It seems the college intends to make cuts in programs, and that will definitely affect members of staff, as well as faculty and students. This intention is explicit in the 5 year strategic plan, and the hiring of consultant, Robert C. Dickeson, who is an expert in the elimination of academic programs.
While we support the stated mission of the college , our own mission, however, is to advocate for our members, and to ensure due process and fairness to the full- and part- time staff, as the college acts to reduce spending.
The college has a right to “prioritize” its programs. We want to participate in that process, not only as stakeholders in the outcome, but also as partners in the learning.
Please attend Dr. Dickeson’s presentations…
