Administrative Services progress on
Transition to the Future priority
- A succession plan was made and implemented in Administrative Services to welcome our new Associate Vice President for Administrative Services and incorporate him into the college processes and operations so he would be ready to successfully fill the Vice President for Administrative Services position vacated by our retiring Executive Vice President for Administrative Services Jay Nielson.
- The Strategic Implementation Team and others worked with Anderson Mason Dale Architects and community members in Riverton, Lander, and Jackson to provide a comprehensive update of the CWC Programming and Facilities Master Plan (38 MBs).
- The Business Office staff worked with stakeholders from throughout the college to complete the financial audit with an unqualified opinion.
- The Business Office staff began the process of moving to a new credit card provider. Training is in progress and all college credit cards will be switched to the new provider in September 2012. This change will allow for more efficient management of credit cards for both the Business Office and card holders throughout the college.
- Administrative Services hired a new Facilities Scheduler/Event Coordinator to provide comprehensive coordination (from scheduling to successful execution) of events held on the CWC Riverton campus and to be the college’s representative with internal and external event schedulers.
- The college implemented new software to improve academic and event scheduling at CWC.
- The Food Court began staffing the Food Court on weekends to provide students with more comprehensive meal plan options.
- The Food Court began accepting credit cards to allow students, staff and community members an additional option for paying for their meals.
- The Housing staff remodeled apartments to upgrade aging facilities and to address maintenance issues.
- Cost estimating and geotechnical work was done on the Riverton campus in anticipation of building new student housing. Plans were made to incorporate a new student housing project in Riverton with a housing project at the Sinks Canyon Center (pending WCCC approval) in an effort to maximize the economy of scale in this construction project and to allow CWC to enhance the Outdoor Education program with housing for second year students at the Sinks Canyon Center.
