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. 


Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
