Message From The President Dear Friends, At the Community College of Vermont, we believe in creating strong communities through education. We believe in working together to enhance the lives of all Vermonters. We have always prioritized building relationships across the state, and recognize that we do our best work through close collaboration. Today, we are deepening existing partnerships and diversifying the reach of new collaborations, helping us to more broadly serve Vermont students, businesses, and communities. This annual report celebrates several of our most successful initiatives. With twelve campuses and our Center for Online Learning, CCV offers comprehensive programs suited to meet the needs and goals of any learner, regardless of age, background, or life circumstance. Our classes and programs are designed to engage and enrich every student and directly affect the communities in which those students live and work. Our workforce initiatives are well suited to meet the changing needs of workers and industries. CCV has joined forces with Twincraft Skincare to offer leadership training, which increases worker efficacy while filling a skills gap at the Winooski-based facility. Our Career Services team has collaborated with the Vermont Department of Libraries to create the Job Hunt Helper program, which sponsors CCV students in Vermont libraries to assist patrons with searching and applying for jobs, training, and continued education. CCV’s comprehensive veterans services are tailored to those who have served or are currently serving, offering customized guidance in helping students meet personal, educational, and career goals. The Assessment of Prior Learning course is a cost-effective, efficient way to earn college credit for skills and experience gained outside the classroom, providing many students with a boost toward completing a degree. The Photovoice project in Springfield is an example of our dynamic service learning initiatives. The photography project placed students in direct contact with community members to bring art, conversation, and reflection to a town in transition. Our secondary education initiatives are expanding. Access Days offer middle school students an introduction to college through a day of mock classes, panel discussions, and meetings with CCV faculty, students, and staff. Showcasing our continued commitment to providing accessibility to higher education for all Vermont students, the Man Up and Move Up 802 programs are designed to increase the success of first generation college-goers. We are proud to report that these programs, as well as many others, are growing and thriving. We are confident that the coming year will be one in which we continue to empower our students and strengthen our communities, and we look forward to your support along the way.

he halls at CCV’s Upper Valley academic center are often full of students making their way to classes, but this past April, the students were much younger than you might expect. Seventy-five middle schoolaged students were at the CCV location attending Access Day, an event designed to introduce young Vermonters to college. CCV is committed to ensuring that all Vermonters are aware of the options for attending college after high school. We are a leader in the state for introducing high school students to the collegiate world through our free Introduction to College Studies (ICS) course and via the state’s Dual Enrollment and Early College programs. While these programs are showing positive results—students who take ICS are 15% more likely to attend college—at CCV we have realized the benefits of reaching out to students at an earlier age by hosting Access Days around the state. During Access Days, middle school-aged students from neighboring communities are invited to CCV to take a mock college class, attend a panel discussion with CCV students, meet faculty and staff, and learn about options for pursuing a degree. More importantly, attending an Access Day means today’s middle school student is more likely to take ICS in the future, and eventually, attend college and earn a degree. At the April event, students from Woodstock Union High School & Middle School (WUHSMS) attended classes such as Pop Culture, Anatomy and Physiology, Ethics, Psychology, and Nutrition at the College’s Upper Valley location. Fourteen-year-old Alice Sperber from Pittsfield took the mock anatomy class and said the whole day was “interesting and informative.” Access Day, she said, reinforced her thoughts about college. “I always thought that college seemed like the next step,” Alice said, “and this solidified it for me.” Huddled around a table, Alice and twelve of her fellow students listened as CCV instructor Martha Rainville described the parts of a brain. Bathed in the light from an overhead projector casting the image of a brain on the wall behind them, the group stood transfixed when Martha held up a real sheep’s brain 4 | 2016 ANNUAL REPORT

and offered it to them to hold. While there were a few audible “ewws,” there were far more expressions of excitement at the prospect of touching a real brain. Alice said that while holding a sheep’s brain in the anatomy class was her favorite part of the day, she also enjoyed hearing from the panel of college students about what they liked about CCV and college in general. More importantly, she said the benefits of attending CCV for the first few years of college and then transferring to a four-year school was information she’d be sharing with friends who didn’t make it to Access Day. Currently, Vermont has one of the country’s highest high school graduation rates, but that is countered by one of the lowest college-going rates in the United States. With economists predicting that within the next twenty years 60% of jobs in the state will require some post-secondary education credential, programs such as CCV’s Access Days, Dual Enrollment, and Early College are more important than ever. Ryan Becker, a science teacher and eighth grade team leader at WUHSMS who attended the Upper Valley event said Access Days are an essential means of increasing his students’ awareness of Vermont’s college options and the opportunities to get a jump on a college degree while in high school. “Access Day is valuable because it offers our students a window into some of the educational opportunities available just miles away,” Ryan said. “Whereas most students are at least vaguely familiar with traditional, four-year colleges, many are unfamiliar with alternatives. CCV offers a diverse, affordable, and high-quality experience that many can take advantage of even while still in high school.”

