Wednesday, March 14th, 12-2 p.m., Tutt Library Event Space
This is a two-hour lunch-time session geared for both faculty and staff. In the first hour CC grants professionals Tess Powers, Ina Remus and Laura Hines will describe their respective roles on campus and how they serve as resources for the CC community. They will highlight some of the ways the CC community continues to benefit from grants awarded years ago as well as share information on some of the College’s most recent grants. The first hour will conclude with a “Top 10”-style countdown of some of the more common myths of the grants world. In the second hour, attendees will be invited to break into smaller groups to discuss projects/ideas/collaborations that might be suitable for an external grant; this is an opportunity to start brainstorming both for individual projects as well as for possible institutional efforts. Attendees will then spend some time exploring the College’s grants database, Pivot. Anyone with a general interest in grants is welcome – there no expectation that you will apply for a grant as a result of this session.

Mind and Body, the faculty – administration – support staff softball team, is now organizing for the spring SOFTBALL SEASON! The faculty, administrators and support staff get older each year, but the students stay the same age (like Peter Pan). Thus, we need NEW BLOOD, new sharp eyes, and new fluid muscles. Spouses and partners are eligible. If you are interested in playing this year, contact me shortly (bhochman@coloradocollege.edu), phone (632-5494), or contact Field Capt Heather Stapish (389-6420). Playing in the sunshine on the green grass against bright faced students is a great joy, to say the very least. Nothing is to be lost in these games save honor.
Bill Hochman, Prof. Emeritus of History, Manager Mind and Body, Founder of the League (60 years ago), Pitcher (long time passing)
