Save the Date: Day of Learning is April 30!

Dear Colleague, 

Please mark your calendars for our all-campus Day of Learning event this spring! This will be an exciting opportunity for us to take a day to come together virtually, learn together, and build on our great legacy of creating an inclusive campus culture of support and care. The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Learning Team (DEI-LT) is working hard to develop the day’s content and coordinate the logistics with key associate deans to make this a successful event for all of us. 

2021 Day of Learning 

This year’s event will take place on Friday, April 30, 2021, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. 

  • The Day of Learning Intranet page will be updated shortly and will be a centralized place where you can find event information. 
  • A SharePoint site is being built now, where all event links, schedules, and learning materials will be stored (this link will be added to the Intranet page in the near future). 
  • Additional pre-event learning opportunities will be shared with you via email in advance of the event. 
  • All staff and full-time faculty are expected to participate in this daylong event; part-time faculty are welcome to attend but are not required to participate. 
  • Classes will be canceled, and campus services will be closed on this day to facilitate maximum employee participation. 

This Year’s Theme is “How Do We Foster Inclusive Change at Shoreline?” 

Diversity. Equity. Inclusion. We know these words are part of Shoreline’s values, but a lack of consensus on their meaning has made it difficult to embody them and facilitate sustainable changes on our campus. Key questions also face us: How can we navigate difficult conversations about campus culture? How do our unique perspectives shape our understanding of institutional inequities? The goal for this year’s Day of Learning is to learn skills and gain knowledge that will create a more inclusive campus culture for supporting each other and serving our students. While engaging in sessions that center DEI, we will put our shared definitions into individual and collective action, and continue to work on our ongoing commitment to inclusive excellence and institutional change. 

Please watch for additional information in the coming and weeks, as we build out more pre-event learning opportunities for you. Looking forward to engaging in this important work together. 


Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
