Effective August 1, 2022, forward, the Technology Support Services (TSS) Office will report to Bob Williamson in his role as acting Vice President for Business & Administrative Services. This change aligns the technological services of the College with Shoreline’s overall administrative operations. The same ticketing request process currently used to access TSS will remain unchanged. 

Acting TSS Director Gavin Smith will continue to attend Executive Team strategy sessions and other related meetings.  

“I look forward to working with the TSS team as Shoreline continues to enhance its technology and services, integrates technology into the design and construction of the new buildings coming online, and engages with the College’s overall strategic planning process.” Acting VP Williamson said. 

If you have questions or concerns regarding this change, please contact your supervisor.  

Dean of Access and Advising

The hiring committee held final interviews during the week of June 24th, 2022, for the Dean of Access and Advising. A final decision was made to offer the position to Chippi Bello. At the time of the offer, Ms. Bello held the role of director for the College’s AANAPISI grant.

Chitpasong Bello, affectionately known as Chippi, has more than 25 years of higher education experience in the private and public sectors, as well as community colleges and four-year institutions. She was previously an Associate Dean of Financial Aid at Clark College where she oversaw veterans services, student employment, scholarships, financial aid, and workforce education services. 

Currently, Chippi is the Director of the AANAPISI project and Acting Financial Aid Director at Shoreline. She comes to Shoreline with not only a wealth of experience in higher education – especially in the areas mentioned above – but also with personal experiences that help her see students’ perspectives. She is a proud refugee from the country of Laos, where her family escaped in the early 1980s. They faced many challenges as United States immigrants, and Chippi recognizes those challenges as privileges to help others. 

The College will begin immediate recruitment for the new director for the AANAPISI program.

From D. Bryant, Payroll Manager: AUDIT YOUR LEAVE AMOUNTS for July and August


Do you have questions about this email?   Send all questions to payroll@shoreline.edu

It was discovered today that if you submitted vacation/sick/etc. requests prior to your summer schedule change, ctcLink is not updating the number of hours reported for your leave.

Did you enter a leave request for July and August in ctcLink before your summer schedule was updated? If you did then you will need to cancel the request and resubmit the request, so the correct hours are reported for your leave. Not sure how to do this?  Check out this webpage.

Please email payroll@shoreline.edu if you have any questions,

Delene Bryant
