Building on the Block Events

Over the past month, I have been rolling out “The Colorado College Plan: Building on the Block” to the CC community. In late August, I presented the plan to our faculty and staff at Fall Conference, on the same day that the website went live. Last Monday, students gathered in East Rastall for a similar event.  Not only did Joel Begay (Student Trustee), Isaac Green (CCSGA President), and I get the chance to share the strategic plan with students, we also broke into discussion groups to dig deeper into the plan’s five recommendations.

In addition, over the past two weeks, I have had the pleasure of talking with alumni, parents and friends in NYC and Chicago about our plans. All of these discussions have been engaging and informative. Great ideas for implementation of the plan are emerging!

For those of you unable to attend an event, please check out the Building on the Block website at:
