Following the "African American Male Webinar" today in Stockade 102, Student Affairs held their regularly scheduled meeting. I must say, it was relatively fast (they only had a little over an hour before the offices closed for the day) and yet, very productive.
When we think of meetings, no matter where we work, we often imagine sitting in a chair for a long period of time and the discussions going on, and on, and on, and on, and never seeming to get anything accomplished.
I sure have seen enough of these kinds of meetings in my day.
But, today we were effective and shared a lot of information. I credit this successful meeting to all of the employees in attendance. Each person shared their thoughts, ideas, and current plans for their slice of the whole Student Affairs pie-- and boy were their ideas tasty.
I say tasty, because we could all grasp each development as it was presented. We understood the ideas each person shared and could see the thoughts becoming actions.
Things are moving along quickly. Everyone has their missions and are working hard to follow through!
Problems were identified and solutions were already in place before each person could get back to their office.
