Chancellor Search Updates Here

The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities has begun the process of finding a successor to Chancellor James H. McCormick, who plans to retire in July 2011. Former board chair David Olson has been appointed to head the search advisory committee, which will recommend finalists to the board.

 

External Wayfinding/Monument Signage at Both Campuses

A series of external signs will be installed on the Cambridge Campus and Coon Rapids Campus during the week of Nov. 15. The series includes modest monument signs and wayfinding signs to direct our students and visitors to various locations on campus. You may wonder why we don’t add even more signs to increase awareness of our two campus locations. First, the city of Cambridge and the city of Coon Rapids limit the amount of sign square footage. In addition, this package is within the budgeted amount for college signs in the current fiscal year.

Feel free to take a look at the signs.

 

Health and Wellness Center Addition Update

The Health and Wellness Center project is moving along, with an Request for Proposals (RFP) being published mid-October for a designer for the addition.  There is an informational meeting for prospective designers this week and the Facilities team hopes to have all the proposals collected by Nov. 17.  Once the proposals have been reviewed the Facilities team will narrow the selection down to three designers to be interviewed.  Two designers will be forwarded to the President and Vice President and construction would most likely begin fall of 2011.  We will keep you informed as the process continues.

The FY 2012 Strategic Initiatives Proposal (SIP) Process Begins in January

SIP applications will be available in each department’s budget packet.  The application provides instructions, outlines the required content of the proposal, and will announce the strategic initiatives the proposals must support. Please ask your manager or supervisor for the application once budget packets are available if you do not have access to your department’s budget packet and are interested in applying. 

What is a SIP?

A SIP is the application written and submitted to the college's SIP Committee to request financial support for the project outlined in the proposal.  The project must clearly relate to SIP-eligible strategic objectives.  Projects funded through SIP grants are the testing ground for new or enhanced programs or market research or assessment to measure and evaluate the need for new or enhanced programs.  The person or team who proposes the project, plus the appropriate administrator, is responsible for implementing the project, tracking, budgeting and reporting.

Strategic Initiatives Proposal (SIP) Process

In the late 1990s, at the request of Anoka-Ramsey Community College’s president, a committee developed a process that provided an incentive for supporting special projects related to specific college strategic initiatives. As a result, the SIP process was implemented in 1999, with 76 projects receiving funding since then.  The process is an integral part of Anoka-Ramsey’s Integrated Budget Process.  Funds are earmarked annually for SIP projects proposed by faculty, staff or students.

Do All Proposals Receive Funding?

Usually, they do not. Many factors are involved, beginning with the availability of funds each fiscal year.  Further factors include the number of proposals, the SIP Committee’s scoring of proposals and the importance of a proposal as it relates to a strategic objective.

Who Can Apply?

Any faculty, staff, student, or a combination thereof may submit a proposal.  Usually a group of people collaborates to formulate the proposal.  The group is often a cross-section of more than one discipline or department.

Timeline

  • Jan. 3, 2011:  Applications (in budget packet) will be available to guide development the proposal.
  • Feb. 15, 2011:  Completed proposal documents are submitted to a supervisor or dean for signature.
  • Feb. 28, 2011:  Supervisors or deans submit signed proposals to the SIP committee facilitator.
  • April 2011:  The SIP Committee evaluates, scores, and makes recommendations to the president.
  • May 2011:  Awards are announced.
  • July 1, 2011:  Project funds are released after the budget is approved for the new fiscal year.
  • July 2011 through May 2012:  Projects are conducted, tracked and completed.
  • May 2012:  Final project reports are due to the SIP committee facilitator.
  • June 1 2012:  Documentation for requisitions and requests for reimbursement are due at the Business Office, if they have not been submitted previously.

Contact Jill Snippen with any questions regarding the SIP process.

 

Steps for Successful Open Enrollment

Two Rivers Reading Series Author, Nov. 2

Submitted by Paige Riehl

Nationally-renowned poet Patricia Smith will visit the Coon Rapids Campus Legacy Room, Nov. 2, noon to 2 p.m. as part of our Two Rivers Reading Series.

