Holding Thursday’s summer work session at its Education Center located on the main campus in Arkansas City, Cowley College’s Board of Trustees discussed several topics during the three-hour long session.

The topics discussed were Sumner County sales tax, Kansas Board of Regents Data Share Analysis/Accountability and Institutional Measures (AIM), and updates on current institutional goals and enrollment management.

The meeting also consisted of goal setting for the upcoming academic year.

Along with Cowley College’s Board of Trustees, Cowley College president Dr. Michelle Schoon, and Debbie Phelps, executive director of institutional effectiveness, were joined by Jessica Lucas, government affairs liaison.

Lucas and the Trustees spent a good portion of the meeting discussing things that are going well at the Sumner Campus in Wellington and things that still need to be addressed.

Phelps provided an update on the 2022-2025 Strategic Plan. While Dr. Schoon discussed performance agreements for the academic year 2022 and provided an update on enrollment management.

Six candidates for the open Trustee spots on the Board attended Thursday’s work session.

The next regularly scheduled Board of Trustees meeting will occur Monday, August 21, at 6 p.m. inside the President’s Private Dining Room.