epending on your aesthetic sensibilities, a trip to Springfield, Vermont can leave you feeling sad , astounded, or a myriad of other emotions, both positive and negative. The hulking brick remains of Jones & Lamson Machine Company’s lower factory greet you as you head into town from I-91. Vacant storefronts dot Main Street. Long-abandoned factories stand watch over Black River Falls, depositing themselves brick by brick into the rushing waters. While some look upon the town’s dilapidated appearance with disdain, CCV Coordinator of Academic Services Deb Grant and her students don’t.


For nearly a year Deb’s students worked with community members on the Photovoice project. This service learning initiative encouraged community members to photograph what they disliked, and more importantly, loved, about their town. Thousands of photos later, a selection of the best were displayed in a public exhibit that has drawn viewers from all over the state. “This is not supposed to be a negative thing, it’s supposed to be a positive thing,” said student Dagan Warner. “You know you have the optimists who see good in everything, and then you have the pessimists. We’re trying to show the pessimists that there are good things in Springfield, like the beautiful scenery and the life around town.”

HOURS ENGAGED IN... Community Work Experience & Projects


This is what CCV’s service learning projects are about: engaged learning that effects positive change within Vermont. Each semester CCV faculty build service learning projects into dozens of classes offered around the state and online. Sometimes the work is done directly with a community or town, such as with the Springfield Photovoice project. In other cases, students work with nonprofits such as local animal shelters and food banks to collect donations or volunteer at events. Regardless of how or where, service learning at CCV gives students opportunities that aren’t available through traditional classroom studies. These experiential, hands-on assignments translate into students putting theory into practice, engaging

in civic activities, and ultimately enriching the fabric of the state’s communities. And that, Deb says, creates the ties that bind students to their place here in Vermont. “The students with whom I’ve worked on the Photovoice project are becoming more articulate about their connections to the community and they’ve been better able to talk about their experience here and what they think should change,” Deb said. “They’re wanting to be more involved.”

“I want to work with veterans and their families,” Morgan says. “I want to be a good advocate for them.” Morgan spent nearly nine years as a boatswain’s mate in the U.S. Navy. She completed two tours in the Persian Gulf, then left the military to return to Vermont in 2009. She says the transition to civilian life was unimaginably difficult. “I thought it would be this great thing, that I had all of this experience and all of this knowledge. I thought I was a shoo-in, that I would get a job.” Instead, she struggled. “It was a really big challenge,” she says. Then a friend offered to help her get started at the Community College of Vermont, and she decided to go to school. Morgan graduated from CCV in 2012 with a degree in human services. While in school—a difficult transition in and of itself—she wanted to tailor everything she was learning to be military-specific. She wanted to focus on veterans and their families and how best to support them. As Morgan describes her return to civilian life, one thing is clear: support is in desperately short supply. “I want to help veterans get what they need, but then also help the civilian side. The military really is a culture that’s completely different,” she says. “It is not understood by greater society. To bridge that gap, that’s what I want to do.” After finishing at CCV, Morgan went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in social work from the University of Vermont. While working toward that degree, she was hired as one of two veteran resource advisors at CCV—staff members who are part of a broad initiative at the College to offer specialized support for veteran and military students. In this position, Morgan launched her career in outreach and veterans services. Today, Morgan is an outreach specialist for the Vermont Veterans Outreach team. Her work is 8 | 2016 ANNUAL REPORT

Vermont Veterans Outreach team. Her work is multidimensional and her responsibilities many; she does everything from educating the community to helping veterans understand their benefits to simply listening. “Veterans want to talk to other veterans, people who have been there and done that, and who can empathize with them,” she says. Morgan plans to continue her education and eventually complete a master’s degree in social work. She wants to continue helping others in whatever ways she can. CCV is proud to be a part of Morgan’s story. It seems there is very little that could stand in her way of supporting and strengthening her community—indeed, she already has. Enhanced veterans services are made possible by the generous support from the J. Warren and Lois McClure Foundation, Bari and Peter Dreissigacker, the Hoehl Family Foundation, the Vermont Veterans with Disabilities Fund, and the Vermont Community Foundation.




