Mr. Turner is an amazing professor; he lets us go at our own pace (with the exception of quizzes and tests of course), but he is almost always available to help us figure out a certain math concept. This was my first college class as a CCP student, and he has made it a very good experience :)

James Strickland
James is doing a wonderful job leading my Student Experience Project team. He is flooded with names of students who need additional support, and he always follows up with them, individually, quickly, and relentlessly. He is full of great ideas for adding new support structures for students. Great!

Lodge joined the college relatively recently, but he has already been an amazing asset to the eLSID team. He brings wonderful ideas and perspective into the Student Experience Project. He values faculty input and using evidence-based approaches to institutional change. Wonderful, keep it up!
