Campus Updates 4/21/23

Good morning, folks—this one will be a short intro on my end. 

Ransomware and our recovery project are of course the bulk of everyone’s work these days. It’s great to see Wi-Fi coming back online, and lots of other campus improvements as well. We are still waiting for info from DELL on their recovery efforts but will report that as soon as we have it. Of course, again big thanks to TSS who have moved us along in the recovery process much faster than what I have heard from other institutions in similar situations. 

While busy this week, I was able to make some events and community connections that I think will both assist the college as we move forward, and that also highlight the great work already happening here. Tenzin Tsundue was on campus last week reading from his new book “Nowhere to Call Home.” The presentation included a bit of Tibetan history, beautiful poetry, and inspiring words and camaraderie. Thank you so much to Dr. King, and team for hosting this wonderful speaker. 

On Sunday, Samira Pardanani and I met with members of the Nepal Seattle Society. We are so pleased language and culture classes are offered on our campus, and look forward to future partnerships aiming to preserve culture for our Nepalese community 

Finally, I had the opportunity to meet with the North Urban Human Services Alliance. I learned a bit about their vision, and what they offer to the community. We discussed the importance of their work on areas of retention for our students, and ways we might work together in the future. I will be bringing some folks together to discuss possibilities with them so if that’s your area of interest please let us know. 

In other news, I was thinking the other day that sadly I have not advanced my personal gardening projects here at all. I am wondering how folks are doing on theirs and what April crops look like so far? Let me know! 

Have a great weekend!
