Dept. Meeting Tuesday May 3, 4-5p.m.

Our final department meeting this spring is Tuesday, May 3 from 4:00-5:00.  We will meet “in the round” to discuss the Academic Master Plan draft and the Statement of Expectations.

As a recap: The Academic Master Plan is in draft form.  If you want to respond to it, please do so on the AMP website (search it on the MC website).  We’ll also discuss it, though, and I can send some thoughts forward as needed/as I am able.  I’ve been sending some items in already.

The Statement of Expectations is an updated version of a generally agreed upon document shared by community colleges around the state.  The committee meets twice a semester and includes faculty and department chairs.  We’re hoping the document is final by the CAO meeting in June if not long before.

See you Tuesday if not sooner—eb
