    Meet the Dean 
Michael Sloan, Dean

Business, Agriculture, Industry, Technology & Safety

Michael Sloan, Dean of BAITS is a transplant from central Illinois where he served as an academic dean over career & technical educations (CTE) programs and a faculty member in the mechanical engineering technology program. He enjoys living in the Redding community and working with the BAITS faculty and staff to provide quality programs and courses that meet the needs of students and employers in Northern California.  Michael is still learning all the interests area stakeholders as he works with faculty to improve outstanding programs at Shasta College.

Michael believes that CTE students who choose to earn applied science degrees and certificates have occupational goals in their minds. Community colleges, therefore, need to provide these students clear academic pathways to a career either immediately upon graduation or after they complete a bachelor's degree. If you have questions about the academic pathway of any BAITS program, do not hesitate to contact the BAITS office.

Since the flat fields of Illinois has been his home for most of his life, Michael enjoys the geographic features of Northern California  and can be found on most weekends hiking the many trails in the region.
