It’s been a while since my last update and so I’d like to fill you all in on what CCI has been doing lately. Two weeks ago, we decided that perhaps we should take the committee’s investigation in a different direction, and instead of interviewing countless groups of people and still missing out on the majority of the college, we should look at surveys.
At first, we thought about constructing our own survey to be distributed by Chris Winters, director of institutional research here at Williams, but after speaking with him, we have altered that idea a bit. We are going to be looking at the results of certain surveys and picking out what data we want to analyze. Now, I’m not a statistician, so I’m not exactly on top of the survey/data game, but if you need more explanation on what is included in the notes, please talk to Mac Stone (email@example.com) or Lindsay Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org); they definitely know more about the nitty-gritty details than I do.
In any case, as of right now, all interviews have been suspended until further notice (this is not saying they will not ever take place, however) and we will keep you updated with the committee’s progress! We are looking to extend our deadline, since it was originally set at October 15 and it’s very clear that we are nowhere close to finishing. Please feel free to throw out any suggestions, questions, etc. on the new direction. The minutes from this week’s meeting will be up on the website quite soon, I just have to wait for Dave Senft to post them (definitely no later than Tuesday). Again, the website can be found here.
