The Board of Trustees had its annual retreat last week. The retreat’s agenda was focused on our mission of “providing the finest liberal arts education,” the continued implementation of the strategic plan, and the comprehensive fundraising campaign.
The board approved several items during its Friday business meeting, including:
Colorado College Bylaw changes pertaining to governance (Section 1.1 C) and the Buildings, Grounds, and Infrastructure Committee (Section 1.4 G.5).
Title IX required policy changes.
Promotion from associate professor to full professor for Tracy Coleman, Religion; Aju Fenn, Economics and Business, and Esther Redmount, Economics and Business.
Changes to Part Two of the Faculty Handbook pertaining to recruitment procedures for hiring candidates with tenure (IV.C and D); criteria for tenure (VII.A.2) and changes to unpaid non-medical leave policy (XII.C); Changes to Part Three of the Faculty Handbook pertaining to faculty executive committee (V.A.1) (All changes were approved at the Block 6 and 7 faculty meetings).
Approval of Mass Design Group as the architect for the East Campus Housing project.