This is a unique opportunity for students to hear a national book award finalist read from and discuss her poetry collection titled, Blood Dazzler. Smith has authored four other collections of poetry. She has won the National Poetry Series Award for "Teahouse of the Almighty" and is a winner of the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award and Paterson Poetry Prize. She is also a Pushcart recipient and a record-setting poetry slam champion.

"Blood Dazzler" is a riveting, in-depth look at the emotional and social tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. Her visit will allow students to examine the storm’s effects on our country and our response to it, examining the social, political, economic and personal impact of our response and lack thereof. Patricia Smith’s poems weave together the horror and despair, as well as the helping and healing, during and after Katrina. American poet and human rights advocate Carolyn Forche wrote this about Smith’s collection, “Blood Dazzler is Patricia Smith’s impassioned lyric chronicle of a beloved city in peril, a city whose people were left to die before us all, a people who were the heart of our country and lifeblood of our culture.” The presentation will be an invitation for our students to consider the economic and racial issues at the core of much of the Katrina controversy.

Thanks to the Department of Diversity and Multiculturalism for their support and sponsorship of this event. These events are free and open to the public.

Pause for Appreciation

I want to thank the young man who helped Metropolitan State's instructor, Barbara Beltrand, one evening.  She wanted to say that he was so helpful and very accommodating. She appreciated his efforts in getting something for her to use and just wanted him to be recognized for his efforts and kindness. Please convey this message to him.

I would also like to acknowledge how quickly your IT department accommodated our request on such a short notice.

News from President Jessica Stumpf

Last week, Chancellor McCormick announced a realignment with Anoka-Ramsey Community College and Anoka Technical College under a single president. In addition, Keith Stover, president of South Central College will lead the search. Here is the complete press release.

 

What If…We All Contributed?

I am calling all college employees to please consider making a donation to the college foundation(s).

If you have never contributed before, it is my wish that you might go without a cup of coffee, a movie ticket or some other treat, just one time, in order to use those funds as a donation – even $5 to $10 could make a huge difference if we all participate.

The economy has been tough on so many of us, particularly our students. Please say “Yes” to students this year.

Music Faculty Invited to Perform with Symphony (Again)

Music Faculty member, Rich Manik has been invited to perform with the St. Cloud Symphony Orchestra:

  • Dec. 11, 2010, 3:30 p.m. Prokofiev: Troika;
  • May 14, 2011, 7:30 p.m., Mussorgsky

Earlier this year, Rich performed the sopranino saxophone part in Ravel’s Bolero with the orchestra.

The St. Cloud Symphony Orchestra presents high quality performances of orchestral music and educational outreach to the St. Cloud area to encourage participation by local and area musicians, and to further the understanding and appreciation of orchestral music.

The orchestra was established in 1975, and presents four formal concert programs each year which draw 600 patrons each.

Members of the orchestra are predominantly St. Cloud faculty, staff, alumni and students of area colleges and universities.

Congratulations, Rich!

 

Research Ramblings

Submitted by Nora Morris, Dean of Research & Evaluation

This is the first installment in a weekly series of updates from the Institutional Research Office.

Research office staff has the privilege of reviewing reams of data about our students, our programs, our faculty and staff and our institution over all. At a recent meeting it occurred to us that many tidbits could be useful to all of you in helping to know and understand who we are and the community we serve. This is our attempt to share the wealth of information that passes through our office. Each week we will provide some interesting facts on a different topic. Please feel free to comment on what we present and most importantly, talk amongst yourselves.

Did you know:

When asked to identify their main source of academic advising (help with academic goal-setting, planning, course recommendations, graduation requirements, etc.) from the time of their decision to attend Anoka-Ramsey through the end of the first three weeks of their first semester, most entering students reported their main source of advising did not come from faculty or staff at the college:

  • Friend, family or other students: 53%
  • College Web site/other college materials: 15%
  • Computerized degree advisor system: 3%
  • Instructors: 17%
  • College staff (not instructors): 12%
  • Around 87% of FT students and 74% of PT students agreed/strongly agreed that at least one instructor learned their name.

Vets Appreciation Walls

Submitted by Phil O’Donnell, Director of Veteran and Access Services

You may notice three temporary “Vets Appreciation Walls” in place around the Coon Rapids Campus – on the second floor by the BN Bulge; by the entrance to the Cafeteria; and on the first floor in the Student Commons area.

