Edmonds Community College’s Interim Executive Vice President for Instruction, Gail Miulli, has announced the appointment of new Associate Dean for Instruction, Carey Schroyer.
Schroyer will be working with instructional deans supporting faculty (with an emphasis on part-time), assisting with part-time faculty classroom observations, and working with professional development coordinators. She will also be involved with e-Learning to help enhance professional development opportunities for faculty.
In her new position, Schroyer plans to have a strong focus on helping faculty be the best instructors they can be. She wants faculty to feel comfortable and encouraged.
“There is nothing more exciting than watching the light bulb go on, by empowering faculty and students,” Schroyer said.

Schroyer also served as a faculty representative on several committees across the campus as well as the project manager for Pathways to Careers, a foundation that creates employment opportunities for individuals with significant disabilities.
Prior to teaching full-time, Schroyer taught part-time in the Biology and Life Science divisions at Edmonds, Everett, and Highline Community Colleges.
Schroyer received her Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine from Logan College of Chiropractic and managed her own practice. She also completed a one year e-Learning certification from the University of Washington and the Quality Matters I and II Certification.
Schroyer started her new job at Edmonds Community College on Jan. 2.
