Chris Chairsell,┬áVice President of Academic & Student Affairs, unleashed the beast during PCC’s College-wide In-Service at the Sylvania Campus on Monday, Sept. 16. The beast being the BHAG, or better known as the Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal monster (see pictures). The BHAG is a challenge set forth by new College President Jeremy Brown to encourage staff and faculty to dream big the goals they want the college to achieve in 2013-14. It’s all part of the college’s push for new strategic planning initiative. Thousands of PCC staff and faculty enjoyed the In-Service during the annual day event, which also included a “PCC” shirt giveaway, voting for words that best describe PCC’s culture, honoring of the college’s 30-year or more tenured employees and a special speech by a PCC Foundation Rose Scholar.

PCC should offer a Workforce Development four level curriculum emphasizing communication skills for frontline, lead worker, supervisory and upper management employees. Could be no credit certificate programs customized for organizations or open enrollment.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