Please take the time to let our veterans know you appreciate them!

Feel free to single out your parents, grandparents, siblings, children or just veterans in general.  But let them know you care.  Write down your thoughts!  We will be observing Veterans Day this week with special events at both campuses.  Thank you.

For more information, please contact Phil O'Donnell at x1687.

 

Choir Concert in Honor of Our Veterans

The Anoka-Ramsey Community College Concert Band and Choirs will perform a concert in honor of our veterans and service men and women on Sunday, Nov. 14 at 3 p.m. More than 125 students from the college will sing and play music with themes of war and peace, culminating in a performance of the "Armed Forces Salute," a tribute to each branch of the military. Other works will include selections from Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass with guest soloist Michelle Hayes, acappella choir music of Byrd & Moses Hogan, and band works by Gustav Holst and John Philip Sousa. 

Admission is free and open to the public. Please join us in honoring our men and women in uniform!

 

Faculty Recital

Most voice students sing repertoire from a collection of Italian Songs and Arias in college and high school music practice rooms, hallways, all-state auditions, solo-ensemble contests and recitals. The Anoka-Ramsey Community College Music Faculty are excited to present the "Twenty-six Italian Songs and Arias" in their entirety.

Come and enjoy "Amarilli" through "Se tu ma'mi" in a Faculty Recital on Monday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center, Coon Rapids Campus.  Vocalists, pianists, guitar players, and a cellist from the faculty will be sharing these famous arias in a variety of interesting and exciting ways.

 

Support the Perpetual Clay Scholarship

The Perpetual Clay Scholarship Fundraiser provides an opportunity for current students, faculty & staff to acquire an original work of art at a nominal price, and the proceeds are used to create scholarships for future art students. All tickets sold are guaranteed to win. Tickets sold for $50 are drawn first, followed by tickets for $20. Everyone purchasing a ticket will leave with an original piece of art!

I.         Minutes of September 17, 2010 were approved electronically.

II.        Program Review Committee Recommendations for Approval :

  • AFA in Studio Arts—Program Review, PR-02-FY11, APPROVED.

III.       Program Review Committee Recommendations for Review re-submission:

  • AS in Environmental Science—Program Review, PR-01-FY11, NOT APPROVED: There is a MnSCU mandate to have an articulation agreement with at least one MnSCU institution. Review current articulation agreements, including how articulating partners transfer core courses, and assess core courses, and assess core requirements at transfer institutions. Report back to AASC by February 1, 2011.
  • All Business Programs—Program Reviews, PR-04-11-FY11, NOT APPROVED: The plans have some excellent recommendations, but the reviews need substantial revision. Reviews need to be reworked, providing basis for recommendations, supporting documentation, and timeline of recommendation implementation to AASC by12/1/10.

IV.       Discussion Items:

  • Overall recommendations for program reviews:
  • Adopt and utilize standard form
  • Integrate checkpoints throughout the review year, with sub-committee feedback.
  • Need standards for integration of table information.
  • Need analysis of why students declare a major, but do not finish.
  • If program does not have strong number of graduates, need to integrate course-level data to assess impact—i.e. enrollment trends over time for the courses in the program being considered.
  • Publicize program review abstracts more widely (available to the community for review—i.e. on the Web).

Nora Morris will come back to the committee with a template for the Program Review.

  • Credit for Prior Learning
  • Biederman asked committee members to take the “Draft for AASC Discussion 10/15/10 re: Credit for Prior Learning” to their departments for discussion.
  • It was suggested the college look at a cap for credit by exam and portfolio review credits. AR should look into what other colleges are doing with this. The deans recommended that, if a faculty member could not be found to assess a portfolio, that they be able to select someone outside the college who could review and make a recommendation for acceptance for the credits requested.
  • If a faculty member from the department is not available to work with a student requesting competency based credits for prior learning, a request should be made to AASC to recommend a faculty member. 
  • All available options should be recorded on the CCO.
  • Departments need to develop written requirements for what a student can do to pass a class with a portfolio.
  • Biederman will revise the form.

