David Harrington has joined Front Range Community College as a dean of instruction at the Boulder County Campus.
“Dr. Harrington impressed a broad swath of the campus community with his calm demeanor, his thoughtful responses to questions he was asked, and the insightful questions he asked of us,” said Linda Curran, campus vice president. “It was evident that he’s a good listener, and also that he has substantial experience as dean and chief academic officer in multiple areas that are very relevant to the Boulder County Campus and FRCC.”
Harrington’s previous academic role was as dean and chief academic officer of Sheldon Jackson College in Sitka, Alaska. A registered nurse who has worked in critical care, Harrington also has worked as an academic outreach counselor for the Alaska Physician’s Assistant Program. He also has taught at the College of Idaho and Central Methodist College in Fayette, Mo. He succeeds Sandie Love, who retired.
Harrington has a Ph.D. in philosophical psychology from the Pennsylvania State University, a master of arts in clinical psychology from Seattle University, a bachelor of arts from Western Washington University, and an associate of technical arts in nursing from Olympic College.
