Hello, subscribers and visitors!
Instead of traveling this spring break, I decided to relocate the dean’s blog. Yes, you heard right. I’m leaving here, and going . . . there:
If you’re subscribed here, you needn’t do anything. I took you with me. In a little travel pouch full of subscribers. If you haven’t subscribed here, well—don’t.

For those who may not be familiar with HB 2223, let me start with a brief introduction.
There are many details in the bill, but we will be dealing with two key components. First, there’s a phased requirement to increase the percentage of developmental education courses that are co-requisite with college credit courses. There’s a good bit of evidence that students achieve proficiency in Continue reading “HB2223 challenges and opportunities”
For those of you who weren’t able to join me for the Fall 2017 LAHC convocation, here’s a brief overview.
I am honored to have been appointed dean of our newly realigned division, Liberal Arts: Humanities and Communications, a position I assumed officially on August 1. Unofficially, I was occupied (until well into September) with my two-year process of moving fine and performing arts out of Rio Grande and into newly renovated space in Highland East. My thanks to Lyman Grant for Continue reading “Convocation Redux”
