November 4, 2015: College Self-Study Results
Dear Swarthmore Community Members,
Last spring, many of you shared your thoughts and experiences as members of this community by completing the Swarthmore College Self-Study on Learning, Working, and Living. We are writing to invite you to hear about the results.
Two open meetings will be held on Fri., Nov. 13, in the LPAC Cinema – the first from 10:30 a.m. to noon and the second from 12:30 to 2 p.m.
Both meetings will be led by Sue Rankin, whose firm, Rankin & Associates, conducted the self-study survey and processed the results. There will be time to ask questions during both meetings.
As was articulated at the beginning of this self-study process in Fall 2014, the goal is to identify what we each expect and experience as members of this community. By identifying what is working and what opportunities and challenges may exist, we will be able to better define our collective aspirations as members of the Swarthmore College community. You can learn more about this effort at www.swarthmore.edu/study-learning-working-living.
Thank you for your participation in this important effort.
Val Smith, President
