Touch Base Tuesday 10-2-18


Dear Faculty and Staff:

As we get into another busy week, I wanted to send out a reminder of a few things that will be happening around campus in the coming days. The Transfer Fair will be held from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. this Wednesday in the SSB auditorium, and Trunktoberfest will be held 4-8 p.m. this Saturday in the Red Parking Lot, to name a few.

SCC is proud to be one of the sponsors for Manufacturing Day. The event is taking place this morning in the gymnasium. Please feel free to stop by if you get a chance.

Last week Vice Presidents Bookstaver and McDorman, along with Brynne Cramer, joined me for a very productive trip to Springfield, MO to visit with the chancellor of OTC, Dr. Higdon and his leadership team. We learned about the steps taken by OTC to bring two of its extended service area counties into its taxing district. The information gained will be beneficial in our work in Warren County.

At last week’s President’s Council meeting, Todd Galbierz and Amy Koehler provided an update on the taskforce that has been assembled to research the possibility of bringing student housing to SCC. We hope to have a recommendation from this group within the next few weeks. Please let me know if you have any feedback regarding this initiative.

Finally, I want to thank the members of the President’s Council for their candid feedback regarding implementation of the Staff Compensation and Career Progression program. Although funding is limited and enrollment is down, it became apparent to me that we needed to reallocate dollars to increase compensation for progression to Levels II and III. I was pleased that the Board of Trustees, at their meeting last week, approved my recommendation for the revised plan. I will be meeting with staff representatives from the President’s Council to discuss other ways in which we can support their success.

Best wishes,
