Letter from the Board Chairman
Message from the President
Message from the Foundation
SO MANY IMPORTANT THINGS HAPPENED AT THE COLLEGE THIS YEAR. We experienced record enrollments. Our reviewers reaﬃrmed our accreditation. We assumed a leadership role in a community college consortium dedicated to advancing sustainability and the green economy. is year, however, the most far-reaching event in the life of the college was the process to create a comprehensive strategic plan because it will guide our priorities and decisions for the future. For this reason, this year’s annual report focuses on the Strategic Plan, its impact on the institution and how it is aﬀecting the lives of our students.
WITH ENROLLMENTS SURGING AND STATE FUNDING LEVELS INCREASINGLY IN QUESTION, the board of trustees focused intensely on finances this year. Our top priority was ensuring that even in uncertain times, our students and community could count on the College of Lake County to provide a highâ€“quality education. With that goal in mind, we approved a conservative budget for Fiscal Year 2010, minimizing discretionary spending, emphasizing instructional needs and setting aside contingency funds in the event that expected state support did not materialize. Because of this careful approach, we were able to grow our fund balance from 18 to 23 percent of operating expenditures.
ough careful budgeting sustained us through this year, we anticipate that more lean years may follow. We are continuing our conservative budget practices in Fiscal Year 2011, and we are working with our college administration on several initiatives to ensure the long-term fiscal health of the college, the most important being implementation of our new strategic plan and its supporting operational plans. Acknowledging the importance of the strategic plan, we are devoting this year’s annual report to it. Unquestionably, these are uncertain times. But over the college’s 40-plus-year history, CLC has repeatedly proved that challenges only make us better. We truly believe that ordinary people, working together with common purpose, can achieve extraordinary results.

“THE BEST WAY TO PREDICT THE FUTURE IS TO CREATE IT,” said management consultant Peter Drucker. at is a sentiment we at the College of Lake County share, and it is the reason we devoted much of Fiscal Year 2010 to conducting a strategic planning process. is year’s annual report charts the process we used in creating our new strategic plan, its components and how we’re starting to implement it. It is the pathway we will take to address pressing issues facing our students and community, among them: How can we increase student success and graduation rates? How do we maintain educational quality in a tight funding environment? How do we keep our academic programs relevant to the district’s needs and future workforce trends? We are proud to say, we already are working to answer these questions. We hope you enjoy reading about our goals and our progress in achieving them.
Jerry Weber, Ph.D. President College of Lake County
AS WE WATCHED THE ECONOMY STRUGGLING TO RECOVER this year, the members of the CLC Foundation board heard first-hand reports about the importance of the Foundation’s support of the college’s students. One student told us, “Receiving this scholarship is a huge relief to my parents.” Another said, “e scholarship has made it less stressful to achieve my goals. I can take more classes and work fewer hours.” Currently, one in five CLC students receives some form of financial aid. State and federal financial aid provided almost $14 million in support for these students this year, and the Foundation contributed another $550,000 toward scholarships. Still, many students were turned away or awarded less support than they needed. (In Illinois, about 70,000 community college students were denied assistance because funding ran out.) With so much need to be met, the CLC Foundation, like the college, has adopted a strategic plan, which is serving as our pathway to increasing support for the college and its students. Details of that plan, including our work on the exploratory phase of a major scholarship campaign, are included in the “Flourishing Futures” section of this annual report.
Ben Randazzo President CLC Foundation Board of Directors
Independence Grove, Libertyville, Illinois 2009
IT ALL STARTED BY BRINGING A CROSS SECTION OF COLLEGE LEADERS, FACULTY AND STAFF TOGETHER TO DO WHAT ACADEMICS LOVE TO DO: ask questions and ponder answers. What is CLCâ€™s core mission? Why are we here? How are we doing? What opportunities and challenges lie ahead? How can we serve our district better? How do we actually do it?
What followed was a year of institutional soul-searching, deep thinking, and, yes, number crunching. all for the purpose of developing a plan that sets these priorities for the next several years.
Lake Michigan, Waukegan Harbor, Illinois 2009
OUR VALUES PERMEATE EVERYTHING WE DO. Learning Compels us to create an atmosphere of academic excellence and life-long learning by pursuing the best ideas, approaches and methods. Included in this value are a spirit of leadership and innovation.
Integrity Requires us to work together honestly and respectfully.
Quality Commits us to ongoing continuous improvement and excellence.
Service Calls on us to serve as a force for improving the educational, economic, social and cultural quality of life of our students and the community. Included in this value are a spirit of collaboration, dedication and compassion.
