The 2013 Employee Survey will be open for your feedback until Friday, April 12th. Please take this opportunity to provide your input on all aspects of the college at the following link: http://survey.vccs.edu/wsb.dll/s/41gf08
Your opinions matter! Concerns expressed in previous Employee Surveys have been addressed through such items as:
- changes in our governance structure
- strengthened oversight of dual enrollment courses
- improved parking lot safety
- increased food options
Help our college continue to meet the needs of both employees and students by providing your input. If you have any questions about this anonymous survey, please contact the IEO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new walkway from Lot 14 and Lot8E to the back of Anderson Hall is now open for use. Restoration of the grass along the new sidewalk and areas where old sidewalk was removed will be completed soon. The sidewalk is designed to use stairs for level changes and have relatively flat walkways between stairs for ease of pedestrian use. The improvements to Lot 8E, which were implemented last summer, were planned to off-set new sidewalk pavement. That is why some asphalt is being removed. This is part of our being environmentally friendly. As budget permits landscaping and sitting benches at the circular landings will be added so one can enjoy the views, read a book or just rest a moment.
The outdoor pedestrian causeway at Business will be finished sometime in April. The walkway will have a new nonskid surface. The new handrail will be fitted with LED lights which illuminate acrylic panels placed intermittently along the path. The columns supporting the elevated walk will have decorative wrappings at ground level designed to enhance the new plaza area outside the food court.
The top floor of Brown Library is being renovated and prepared to open for Fall Semester 2013. The week of March 25th the contractor will be installing a new ceiling. A pneumatic nailer will be used to fasten the ceiling hangars to the structure and this nailer sounds like a small gun. If you are in the Library or the vicinity of the library and hear this sound please do not be alarmed.
