Research and Reporting Study Session on March 1, 2013

We have been wrestling with the questions like (1) What is the primary purpose of Research and Reporting in a college (2) Where does leadership come from and (3) What is the most suitable structure to promote this function?  As those conversations continue, we held our first study series at Bakersfield College on Research and Reporting on March 1, 2013.  It was very well attended.  Over 60 individuals, department chairs, deans, faculty and staff from key committees and councils.  This was the first of the focused discussions sponsored by College Council, http://www.bakersfieldcollege.edu/collegecouncil/, as part of our 18-month work plan.

The 90-minute study session (presentation posted at http://tinyurl.com/c98b8jc) was organized under three categories:

(1)   Big picture facilitated by Lisa Fitzgerald (Director of Institutional Research) and myself

Another feature to highlight is the infusion of wellness by having Brent Damron (Chair of Health and Physical Education) lead us through a serious of exercised during the stretch breaks.  Brent in his usual humorous style, led us through these exercises while providing us snippets of information on why it is critical to have a healthy body in order to have a healthy mind and to build healthy communities.
