Marty's Message 

“We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.”
—Maya Angelou, on diversity (American Poet, b.1928)
Thank you to everyone for making our all-college meeting a festive celebration of all CPS programs. We are a diverse college and it is exciting to see us enjoy and appreciate what Maya Angelou describes as the “rich tapestry” that each of our programs bring to our college.
Marty Loy,
Dean CP