Accountability Guides us to be responsible and exercise good stewardship.
Diversity Drives us to embrace and respect the uniqueness of students, employees and community members.
living our values WHEN LATE STATE PAYMENTS threatened to turn into an actual funding cut this year, college leaders found themselves relying on deeply held values to guide decision making on how to deal with a possible serious revenue shortfall. How CLC weathered the threat shows that words like “integrity,” “service” and “accountability” aren’t just abstractions for the college. ey are words to live by. President Jerry Weber and the college vice presidents spoke candidly to employees about the budget issue, holding a series of forums. Managers were involved in making the decisions on what areas to cut, if the shortfall occurred. And college leaders met with the Student Government Association to explain that concerns over the state’s fiscal condition would likely require a tuition increase in the 2010-2011 academic year.
THE RESULT? Expenditures that weren’t required for instruction were delayed. And though the college eventually received all its state payments for the year, the college continued to be exceptionally vigilant about budgets. Given continued uncertainty about state funding levels for the 2010-2011 academic year, the Student Government Association backed a plan to increase tuition by $9 and fees by $2 per credit hour, with the fee increase going to work study, child care, tutoring and other services for students.
Students like Darren Glover, 45, are the true reflections of our values. Glover was one of many students who benefitted from a decision to allocate a portion of the required tuition increase to work-study financial aid for students in need. A mid-life career changer, Glover is preparing for a nontraditional career in administrative office systems.

THINK OF OUR MISSION AS REFLECTING THE NEEDS OF OUR DISTRICT: Providing a start on a bachelor’s degree. Preparing a career with a future. Oﬀering a way to explore life’s deepest questions for oneself.
mission: aﬀordable, quality education OVER MORE THAN 40 YEARS, CLC has been the pathway to an education for more than 400,000 students. For many, it has been the best, and even only pathway. at certainly has been true in the past year, when the U.S., and Lake County, battled the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. Little wonder that, like community colleges across the nation, CLC experienced record enrollments. attracting 18,092 students in Fall 2009 and 18,567 in Spring 2010.
WHO WERE THESE STUDENTS? Recent high school graduates experiencing sticker shock (along with their parents) at the high cost of university tuition. Laid oﬀ workers preparing for new careers when the economy recovers. Employed adults seeking stronger skills and more job security. People of all ages seeking a more enriching life.
Pablo Astudillo is one of the more than 18,000 students who are enrolled at the College of Lake County in search of a better life. A 2010 graduate of Stevenson High School, he excelled academically and was accepted at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois Wesleyan and Santa Clara University in California. But the price tag of four-year colleges stood as a major roadblock. Acceptance into CLCâ€™s Honors Scholar Program provided a way for Astudillo to get the high-quality education he wanted, offering a full scholarship for tuition and textbooks, an on-campus job and a faculty mentor in his chosen field, accounting.

WE ARE BUILDING ON MAJOR CLC STRENGTHS— highly qualified, committed faculty and staﬀ, strong student satisfaction ratings, alumni success, and education, business and community partnerships— to pursue our vision.
college vision The College of Lake County strives to be an innovative educational institution offering exceptional learning experiences and to be widely recognized for student success, business and community partnerships and for the achievements of faculty, staff and alumni.
“Aim for the stars and maybe you’ll reach the sky.” —aNONyMOUs
realizing the vision A VISION SHOULD BE LIKE THE STARS: THERE TO GUIDE AND INSPIRE. But unlike the stars, it should be near enough to oﬀer the tantalizing possibility of one day reaching it.
WHAT IS CLC’S VISION? A college that personally engages every student, inside and outside the classroom, nurturing their abilities and helping each succeed and graduate. A college that oﬀers academic programs that fully meet the district’s needs, seeing and anticipating the knowledge and career preparation that will be needed as the future unfolds. A college that is transparent and accountable in its operations, continuously improving and using its resources wisely for a sustainable future. A college committed to promoting the importance of diversity and global engagement, believing that the strength of our institution and community comes both from our shared values and from our unique perspectives, beliefs, customs and traditions. A college whose reputation is based on achievements that speak for themselves.
