This season, the college electricians are plagued by numerous electrical outages created by unsafe electrical… Read More »

Dear Faculty and Staff, This is a reminder that we are still taking precautions when it comes to minimizing the spread of COVID-19.  One of the ways that we can accomplish this is through hybrid meetings, as called for in our COVID Safety Plan.  Please hold all of your meetings using remote meeting technology so that those who are concerned about being in a crowded space or that are working remotely due to their schedule or accommodation can attend.  Please keep in mind that some meetings, such as Faculty Senate, fall under the Open Meetings Act and attendance in… Read More »