II.        Decision Academic Overview and Demonstration Curriculum Navigator

III.       Proposals for approval:

  • BMED Program Review:  BioMedical AS and Clinical Research Professional Certificate—Program Review, PR-11-FY11, Program review submission    Rationale: Up for review.
  • BMED 2584:  Pharmacology for nurses and related health care professionals—Add a new course, B-02-FY11, Cross-list with NURS 2584    Rationale: This will allow BMED students to take the required Nurs 2584 course without paying the higher nursing differential tuition rate. Faculty will be able to teach the same curriculum to different groups of students in different formats while meeting the same courses objectives.
  • CRP Program:  Clinical Research Professional Program—Change a program, B-01-FY11, Change the current NURS 2584 to BMED 2584    Rationale: This will allow BMED students to take the required Nurs 2584 course without paying the higher nursing differential tuition rate. Faculty will be able to teach the same curriculum to different groups of students in different formats while meeting the same courses objectives.
  • NURS 2584:  Pharmacology for nurses and related health care professionals—Change a course, N-01-FY11, Cross-list as BMED 2584  Rationale: This will allow BMED students to take the required Nurs 2584 course without paying the higher nursing differential tuition rate. Faculty will be able to teach the same curriculum to different groups of students in different formats while meeting the same courses objectives.
  • Credit for Prior Learning Academic policy:  Add a policy, ES-02-FY11, Establish rules governing CPL options available to students  Rationale: MnSCU policy and procedure direct the college to develop local rules to govern implementation of the Credit for Prior Learning options at the college.  These rules will facilitate the development of CPL options for students, which will benefit students who enter the college with course-related competencies and skills.
  • Math 1110:  Introductory Statistics I—Change a course, M-01-FY11, Revise catalog description; remove unscheduled computer lab; minor revision to learner outcomes and course assessment. Rationale: Revise catalog description to include experimental design and sampling and removed chi-squared tests which reflect the modern emphasis on data-gathering techniques. Remove the unschedule computer lab time, computer work is integrated into the regular course work. Learner outcomes and course assessment revised.
  • SPAN 1101 and 1102:  Beg. Spanish Language and Culture I and II—Change a course, H-02 and 03-FY11, Change from four to five credits  Rationale: The purposes of this proposed change are threefold: 1) to better align the ARCC language program with that of other community colleges throughout the metro area; 2) to better prepare our students who will transfer to other language programs, particularly to the University of Minnesota and other colleges and universities on a five-credit program for language courses; and 3) to ensure that the content of our courses better reflects and addresses the goals as stated in the course descriptions and common course outlines.   With the exception of ARCC and NHCC (which is also considering proposing to add a credit), all other colleges in the metro area offer language courses at five credits. The importance of offering 5-credit language courses in the metro area is that many of our students transfer to the University of Minnesota, which also has a 5-credit-based language program. Ninety percent of students that transfer to the University from community colleges will study in the College of Liberal Arts, which requires two years of foreign language.  Studying languages on a 4-credit basis puts our students at a disadvantage as compared with students from other metro area community colleges transferring to the University of Minnesota or, for that matter, to any other institution.  Moving to 5 credits, as other metro area institutions have done, would enable us to cover the grammar listed in our common course outlines and to reinforce it through meaningful proficiency-oriented exercises (as indicated in the course description) .  As a result students would be better prepared for future language studies either here at Anoka-Ramsey or at a transfer institution.

IV.       Discussion Items:

V.        Information items:

  • HPER 1189:  Sleeps, Eats, and Exercises—Add an experimental course, INFO-06-FY11, In Collaboration with the University of Minnesota, ARCC is adding  this course as a learning and research tool. We will be using it as a base health class and trying to look at the effects of the curriculum on students. Rationale: To provide students with the knowledge and skill they need to live a balanced life while in college. To provide base health information and look at how using this information could affect weight gain among college students.

