President Lee Lambert
Attendees at a brown-bag lunch with President Lee Lambert were expecting to get a glimpse of what the future holds for the college.

What they weren’t expecting was Lambert’s vision of how bright that future might be.

“There is tremendous opportunity in front of us,” Lambert said to about 40 people in the Quiet Dining Room in the Pagoda Union Building on campus. Another 20 people participated in the event Webcast via Elluminate.

“The Chinese character for crisis is the same as for opportunity.” Lambert acknowledged that with current pressures on higher education from the ongoing economic downturn, many people are scared. “We’re all scared, but that is an opportunity for those who don’t let their fear take hold of them so that they can’t move.
"Yes, things will look different, but we will be world-class by seizing the opportunities presented to us.”

To do that, Lambert said, hard realities must be acknowledged and the available technology must be embraced to continue to provide the quality education that is Shoreline’s reputation. “If we do that, we will be here at the turn of the next decade,” he said.
