Message from President Roberts: Statement on My Retirement Timeline

Dear Colleague,

For personal reasons, I was open to moving my retirement date to the end of this academic year. The Board of Trustees took action on my contract at their May 4th meeting to set an end date of June 30, 2021. I greatly appreciate everything the Board has done for the College and me, and I especially appreciate Board Chair D’Ambrosio’s kind words for me at the meeting. 

My focus before I retire this summer is on preparing for a successful transition of leadership and ensuring the College is poised to continue the work of serving our diverse students. Shoreline is a special place and it’s been an honor to be a part of this community and to serve as president for the past six years. 

Respectfully,

Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.

President

Updates to President Roberts’ Retirement Plan Timeline

President Cheryl Roberts previously announced her intention to retire as of June 30, 2022, however her term will now end earlier than anticipated, on June 30, 2021. 

The Shoreline Community College Board of Trustees took action to establish an earlier contract separation date at a special meeting on Tuesday, May 4, 2021. The Trustees expressed their gratitude for President Roberts’ service and leadership at the College, and the Board Chair, Dr. Catherine D’Ambrosio, read a draft resolution to acknowledge her many accomplishments at Shoreline to date. 

The draft resolution states in part, “The Shoreline Community College Board of Trustees hereby recognizes Dr. Cheryl L. Roberts for her vision, leadership both inside the College as well as the broader community of legislators and elected officials, her erudition and academic excellence in leading Shoreline Community College and in forging the College’s path into the future and with a heart for equity, diversity and inclusion, writing the introduction to our next chapter.” 

President Roberts will continue to serve in her role as president of the College through June 30, 2021, however there may be some intermittent periods where she will take personal leave time. During those times, a temporarily designated administrator in charge (AIC) will be named. 

The Board of Trustees anticipates appointing an acting or interim president by June 30, 2021, and the College’s Executive Team will work closely with President Roberts to ensure a seamless transition plan is in place. 

UPDATE AS OF MAY 14, 2021:

At the Friday, May 14 Board of Trustees public meeting, the Board took formal action to pass Resolution No. 162 “Commending Service of President Cheryl Roberts,” which was first read at the Tuesday, May 4 meeting.
