Weekly Update

September 19, 2016

Good morning

Monday again?! I hope everyone had a good weekend. I spent a rainy Saturday morning at Applewood.


My calendar is up to date as of this morning. Today is a split day for me. I'll be leaving around noon and will return before 5 pm to work the reference desk this evening. PAC is scheduled for Thursday morning.


Fall Rally is Wednesday from 10 am-1 pm. I have shared the sign-up sheet, but in case you didn't get it, you can find it here: Fall Rally Sign Up.


The All-College Conversation on Enrollment is Friday. The day will begin at 8 am with breakfast. There will be a keynote speaker, panel discussions and time for breakout sessions with our departments. Please take time this week to consider these three questions:

1. What is the core function of MCC?

2. How does your department support the core function of MCC?

3. How can your department help ensure the future of MCC through recruitment (think of 3 key ways your department can help improve recruitment)?

We will be developing a plan for how the library can help with recruitment, retention, and completion, steps to complete our plan, persons responsible, and how to monitor progress on our plan.


Have a good week everyone!
