Please join Amanda Udis-Kessler, Director of Assessment and Program Review, for an update on the life of the CC faculty as captured by responses to the 2016-2017 HERI Faculty Survey.
The HERI Faculty Survey provides institutions with a comprehensive, research-based picture of key aspects of the faculty experience. Since 1989 over 1,100 two-and four- year institutions have used results from this survey to connect faculty practices, values and priorities to institutional success and drive improvement efforts.

The HERI Faculty Survey is designed to provide institutions with actionable information on important and timely issues. It includes topics such as pedagogical practices, campus climate, faculty goals and expectations for students, research and service activities, sources of stress and satisfaction, and the connection between learning in the classroom and practices in the local and global community.

Attention parents…take a break from spring break…drop off the kids and enjoy a night out (or in) while they have their own fun playing games with the Tigers!

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee will host Parents Night Out and open El Pomar Sports Center from 4pm-9pm next Friday, March 30. They will be here playing games in the gym, board games and art projects in the Great Hall, pizza for dinner and a movie towards the end of the night. The event is open to any child, ages 3-15 (must be potty trained).

Parents Night Out is a fundraiser for SAAC. The cost is $30 for the first child and $15 for each additional child. Receive $5 off for bringing in 1 canned food item. Limit 1 canned food item per child.

If you are interested, please email aobringer@coloradocollege.edu by next Wednesday, 3/28.

This event is open to everyone (not just CC families) and we’d also like to ask for your help in spreading the word. Please forward this along to any and all that might be interested.

Hope you will join us!

I hope this note finds you well. Colorado College is hosting a national speech tournament (AFA-NIET) on April 7-9h on our campus this year and are in need of qualified judges for the preliminary rounds on Saturday and Sunday (7th-8th).

I am reaching out to staff and faculty members who have some experience in forensics but am also in need of ‘lay’ judges as well. I will be offering 3 training sessions in April to explain how the tournament works and answer any questions you may have.

Meals will be provided on both Saturday and Sunday. If you are interested and are able to commit to both days, AFA will pay $150, otherwise you will be paid per round.

If you are unable to help, but know someone who might be willing, please send their contact information to me.

Thank you!
–Sarah Hinkle, Speech Coach for Forensics & Debate
