    I had opportunity to speak with Tim Cook at the Clark College Student Video Film Festival and told him about the creation of this web site for augmenting, staging, and supporting Garbology comon read efforts. He immediately connected with the idea and supported it. It didn’t even take a full explanation to him to realize how a multi-user WP website could be beneficial here. BTW, Tim visited one of Lorelle’s classes earlier this year. I would like to invite him to participate on this forum.

    Opportunity—I just took a look at Clark College’s 2014-15 Institutional Goals and saw that under the core heading Enhance College System a goal for the college is to “Implement the Environmental Sustainability Plan”, which the latest scorecard suggests is still in process of being developed. My thought here is that Garbology’s timing for adoption could very much make an impact at Clark going well beyond the first year experience common read learning opportunities. And the selection of this particular book could serendipitously aid the case of the common read. Ray and Janette? Do you have enough copies for members of Clark EC and maybe the trustees?

      Brilliant. This is big! Love this idea.

        Yes, copies have been ordered for EC and I believe the trustees as well. Good connection to the 2014-15 institutional goals.

          Since I was aware of the direction of the strategic plan before our selection meeting, I was able to speak to the nice meshing of sustainability and garbology. I am pleased that you have caught onto the master plan 🙂

          Awesome, Ray. I’ve said it before, we eat at the same table.

    So Many Possibilities 

    I am very excited about where we might be able to take this web presence.   It could certainly serve as a central hub for the common read and where it  may lead.