an up. It’s a familiar phrase you might hear joked about between friends bound for an adventure. But in Lamoille County, it’s a call for young men to step up and go to college through our donor-funded Man Up program. The program was launched in 2014, in a Vermont county with some of the lowest college-going rates among high school graduates who would be the first in their families to attend college. Through the generous funding of our donors, Man Up offers opportunities for young men between the ages of seventeen and twenty-seven to attend CCV with additional support services and benefits. 10 | 2016 ANNUAL REPORT

The success of the Man Up program in its first year was so profound, it attracted the attention of Governor Peter Shumlin, who invited two Man Up students to the State House for his 2016 State of the State address. As brothers and CCV-Morrisville students Brian and Justin Bourdeau watched from the balcony of the House Chamber, Gov. Shumlin lauded their work in the Man Up program and announced plans for the state to expand the program to a broader demographic and a larger geographic area. Man Up takes a novel approach to getting students into classes and on the way to college degrees. The program is built on a foundation of enhanced support services and leadership opportunities

for students. Participants in the program attend mandatory one-hour workshops to improve study skills. They also have direct access to tutors and academic personnel to help them with any part of their college experience. Man Up students take leadership roles in service learning projects and serve as peer tutors at the center. Students who fulfill academic and attendance requirements are given grant-funded gas cards to ease the burden of commuting to and from the College. And while the attraction of free gasoline has fueled enrollment in the program, students are taking away more than just full gas tanks. “Initially, Man Up students were telling us the gas cards were an incentive for signing up,” said Dean of Students Heather Weinstein. “But after spending time at CCV and taking classes, what we’ve heard from them is that the mentoring and academic support they received had much more of an impact on them than the transportation benefits.” The outcomes in Lamoille County have been remarkable. In the fall 2015 semester, 89% of Man Up participants were in good academic standing. As of June our first participant completed the program and graduated with an associate degree. Programs such as this, that offer opportunities and encouragement to Vermonters to enter and succeed in college when they might not otherwise do so, are needed now more than ever. The new Move Up 802 program uses a nearly identical model to Man Up, though the incentives will change to better meet the needs of the broader population the program will serve. We expect students to find the same successes that past participants, such as the Bourdeau brothers, have, and those successes are what change lives. “I say, give college a shot, because even if you don’t like it, you’ll get something out of the classes that will help you in life anyway,” Justin says. “But if it catches you and you find out ‘oh I can do this, I can educate myself and become more successful in life,’ then it’s a really good opportunity to improve yourself.” Man Up is made possible in part by the generous support of Bari and Peter Dreissigacker.

odit Tshibamba Buabua studies network administration at the Community College of Vermont. Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, he came to the U.S. in 2011, first to Chicago and then, three years later, to Vermont.

“I wanted someplace quieter and less busy,” he says. “Vermont was an adventure.” Dodit lives in the heart of Winooski, an easy walk to the city’s CCV campus. In addition to taking classes here, he is an IT intern, he works in the Learning Center, and he is one of the College’s Job Hunt Helpers. CCV directly engages with and strengthens communities by working to develop information literacy. In partnership with the Vermont Department



of Libraries, the College has launched Job Hunt Helpers, a program through which CCV students assist library patrons with using online resources to find employment. The program falls under CCV’s broader career development initiatives, which offer comprehensive services to assist students with career and job needs. From creating and implementing an academic plan to utilizing tools for job searches, students can work with faculty, staff, and our four dedicated career consultants to outline and reach career goals. The Job Hunt Helpers program faces outward, putting Dodit and five other students in local libraries where they are available as a public resource to aid in career development. Dodit spends six hours a week at the Winooski Memorial Library, helping users discover training and educational opportunities,

assess skills, write resumes, and search for and apply to jobs. Dodit says he enjoys his work at the library not only because information technology and literacy are his expertise, but also because it’s an opportunity to interact with community members. “[The] library is where everyone is coming. You meet different people [with] different backgrounds,” he says. “I think it’s a great program.” It’s clear that he finds his involvement with the library meaningful; he speaks quietly, and deliberately, when he shares that “every time you help somebody apply for a job, write a resume, fix a computer program, it’s amazing to see the way those people are happy.”

