Thurs., May 25, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Room 1010(m) Boardroom

*This is part of the Great Discussion series, which requires registration. See details below.

Major internal conflict has plagued Afghanistan for four decades. The U.S., for its part, has conducted military operations in the country nearly continuously since 9/11. Today, war with the Taliban persists, and tensions between the U.S. and Pakistan have gradually deteriorated. As his time in office drew to a close, President Obama limited further withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. The incoming administration has a choice: will it maintain the status quo, completely reverse the Obama administration drawdown or withdraw completely? Does the U.S. face a no win situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan?

Format:
6:30 – Video background report (compliments printed briefing paper provided in advance)*
7:00 – Remarks by guest
7:30 – group discussion

*Videos and Briefing papers provided by the Foreign Policy Association.

Are you interested in an on-campus job where you can help others and keep your classroom skills and knowledge fresh?

If so, please consider applying to become a tutor for Tutoring Services!

Tutoring Services is seeking qualified tutors to support students’ needs for the 2017-18 academic year (starting in the Summer 2017 quarter). To qualify for an interview, applicants should:

  • have at least a 3.5 or an instructor recommendation (forms available) in the courses to be tutored and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above.
  • have a strong desire to help others’ learning processes with professionalism and patience!
  • carefully fill out our application, including brief but thoughtful responses to the two questions at the end.

We do our best to provide tutors to students in ANY course offered at Shoreline Community College, from accounting to visual communications technology, so we are interested in tutors across the curriculum. Most recently, we have struggled to meet the student demand in areas such as business technology, geography, nursing, statistics, and a wide variety of 200-level STEM courses.

Tutoring Services welcomes and encourages both domestic and international student applicants, and we strive to employ tutors who represent the diversity of SCC’s student population. There is a hiring process for all applicants, which can take time as it moves from the initial application, to an interview, to paperwork, to HR processing and activation. Qualified domestic students who are interviewed and offered a position might start three or more weeks from their date of application. Given the month+ timeline for acquiring a social security card through completing new hire paperwork, qualified international students often have a longer wait to start actively tutoring. Because of the time this hiring process takes, we are particularly interested in those who will be able to tutor more than one quarter, but we consider all qualified applicants.

Questions? Contact us in person in 4228 (Library), by email (pttutors@shoreline.edu), or by phone (206-546-4776).

Thank you for considering Tutoring Services!
