Bellevue College trustees select president

By Staff

Bellevue College trustees selected a Portland Community College administrator Nov. 5 to lead the local institution.

The choice of David Rule to lead the largest community college in Washington came as Bellevue College envisions a campus in the Issaquah Highlands. City officials said college administrators intended to select a permanent president before delving deeper into the plan.

Rule, president of Portland Community College’s Rock Creek campus, oversees 26,000 students.

Bellevue College serves about 37,000 students each year. Only the University of Washington and Washington State University outrank Bellevue College in size. Laura Saunders, a former Bellevue College administrator, is serving as interim president.

Rule is expected to start in January as the fifth president in the college’s 46-year history.

In May, college leaders held a forum in Issaquah to gather input about the proposed campus.
