Day and Time

Friday, April 24th, 2020

8:30AM - 4:30PM

This year’s theme: What is Inclusion? 

The annual Day of Learning serves to provide time for intentionality, reflection, and a renewed commitment to support and value every member of our community – particularly those who are often marginalized. Our goal for this year’s Day of Learning is to improve knowledge and skills around implementing inclusive practices across campus by revisiting our Community Standard, exploring how interpersonal, group, and systemic interactions promote or deny inclusion, and empowering one another to enact change.

Community Standard Statement

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly…”

—Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Shoreline Community College is a place for students, employees, and the community to pursue excellence in education in an environment dedicated to equity, inclusiveness, and self-reflection. We value respectful, dynamic interactions and lively discussion. We strive to create an environment where everyone is supported and valued. Shoreline Community College does not tolerate hateful, violent, or discriminatory actions that target any person or group based on their beliefs, customs, identity, or affiliations. When one of us is diminished, all of us are diminished.

Event schedule

Will be posted in Spring Quarter

Note: All full time employees are expected to attend. If you have conflicts please contact your supervisor. 

Request for Proposals

The DEI Learning Team invites colleagues across campus to join us in leading sessions. Any employee can submit a proposal; we welcome all passionate proposals. If a proposal is selected, there will be opportunities to refine and revise the session design. 
Compensation and Support  
Faculty and Classified Staff facilitators will be paid an hourly rate for leading their sessions at the Day of Learning.  (Contact Brigid Nulty for specifics.)
Facilitators do not need to be an expert on their proposed session topic; we are simply asking for proposals from employees who are passionate or curious about an issue related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Learning Team can provide some support to employees who want help in designing their session. 
Proposal elements

Note: This is not a complete list. We have assembled example proposals for inspiration.
