Diversity Week Educates All Who Attend

Five days of events inform students of the real meaning of multiculturalism

Diversity is important. Having a variety of cultures to draw from offers a college differing perspectives and a better vision of how the world looks outside the campus bubble.

However, simply surrounding oneself with styles, languages, and trends unknown will not help a person grow in knowledge — at least not significantly. One must engage to understand. After all, we must speak to be heard, and listen to hear.

SCC Says Goodbye to Wordsmith

Ed Harkness leaves the busy life of teaching to relax in retirement.

Some say poetry is a dying art form, but this isn’t the case for English instructor Ed Harkness. By the end of spring quarter, however, Harkness will be retiring from teaching at SCC.

Among the numerous literature classes he leads, Harkness says his most enjoyable would have to be intro-to and advanced poetry sessions.

Graduating from the University of Montana, Harkness studied under famous poet Richard Hugo before coming to teach at Shoreline Community College.
