Everett Community College Director of Institutional Research Darryl Dieter has won an exemplary status award from the Washington Community Colleges Humanities Association. Dieter, who also teaches classes in American government, business law, and research methods/statistics, received the award Oct. 15 in Woodinville at the WCCHA conference. He was nominated by EvCC Humanities Center coordinator Joyce Walker. “Darryl’s contributions to the Humanities have been truly exemplary. His involvement in many diverse activities has helped the Humanities to thrive at Everett Community College.” Walker said. Dieter has been involved with the college’s Humanities Center since its creation in 2005. In addition to helping the Humanities Center conduct research and surveys, Dieter has planned several major Humanities events at the college. In 2009-10, the Humanities Center theme was “Inquires” with a different focus each quarter. For winter quarter, the question was “What is patriotism?”  Dieter persuaded “The True Patriot” authors Nick Hanauer and Eric Liu to donate 250 copies of their book and visit campus for a discussion. Dieter also coordinated a faculty panel about patriotism and a student patriotism poster contest, working closely with EvCC’s art department and Hanauer’s and Liu’s True Patriot Network organization. Dieter continues to serve as a member of EvCC’s Humanities Steering Committee.
