Dear Friends of Carroll:
I write this still celebrating the end of year gift from Roy and Frances Simperman establishing the Simperman Learning Commons in the Corette Library. This transformational gift has brought us closer to our campaign goals, and we are excited to better serve our students through enhancements to the library. I also want to highlight another project within the plans for the Corette library: The Center for Professional Communication.
The Center for Professional Communication (CPC) will offer our students innovative resources for individual support as they practice and enhance their written, oral, and technological skills—foundational and critical competencies for success in all aspects of their lives. The CPC will be an important addition to our students’ educational journeys, from helping first year students with that initial public speech or English essay, all the way to assisting senior students with their Honors Thesis projects or professional conference presentations.
Carroll College is a dynamic and vibrant place of transformative education. Our students are doing exciting things as they learn, grow, and discover their passions! They are conducting research studies and presenting the results at national and regional conferences and at Carroll’s own Student Undergraduate Research Festival. They are investigating issues and writing articles for the Prospector, our student newspaper, and writing literary criticism and short stories for Carroll’s Literary Festival. They are using technology to integrate imagery and sound into creative multimodal demonstrations for class and community projects. The CPC will directly help our students accomplish all of these things and more.I hope you will consider becoming a part of this exciting project by making a gift to the MIND BODY SPIRIT Campaign today.