This is a big deal for Dodit, who began work toward a law degree before moving to the U.S. He takes his role as community member—and mentor—seriously. After CCV, he says he’d like to pursue a bachelor’s degree and eventually resume his study of law, potentially to work for an international organization. Dodit went through a major transition in moving to a new country five years ago. “You have to restart your life, change everything, start speaking English,” he says. By now, his English—one of his five languages— is quite good. He is a vibrant member of his adopted home. He’s found his niche in Vermont. “I like CCV,” he says. “It’s not like school, it’s like a family.” Career Services are made possible in part by the generous support of the J. Warren and Lois McClure Foundation.

t the Bourbeau family farm in Sheldon, an expanse of fields surrounds a brick farmhouse, stout red dairy barns, and a cluster of tidy buildings where maple sap is boiled into syrup. Holsteins poke broad heads through open barn walls. Fields lie in even rows of freshly-mown hay, the grass deep green and fragrant. It is for good reason the family farm has long been a symbol of the culture, traditions, and values of Vermont: this is a place that shows off the work ethic of its people. This is a place where people and land together create a vibrant community. The woman who labors behind the scenes here, who keeps track of each page of paperwork, year after year, is Kimberly Bourbeau. She is the bookkeeper for this nearly 1,200-acre family farm, and her sons are the fourth generation of Bourbeaus to work its land and call it home. Kim is also a 2016 graduate of the Community College of Vermont, where she received an associate degree in administrative management. She is a firstgeneration college graduate. She was raised in a family of eight, and says earning her degree had long been a personal goal. “Our parents always taught us that if you want something, you need to work for it.” In the spring of 2015, Kim enrolled in CCV’s Assessment of Prior Learning, a course through which students earn college credits by demonstrating specific skills gained in a workplace or outside the classroom. Kim requested twenty-five credits: she’d spent over twenty years as a senior administrative assistant; she’d held several leadership positions at the St. Albans Elks Club; she’d spent almost thirty years keeping the books for the farm. At semester’s end, Kim was awarded thirty-two credits. She continued her coursework, ultimately earning enough credits to graduate just one year after completing the APL course—reflecting not only her extraordinary work ethic, but an impressive savings in both time and money. The family farm is vital to the Vermont landscape, and its people to the Vermont community. It is the result of generations who labor tirelessly, and Kimberly Bourbeau is no stranger to this tradition. For her, a college degree is a powerful validation. An education means a stronger contribution. 14 | 2016 ANNUAL REPORT

eter Asch knows one of the keys to building a strong business lies in working with the people who work for him. And the way to do that, he says, is to provide people the opportunities to grow and find satisfaction in their work. “We’re deep believers in training and in truly helping people to better themselves,” said Peter, who is the CEO and co-owner of Twincraft Skincare. “People have to want to help themselves, and if they do, the company is open to it and we’ll also fund it. It’s all about inspiring people and helping them have a better life.” One of the ways Peter and Twincraft are helping the company’s employees is by providing access to CCV’s workforce education offerings. After meetings between the College and members of Asch’s team,

CCV and Twincraft began offering a Principles of Supervision course at Twincraft’s Winooski facility. Approximately a dozen middle managers participated in the program, which included material Asch refers to as “the pillars of management,” i.e. effective communication, goal setting, delegation, how to hire people, and then how to inspire those people. “The response was awesome,” Asch said. “Anytime people are helped to better themselves in life, that’s a big deal; that touches people’s hearts.” Across the state, CCV’s workforce education team is helping to create similar success stories with both large and small businesses. From leadership trainings to career readiness programming to industry-recognized credential courses such as our Certified Production Technician certificate,

our workforce programs have been designed to strengthen Vermont’s workforce and its businesses, and in turn, communities throughout the state. More than 125 companies and organizations have partnered with CCV to bring college-level training and professional development opportunities to their employees. These employers know that investing in workforce training is good business that will produce positive returns in a number of key areas.

employees learn here they can take home and have better relations with anybody they interact with because they’re learning skills they can apply anywhere in life.” Workforce programs are funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Labor.

For Twincraft Skincare, the investment has made everybody feel good about the work they’re doing, Peter said. But the company won’t be resting on its laurels when it comes to training employees and helping them better themselves both in their work and in life.
