Campus Updates 02/02/23


Good afternoon all- hope your week is off to a great start. I wanted to thank everyone who came out to the challenges and accomplishments meeting last week. It was great to see so many people on ZOOM engaged with the community. There were a couple questions in CHAT from that meeting which I will post at the end of this message. I also did my monthly video update this week- if you haven’t seen it – you can see it here

I also want to thank VP Melanie Dixon & Aisha Hauser for taking us through a healing space this week with a specific focus on the impact of the horrible brutality that Tyre Nichols recently suffered. We also discussed gaps at this institution that need to be addressed to do DEI work. There will be additional healing spaces in the near future if you were unable to join. 

In addition, this week I had a great meeting with Guru Dorje who works through King County as an Administrator/Director CECO programming here at Shoreline. Guru has a wonderful vision and I expect to continue to learn from him and work with Dean John Molinaro and others on great projects to serve the community! 

ET is continuing our intercultural communication training this week and specifically focused on onboarding our new colleague as VP of DEI. The two-hour training was helpful as we thought through how we would work together and prioritize DEI work across the college, not in silos. 

I hope you all are well. Next week I am off to DC to continue to advocate for staff and faculty and legislation that supports our system. I will fill you in when I return. Thanks for all you do.
