Time to Pivot: An Update Following Convocation

January 30, 2012

The College Planning Committee met on Jan. 25. Those present shared excitement for the big turnout for last week’s convocation on planning. There was agreement that interest was high, but that people on campus especially now want to move from information gathering to seeing and hearing concrete proposals.

The committee is now ready to pivot in just that direction, now that the formal deadline for comments is past. It has divided itself into five subgroups: curriculum and academics, student life, cocurriculum, finance and budget, and data analysis. Each of these embraces a wide variety of subjects. We have heard from close to 150 faculty, students, staff, and alumni, who have contributed close to 1,000 different ideas and proposals.


For the Planning Committee, Tom Hamm
