Lisa --

As Membership Coordinator I should have caught this earlier -- but I do thank you for tooting your own horn. I do not think this is a coincidence as here we have two 'tech-savvy' institutions where the professional staff not only understands the role of access technology but is committed to (and proud of) their work. So -- do we know anyone at the other CC's on these lists? Let's get out there and recruit new members!

BTW Lisa and Khaki -- now might be a good time to upgrade your ATHEN membership to the Institutional level <http://athenpro.org/member> .

Not to brag or take any credit, but, ahem...

Midsize colleges - between 3,000 and 7,500 students:
1st: Indian River Community College, Fort Pierce, Fla. (tie)
1st: Laramie County Community College, Cheyenne, Wyo. (tie)
2nd: Darton College, Albany, Ga.

Yup, that's right - it must be the ATHEN membership that makes the difference, eh? *grin!*

The Chronicle of Higher Education Wired Campus Blog has posted a list of the "Top Tech-Savvy Community Colleges" in the United States. The category of "Small colleges - less than 3,000 students" caught my eye:

1st: Patrick Henry Community College, Martinsville, Va. (tie)
1st: Tompkins Cortland Community College <http://www.sunytccc.edu/> , Dryden, N.Y. (tie)
2nd: Central Wyoming College, Riverton, Wyo.

Why - might you ask is this so interestign to this blog? Well, it just so happens that long-time ATHEN and AHEAD E-Text Solutions Group <http://ahead.org/etext/etext_main.htm> member Khaki Wunderlich is the Associate Dean of Learning Supportand Organizational Development and the Access Tech Goddess for the campus <http://www.sunytccc.edu/bcl/d_adaptive.asp> .

Now I'm not saying that Khaki is the reason TC3 made this list -- but she certainly deserves kudos!
