The President’s Cabinet is currently looking for two students to be a part of the Student Advisory Committee, according to Interim Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Ockle Johnson. 

Johnson presented President Melinda Treadwell’s Sustainability and Vitality Plan along with Chief Enrollment Management Officer MB Lufkin to the Student Assembly on Monday, February 25. 

There are three goals in the plan regarding recruitment and retention rates, fiscal planning, student-centered experiences and more. The first step of the plan is bringing in Huron Consulting Group to analyze and give recommendations to Keene State on certain areas where they see potential development or changes. 

Johnson said there is an open call for two students, one junior and one senior, to sit on the Strategic Advisory Committee where they will work with faculty and staff to provide guidance for the cabinet about making decisions concerning their strategic priorities. Their first job would be to work with Huron and give the cabinet students’ perspectives on what Huron recommends. Johnson said the two students should be selected within the first few weeks of March.
