You Matter!

From the Shoreline Community College Counseling Center.

With the recent death of Washington State University athlete Tyler Hilinski, our hearts and thoughts are with Tyler’s family and the WSU community. The Counseling Center staff want to remind students and employees You Matter!

Suicide is preventable. Feelings of hopelessness, isolation, loneliness, anger, and believing there are no other options are all things that can improve with help and support. There are ways to cope that are not as permanent as suicide.

There are campus and community resources available for people who may be experiencing thoughts of suicide:

Reminder: aSAP proposals for 2018-19 are due Feb. 2, 2018

Your project should go through the aSAP process if:

1. Your request is for permanent classified or exempt positions. You need to go through the aSAP process, even if the work being done is operational. (Note: Decisions about faculty positions are made through a separate process. Please contact your unit administrator with questions about new faculty positions.)
2. Your request is over $50,000. You should go through the aSAP process because this is a substantial investment and the background required by the application process is valuable.
3. Your request is for something that is a change in process or a new idea that will benefit your department and aligns with the goals and objectives of the strategic plan.

If you need assistance developing this year’s aSAP proposal, consider attending the live training time noted below (also noted on the Employee Calendar):
January 18, 2018 11 a.m. – noon, Room 2346

General Instructions for completing the aSAP proposal can be found on the Strategic Planning and Budget Committee homepage.
