At a Tuesday meeting with the community college presidents, the Chancellor, and others, we discussed the December System summit. Among the topics that will be covered at the summit is dual credit. Perhaps the most pressing issue surrounding dual credit is how to fund it. The NM legislature is now paying serious attention to this matter.
I spent the last three days of the week at a CASE Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona designed to help leaders in higher education become more effective fundraisers. The conference presentations were excellent. I cannot say that I heard anything new, but it was good to be reminded of best practices, to be engaged in problem-solving, and to meet administrators and development officers from around the country.