Wellness Works Health Observance: November is Diabetes Awareness Month

Diabetes Statistics:

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. According to the 2007 National Diabetes Fact Sheet from the American Diabetes Association (data for 2007 is the most recent data available at this time):

  • 23.6 million adults and children (7.8% of the population) have diabetes
  • Broken down by age:

                - Under 20 years old: 0.22% of this age group have diabetes

                - Ages 20 or older: 10.7% have diabetes

                - Ages 60 or older: 23.1% have diabetes

  • 57 million have “pre-diabetes,” a condition in which blood glucose levels are elevated, but not high enough to meet the diagnostic criteria for diabetes.

Source: American Diabetes Association [http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/diabetes-statistics/]

Diabetes Diagnosis:

Go to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases to learn more about how diabetes is diagnosed.  [http://diabetes.niddk.nih.gov/dm/pubs/diagnosis/#diagnosis]

Symptoms of Diabetes:

When someone’s blood glucose levels are elevated, the excess circulating glucose disrupts the natural balance of the body (homeostasis). Symptoms one might experience include the following: 

Type 1 Diabetes

  • Frequent urination
  • Unusual thirst
  • Extreme hunger
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Extreme fatigue and Irritability

Type 2 Diabetes*

  • Any of the type 1 symptoms
  • Frequent infections
  • Blurred vision
  • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
  • Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet
  • Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections

*Often people with type 2 diabetes have no symptoms

Source: the American Diabetes Association [http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/symptoms/]

What’s the Difference Between “Type 1” and “Type 2” diabetes?
  • In the past, type 1 diabetes was referred to as “juvenile-onset diabetes,” as it tends to occur more often in people who are under age 20, and it still does. Of all cases of diabetes, type 1 makes up less than 5%.
  • Of all cases of diabetes, type 2 comprises about 95%. In the past, type 2 diabetes was referred to as “adult-onset diabetes,” because it tended to occur more often in middle-aged to older adults. However, this is changing: as the average weight in both the youth and adult populations is increasing, more young people as well as adults are developing type 2 diabetes.

Academic Affairs and Standards Council

November 19, 2010, Mississippi Room and ITV to E202, 1:00–3:00 p.m.

Agenda

I.          Minutes of October 15, 2010 were approved electronically.

II.        Decision Academic Overview and Demonstration Curriculum Navigator

III.       Proposals for approval:

  • BMED Program Review:  BioMedical AS and Clinical Research Professional Certificate—Program Review, PR-11-FY11, Program review submission    Rationale: Up for review.
  • BMED 2584:  Pharmacology for nurses and related health care professionals—Add a new course, B-02-FY11, Cross-list with NURS 2584    Rationale: This will allow BMED students to take the required Nurs 2584 course without paying the higher nursing differential tuition rate. Faculty will be able to teach the same curriculum to different groups of students in different formats while meeting the same courses objectives.
  • CRP Program:  Clinical Research Professional Program—Change a program, B-01-FY11, Change the current NURS 2584 to BMED 2584    Rationale: This will allow BMED students to take the required Nurs 2584 course without paying the higher nursing differential tuition rate. Faculty will be able to teach the same curriculum to different groups of students in different formats while meeting the same courses objectives.
  • NURS 2584:  Pharmacology for nurses and related health care professionals—Change a course, N-01-FY11, Cross-list as BMED 2584  Rationale: This will allow BMED students to take the required Nurs 2584 course without paying the higher nursing differential tuition rate. Faculty will be able to teach the same curriculum to different groups of students in different formats while meeting the same courses objectives.
  • Credit for Prior Learning Academic policy:  Add a policy, ES-02-FY11, Establish rules governing CPL options available to students  Rationale: MnSCU policy and procedure direct the college to develop local rules to govern implementation of the Credit for Prior Learning options at the college.  These rules will facilitate the development of CPL options for students, which will benefit students who enter the college with course-related competencies and skills.
  • Math 1110:  Introductory Statistics I—Change a course, M-01-FY11, Revise catalog description; remove unscheduled computer lab; minor revision to learner outcomes and course assessment. Rationale: Revise catalog description to include experimental design and sampling and removed chi-squared tests which reflect the modern emphasis on data-gathering techniques. Remove the unschedule computer lab time, computer work is integrated into the regular course work. Learner outcomes and course assessment revised.
  • SPAN 1101 and 1102:  Beg. Spanish Language and Culture I and II—Change a course, H-02 and 03-FY11, Change from four to five credits  Rationale: The purposes of this proposed change are threefold: 1) to better align the ARCC language program with that of other community colleges throughout the metro area; 2) to better prepare our students who will transfer to other language programs, particularly to the University of Minnesota and other colleges and universities on a five-credit program for language courses; and 3) to ensure that the content of our courses better reflects and addresses the goals as stated in the course descriptions and common course outlines.   With the exception of ARCC and NHCC (which is also considering proposing to add a credit), all other colleges in the metro area offer language courses at five credits. The importance of offering 5-credit language courses in the metro area is that many of our students transfer to the University of Minnesota, which also has a 5-credit-based language program. Ninety percent of students that transfer to the University from community colleges will study in the College of Liberal Arts, which requires two years of foreign language.  Studying languages on a 4-credit basis puts our students at a disadvantage as compared with students from other metro area community colleges transferring to the University of Minnesota or, for that matter, to any other institution.  Moving to 5 credits, as other metro area institutions have done, would enable us to cover the grammar listed in our common course outlines and to reinforce it through meaningful proficiency-oriented exercises (as indicated in the course description) .  As a result students would be better prepared for future language studies either here at Anoka-Ramsey or at a transfer institution.

