Dear Friends: Welcome to CCV’s 2009 Annual Report to the Vermont community. It is my privilege to serve as CCV’s interim president this year and to report to you on the many initiatives under way at Vermont’s community college. For nearly 40 years, the Community College of Vermont has provided excellent educational opportunities to Vermonters who might otherwise not have access to college. Founded in 1970, CCV now enrolls more Vermonters than any other college in the state. In every community, Vermonters are working hard to improve their lives. They enroll at CCV while raising families, working one or more jobs, and trying to make ends meet. CCV is a pathway to better employment and enriched quality of life. While we have a proud history and much to celebrate in the present, CCV strives to improve our programs and services to ensure the future success of every student. We see too many students either postpone or drop out of college, so CCV is finding new ways to help more students complete what they start, whether it’s a course, a certificate program, a college degree or securing gainful employment. In helping our students become more successful, we are also helping to improve the future of Vermont and our economy. Dramatic growth in CCV enrollment—and our students’ success—is good news for all Vermonters. These are high ambitions and we cannot expect to achieve them on our own, nor would we want to. As you’ll see on the pages ahead, an impressive group of supporters and partners is helping CCV reach out to more Vermonters and improve their chances of success through a rich exchange of expertise and services. These collaborations bring the strengths of multiple organizations together, making us all so much more capable of achieving our missions in service to Vermont. You, too, can help foster CCV's success in its work. Refer a student, make a gift to a scholarship fund, volunteer for one of our advisory boards, offer a student an internship in your business, or partner with us to develop new programs and services that will engage those Vermonters who have untapped potential for learning. Our work together will enhance the lives of our students and their contributions to our state. No matter where you live in Vermont, there is a CCV facility near you. We invite you to share with us throughout the year your ideas, your needs, and your feedback on our programming and effectiveness. With warm regards,

Joyce Judy CCV Interim President

CCV: Vermont’s Partner in Higher Education & Workforce Development CCV’s mission is to serve and work with people to realize their learning, life, and career goals. In this increasingly complex world, our mission is best accomplished through partnerships with businesses and community, state and national organizations. These collaborations help CCV better serve Vermonters, from high school students who may not be considering college, to adults seeking new career paths and students who successfully transfer to the many four-year colleges that welcome CCV graduates each year. Here are examples of CCV’s partners in service to Vermont.

STUDENT SUCCESS This year, CCV joined Achieving the Dream, a national initiative of the Lumina Foundation to help more community college students succeed—particularly those students who traditionally face the most significant barriers to success.The program focuses on students’ course completion rates, semester-to-semester retention, and their progress in completing their programs. CCV's participation is made possible through the generous support of the Vermont Community Foundation.

The Vermont Student Assisstance Corporation (VSAC/GEAR-UP) supports CCV’s Introduction to College Studies program at the College’s 12 statewide locations. Students who successfully complete ICS can apply for a free course that can be used at CCV and many colleges across Vermont.

DUAL ENROLLMENT FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS CCV reaches out to students who otherwise might not be considering college after high school with our 13-week Introduction to College Studies (ICS) class, offered at no charge to more than 1,300 Vermont high school and technical center students each year. CCV and the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation partnered through a College Access Challenge grant to create a new website promoting ICS and other dual enrollment programs at CCV and the Vermont State Colleges.

The Nellie Mae Foundation provides program support to help high school students successfully transition to college. The Foundation makes it possible for high school students to enroll in Access to Success, CCV's program for academic skill development. The New England Federal Credit Union sponsors Introduction to College Studies classes in Burlington, St. Albans and Montpelier each year and provides financial literacy instruction in the classes. The J. Warren and Lois McClure Foundation, a supporting foundation of the Vermont Community Foundation, provides funding to help expand Introduction to College Studies to rural locations across Vermont.


WORKFORCE READINESS

COMMUNITY PARTNERS CCV partners with the Teen Employment Center at the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington to train teens on the benefits of college as a step toward a promising career.

