Shooting reported at Michigan State University campus

On behalf of Shoreline Community College, we wanted to reach out to the campus community to express our concern for students, faculty, staff, and family members who may be impacted by the recent event that unfolded at Michigan State University.  

We are devastated by another senseless act of violence in the form of a mass shooting. As a college community, we must not only stand with all members of the MSU campus community but take action against the consistent assaults on our communities.  We will continue to focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as a mechanism to achieve social justice for all. We are responsible for our community, let’s choose to lead with love.   

We recognize the trauma incidents such as these can have on our college community and want to remind all employees of the resources available to support you through this unfathomable time. Please do not hesitate to seek out services and should you see someone in need, please extend support.  

Please know that we have resources available to both students and employees to counsel you through any potential emotional distress from this event. 


Employees may access services and support at any time through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) at 877-313-4455 (as provided by the Diversity Equity Officers Commission). Their service is confidential and free. We urge you to keep this number readily available in the event you or a colleague need to lean into this level of support. The EAP is available and here for you, should you or a family member want or need support. As a reminder, the EAP offers the following:  

  • Problem assessment and short-term counseling  
  • Referrals to providers and community resources  
  • Webinars  
  • Resources  
  • Critical Incident Response  

Employees are also encouraged to contact Shoreline’s CARE team should you identify a student in need of support.  

Students may access the following services:   

  • International students who need support are also encouraged to reach out to the International Education department. 
  • If you are experiencing distress related to this, please reach out to the Counseling Center for support. 
  • In addition, for emergency counseling, referral, or assistance 24-hours/day and 7-days/week, please call:
