A message from Shoreline’s president Dr. Cheryl Roberts.
The new strategic plan for Shoreline Community College is nearing its final draft for presentation to our Board of Trustees in early 2016. In forming the plan, we have witnessed unprecedented participation from hundreds of members of our campus community. There have been thoughtful and rewarding conversations with both employees and students as well as with members of our broader local and business communities. Thank you for all the work you have done thus far to shape our future!
The Strategic Plan Task Force and the Executive Leadership Team will work through the remainder of the year to refine the goals and objectives of the plan. At the same time, we want to have a discussion about our current vision and mission statements. This will allow us to inform the Board of Trustees, which sets the vision and mission of the College, that our campus community has spent time reviewing the statements for any proposed modifications. The purpose is not to propose a new vision or mission, but to ask whether anything in the current vision and mission is out of alignment with the strategic goals as they have been revised following the group discussions during Opening Week.
Laura Rehrmann, Special Assistant to the President, will facilitate two meetings to discuss the vision and mission statements. In reviewing the vision and mission, you will see the draft strategic goals as they now stand. I hope that you will be able to attend one of these sessions:
- Thursday, November 12, 3:00–4:30 p.m., Room 1402
- Tuesday, November 17, 8:30–10:00 a.m., Room 9201
There will also be an opportunity to contribute online for those who cannot attend in person.
In early winter quarter, we will share the new strategic plan with the campus community one last time, prior to presentation to the Board of Trustees. Then the work begins to join together in implementing our preferred future over the next five years.
Thank you again for your valuable participation as our strategic plan is developed. We are nearing the finish line!
Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
