In November 2007—what seems like eons ago now—the Calvin.EDU Project team called upon 12 firms and received 10 outstanding proposals (see In the Beginning). After a holiday of reading, analyzing and debating, we’re pleased to announce three finalists are visiting campus.
The three finalists will arrive on campus January 31 and February 5 and 6. The format for their visit includes both a team interview and a mid-afternoon presentation to representatives from each college division. In plain English, the objectives for the visit are to:
- evaluate the consultant’s understanding of our project,
- assess the consultant’s relative strengths and weaknesses,
- evaluate the consultant’s potential to continue with Phase 2, and
- ascertain the consultant’s cultural fit with Calvin.
Without a doubt, we’re excited about who’s coming; however, to drop names is a bit unfair. We can say they’re experts in user experience design and higher education. So, stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted as things heat-up.
