As communicated in early March, the College has engaged Sibson Consulting (a Human Resources consulting firm that is nationally recognized in Higher Education), to reassess and update the staff compensation program and provide a high-level review of health benefits, retirement, and other pay-related policies.  To launch this project, members of the Sibson consulting team visited campus and met with various representative groups to begin to understand current perspectives around the College’s compensation and benefits programs.
