Changes in Campus Outreach & Recruitment Structure

Dear Colleague, 

As part of our continued Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) efforts, there will be a change in the structure of the College’s outreach and recruitment work to improve incoming students’ experience as they engage, enroll, and onboard at Shoreline. 

After soliciting input from staff in these areas, a new Department of Outreach & Recruitment will be formed with existing staff as of February 22: 

  • Inez Olive, Outreach Recruiter, will become the lead for this area as Director of Outreach & Recruitment 
  • Russell Dorsey, Outreach and Recruitment Support Specialist 
  • Susie Schroeder, Recruitment & Enrollment Communications Specialist
  • Amy Stapleton, Outreach Recruiter 

The new team will report to Lisa Malik, Acting Dean of Access and Advising, and will continue to partner closely with Communications & Marketing and Workforce Education. The change will allow for greater internal coordination opportunities as students flow from recruiters, to Enrollment Services, Financial Aid, Advising, and other student service areas. 

No new positions were created in this process and salary adjustments for additional responsibilities were accomplished through savings from other position changes in the Office of Students, Equity & Success.

Message from Board Chair D’Ambrosio: Presidential Search

Dear Campus Community,

Many of you are already aware from President Roberts’ Monday (01 FEB 2021) message, that she has provided us with notice of her retirement, effective 30 JUN 2022.  This date coincides with the conclusion of Dr. Roberts’ current contract.

We are all deeply appreciative of Dr. Roberts’ (17 month) advance notice. This will hopefully afford the College sufficient time, necessary to conduct a thorough and conclusive nation-wide search for our next President.

Your Board of Trustees will be engaging with the SCC Campus Community in the coming weeks and months to articulate and define the Presidential search process and specify the qualifications necessary for a candidate to successfully serve as President of our College.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, it is my distinct honor to express our appreciation to President Roberts for her luminary and steadfast leadership, and her continuous dedication to our students -who have entrusted their education to SCC.

President Roberts has -during her seven-year tenure as SCC’s President consistently demonstrated an unwavering dedication to the entire campus community.  We are deeply appreciative for her perseverance through these most difficult times.

Finding a replacement to fill her shoes will be a sufficiently daunting task.  We are therefore all the more deeply appreciative of the ample notice President Roberts has provided us.

With best regards and our deep, abiding appreciation for your unwavering dedication to the College, and for the knowledge, erudition, skill and educational excellence that each of you bring to our college every day, we remain, sincerely yours,

Catherine Post D’Ambrosio, PhD, RN
Chair, Board of Trustees, Shoreline Community College

Message from the President: Sharing My Retirement Plans (June 30, 2022)

Dear Colleague,

After 41 rewarding years in higher education, (25 in community colleges), I am announcing my decision to retire. It is difficult to personalize an e-mail, but I want to say how privileged I have felt to serve the students, Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, and administrators at Shoreline Community College. The decision to retire was difficult with so many exciting projects ahead of us. However, given the need to begin refreshing our strategic plan, it seemed appropriate to be open and transparent that I will be retiring on June 30, 2022. This will allow the new president the opportunity to begin work as I did—engaging the campus and larger community in this important and focused work. We have much ahead of us with reopening the College, completing the capital campaign, continuing work on the major capital projects, implementing ctcLink, and all the student success initiatives supporting Guided Pathways. As always, I’m committed to moving these transformative efforts, forward.

Serving as a college president for over thirteen years has been the most enriching and inspiring experience of my career. It has allowed me to interact with students, faculty, staff, administrators, and community leaders and learn how our community colleges make a difference to each individual we serve. I have seen how community college partners work together to improve lives, improve livelihoods, and give hope to those who may not have experienced it previously. The past six years as President of Shoreline has been an incredible and rewarding experience and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity. 

I look forward to the work ahead of us!

With deep gratitude,

Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
