Touch Base Tuesday 12-8-20


Dear Faculty and Staff:

I am pleased to announce that at the Board meeting last night, our trustees unanimously approved the new 2020-2024 Full-Time Faculty Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). A key outcome of collaboration is when two groups with varying agendas can come together and reach a consensus. This was the result of the recent negotiations between faculty and administration. Often success is attributed to leadership. As such, I wish to extend my gratitude to the faculty and administrative leaders who participated in negotiations:

Faculty Team:

  • Beth Michaels Smith, Lead
  • Jen Bussen
  • Heather Strueben
  • Steve Oberg
  • Alternates (Lindsay Brand and Joe Baumann)

Administrative Team:

  • Donna Davis, Lead
  • Todd Galbierz
  • Mike Dompierre
  • Dave Leenhouts

tbt.12.8.20_BHuman Rights Day is observed every year on Dec. 10 — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The UDHR is a milestone document that proclaims the inalienable rights to which everyone is entitled as a human being - regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

Today our students begin their final exams for the Fall 2020 Semester; exams continue through Monday, Dec. 14. Thank you to the faculty and student support staff members who have helped our students prepare for the culmination of their coursework. As we wish them success, please remind them to register for the Spring 2021 Semester before they leave for the Winter Break.

Have a great week,


Here is this week’s COVID-19 update:
