FirstLink kickoff meeting with TCC

The summer weather may be hanging on, but fall is in the air at all of the community and technical college campuses across the state. Bates, Bellevue, Bellingham, Grays Harbor, Lower Columbia and Renton have already greeted fall quarter students, while everyone else begins next week. A busy and exciting time of year, for sure.

Last week, Tacoma Community College’s ctcLink College Team and SMEs (subject matter experts) stepped away from fall quarter preparation activities just long enough to meet with the ctcLink Project Team to gain a better understanding of their role and next steps as a FirstLink (pilot) college for ctcLink implementation. Among many things, the group discussed a process to determine how “ready” TCC is for the big changes ahead and how that readiness process will inform some key change-readiness activities and areas of focus down the road. A plan to document current business processes to prepare for changes that will come with ctcLink implementation was also discussed.

TCC President Pamela Transue said TCC is honored to be a FirstLink college and they are looking forward to blazing the trail to a new way of serving students and doing business.

“ctcLink will allow students to pursue their educational goals in a new way and provide new tools for faculty and staff to better serve students,” Transue said. “I think we’ve put together a great ctcLink team here at TCC and we are eager to get started.”

TCC’s ctcLink team discusses the project timeline and next steps with members of the ctcLink project team.
