8 February 2018 All-Campus Meeting
At the All-Campus Meeting the following documents were provided: Academic Affairs Events Prior to First Day of Fall 2018 Classes; Student Services/Affairs Events Prior to the First Day of Fall 2018 Classes; MHEC four Key Themes – CSC response; New Eagle Registration & 2018 Orientation Events; Strategic Enrollment Management Committee.
These are attached with the VPAA Update email. It would be appreciated if faculty would complete the co-curricular outcomes survey provided by Dr. Nesheim at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9CHXX32. The survey consists of twenty-five outcomes (five for each “facet” of co-curricular activities as listed in the definition below). The survey asks how well each outcome represents what you think CSC should value in co-curricular activities. The survey also asks your status (undergraduate student, graduate student, faculty, staff, or administrator), and has an open text box for your comments.

Graduate Studies Update
Prior to the budget freeze, Dr. Margaret Course was hired on a temporary, part-time basis to assist with the Graduate Studies Programs. At this point, it is intended that she will work with Admissions to convert graduate applications to enrollment. It is also anticipated that she will be involved in various retention efforts within the Graduate Studies Programs.
Tk20 is now WatermarkTM
During 2017 Tk20, Taskstream, and LiveText merged, and as of now are united under a new company name: WatermarkTM. This new branding is displayed upon logging into Tk20. The companies have been and continue to integrate their operations, resources, and personnel. At this time, their products are not integrated, and CSC continues to use the existing Tk20 assessment product. At the end of the 2018 Spring term, WatermarkTM will begin appearing in the header area of all their applications. We will be coordinating efforts to transition to the new name in a way as to diminish confusion as much as possible.