An important part of CLC’s vision for academic excellence is personally engaging all students, helping them challenge and develop their abilities. Honors Scholar Andrew Metzger, of Lake Villa, and Waukegan High School senior Leticia Lazcano represent just two of the ways the college is realizing that vision. Metzger, a formerly home-schooled student, is an Honors Scholar and competed in a national forensics competition in his freshman year, winning a silver medal. With aspirations to become a teacher, he believes his CLC experiences are preparing him well for transfer. Lazcano, a violinist who wishes to become a music teacher, attended CLC’s College Readiness Summit in November 2010. The event, held as part of a CLC project to prepare high school students for college, drew Lazcano and 350 other students from area high schools. “College is like a castle in the air,” she said, “but it is a castle that can be reached. We have to work hard to get up there, but step by step, we can do it.” Read more of Andrew and Leticia’s stories at www.clcillinois.edu/annualreport.
THE STRATEGIC PLAN IS THE BRIDGE TO OUR VISION, and it is supported by several pillars: personally engaging students inside and outside the classroom, fostering partnerships with educational institutions, businesses and community groups and developing distinctive areas of academic expertise.
Rollins Savanna, Grayslake, Illinois, Fall 2009
Strategic planning is about working toward a dream and measuring how far we’ve come and how far we’ve yet to travel. Each of the strategic plan goals will have outcome measures—“key performance indicators” established by benchmarking how the college is doing against peer institutions. The outcome measures are being developed in the 2010-2011 academic year, and in each case, a target will be set that’s challenging but achievable.
“Make no little plans; they have no magic.... Make big plans, aim high in hope and work.” — DaNIeL h. BUrNhaM
strategic planning goals ADVANCE STUDENT LEARNING AND SUCCESS. Among themes included: Improve graduation and transfer rates and increase retention of at-risk students, including veterans and male African-American and Latino students. MAXIMIZE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY WITHIN THE DISTRICT. Among themes included: Increase enrollment of recent high school graduates, minority males, veterans and returning adult males. Increase access to programs at the Lakeshore and Southlake campuses. Match program oﬀerings to district needs. Partner with the University Center of Lake County and other institutions to increase university transfer options. ENSURE INSTITUTIONAL SUSTAINABILITY AND STEWARDSHIP OF RESOURCES. Among themes included: Develop financial plans to ensure a sustainable future, leverage technology for greater productivity and eﬃciency, apply sustainability practices throughout college operations, improve space utilization, expand external and non-traditional funding sources. PROMOTE DIVERSITY AND GLOBAL ENGAGEMENT AS STRENGTHS WITHIN THE COLLEGE AND LAKE COUNTY COMMUNITY. Among themes included: Improve international education opportunities, recruit and retain underrepresented students, staﬀ and faculty, infuse diversity and multiculturalism in the curriculum. ENABLE A CULTURE OF INNOVATION, EXCELLENCE AND CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT. Among themes included: Engage employees to create and sustain a culture of high performance, intellectual growth, collaboration and innovation that supports continuous improvement of academic programs and college processes. BUILD THE COLLEGE’S REPUTATION AS A PREMIER EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION. Among themes included: Build and promote the college’s brand as one based on academic quality, alumni achievements and collaborations with community-based organizations, employers and college and university partners.
Partnerships with educational institutions, businesses and community groups are an important tool for achieving CLC’s strategic goals. The college’s partnership with the University Center of Lake County, for example, is a major avenue toward maximizing educational opportunity in Lake County. Twenty-two-year-old Ana Karan Gaytan is a case in point. At the University Center of Lake County, she is fulfilling her goal of earning a bachelor’s degree and continuing on to graduate school in social psychology or clinical psychology. Gaytan graduated from CLC with highest honors and now works part-time in CLC’s Social Sciences Division office. While taking classes at the University Center of Lake County, she is also working as a research assistant for her Northeastern Illinois University psychology adviser and was selected as one of only 12 NEIU students chosen for the prestigious McNair Scholar program.

ALTHOUGH IMPLEMENTATION OF THE STRATEGIC PLAN IS A WORK IN PROGRESS, WE ARE OFF TO A GOOD START IN WORKING TOWARD ITS GOALS, AS THESE ACHIEVEMENTS AND NEW INITIATIVES SHOW.
SURGING ENROLLMENTS While the economy could at times this year be described as being in free-fall, enrollments surged, reaching a record 18,567 students in the Spring 2010 Semester—a 9 percent increase over the previous year. Accommodating this enrollment in a period of threatened loss of state funding required limiting discretionary spending and focusing on what matters most— instruction. Maintaining low class sizes, CLC was yet able to manage the growth through such steps as expanding the number of course sections oﬀered at the Lakeshore and Southlake campuses and managing classroom space better on the Grayslake campus. Following an analysis of projected future enrollment trends, the college will add five new full-time faculty positions for the 2011-2012 academic year.
