Office Hours with the Office of Career & Professional Development
Greetings Alumni & Parents,
The Office of Career and Professional Development is pleased to announce that Friday Office Hours will be gearing back up in November 2017. We will be building upon the success of last year’s program and hope you will consider joining us to share your time and talent with our amazing students.
We are seeking volunteers to share their industry knowledge, networking and resume feedback, and provide some initial mentorship to students on an individual basis. We would like to have representation from a wide variety of industries including but not limited to: Finance, Consulting, Education, Non-Profit, Film, Technology, Theater, Arts/Media, Law, Health, Psychology, and Sports Management. As a volunteer in the program, you will be asked to meet with students in 30-minute increments between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. (EST) on one of our available dates. All students will sign up for a time slot and each volunteer will be provided with the student's resume prior to their appointment. The meetings will take place in the Vinal Cottage building across from campus, however, we are also happy to arrange Skype and phone sessions for those who cannot participate in-person.
The following dates are currently available. Please contact Marenda Weaver, email@example.com, with your desired date and your industry. We will do our best to accommodate all of you who are interested in participating in the program.
Invitation for Public Comments
Connecticut College will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit April 8-11, 2018, by a team representing the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
The Commission on Institutions of Higher Education is one of seven accrediting commissions in the United States that provide institutional accreditation on a regional basis. Accreditation is voluntary and applied to the institution as a whole. The Commission, which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, accredits approximately 240 institutions in the six-state New England region.
Connecticut College has been accredited by the Commission since 1932 and was last reviewed in 2007. Its accreditation by the New England Association encompasses the entire institution.
For the past year and a half, Connecticut College has been engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission's Standards for Accreditation. An evaluation team will visit the institution to gather evidence that the self-study is thorough and accurate. The team will recommend to the Commission a continuing status for the institution. Following a review process, the Commission itself will take the final action.
The public is invited to submit comments regarding the institution to:
Public Comment on Connecticut College Commission on Institutions of Higher Education New England Association of Schools and Colleges 3 Burlington Woods Drive, Suite 100 Burlington, MA 01803-4514 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Public Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of the institution. The Commission cannot settle disputes between individuals and institutions, whether those involve faculty, students, administrators, or members of other groups. Comments will not be treated as confidential and must include the name, address, and telephone number of the person providing the comments.
Public Comments must be received by April 11, 2018. The Commission cannot guarantee that comments received after that date will be considered.