Commissioner of the VDOL, Patricia Moulton Powden, and Director of Continuous Learning Pru Sullivan of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters with CCV Interim President Joyce Judy at GMCR facility in Waterbury

The Vermont Department of Labor (VDOL) provides funding for CCV's Career Readiness Certificate program, training more than 450 Vermonters in essential workplace skills. CCV developed the curriculum and worked closely with local VDOL staff to implement the program in several locations this past year. The Vermont Country Store in North Clarendon hosted a section of the course for both employees and the general public from Rutland County. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters offered the course for employees in their Waterbury facility and will offer seven additional sections for their employees in the coming year.

J. J. Williams and Elizabeth McHale co-teach the Career Readiness Certificate course in Bennington.

Executive Director Mary Alice McKenzie with Boys and Girls Club members, Winooski Unit Director David Alofsin, and Ian Boyd, CCV Coordinator of Academic Services

Dozens of professionals across Vermont advise CCV on the design of courses and programs. This year, representatives from police, emergency services, the National Guard and others— more than 25 organizations in all—helped plan CCV’s new Emergency Management program, which provides training in leadership, decision-making and communication in responding to emergencies. A wide spectrum of employers, including resorts, travel services companies, Vermont Parks and Recreation, and Vermont’s Department of Tourism and Marketing advised CCV on the new Hospitality and Tourism program, which will provide a well-trained workforce for careers in Vermont’s fourth largest industry, including courses that address our increasingly global marketplace. CCV is a leading participant in a public-private partnership convened by United Way of Chittenden County to retain and advance employees across all economic back-grounds. A pilot program in Burlington and Montpelier provides on-site support for students and employees facing issues that may interfere with their work. Other partners in this award-winning program include Fletcher Allen Health Care, Rhino Foods, Engelberth Construction and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters.

Students who complete the CCV Career Readiness Certificate may also earn the National Career Readiness Certificate through ACT’s popular WorkKeys program, showing that they have demonstrated reading, computer, math and communication skills that employers most need in the workplace. United Way Resource Coordinator Lisa Jensen provides assistance to CCV students and employees in CCV’s Burlington and Montpelier locations.

CCV Students in New Orleans The Gift of Learning in the First Person On the morning of August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the coast of Louisiana, breaching several levees in the New Orleans area and leaving almost a half million residents homeless in what is considered the most devastating natural disaster in United States history. Today reconstruction efforts continue, rebuilding homes one at a time, often relying on the dedication and hard work of volunteers from around the nation. To aid in this effort, 11 CCV students enrolled in the College’s Social Problems course this spring headed to New Orleans for a service learning experience, and found that, while effecting change in the lives of others, the greatest changes came in their own. Prior to the ten-day journey to New Orleans, veteran CCV faculty member and academic coordinator Mica Deangelis and her co-instructor and husband, Barry Mansfield, led their students through an in-depth study of the complex factors that contributed to the city’s devastation. The assigned class readings were each written in the first person, foreshadowing the very personal nature of the

learning that would take place for these students as they immersed themselves in the experiences of those they would soon be meeting. In partnership with the New Orleans Rebirth Volunteer Center, Deangelis and Mansfield brought the group to the Lower Ninth Ward, one of the city’s most affected areas, to help make a difference. “Students worked on rebuilding homes side by side with those families and bonded immediately. We scraped woodwork, painted walls, rebuilt wrought iron gates, and renovated a bathroom,” recounts Deangelis. “Another group of our students worked in a food shelf, making repairs to the structure and serving food to the needy.” Realizing that the food shelf may be shut down if remaining repairs are not completed, these students are continuing their service to the New Orleans region by holding fundraising efforts back home in Vermont. While students took on many roles in New Orleans, from caulking walls to chiseling bricks to serving food, perhaps their most enduring contributions were an open heart and an attentive ear. In one student’s words, “I learned that age doesn’t matter when it comes to making connections and becoming friends.” For most of the student volunteers, it was they who received the greatest of gifts in the form of personal growth. Student Sarah Krasue summed up this shared feeling: “I got lost in the work and experience of New Orleans and realized that when you are doing work for others, those who need help and are so appreciative, it is work that deeply feeds your soul.”


