SCC recognized for International programs

Shoreline Community College was recently recognized by NAFSA: Association of International Educators for its campus-wide internationalization efforts, earning a “Spotlight Mention” as part of the 2007 Senator Paul Simon Award for Campus Internationalization.

The college won in part for its International Programs Advisory Committee, a grant-awarding body of faculty, staff, administrators and a student representative. IPAC grants support study abroad programs.

The college also won for its strong international emphasis, as reflected in Study Abroad programs, international student retention efforts, eight levels of English as a Second Language, and its High School Completion program for international students.
