Land Acknowledgment

We would like to acknowledge that Shoreline Community College sits on the traditional land of the Duwamish People, past and present. The College grounds once served as a special place for gathering traditional foods in ways that increased the bounty of the land, and we are called to continue that stewardship as we write the next chapter of our College.

Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is a five-member board that is appointed by the Governor of the State of Washington and confirmed by the Washington State Senate. The role of the Board is to oversee all operations of the College.


Shoreline Community College is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (8060 165th Avenue North East, Suite 100
