Dear Faculty and Staff:
I hope you have the opportunity to connect with your colleagues across campus for the Information Fair. CSC conducts the All-Campus Information Fair once a year. This is a time to learn about various units as well as a time to talk with the members of our CSC community – in some cases our paths seldom intersect. Finger food will be available, as some of you have immediate obligations after the Information Fair.

12 October 2017 All-Campus Work Session
Two important conversations regarding recruitment and retention have been held this fall. The first was the annual student, faculty, and staff leadership luncheon. The information gathered at that meeting, especially the students’ emphasis on the importance of advising, led the scheduling of the second meeting, the All Campus Work Session. On October 12th discussion leaders from Executive Council led faculty, staff, and administrators in small group discussions about advising at CSC. During both of these meetings it was clear that everyone recognized the power of effective advising on student retention, and that there are areas of strength and areas of needed improvement. The Strategic Enrollment Management Committee (SEMC) collected and collated the responses from both meetings and at its next meeting will examine these data to see what themes emerge around the issue of advising. A subcommittee will be created to address advising. In addition to the work on advising, the Strategic Enrollment Management Committee will form two other subcommittees to work on Student Engagement and First Year Experiences. The SEMC committee will be asking interested faculty, staff, and administrators to join these subcommittees. If you have a particular interest in one of these topics, please email Jim Powell of your interest.
