Day of Learning Follow-Up: Survey and Session Archives

Shoreline Staff and Faculty,

Thank you to all those who attended and participated in today’s Day of Learning! We hope that the discussions and sessions you engaged in will help spark or further the DEI work that is needed here at Shoreline and in our community. We are also interested in hearing from you and improving the Day of Learning for next year, so please fill out our DOL Feedback Survey.

Although sessions were not recorded, we do have presentations and other session materials available on our SharePoint Session Archive page. Please feel free to access session materials there for those you attended or wanted to attend.

I want to give a special thanks to all of our presenters, room monitors, the DEI Learning Team, and all of the Shoreline employees that helped us set up and navigate the day. It has been an honor to work alongside them.

Thank you everyone for attending and continuing this work in your daily lives!

Important Reminders for Day of Learning on Friday

Dear Colleague,

Our Day of Learning (DOL) is this week! We are eagerly anticipating seeing everyone on Friday as we gather virtually for a full day of learning, growth, reflection, and community. Here are some reminders as we prepare for this day:

Sign Up for Morning & Afternoon Sessions

As a reminder, if you have not done so already, please sign up for one morning session and one afternoon session before Friday:

  • Visit the DOL SharePoint site to view the schedule and review the “Day of Learning Sessions” section at the bottom of the page.
  • Click on the morning session you wish to attend; click on the “Reserve a seat for this session” link, choose a session time, enter your name and email address, then click the “Book” button

Reflection Sessions

After the morning and afternoon sessions, there will be a short break followed by a 30-minute reflection session to talk, decompress, discuss, and reflect on the information covered in the main session. We strongly encourage you to participate in these reflections to enhance the richness of each session. After each main session concludes, please remain in the Zoom room or use the same Zoom link to return to the room after a break. 

You can bookmark the DOL Intranet page to easily find all of the information and resources as we prepare for this day. Looking forward to sharing space with everyone to build community, grow, and adapt!

Sexual Assault Awareness Month Resources & Workshops April 21-28

Every 73 seconds a person in the United States is sexually assaulted. Research shows that survivors of sexual assault face an increased risk of depression, PTSD, substance abuse and self-harm – all significant barriers to success in school, in the workplace, and in all other areas of life.
Sexual assault affects all of us, directly and indirectly. We can all do something to help:

• Be an active bystander. If you see someone at risk of being harmed, do something – intervene directly (if it’s safe to do so), create a distraction or enlist the help of others to interrupt the situation.

• Support survivors. It is hard to know what to say when someone tells you they have been sexually assaulted. The most important things you can do are listen with compassion, withhold judgement, and assist them in finding resources that will provide the help they need.

• Report sexual assault involving members of the SCC community to the Title IX Coordinator. Submit a report online, or email TitleIXCoordinator@shoreline.edu.

Deadline Extended for Commencement Survey!

The survey will now close at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, April 14. If you haven’t already provided your input, please do so today!

Hello! The Commencement 2021 Committee is hard at work planning this year’s ceremony which will take place on Saturday, June 19th. 

This year, our Commencement ceremony will be hosted virtually, and will either be pre-recorded or presented in real time. We are also exploring the possibility of hosting an additional socially-distanced drive-thru celebration around one of our campus parking lots. Precautions, such as the use of face masks, would be taken to reduce risk to all participants in adherence with local, state, and federal health guidelines.  

As we embrace this opportunity to center the achievements and voices of our 2021 graduating class, we would like to invite faculty and staff to respond to two brief questions (<2 min. to complete) about our proposed options for Commencement 2021. All responses will be collected anonymously. Your feedback will help guide us in our planning and is greatly appreciated!  (Students also received an invitation to participate in a student version of this survey.)

Please contact the Students, Equity, & Success Division at vp-ses@shoreline.edu with any questions about this survey.
