Upcoming Changes to the Website

Greetings,

The Program Navigation Work Group has been working steadily with many members across the campus community to prepare new web pages related to our instructional programs, degrees, and certificates. We want to make sure you know we’ll be launching these new pages on the site shortly, and that our web support team will have limited availability over the next few weeks to work on other site maintenance changes or requests outside of this project.

Launch Date:

  • Sunday, May 5, 2019

What Will Change:

  • Instructional program, degree, and certificate web pages will be replaced with new templates and improved content
  • New academic department pages
  • New interactive “Browse All Degrees & Certificates” page
  • New main landing pages for Explore Programs, Transfer Programs, Prof-Tech Programs, and Online Learning

How this will Improve the Website:

  • All degrees and certificates will have consistent pages, featuring information prospective students most want to know
  • Visitors will be able to do a filtered search of all of our offerings to quickly find what they’re looking for
  • Visitors will be able to easily compare offerings across prof-tech and transfer areas
  • Transfer options will be more clearly defined and surfaced
  • Multiple entry points and flexible navigation will allow visitors to discover the breadth of our offerings

Questions?

  • If you have questions about the names of our academic offerings, please contact the dean in the corresponding division
  • If you have questions about the new pages, please contact websupport@shoreline.edu

Thank you,

The Program Navigation Work Group

9th Annual Einstein Middle School Campus Tour

9th Annual Einstein Middle School Campus Tour

375 (yes, 375!) 8th graders from our local middle school, along with 30 teachers and parents will experience our beautiful campus and programs during a tour on Friday morning at 9:15 a.m. They’re only here for an hour, so it’s a fun, quick whirlwind view of our College, followed by a visit to UW. The principal tells us that the teachers and students love this tour, even more than UW.

It’s amazing how many local high school students visit our campus throughout their elementary and middle school years (for Math Olympiad, STEM Festival, the Einstein trip), and then enroll here as college students.

Say hi to this crowd of 8th graders Friday morning if you have an opportunity! If you have questions, please contact Amy Stapleton (astaplet@shoreline.edu, ext. 7841).

Shoreline in the news, winter quarter 2019

In case you missed any of these articles in the news, here is a roundup of local media stories Shoreline was featured in during winter quarter 2019:

College identity and marketing resources

Looking for the new college identity standards? Need to request website support, graphic design help, promote your program or event, or get a message out to campus?

Communications & Marketing has launched a new web page for employees, designed to be a one-stop resource for campus communications and marketing services. The page will be updated and developed with more information over time, so please bookmark it and check back often:

For questions, please contact Martha Lynn, Executive Director of Communications & Marketing (mlynn@shoreline.edu).

New Day At A Glance format

Based on employee feedback from this year’s Convocation, the Day At A Glance (DAAG) daily email has been streamlined into three sections to ensure faculty and staff can more easily find relevant information:

Recent Announcements – You’ll find the most recent “news you can use” at the top of the email, with a link to “see all announcements” if you want to read more campus news. Note that this section will no longer list events – you’ll find all campus event information in the three sections below.

College Calendar – Upcoming campus events will be listed here and will drop off the list once they’ve occurred. You can also click on the “see all college events” button to see additional calendar events.

Employee Calendar – Here you’ll see upcoming internal events that are geared to faculty and staff (such as Campus Updates or professional learning opportunities)

To submit information to the calendar, DAAG, or Shoreline Today (the blog for current students), please use the online submission form.

We hope these formatting changes to the existing Day At A Glance email will better inform staff and faculty about campus happenings. In the coming months, we’ll conduct a survey to assess how the new format is working for you. Please let us know if you have any questions about the new layout.

Thank you,
Communications & Marketing
