Community Thought Questions

How can we position ourselves and the College to be able to (make) change easily and be comfortable with the change?

Does the College do something that should be done differently?

Does the College do something that isn’t related directly to the Mission?  Should this be eliminated?

Does the College duplicate efforts?  Duplicate expertise?

Does the College communicate well?

Does the College collaborate well?
