BOT Meeting Update

Dear Campus Community,

The Board of Trustees met for its annual summer retreat this past weekend.

New trustees (Mayss Al Alami ’17; Martha Wolday ’14; Kishen Mangat ’96; Liza Malott Pohle ’85; and Amy Louis ’84) were welcomed and sworn in, and outgoing trustees were recognized for their service to CC (Van Skilling ’55, P ’79, P ’82; Karen Pope ’70, P ’04James Lonergan ’16; Cole Wilbur; and Kalen Aquisto ’13).

The retreat’s agenda focused on our students and our mission of providing the finest liberal arts education. The trustees were deeply engaged in important conversations, including the alliance with the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, possible revisions to the student code of conduct, and campaign messaging.

I shared with the trustees updates on the continued implementation of our strategic plan and success in fundraising. Over the past year, the college received more than $40 million in new cash and pledges with approximately 6,000 alumni contributing.

The board approved several items during its Saturday business meeting, including:

  • Faculty promotions of four associate professors to full professors.
  • Several revisions to the faculty handbook (approved by the faculty this past spring).
  • Endorsed the alliance with the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and empowered the Executive Committee to approve final details on the agreement.

The trustees are excited about our continued success. Their next meeting will be on campus in November.

With warm regards,

Jill
