Bradley Huggins has worked at Bellevue College for nearly 10 years in International Education.  Prior to that he worked for 15 years in different aspects of Student Affairs creating collaborative opportunities for students. Previous colleges where he worked include the University of Washington, Western Washington University, Skagit Valley College and the Art Institute of Seattle. Brad served on the Region I Team for NAFSA Association of International Educators as a team member, and as a national Trainer for F-1 and J-1 Visa Regulations and Intercultural Communication workshops. As he begins his new role in Student Engagement, he is cycling off from being the Chair of the Association of Washington International Student Affairs, for whom he has served terms as Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. 

Brad earned a master’s degree in Student Affairs Administration and a bachelors degree in Chinese Language and Culture at Western Washington University. During his undergraduate studies he also received a certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and for a short period he taught ESL and led ESL-focused activities at WWU and Skagit Valley College. Brad’s graduate internship involved developing para-professional (student leader) training and he has since developed many orientations and leadership trainings and worked to expand student involvement opportunities in his roles in higher education.  

Brad loves listening to students’ stories and supporting them as they navigate their career and community paths. He seeks to facilitate training and discussion that helps students connect and learn about each other’s diverse cultures and experiences. When he’s not working with students and the college community, he is at home reading, gardening or out exploring the local mountains.
