Campus Updates 02/09/23


Good afternoon folks!  Hope all is going well.  I’m writing this update from Washington D.C. at the end of the National Legislative Summit.  It was great to be surrounded by passionate trustees, presidents, and students from across the country advocating for community colleges.  Shoreline Trustees and I were able to attend and represent in two meetings with Senator Murray and Maria Cantwell.   

Priorities for the team included: 

  • Improvements in WIOA reporting and enhancements overall.  
  • Growing the Strengthening Community College Training Grants program © Boosting funding for PELL, TRIO, GEARUP, and programs that support childcare.  There was a BIG PUSH for short-term Pell, which if passed, would allow PELL grants for shorter-term certificates and programs (which would be great for growing new opportunities at Shoreline).   
  • Priorities also included supporting the Dream ACT, funding HSIS, MSIS, and HBCUS and many other initiatives focused on basic needs, serving rural communities, and ending tax policies that hurt recipients of many aid programs.   

The energy was high! It was really interesting that we were at the Capitol on the day of the State of the Union.   

Toward the end of last week, I had another Professional Development opportunity.  I now meet quarterly with Eric, President of Cascadia College.  It has been helpful to learn more about shared concerns and strategies to resolve them.   

I also wanted to remind folks of the Buffalo Soldiers: Fighting on two Fronts event next week!  It’s going to be amazing—we just found out three actors/soldiers from the film will join the event.  Please come and enjoy a great evening with your students and friends!  Hope you all have an enjoyable rest of the week.
