Shoreline Community College President Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D., has joined the board of directors of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). 

The board voted unanimously to certify the results of the 2020 Board Election on Thursday, June 4, during a Zoom meeting.

Roberts joined seven other newly elected board members for a three-year term beginning July 1, 2020 and ending June 30, 2023.

“Shoreline Community College is seen as a national leader because of its highly acclaimed professional-technical and academic programs. 
"Joining the AACC board is an opportunity to spotlight what is great about Shoreline and influence educational policy at the national level,” Roberts shared.

AACC is governed by a 32-member board of directors. The board acts on behalf of the institutional members to create and maintain a vision for AACC and to determine and ensure that the organization adheres to appropriate standards of performance. The board is committed to guaranteeing accountability of AACC to the membership.

The national election, held in February 2020, resulted in the election of six institutional members and two affiliated council members, all current community college CEOs. Roberts was one of 13 CEOs nominated in the institutional member category.

In response to Roberts’ election, AACC President and CEO Walter G. Bumphus said, 

“Dr. Roberts is a highly respected by her peers around the country, as evidenced by her election to a coveted position on the AACC board. I am confident that Dr. Roberts will represent and advocate for community colleges effectively on the national level. The AACC staff, current board members and I look forward to welcoming her to the board of directors.”
