May 2017 Coffee with the President

Friday, July 21, 2017

I had the opportunity to meet with three employees who have been at CW almost as long as I have!  They are Bob Onorato, Stacy Larson and Maria Gangi.  While I exaggerate just a bit, these three folks have been with CW for a while, and brought unique insights that only people who “remember when” can do.  We had a lively discussion about many topics including orientation, the CW culture and how it has evolved over the years, as well as innovative alternate academic delivery methods, academic pr

How a Break From Email Can Boost Productivity

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

When asked how often they check their email each day, most people can’t even begin to estimate. Lots of us leave our inboxes open all day long. Yes, email messages are vital to communication, but the downside is that they can be a distraction, especially if we enable alerts and notifications that disrupt us through the day. Also, when miscommunications occur, it can lead to mental and emotional stress that can trickle into other areas of our day. The result: impaired productivity.

52 in 52 – Online@CW with Professor Thompson

Friday, July 7, 2017

Professor Janet Thompson’s Management Applications and Theory group welcomed me several weeks ago.  Professor Thompson invited me to participate via VoiceThread, which I did.  We discussed Quality Management and The Female Factor.  I have to tell the truth – I was not an intense participant, as technology got in my way!  I was away for part of the week and did not get to respond to every student’s comments, and had to opt for written comments rather than voice a few times.  However,

Learn the Risks: Colon Cancer

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Summer is upon us.  Lots of partying, sunbathing, and enjoying time spent with families and friends.  The last thing we want to think about is watching what we eat.  Why should we?  After all, we have earned the right to have fun and celebrate.

Yet, lurking in our body could be a potentially deadly disease called colorectal cancer.  Many of us have never even heard of it let alone think that it could ever affect them.
