Committee Updates

Spring 2017 Update


Co-chairs: Betsy Gugle & Kimberly Ditty
Faculty/Staff Liaison: Patricia Miranda

The LEAD committee met with the full faculty/staff to share a new framework on how to think of leadership— relational vs. authoritative and also shared what other schools are currently doing in regards to leadership. Afterwards, the faculty and staff gathered in small groups to begin crafting our school definition of leadership. The committee’s next step is to pull a small group of faculty from each division to analyze the definitions and begin refining the definition of leadership at CSG using the feedback.

On January 4th, during the Faculty Professional Development day, the Deepen committee brainstormed and processed the differences between skills and core competencies. Following the brainstorming session, a small group of faculty from all divisions was convened to take the work from the full faculty and distill it to 5-7 core competencies. A sub-committee is also beginning to think about the process of defining what excellence in teaching means at CSG.


Co-chairs: Kevin Sweeney & Dana Booth
Faculty/Staff Liaison: Jenni Biehn

The Flourish committee will led a Faculty Professional Development day on March 27th to discuss and gather data from faculty to determine "profile" or qualities of a successful CSG student.

The Thrive committee is in full data-gathering mode as they identify security implementation projects that we can move forward and explore school spaces that can easily be rented out to provide additional revenue to the school. They have begun collecting data on CSG's athletic, artistic, extracurricular, and co-curricular programs to complete a comprehensive audit of our programs in order to create a scope and sequence of student activities outside the traditional classroom.
