Year of Planning--Suggest Your Initiatives (Alumni and Parents)
January 29, 2013
Dear Alumni and Parents,
We are making wonderful progress on our planning for CC's future! We now have our goals and it's time to suggest initiatives that will support these goals. On Friday, Jan. 18, more than 400 members of the CC community, including local alumni, faculty, students, staff, trustees, and members of the Colorado Springs community, participated in the Year of Planning Winter Conference. It was an exciting day as we thought about new ways to use the flexibility that the Block Plan affords us; possibilities to fully engage in our distinctive place and create an environment that better supports learning; ideas for extending our reach to new constituencies; and ways to become more effective as an institution.
The ideas and discussions that bubbled forth were inspiring, and the energy and enthusiasm on campus is contagious. You can watch some of the action and hear some ideas in my Block 5 welcome and Year of Planning update here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9866agcj70&feature=youtu.be
Now we want to hear from you! Please read through our new goals and send us your ideas for initiatives. Go to www.coloradocollege.edu/strategic planning, where you will find four questions, one for each area of emphasis. Please send your input by Feb. 28.
This is an important moment, as we plan for the next decade at Colorado College. Your participation is vital to our success.
