Think, Know, Prove: Don’s Unaddressed Questions

If you let your mind wander way back to August 12th, the day of the President Don Laackman’s presentation to the faculty, you may recall that right at the end of the second slide show, there was a slide that had a pair of questions,  as a “just in case,” meant to instigate some discussion if there weren’t any (ha! as if!).

The slide looked like this:

As you can see from the questions, when compared to your own recollections of the conversation that followed, neither question was really addressed in that discussion. And so, I re-pose them to the lot of you, along with three more: What do you think? What do you know? What can you prove?

One thought on “Think, Know, Prove: Don’s Unaddressed Questions

  1. What do I take away from the one-on-one interviews? I think our president has been busy and his good intentions have led to a quick understanding of our college’s culture. Nice job Don! I was satisfied to learn that a common theme emerged from the interviews. Nice job peeps!

    IMHO, I don’t think Don needs to incorporate any of this survey information into the State of the College address. We’ve heard it once. If any folks missed the presentation Don should make it available for viewing.

    What do I think?
    I think it would be a good idea if Don informed about how this information will shape his presidential leadership in the coming year, or at the very least, this semester. He started by listening to our need for full-time faculty but I would like to know more.

    Thanks for asking. If anypeep thinks the same or different, chime in. I’ve not known of another time when a local administrator (or a provost) have asked for faculty input. Now is the time to speak our mind!
