Results Achieved to Date

  • The team realized that it had more to discuss than just "family-friendly" policies. Members discovered a whole new area of the culture and climate that exists for faculty and staff colleagues and our student customers.

    The first idea to be implemented by the dean is to host a special strategic planning luncheon to give staff the opportunity to have a say, and exchange ideas, about the future of the success of the college.
