President Hosts Meeeting

Isiah Reyes

Although few people showed up at the Student Center Nov.11 for college President Audre Levy’s planned question-and-answer session for students, faculty and staff, the meeting went ahead – for about 15 minutes.

With little detail offered, Levy, Dr. Vicki Nicholson (Associate Vice President), Dr. Dawn Lindsay (Vice President of Instructional Services), Dr. Ricardo Perez (Vice President of Student Services) and a few others spoke about topics ranging from the college’s current budget to future plans.

The meeting was widely publicized but, according to Nicholson, the reason for the low attendance might have been the timing of the event which was from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Taking place in the evening, the event did not allow for teachers who teach evening classes to attend.

Also, there was a morning seminar earlier that same day, which may have made the evening meeting redundant for those who attended that gathering.

Nicholson states that had more people showed up, Levy and the others would have answered all the questions and the direction of the meeting would go to wherever the questions led them.

In addition, Nicholson explained that the meetings are important because they give the administrators the opportunity to answer any questions that may be on anyone’s mind.

The next meeting with Levy will be held on Dec. 11 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in SC 212.
