Mr. James Hong, Mr. Long Kim, Ms. Thoa Nguyen, and Dr. Christoph Giebel (moderator)

Compassion, Culture, Education

Local Action / Global Impact
Mayor Marilyn Strickland, City of Tacoma
Thursday, October 19, 2017, 7:00 – 8:30pm, Room 9208
The phrase “think global, act local” is a call to arms of local activism. It is probably most strongly associated with environmental issues, but has been used in many other policy realms as well, including trade, immigration, transportation, healthcare, and education. Mayor Marilyn Strickland argues that there has been a shift from national to local governments such as Tacoma in seeking progress on these issues.

Francisco Ivarra, Donna Lowery, Steve Marron, Bill Moore, Jordan Smith, and Derek Levy (moderator)
What have been the challenges faced by women and racial & ethnic minorities in the military over time and how have they overcome or otherwise dealt with these challenges?

This discussion is a collaboration between the GAC and Veterans Services at Shoreline Community College.

Cybersecurity: the New Frontier for Security Policy
Justin Collins, University of Washington, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, (Shoreline CC, 2015; JSIS, 2018)
Thursday, November 9, 2017, 12:30-1:20pm, Room 9208

He presented his research findings on the need for US-EU Transatlantic cybersecurity. Justin will share his personal story that took him from the U.S. military, Shoreline Community College, the UW Jackson School, and to Europe on his way to earning Associate and Bachelor degrees.

U.S.-Russia Relations: A New Cold War?

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 7:00- 8:30pm, Room 9208
U.S.-Russian relations seem to have reached a low point since the end of the Cold War in 1990. From confrontations in Europe and the Middle East, and accusations of Russian meddling in U.S. elections have produced a “tenuous” bilateral relationship. Is it the new/old normal?

To facilitate the needs of students and their families in preparation for the start of Fall quarter, parking on campus will be free Sept. 18 – 27. No fees are required to park Sept. 18 – 27, and no citations will be issued for not paying parking fees. We ask that visitors to campus do still park in the appropriate parking areas during this period of free parking. If you or anyone you know still need to register for classes, this is a great time to take advantage of the free parking and come on down to campus to get registered now!

Late registration has been proven to have a negative impact on a student’s ability to be successful in a course. Because Shoreline Community College is committed to student success, the College is making a significant change to the timeline for adding classes after the quarter begins. Beginning Fall Quarter 2017, students may add classes through the first five instructional days of the quarter only.

Fall 2017 dates:
Wednesday, September 27 – First day of classes
Tuesday, October 3 – Last day to add classes, last day to register online
Tuesday, October 10 – Last day for late enrollment, Petition for Late Enrollment required

Adding a class during the second week of the quarter is now considered “late enrollment.”* Late enrollment will be permitted only in rare and unusual circumstances. Requests will require a Petition for Late Enrollment form be submitted to the instructor, and will be allowed only by special permission from the course instructor and the division dean. The deadline for late enrollment will be the last day of the second week of the quarter. For Fall Quarter 2017, the last late enrollment date will be Tuesday, October 10.

*Exceptions to the quarterly late-enrollment timeline will include:

  • Enrollment into late starting and continuous enrollment courses
  • Section changes (with instructor approval)
  • Re-registration after drop for non-payment (with instructor approval)
  • Registration using the state employee or senior citizen tuition waiver (with instructor approval).

Wed., Sept. 20 is the last day to register for the free DACA Renewal Legal Clinic and Q&A being held on Everett Community College’s campus Fri., Sept. 22 from 6-9 p.m. at the Jackson Conference Center located at 2000 Tower Street in Everett, WA.

We are encouraging DACA recipients whose document is expiring between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 to register for this legal clinic via email to Giselle Cárcamo at gcarcamo@ipjc.org by September 20 so we can set the time of their appointment.

A message from the organizers of the free DACA legal clinic:


Dear community members, providers, and partner organizations:

Responding to a community need for organizing a DACA-related event in Snohomish County, the Intercommunity Peace & Justice Center has reached out to our partners at the Washington Dream Coalition (WDC), Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP), Colectiva Legal del Pueblo and the Washington State Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) to assist DACA recipients who qualify for renewal in this underserved area.

Everett Community College has generously offered space and resources for us to host a free DACA Renewal Legal Clinic and Q&A that will take place on Friday, September, 22 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at Everett Community College, Jackson Conference Center located at 2000 Tower Street Everett, WA 98201.

We hope to reach out to young adults in Snohomish and Skagit counties to participate in the legal clinic, but any DACA recipients will be welcomed until we reach capacity.

This event will be two-fold: while lawyers are assisting DACA recipients with their paperwork, members of the Washington Dream Coalition and Colectiva will give important updates and provide resources on continuing education and organizing for action to community members interested in the topic that are not necessarily participating in the clinic.

We are encouraging DACA recipients whose document is expiring between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 to register for this legal clinic via email to Giselle Cárcamo at gcarcamo@ipjc.org by September 20 so we can set the time of their appointment.

All the very best,