IV.       Discussion Items:

V.        Information items:

  • HPER 1189:  Sleeps, Eats, and Exercises—Add an experimental course, INFO-06-FY11, In Collaboration with the University of Minnesota, ARCC is adding  this course as a learning and research tool. We will be using it as a base health class and trying to look at the effects of the curriculum on students. Rationale: To provide students with the knowledge and skill they need to live a balanced life while in college. To provide base health information and look at how using this information could affect weight gain among college students.

Cambridge Campus Employee Hosts Book Signing, Dec. 4

 

Cambridge Campus Academic Support Center Coordinator, Heidi Haagenson will sign her book, “The Tenney Quilt,” at Scout and Morgan Bookstore in Cambridge on Saturday, Dec. 4, 11 a.m.

“The Tenney Quilt,” emerged from my desire to learn more about my own personal history,” says Heidi. “I began by researching the 700 names on the quilt and the town where four generations of my mother’s family were born and raised. In the process, I saw stories emerge, and then the idea of writing a book occur.”

The book is based on a historical signature quilt which Heidi now owns that has been in her family since it was made in 1928 in the little town of Tenney, Minn., where her mother was born and raised. As a fundraiser to buy a cook stove for the town hall, 700 participants, representing the people of Tenney and its surrounding area during the late 1920s, paid 10 cents to have their names embroidered onto the quilt.

The book is available for sale at Scout and Morgan Bookstore in Cambridge, Minn., at common online outlets such as amazon.com, and is in circulation at the libraries at both college campuses.

 

Cambirdge Campus Academic Support Center Coordinator, Heidi Haagenson will sign her book, “The Tenney Quilt,” at Scout and Morgan Bookstore in Cambridge on Saturday, Dec. 4, 11 a.m.

Promotional Resource Guide Mass Mailed Nov. 18

To drive recruitment for spring semester and to increase college awareness among community constituents, the Marketing Department has developed the latest promotional mass mailer/resource guide. This guide is mailed out to households in the college’s nine-county service area, and is intended to encompasse all the academic, training, student life and student service offerings. The message drives readers to contact the college by phone or through electronic means.

This publication drives prospects to a landing page,to call x1840 or x1200, or send the hard copy “Ready for More” request by mail.  Incoming calls will be tracked by the Coon Rapids Information Center and the Professional Training Front Desk.

Please note that the publication uses seven spreads to break out the college’s Academic offerings into Interest Areas. Each Interest Area (Fine Arts, Biology, Computers, Education/Social Services, Engineering and Health/Wellness) is backed by a testimonial (in print and video).

Our value-added student resources and life outside the classroom pages serve as the strong, unique selling proposition for those who may be unsure of which college to choose or whether to attend college or not.

After you’ve had a chance to read the publication, feel free forward your comments and suggestions for future resource guides to the Director of Marketing and Public Relations, Mary Jacobson (x1315) or Communications Project manager, Tina Perpich ( x1545).
