See the story: "The Year of Listening"
President Jill Tiefenthaler gained many insights during her conversations with students, faculty, and staff on campus and over the course of visiting alumni and parents in cities around the country. She was interested in learning more about how CC is distinctive from other colleges in the U.S., as well as identifying areas for improvement and ideas that should guide us as we offer an outstanding liberal arts education to future generations of students. After analyzing the responses — more than 2,000 comments in all — she identified some common themes that will inform the planning work in the year ahead.
