Campus Updates 10/13/22


Good afternoon all, 

I can’t believe the week has just flown by.  It’s been a busy one here for sure with a lot going on- I imagine it is the same for you.  I am very much looking forward to meeting our colleagues from the NWCCU Accreditation team tomorrow and discussing all the progress we have made on our accreditation recommendations.   A HUGE thank you to the faculty, staff, and admin teams who have spent countless hours making much progress on our learning outcomes assessment and academic planning processes.  These initial steps help set the stage for our next steps in planning and tying everything we do to data, DEI, and the mission.  Looking forward to all of that movement into the future.  More updates soon! 

At the end of last week, I attended the WACTC meeting virtually and heard updates from the state board and presidents across the state.  It was a very informative meeting.  It is always great to hear how other colleges are handling different issues and also to make new connections.  Speaking of which, I will be meeting with the president of Cascadia this week just to connect and share ideas.  I am looking forward to getting to know President Murray and learning about his experiences in the region.   

This weekend I came to the campus theater to help introduce Councilperson Chris Roberts who introduced the film Promised Land to an audience of community members and students.  The film is a documentary about the Duwamish and Chinook struggle toward Federal recognition.  It was powerful.  Councilmember Roberts shared his own experiences as a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and his support for our local communities.  The panel following was also very moving.  It was great to connect with panel members afterward to discuss other ways the college may connect in the future. 

I also stopped by the 6×6 Northwest event.  It was PACKED! It was great seeing all the people and children there waiting to see if anyone was interested in buying their art. It was awesome to see so many people come out for it. I did see Shoreline folks in attendance as well.  

Finally, thank you to everyone who attended virtually or in-person to our first community check-in event. Even at 8 am, we had an impressive showing!! I really appreciate the candor and honesty with which folks brought up concerns as well as the willingness to be silly and have some fun (and coffee of course). I will be following up on a couple concerns that were brought up and report updates to campus.

Community Check-ins are a great way to do just that—check-in!  

Creating space for conversations, check-ins, and feedback is important to the Executive Team (ET) and President Kahn. Join us to check-in for the fall, enjoy light refreshments, listen, and share in growing our campus community. We appreciate you!

Getting vaccinated and boosted is still the best way to fight COVID-19. The Washington State Department of Health vaccine locator at Vaccinate WA: Find COVID-19 Vaccine Providers Near You can help you find the most convenient option for you. The CDC recommends getting a bivalent Pfizer (ages 12+) or Moderna vaccine (ages 18+) if it’s been two months or more since your last booster or vaccination.
