motivating and empowering others, listening to music, and spending time talking with strangers, family and friends.
