  • Baseball program.
  • Get rid of some traditions, such as the Civ Scream and off campus Golf Parties.
  • Supply enough parking
  • The college seems to be on the right path. Continue to expand into the neighborhoods with property purchases.
  • Our College needs to truly grasp and accept the fact that our Campus, Students, Faculty and Staff should remain safe and protected at all times.
  • Transform its Security dept. into a public safety/police to protect and serve the campus community better. Build more dorms, increase the enrollment. Improve on its transportation system.
  • Better communication between campus designers and Office of Safety and Security. So that the campus is beautifully designed with security in mind.
  • I believe that we’re already doing the most to improve in every aspect of the school moving forward.
  • I believe there is always room for improvement but this college is doing its best in all categories.
  • Bringing the College community together.
  • Place more emphasis on safety. The College tends to be lax on safety. Too much emphasis on sports. Seems like there are more coaches than Public Safety officers.
  • New buildings are beautiful, but there are some of the older buildings that are very much in need repairs.

  • Taking care of the Security department.
  • Expand PC property and parking.
  • I would remodel the security office, it is open 24/7 – 7 days a week, people stop in all the time, it’s not a good first impression.
  • Create more scholarship money for RI Residents.
  • Would step up and totally finance the immediate construction of a “State of the Art” Security Command Complex, including a top-notch Security Training Center. Also, construct “Real” Security Control Stations at all entrances into our Campus. All being done with the focus of a total 100% commitment to the Safety and Protection of all Students.
  • Build a public safety complex and equip the public safety officers with proper tools/equipment/vehicles to perform the job effectively. Upgrade dorms, build an event center, build a multi-level parking garage for students/visitors, buy the rest of Huxley Ave, and transform into parking/trees, separating the campus from outside.
  • Continue the beautiful iron gate work to encompass the campus discouraging unwelcome walk-ons & implementing an empowered Campus Police for student safety in these tough  times.
  • A new facility for the Office of Safety and Security! We have mold growing in and on the walls.
  • I would buy up all the property near River Ave and Admiral Street to Huxley for more acres. Have our own facility to host Men’s basketball on campus!
  • Scholarships to those deserving education and programs to Inspire students. Other monies in an account for future use.
  • Build a new Student Center and included the following: Residence Life, Safety & Security, EMT’s, & Student Health & Personal Counsel departments.
  • First I would build a modern facility. Where we are located now is confining and a small building. Hire more officers. Update equipment. Equip the vehicles with dash radios and laptops. Modernize the control stations with cameras the officers can monitor.
  • Build a parking garage.

  • Students finding jobs after graduation.
  • That everyone is treated equally.
  • Retention & graduation rate.
  • What could be a bigger Success or important measure than having each and every parent that’s drops off their Children to our Campus, to feel absolutely assured that their student will remain safe? To allow each parent to have the absolute comfort of knowing that their child will be guided, educated, protected and kept safe at all times. What measure compares with that?
  • New and updated buildings, ex. academic and dormitories. People like to see new projects on campus, builds the excitement, shows the college is growing and always investing in the money to keep the school competitive with the other colleges.
  • The education provided for our kids, so that we always have a list of students trying to attend our school. Maintain our tradition of Truth and commitment to diversity.
