SUBJECT:       Campus Reports for the November 2001 Board of Regents Meeting

    Jim Potter and I visited 18 schools, which included Dawson Community College, Miles Community College and Fort Peck Community College.  The administration at the various community colleges were very supportive and willing to help us improve our articulation agreements and course transfer documents.  It is our goal, as an institution of higher education, to build quality partnerships and articulation agreements with the Montana Community Colleges, Tribal Colleges and Colleges of Technology.  These partnerships will make it possible for Montana students to take advantage of the strengths of various schools around the state.

    The administrators from the High Schools were excited to see us and shared a number of good ideas on how we can better meet their needs.  I felt our visit was a good first step in what I hope will be a long and productive relationship.

    The Community Technology Education Center project is a major undertaking for this institution.  Its success will be valuable to programs throughout our campus and that success can be magnified by the combined efforts of all.
