Committee Update: Keeping you informed

December 14, 2011

The Planning Committee met yesterday (12/12/2011) as we have on Mondays since the end of September. We focused our attention mainly on preparation for the January 18 Convocation which will be a presentation to the Earlham Community about Earlham’s strategic planning process and where we are in it. The convo will include information about what we can learn from Earlham’s previous strategic plans, external trends and research we need to be aware of, and at least a few ideas that hold promise for a thriving and vibrant Earlham. 

 We also continued our discussion of information gathered during  consultations with various groups on-campus. In the past week, members of the Committee met with: Fine Arts faculty, Humanities faculty, All Staff Meeting, and Social Science faculty. Previously, we met with Student Senate, College Conference (administrative faculty), and Science Division faculty. More consultation sessions are planned during and following the holiday break. Our next meeting is with administrative faculty on Wednesday (12/14/2011).

 We reviewed and approved the Committee’s new presence on the College website, blog, Facebook, and Moodle. We invite you to follow and contribute to the planning process through these resources, or by contacting any of us directly. 

 What bold, distinctive, and compelling ideas do you have for Earlham?

As always, members of the Committee are eager to hear your thoughts.

For the Planning Committee, Ray Ontko