HONORS SCHOLARS PILOT e college has long had an Honors Program, oﬀering high-performing students more challenging learning assignments and the opportunity to receive CLC Foundation scholarships. Expanding on these opportunities, the college this year launched the Honors Scholars Program, which pairs each participating student with a faculty mentor and provides a full scholarship for tuition and books and an opportunity to do an academically meaningful work-study experience. Eight students were admitted to the Honors Scholars pilot for the 2010-2011 academic year, and the college hopes to expand the number of students admitted next year.
ACADEMIC PROGRAMS TO MEET DISTRICT NEEDS Keeping academic programs relevant to a fast-changing economy is an ongoing challenge, met by a regular cycle of academic program reviews. New initiatives resulting from such reviews this year: emerging technology programs in photonics and nanoscience; a spa-standard Health and Wellness Center, home of the college’s growing massage therapy and fitness programs; a revamped hospitality program for the growing food service and hospitality industry; and sustainability-focused modifications in the automotive technology and heating and air conditioning engineering technology programs; and a new nursing curriculum emphasizing the critical thinking skills nurses must use in today’s clinical settings.
COLLEGE CO M PLE T ION Community colleges were founded on a very democratic idea—that everyone should have a chance to pursue a college education. By keeping tuition aﬀordable, and oﬀering degree and certificate programs close to home, community colleges have done a great job of expanding access to college. Even so, statistics show that the U.S. no longer leads the world in producing adult college graduates. President Barack Obama, therefore, is challenging higher education, and particularly community colleges, to make America the world leader again in college degreed workers by 2020. CLC is taking first steps to meet President Obama’s challenge. rough a new advising center and programs like Men of Vision and rive, aimed at providing mentoring, tutoring and other retention support services, the college has focused on a variety of interventions to help students at risk of dropping out, and data for the last five years show several positive trends. e number of students who continue from fall to spring semester, for example, has risen from 63 percent to 69 percent, and the number of students who continue from one year to the next has increased from 43 percent to 50 percent.
HISPANIC SERVING INSTITUTIONS PARTNERSHIP Battling the college completion issue on another front, CLC joined Northeastern Illinois University as a partner in that institution’s successful eﬀorts to win a Department of Education Title V: Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions grant. Under the five-year, $3.5 million grant, CLC is working with NIEU to increase student academic success, retention, transfer rates and graduation rates at both institutions. In the first year of the grant, CLC served 555 students through such services as financial aid and student success workshops, one-on-one coaching, peer mentoring, parent orientations and orientations for military veterans.
COLLEGE READINESS CLC was one of seven community colleges selected to participate in the state’s College and Career Readiness program aimed at establishing community and educational partnerships to help K-12 students become “college ready.” (Nationwide, a growing number of entering freshmen do not meet proficiency requirements for college-level study.) CLC used its $71,000 grant for several initiatives, including holding a College Readiness Summit in June to convene college and K-12 faculty and administrators to explore solutions to the issue. e college also oﬀered three sections of a course to prepare high school students for college-level English. Eighty-four percent of the students met CLC’s language proficiency requirements for college-level work aer completing the course.
GOING GREEN Over the last two years, CLC has successfully obtained almost $900,000 in state, federal and other funds to help the college and Lake County adopt sustainability practices. Some of the funding has already been used; other grants will fund initiatives in Fiscal Year 2011. Leading the initiatives is creation of CLC’s Sustainability Center and participation as a leader in the Illinois Green Economy Network, a consortium of community colleges working to adopt sustainability practices and build the state’s green economy. Among other the projects funded: retrofitting more energy eﬃcient lighting and installing two solar-heated hot water systems (Grayslake campus), creating student internships to work on a green corridor along the Lake Michigan shore, developing curricula on green building energy technologies and oﬀering weatherization training.
FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY rough conservative budgeting, the college increased its financial safety net this year by growing its end-of-year fund balance to 23 percent of annual expenditures. For the ninth year in a row, the college received a certificate of achievement for the completeness and transparency of its financial reporting from the Government Finance Oﬃcers Association of the United States and Canada for the annual financial report covering the 2008-2009 fiscal year.
GLOBAL ENGAGEMENT In just four years, CLC has transformed its international education oﬀerings from the shortterm field study trips commonly oﬀered by community colleges into an award-winning comprehensive program. In January 2010, CLC established a Center for International Education, which serves as a central oﬃce to handle recruitment and issues of international students as well as many other international programs and activities for students and faculty. Over the last two years, the college has oﬀered semester study-abroad opportunities in China, and in the 2010-2011 academic year will oﬀer a three-week overseas study in India. In February 2010, CLC won the Institute for International Education’s Andrew Heiskell Award for best study abroad program at a community college. During fall semester 2010, 120 students from 39 diﬀerent countries enrolled at CLC.
CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT is year’s strategic planning process resulted in both a strategic plan and a process for continually updating it that includes establishing outcome measures, a yearly reexamination of environmental trends aﬀecting the college and a more integrated approach to matching budgeting to strategic goals.
REPUTATION BUILDING During the strategic planning process, the college received feedback from many students indicating that their actual CLC experience greatly exceeded what they expected based on outmoded stereotypes of community colleges. With community college enrollments surging nationwide, these stereotypes are starting to break down, and CLC is building on this trend by this year beginning a branding project to develop consistent verbal and visual communications that better convey what is compelling and meaningful in the CLC educational experience.
Rollins Savanna, Grayslake, Illinois 2009
WITH STATE SCHOLARSHIP FUNDING IN QUESTION, and the economic downturn continuing to aﬀect students’ ability to aﬀord college, the future landscape could look less than lush. But in the College of Lake County Foundation, CLC has a special partner, working to provide a flourishing future for the college and its students.
foundation mission The College of Lake County Foundation provides additional resources in support of the educational goals of the college. It also encourages and promotes activities to create a positive environment for student, faculty and staff success, which contribute to the viability and well-being of our community.
flourishing futures “Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: You don’t give up.” —aNNe LaMOtt
funding hope FIVE GOALS GUIDE THE FOUNDATION IN ITS FUNDRAISING WORK:
Provide necessary financial support to the College of Lake County, its students and its faculty and staﬀ. Secure and grow the financial future of the Foundation. Maintain the eﬀectiveness and involvement of the Foundation Board in responding to its mission. Further strengthen community relationships. Expand the number of people involved in actively supporting and participating in fundraising eﬀorts.
Honors student Nikki Rodio describes the CLC Foundation scholarship she received as a “huge relief for my parents” and a big boost for her self-confidence. “Receiving this scholarship has really made me feel like all my hard work has paid off,” she said. In addition to receiving Foundation support for her courses in CLC’s Honors Program, Rodio works in Financial Aid and was a peer mentor, helping other students. Read more of Nikki Rodio’s story at www.clcillinois.edu/annualreport.
SCHOLARSHIP CAMPAIGN Even though CLC prides itself on being students’ most aﬀordable college option, one in five students receives some form of financial aid. Even so, many continue to struggle. In a district with a median household income of nearly $80,000, the average annual family income of Pell grant students is just under $23,000. Not surprisingly, this year, on average, financial aid and family support runs short of meeting these students’ basic living expenses by about $2,500. Recognizing the scope of the unmet need for financial support for students, the CLC Foundation this year made the decision to launch a comprehensive campaign for scholarships, which will begin with a “lead gis” phase in the 2010-2011 academic year.
FISCAL YEAR 2010 SCHOLARSHIPS In Fiscal Year 2010, the CLC Foundation provided students with $550,000 in scholarship support, making 857 awards. Over the previous five years, the Foundation awarded $1.9 million in scholarships, supporting 3,530 students.
HONORS PROGRAM Among the eight general categories of scholarships oﬀered by the Foundation is support for students enrolled in the college’s Honors Program. Seventy honors students received scholarships totaling over $34,000 this year.
COLLEGE READINESS Each year the Foundation provides $20,000 in support for “I Have a Dream®,” a program to encourage a class of North Chicago students to succeed in school and continue on to college. e students, who are now high school sophomores, began participating in the program in kindergarten. e program, which provides tutoring, cultural enrichment and other support services, will also provide college scholarship support for the students.
TEXTBOOK LIBRARY LOAN PROGRAM To help combat rising textbooks costs, the CLC Alumni Association joined forces with the college library to launch a textbook loan program. CLC re-allocated about $8,000 to the project from other academic funding, student fees provided $5,000 and the CLC Alumni Association donated $3,000 toward the project. Focused on high-cost textbooks used in three or more sections of a course, the project allowed the library to purchase 256 textbooks, which students checked out more than 2,300 times.
COMMUNITY RELATIONSHIPS To create greater awareness of the Foundation’s mission and the needs of the college and its students, Foundation staﬀ launched a speaking tour this year, making presentations to service clubs and community organizations.
STRENGTHENING THE FOUNDATION BOARD e Foundation board actively recruited new members this year, increasing membership from 36 to 40.
