The doctor will see you now
By Izzy Anderson - Staff Reporter
Highline President Dr. John Mosby will discuss how the college can improve on its strengths, and strengthen its weaknesses, on campus next quarter.
Dr. Mosby will host several listening sessions to talk about goals and plans for the college.
The listening session dates will be announced in January, he said.
At these sessions, Dr. Mosby will talk about what he has seen and what he would like to see at Highline.
"[I will] discuss my observations and goals for the college. Also, the sessions will be opportunities for discussion with the entire Highline College community," Dr. Mosby said.
Everyone on campus is welcome to attend and make their voices heard, he said.
"These sessions will create opportunities for our staff, stu- dents and faculty to share what they want to see for High- line, now and in the future," said Dr. Mosby.
Dr. Mosby will cover sev- eral topics that he feels are important to benefit the college.
"I'll leave the specifics until the upcoming ses- sions, but will say some items that will be dis- cussed are in the areas of equity, transparency and collaboration across all areas of the college," Dr. Mosby said.
As for Highline's strengths, there's always room for improvement, he said.
"We can always build on our successes and goals," Dr. Mosby said.
A couple strong traits that the college already has is creativity, and a willing- ness to try new things, he said.
"Highline is an insti- tution full of creative stu- dents, staff and faculty," Dr. Mosby said. "Oppor- tunities are often given to try new things, approach- es to student success and professional develop- ment."
These sessions will over- all be a good opportunity to gain some insight of, and have conversation about, the future of the institu- tion.
"I look forward to the conversations and next chapters for Highline Col- lege," he said.
