Special Programs at Shoreline
The Center for Service Learning supports the development of meaningful service-learning opportunities that meet community-defined needs, enhance learning by integrating academic curriculum and service, and foster civic engagement, equity and a sense of social purpose.
Equity and Social Justice includes American Ethnic Studies, Gender & Women's Studies, and Multicultural Studies. Equity has to do with everyone, regardless of race, social class, and gender, having access to fair and equal treatment under the law. Social Justice extends the concept of equity to include human rights as part of the social contract.
The Global Pathways Program provides students with rich experience to broaden and deepen their understanding of today's global community.
The Honors Program is designed to offer a challenging curriculum for students planning to transfer to four-year institutions of higher learning or who simply wish to deepen their college experience.
