Bearings: News & Perspectives for Academic Affairs
My Armstrong Experience—Week NineOct 10, 2012, 03:29 pm - Carey Adams
With so much to learn about how my own office and division work, I have been spending much of my time on campus and focusing on tasks that are close at hand. Last week I was excited to be engaged in several conversations that focused on outside collaborations.
My last example of collaboration from last week actually is an all-Armstrong affair, but notable nonetheless. Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Keith Betts, invited me to visit with his senior staff last week. Sometimes Student Affairs and Academic Affairs misguidedly get painted as being on parallel if not opposite tracks. A good deal of what makes college a transforming experience for so many is the learning that takes place outside of the classroom. I was glad for the chance to emphasize to this group my commitment to helping Academic Affairs and Student Affairs optimize our partnerships.
