Events and News 

Well good evening everyone,

This past week has been really busy but more on the “internal” side of things.  I’ve been in my office in meetings, and doing emails a lot (likely as you have) and looking out my window enjoying the sunshine!  That is definitely something to celebrate. 

I wanted to sincerely thank everyone who participated in the Day of Learning this year.  I really felt like we balanced the right tone combining education and fun, delivering some important message along the way. Thank you so much to the team that developed the program and found ways for us to connect in various modalities in very meaningfully ways. Thank you to the funny-sock subcommittee (I’m kidding about the subcommittee 😊), the folks who rolled up their sleeves to work on SMART objectives and learning outcomes, and to those that met in strategic planning sessions.  I know we have a lot of work to do as well as some hurdles to overcome.  We are at a time where we take steps forward, then a bit backward, but always forward again.  As I said in the welcome, we will be making some changes this year that help significantly improve the College, and we will continue to evolve and improve.  I appreciate you all, and all that you do! 

Finally, I did have one opportunity for a community connection this week at City Hall.  I have been meeting regularly with the Chief of Police and Greg Cranson to plan projects, but I’m hoping to do so with other city partners, particularly in assisting the City (and SCC) in finding ways to demonstrate the City’s anti-racism resolution, creating tangible results that support students in the community.  We are already doing a lot of this great work through Workforce and other means (and a big thanks To Lauren and her team who were mentioned at the meeting!) but with some more structure and explicit goals, we could see some additional great things happen. 

Enjoy your week
