Reminder! Focus Session Invitation to students from President Roberts, Wed., Jan. 27

Dear Student,

As part of an ongoing effort to clearly define the College’s identity, our position in comparison to other Community Colleges, and to better communicate with our students and communities we serve, we have asked the Clarus Group to build upon their successful work conducted this past fall to increase enrollment and retain our students through to completion. Listening sessions are organized by constituency group. The schedule of sessions for students is as follows:

Wednesday, January 27:
10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the Admin bldg. (1000) Board Room 1010M

Thursday, January 28:
10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the Admin bldg. (1000) Board Room 1010M

Pizza will be served in each session and you may feel free to bring your lunch if you’d like. Student input is extremely important and will help us make our communication efforts more successful.

The sessions have been structured in such a way to allow you to voice your opinions about your impressions of the identity of the college in the community. The Clarus Group representative will visit with you about:

  • Descriptors of the College (both positive and negative)
  • Unique strengths of the College
  • Icons and images that best describe the College
  • Promises/expectations made by the College to the students and communities we serve
  • Competition for the College and misperceptions about the College – again both positive and negative

The results of these sessions will be used to convey the benefits the College provides to both the individual student and our communities as well as provide a consistent, integrated message of our College’s Vision and Mission. Other sessions include our faculty and employees, donors, alumni, transfer partners, business and community leaders, high school students, Board of Trustees and the Foundation Board of Directors.

Please reply to this posting with YES you will be able to attend or NO you will not be able to attend to We will send a reminder email prior to the listening session.

Thank you so much for your help and we look forward to seeing you at one of the sessions listed above.

Warm Regards,

Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D.
