Strategic Initiatives – Raising the Bar

Raising The Bar: Going above and Beyond

You Spoke, We Listened, and We’re RAISING the Bar

During the Spring 2013 semester, college-wide LISTENING FORUMS were held with students, faculty, staff, members of the Foundation Board, and members of the Board of Trustees to learn what Cape Fear Community College is doing right and what it can do better to move us forward to greater heights of accomplishment in fulfilling our mission.

We’re Keeping Our Ears Open! Our Listening Forums helped us to examine what we can do to advance the college. We listened to you, and we’ll keep listening. Future Listening Forums will be held throughout the coming year, so come and join the conversation.

We heard you loud and clear! You told us we must all work better to improve what we currently do “INSIDE THE BOX” to better serve our students and each other. Continue to do what we do well— ONLY BETTER!
