First and foremost, the new PAR process has been designed to ensure fairness and equity across the Divisions of the College. Accordingly, we have decentralized the initial component of the process by requiring all projects to be submitted directly to one’s Vice President. This and all other associated steps of the process – replete with timelines – can be found at this link.

The Wi-Fi rebuild in Ceracche Center and Muller Faculty Center was recently completed. Our testing shows that Wi-Fi performance is much improved, but we'd like affirmation from the people that use Wi-Fi in those buildings.
Please let us know if the Wi-Fi network is now meeting your needs by completing this quick 2-question form:

Summer Blood Drive July 7th from 10 to 5 in the Fitness Center. You Can Make a difference this Summer and honor your hero by being a hero!!
Contributed by Cynthia Smith on 06/25/2015
Summer is the season we wait for. It's the season full of fun in the sun.. Summer offers more than 100 days to make a difference. Thank you for please clearing your calendar On July 7th for what's most important to help save lives by donating at our American Red Cross Blood drive from 10 to 5 in the Fitness Center. During the summer months of June, July and August, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive. This could add up to more than 100,000 fewer donations. If at least two more donors gave blood at every Red Cross blood drive this summer, above what's expected, patients would be better assured of having lifesaving blood products readily available. Call 1-800-REDCROSS TO SET UP YOUR APPOINTMENT ON JULY 7TH
