Visioning Exercises - Your Help Needed

November 2, 2012

Dear Staff Colleagues,

In recent months, a series of visioning exercises has been conducted with the Board of Trustees, the Cabinet and the faculty to help us begin thinking about our institutional priorities. I would also like your input.

Below, you will find a link to a survey that includes four questions. The first three questions ask you to prioritize how the college should best use a fictitious gift of $100 million. In the first two questions, the gift is invested in the endowment, which allows the college to increase its annual operating budget by $5 million. Question three asks you to spend the entire $100 million on facilities and infrastructure. The fourth question is designed to identify your aspirations for Colorado College by having you construct the college's profile for the year 2025. CC's current profile, as well as those from five other liberal arts colleges, are provided as examples.

The point of these visioning exercises is to gather input from various community members about priorities. The results of the exercises will be shared later after the results have been analyzed. The various options listed under each question are not intended to be the only ones, but rather suggestions to help us think broadly. 

Thank you in advance for your participation. The survey will be open until the end of Block 3.


Best regards,




Questions regarding the survey can be sent to Lyrae Williams
