    Pros

    Small liberal arts college with a collegial environment that allows for great flexibility to experiment and explore. I have enjoyed working closely with our students. Of course, I am in a position where I can work with select students, so that helps promote my positive attitude.

    Cons

    Not always a clear path about our mission or direction. Leadership at various levels is uneven. No room for growth, but who gets into academics for growth or money. Lately the college can feel like a country club, which fosters the noted coddling. This can be a real shame, since the college has made great strides to attract students from various countries, regions, backgrounds and economic classes. That diversity can seem squandered, as students too easily wander off to comfort zones.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and promote our institutional identity. Maintain a clean, simple, consistent message. Slowly abolish the Greeks, which more often than not squander efforts to build a vibrant and thriving community.
