Update - Summer 2014 Trustee Meeting
June 30, 2014
Dear Campus Community,
Last week, the Board of Trustees met for its annual summer meeting/retreat. During the meeting, the trustees participated in four primary sessions: (1) An Overview of the Academic Program; (2) Tutt Library Renovation - Results of the Programming Phase; (3) Colorado College's Competitive Position; and (4) Funding the Colorado College Campaign. I also delivered remarks that reflected on all that we have accomplished over the past three years, but more importantly, where we are headed.
While meeting, the trustees also approved several items:
- A new sexual harassment and misconduct policy. (This new policy combines three formerly separate policies: (1) Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, and Sexual Violence; (2) Anti-Discrimination; and (3) Notice of Non-Discrimination.)
- Changes to the Faculty Handbook pertaining to the FEC Restructure Proposal: Personnel Councils, as presented and approved at the Block 8 Faculty Meeting.
- Use of college funds which had been placed temporarily into the endowment, referred to as the "quasi-endowment," to help to fund the Colorado College Campaign.
The next trustee meeting will be in November 2014. Please let me know if you have any questions.
