Thinking of College updates in your area that took place over the past 12 months, between April 1, 2020 and March 30, 2021, please write about 5 sentences about something that was a new idea, or a new activity that enriched or improved your department, or the lives of our students. We are looking for news about your department, including partnerships, students, staff, partners, even annual events like convocation open house, parades, symposiums, guest speakers, mock disasters, new policies and procedures. Describe the following:
- Who was involved and who helped
- What happened or occurred
- How did it unfold
- Why was this decided on and relevant to being more efficient, strategic, expansive, progressive, adaptable, or improving or enriching learning/our College/students and/or staff experience
- Where did this take place (campus and/or community-specific, if applicable)
- When did it occur
- What was the result/impact of this action
If you aren’t sure if something is important or relevant enough, include it anyway and let us decide on it in the editorial stage of the project. We are completely open to what you may share.
