WYE MILLS – Local residents will help Chesapeake College plan for the future during public meetings this fall. Listening sessions are scheduled for each of the five Mid-Shore counties over the next 30 days.

Chesapeake officials are seeking public comments as the college updates its Strategic Plan for the future.

"We are talking to students, alumni, business leaders and community representatives to see what they think we would should be doing to better serve the area. We think it is also important to have open sessions where anyone can ask questions and share their opinions about our services," Chesapeake President Dr. Barbara Viniar said. "We are the community’s college, and we want to know how to better provide for the area’s educational and training needs."

The Listening Session schedule is as follows:

Monday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. in the Kent County Public Library in Chestertown.

Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. in the Dorchester Public Library in Cambridge.

Monday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. Due to weather on Oct. 29, this session has been rescheduled for Monday, Nov. 26th at 7:00 pm in the Talbot Free Library in Easton.

Monday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Queen Anne’s County Free Library in Centreville.