CCV Faculty: Key to Student Success CCV’s community-based faculty plays an essential role in student academic success. This year, four of the College’s more than 600 faculty members received awards for their excellence in teaching. The awards were presented at the College’s Faculty Summer Institute, a professional development day supported in part by the CCV Endowment for Teaching and Learning. The faculty award recipients were Charles Emond, Greg Matses, Eleanor Wilson, and Heather Woodworth. Charles Emond teaches online courses from his home in Thailand, including Western Civilization and Homosexuality in Western Civilization. Emond was recognized for “creating a climate of mutual respect among all participants in the classroom.” Emond holds a B.A. from Queens College, a M.A. from Keene State College and a M.L.S. from Dartmouth College. Greg Matses teaches Guitar I & II, Introduction to Rock & Roll, and Guitar Ensemble at the College’s Burlington location. His nomination stated, “Greg is uncompromising in his commitment to the progress of every student.” Matses holds a B.A. from Colby College. Dr. Eleanor Wilson lives in North Carolina and teaches Financial Accounting and Managerial Accounting, both

online. Eleanor is “extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter, and her caring for students as individual learners is clearly evident.” She has a B.A. from Boise State University, a M.B.A. from University of Maryland, and an Ed.D. from Temple University. Heather Woodworth, who teaches English Composition and World Mythology at the Burlington CCV location, was acknowledged for “her passion regarding the academic and personal growth of her students.” She has a B.S. from Southern Connecticut State University and a M.A.T. from the University of Vermont.

Scholarship Programs CCV awards hundreds of scholarships each year to assist students in meeting their educational expenses. Although CCV is Vermont’s most affordable college, many students are only able to pay for their education if they have considerable financial assistance. Much of our scholarship assistance from gifts and endowment earnings goes directly to students to help with their costs. CCV's Endowment for Student Success, established by former Vermont State Colleges Board of Trustees member Janet F. Gillette, supports students in CCV's Access to Success and other programs. CCV’s Leah M. Kalb Memorial Fund was established in memory of former CCV President Kenneth Kalb's wife, Leah. Now one of CCV’s largest named endowments, the scholarship supports adult women students enrolled in business programs. Bob and Lois Frey started the Jennifer Frey Memorial Scholarship in memory of their daughter Jennifer, CCV class of 1997. Each year, the Frey scholars from Montpelier and Morrisville receive direct support for their tuition expenses. CCV's newest named scholarship program, the Urban and Pauline Bergeron Memorial Scholarship, is awarded to a Chittenden County student who demonstrates financial need, has good academic standing at CCV, and has lived in Vermont for 10 years or more. 2009 Burlington High School graduate William Bigelow was the first student to receive the Hunter Dandridge Memorial Scholarship. The $2,500 scholarship is established in memory of former Burlington High School student Hunter Dandridge and is awarded each year to a Burlington High School graduate who enrolls at CCV. This scholarship is also funded by the Bergeron Family Foundation. The President’s Scholarship is supported through gifts from a variety of donors and is used to assist academically promising students at CCV.

Former President Tim Donovan presents the 2009 Alumni Scholarship to Martha Machar and her son.

The Linnell Fund, made possible by the longtime support of Merle Linnell and the late Robert Linnell of Lebanon, NH, supports CCV students in the St. Albans area, providing assistance for essential needs such as tuition and textbooks. This year more than 70 CCV students enrolled full-time with support from the State of Vermont's Next Generation Scholarship program. Alumni Association Scholarships are awarded to one or two graduates who are continuing their studies at a four-year institution. The scholarships are almost entirely funded by the generous donations of CCV alumni and are presented each year at the College’s commencement ceremony. The Yolande Corbin Chadwick Scholarship supports women who have children and who are enrolled in CCV degree programs in the Burlington area.

Endowment for Student Success This fund supports deserving students whose chances for realizing success will be strengthened by gifts of aid and whose needs are not met by other sources.
