Exciting Campus Housing Updates

As construction on the student residence hall rapidly progresses, students and families are increasingly eager to receive more information. We’ve published a new housing web page to provide some basic details about amenities and occupancy. This page will be updated in winter 2019 with more specific pricing and leasing information.

You can help spread the word about this exciting new addition to our campus by directing any interested individuals to fill out the interest form on the web page.

This month, the College will also welcome Sundi Musnicki as the new Director of Student Leadership and Residential Life, who will provide leadership to the residential life programming in the new building. Sundi brings over 11 years of student affairs experience, including in housing and residence life, in Oregon, Idaho, and Washington. Sundi’s first day at Shoreline will be Monday, November 19.

Message from President Roberts: Midterm Election Results

Dear Colleague, 

The U.S. midterm election this week has generated a large amount of civic engagement and the passionate exchange of many viewpoints.

As a community of diverse people, we at Shoreline value opportunities to both share our own points of view and allow others to express theirs. As a public community college, we are obliged to both uphold the right to free speech and expression, and affirm our identity as a respectful and inclusive learning community.

As always, we want our campus to remain a place of open inquiry and learning, modeling the ideals set out in our Community Standard. While we may sometimes be uncomfortable with differing points of view, we have a common standard to hold these conversations in a respectful manner.

If you know of any students who are feeling anxious or stressed about the current political climate, please encourage them to reach out to our Counseling Center for support (206-546-4594, FOSS Building). Counseling services are also available to Shoreline employees via the Employee Assistance Program (877-313-4455). Please also know that our Safety & Security team is aware that members of our campus community may be feeling a heightened sense of concern, and is maintaining a proactive presence on the campus.

I encourage each of us to listen, look, and actively participate in respectful dialogue that will help us learn together, as a community.


Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.


Veterans Day Message from President Roberts

Dear Colleague,

As we observe Veterans Day on November 12, we have an opportunity to thank our nation’s veterans for their service to our country. Many veterans study, teach, and work alongside us here at Shoreline Community College. They enrich our college and we are grateful for their contributions to this country and to our campus community.

On this holiday, I hope you will join me in taking time to reflect on the contributions and sacrifices of all of our veterans, as well as those who continue to serve.

With appreciation,
Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
