Students are encouraged to resolve the issue with the appropriate faculty or staff
member. For academic concerns, this should begin with the instructor. If the student
is not comfortable discussing directly with the instructor, the student may initiate
the concern with the appropriate department chair. If the instructor is the current
department chair, the student may initiate the concern with the appropriate instructional
dean. For non-academic concerns, the student should bring the issue to the director
of Student Life for assistance in identifying the appropriate contact. For assistance
in identifying the appropriate faculty or staff member, contact the Office of Student
PREFERRED FIRST NAMES
COCC recognizes that many individuals prefer to use first names other than their legal
first name to identify themselves. In support of our commitment to creating and sustaining
a welcoming, safe and supportive environment, COCC provides students the option to
use a preferred name where possible. Please see our preferred name FAQ webpage for additional information.
COCC provides locations for students and employees to have access to a private space
for lactation purposes. Private, secure spaces are available in Boyle, the Barber
Library, Room 226, and in Grandview Hall, 2nd floor bathroom/shower. Click here for hours and key information.
What do "Beowulf," Gran Fondos and the '62 Ferrari GTO all have in common? They all
intersect in the life of our new president, Dr. Laurie Chesley, whose background includes
British literature, a passion for road cycling, and an appreciation of classic cars.
Beginning her tenure with COCC this month, Dr. Chesley is a former English professor
who has spent nearly 20 years on the administrative side, holding leadership positions
at both two- and four-year colleges. She's also a first-generation college graduate.
Get to know her better. And scroll on for this month's vitals.
