For the Good of the Order:

The proposed tuition waiver program for eligible staff dependents is still in the works. A survey will be available online beginning January 9, 2012. The information from the survey will be used to provide an estimate of use and financial impact to the Board of Trustees. Please watch Central Today for the announcement of the survey.

John Swiney reported that we have a record number of transfers for winter quarter. Enrollment is looking good.
