Shoreline Community College (SCC) is a dynamic and vibrant campus offering excellent academic, professional- technical, adult basic education and continuing education to meet the lifelong learning needs of its community. Located 10 miles north of downtown Seattle, Washington, Shoreline Community College is a scenic campus with 26 buildings nestled among native evergreens over 83 acres. The College is surrounded by an elementary school and middle to affluent community neighborhoods. SCC was established in 1964 and operates under the regulations of the Higher Education Coordinating Board (HECB) and the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) and is governed by the Board of Trustees (BOT) of Shoreline Community College, District Number Seven. President Lee Lambert serves as the seventh president for SCC (effective July 1, 2006) and is dedicated to the College vision of becoming a world-class leader in student success and community engagement.
SCC's mission focuses on three primary purposes that make up the essential focal areas. It reads, "We are dedicated to serving the educational, workforce and cultural needs of our diverse community." The core themes outline how the College manifests essential elements of its mission including 1) educational attainment and student success, 2) program excellence, 3) community engagement, 4) access and diversity, and 5) college stewardship.
Shoreline Community College was granted initial accreditation in 1966. Over its 45-year history, SCC has had successful compliance with its accrediting agency, the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). The last Full-Scale Evaluation was conducted in October 2002, followed by a Focused Interim visit conducted in 2004, and a Five-Year Interim Report in 2007 with a follow-up Progress Report on one recommendation in October 2009. The College has taken action on all recommendations resulting in the Commission's approval of progress for all previous recommendations. The last full-scale evaluation prior to October 2002 took place in 1992
Institutional Accreditation for Shoreline
Shoreline Community College has been continuously accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) since its initial accreditation in the 1960s. The College was founded in 1964 as part of the Shoreline School District and moved to its present site in 1966 when all community colleges in Washington State were transferred to a common State Board of Community and Technical Colleges. SCC's accreditation was most recently reaffirmed following a Five-Year Interim Visit in October 2007 which followed a Full-Scale Accreditation Visit in October 2002.
Recently we completed a progress report to Recommendation One as originally cited in the 2002 full scale visit and 2007 interim visit. SCC is currently drafting its Year one Report and working diligently on its self-study for the full scale report due in 2012.
