January 2023 Newsletter

CIL Family,

As we go into 2023, it’s a time to reflect on what matters most to you. From dreaming big to refreshing your professional and personal goals. Make this year your best one yet!

An organization’s most valuable asset is its people. People like yourselves are in search of professional advancement to provide for their families. It will be leaders who empower others that will catapult you to reach these goals. I will be asking you for a high level of commitment to help us reach the next level of success but will be there to empower and support you.

We begin our January Term with some new staff and faculty that will enrich our leadership team and contribute to the ongoing growth of the college with a sustained focus on excellent student outcomes and experience.
