Panel of Big Shots

See the big shots, give ’em a piece of your mind, or see if you can find theirs!

It’s free, it’s close, it’s at an inconvenient time, but it’s free!

From your email:

Attention: all City Colleges students, faculty, staff and administrators

Lt. Governor Sheila Simon will be making a CCC stop on her Complete College Listening Tour at Malcolm X College.  As Lt. Governor Simon tours all 48 Illinois community colleges, she will be promoting the state goal of having 60 percent of all working –age adults hold college degrees or certificates by 2025.

Simon will participate in a panel discussion on how the state-wide completion goal relates to CCC’s Reinvention strategy.  All City Colleges students, faculty, staff and administrators are invited to attend.

Tuesday, October 4th at 10 a.m.
Malcolm X College
Bruce K. Hayden Performance Center
1900 West Van Buren

Joining Simon on the panel are:

Alexi Giannoulias, chairman of the Illinois Community College Board
Gery Chico, chairman of the Illinois State Board of Education
Perry Buckley, president of the Local 1600, Illinois Federation of Teachers

On the tour, Lt. Governor Simon is learning what each Illinois community college is doing to improve completion and how the state can help schools overcome barriers to the completion goal.

All City Colleges students, faculty, staff and administrators are invited to attend and participate in the discussion.

  1. Did anyone else notice that the subject line for that email was, “Your Invited to an Education Panel Discussion”? Really? Your?

    • I didn’t even catch that. It’s poetic justice given the absurdity of holding the panel at 10 am. It’s a shame so many of us will be unable to attend. I mean, I could ditch my 2 classes tomorrow to talk about education. Perhaps completion rates will go up if more classes are cancelled. Ah, late night snark…back to work.
