Teter Kapan

Director International Programs
Chemeketa Community College

25 years of work in International Education has confirmed for Teter Kapan, that the best outcomes are a result of putting students in the center of the work, while instituitions and professionals seek transparent, self reflective critique as a part of a continual assessment approach to program management. Leading change requires a willingness to be open to the influence of others even when it challenges ones own perspectives or approaches. Supporting staff development through evaluation tools in the community college setting is a key item in the spectum of resources available for managers. Teter believes that it can serve as a vital part of any department seeking improvements.
