The college’s senior staff convened on Monday in Middle College. Attached is a brief run-down of some of the issues, items and news discussed.
Four slots in Guest House lot are being reserved for Admissions guests
Based on an admissions visit audit performed last month by a consultant group, Vice President Nancy Benedict (along with Director of Communications Jason Hughes) brought forward a proposal to reserve four campus parking spaces for admissions guests. In the coming weeks, two of the guest house slots just off Chapin Street, along with two currently unmarked parking spots, will get new signage. The slots will be reserved for visiting admissions guests (potential students and their parents/guardians) between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Document retention and destruction policies discussed
In recognition of the disclosure requirements for the College’s 990 Tax Form, Vice President for Finance and Planning Laurie Stickelmaier brought forward a new policy for the group to discuss-- this time related to document retention and destruction. While no document was presented for approval, senior staff did weigh in on the kind of policy that might be best, based on Stickelmaier’s recommendation. Once approved, such a policy will be added to the www.beloit.edu/accounting website, where similar policies created and approved in the last few months are being loaded.
Group hears about changes announced by Bon Appetit owner, Compass Group
As was detailed in Tuesday’s Terrarium (“College and Bon Appetit management concerned by changes”), a portion of this week’s senior staff meeting was spent hearing about changes announced by Bon Appetit’s parent company that might alter some employees’ status with the food service provider, and as a result, their access to benefits. As of this posting, no new details have come to light. Any additional news will be shared via the Terrarium.
