    Response to a Bias Incident Report

    Dear Colleague,

    On Friday, October 18, a student discovered a racially offensive sticker on the Career Education Options (CEO) job bulletin board in the Workforce office that referred to diversity and white genocide. The sticker was reported to CEO staff, immediately taken down, and given to Safety & Security for investigative purposes.

    As our Community Standard Statement declares, we do not tolerate hateful, violent, or discriminatory actions that target any person or group based on their beliefs, customs, identity, of affiliations. While our College respects and protects freedom of speech, we also affirm the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion, and are steadfastly committed to providing a welcoming and secure environment for all members of our community.

    We ask for your assistance in helping us to identify if any other materials of this nature are found anywhere on campus. Shoreline maintains an active Bias Response Team dedicated to reviewing and responding to incidents like this. Please report any and all bias incidents using our bias incident reporting form.

    Offensive materials such as this sticker can bring up many feelings for people. If you are in need of support, please know we offer resources to students through the Counseling Center (FOSS Building 5000, Room 5251) and to employees through the Employee Assistance Program.

    Shoreline is unwavering in its resolve to create an inclusive, diverse and welcoming community, and incidents such as this will not deter us from this important work. We can and will work together to find the best in each other, to bridge our differences, and to treat each other with the respect and kindness that all people deserve.

    Get ready for the Great Washington Shakeout Thurs., Oct. 17th

    Dear Colleague,

    The annual October event, The Great ShakeOut, has become part of the Shoreline Community College culture with staff, faculty, and students participating annually. This year’s shakeout event is on Thurs., Oct. 17th  at 10:17 a.m.

    The ShakeOut has been an excellent awareness tool for encouraging all departments on our campus to prepare for emergencies and disasters. This year, areas of the U.S. were severely impacted by hurricanes and wildfires, and our Pacific Northwest region can also be potentially impacted by a different natural hazard threat: earthquakes. So please remember to Drop, Cover, & Hold On.

    This year Shoreline Community College will be participating in this worldwide earthquake preparedness awareness effort by testing a classroom alert notification system called LYNX. All smart classrooms on campus have a LYNX software program enabled and located on the instructor’s main computer. The LYNX system will allow Shoreline Emergency Management team members to send an alert communication inside the classrooms via projection screen. Once the LYNX message has been received, instructors can easily clear out of the screen by pressing the escape button. If you are interested in how LYNX alert system works, please view the LYNX training video posted on CANVAS.


    The ShakeOut for this year is scheduled for October 17th, 2019 at 10:17 a.m. Everyone on campus is encouraged to participate.

    What to Do:

    At Shoreline, college officials suggest three things to get ready for the Great Washington Shakeout drill:

    #1. Read the plan
    – Go to to see Shoreline’s emergency preparedness information and the Emergency Management Response plan.
    – Go to

    #2. Make sure you that you are signed up to receive the campus RAVE ALERT messages
    – Go to to add phone numbers and additional email accounts to your message preferences

    #3. Do the drill on Oct. 17th at 10:17 a.m.

    If it is appropriate for where you are:
    – DROP to the ground
    – Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table
    – HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops

    In addition, demonstrations of Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) and Stryker evacuation chairs will take place from 11:00 a.m-12:30 p.m., on Thursday, Oct. 17th, in the main lobby of 9000 Building.

    Remember, the LYNX message will only be a test.
