Campus Architects Hear from our Community

June was an exciting and busy month with the Mission Branch facilities project as we moved into the beginning stages of the design phase. Architect Mark Cavagnero and his team gathered and analyzed responses to stakeholder surveys filled out by faculty, staff, current and past board members, community partners, donors, renters of CMC spaces, and a cross section of students and parents.  Two meetings with the stakeholders took place at which the architect team presented a lengthy analysis of the surveys and framed a discussion to deepen their understanding of how our community would like to bring together a new campus.
