NEWS Community Care Network, CSJ Partner to Bring Students to CSJ
Lorraine Jenne, CCN, and James Lambert, CSJ, sign a partnership agreement offering discounted tuition to CCN employees
Community Care Network and College of St. Joseph have partnered to make college more affordable and accessible to CCN employees and their families. The partnership, through CSJ’s corporate cohort program, offers CSJ’s associate, bachelor and graduate programs to CCN employees at a reduced tuition rate. Additionally, CCN has developed a tuition reimbursement program for its employees in tandem with the CSJ agreement. “Supporting a trained human services workforce with higher education is a priority for Community Care Network,” said Dick Courcelle, CEO. “Attaining college credits can be costly. This partnership with CSJ presents an affordable solution for our organization to help our employees pay for their professional education. And our employees receive the education they need to advance in their careers.” James Lambert, Vice President for

External Affairs at CSJ, said the College has long met the educational needs of many CCN employees, particularly with its undergraduate and graduate offerings in Psychology & Human Services. This partnership brings all of CSJ’s degree programs, including allied health and the Master of Business Administration program, to CCN employees at a discounted rate. “We are proud to partner with another of the region’s great employers to make college more accessible to more than 400 families in the area,” Lambert said. “Community Care Network should be recognized for making a major investment in its employees and the Rutland Region. This is just another example of the positive energy that we are seeing build in and around Rutland.” Through the College’s corporate cohort program, participating businesses and organizations like CCN can cultivate and retain well-rounded, highly-qualified
employees. In addition to academic instruction, CSJ will provide CCN employees with invaluable resources and a broad range of academic support services, including academic advising, access to the CSJ campus – including the recently renovated Giorgetti Library – and academic support, as needed, through the CSJ Learning Center. About Community Care Network Community Care Network is comprised of Rutland Mental Health Services and Rutland Community Programs, which together make up a consortium of health, human service, employment and rehabilitation programs serving the greater Rutland Region. CCN employs and contracts with more than 400 individuals, offering a variety of employment opportunities for individuals interested in helping to meet the many needs of our community. CCN enhances the well-being of the community, individuals and families through responsive, innovative and collaborative human services.
NEWS CSJ students to develop curriculum for an exhibit at the Museum. The partnership began in the spring of 2016, when Dr. David St. Germain, chair of the College’s Education division, met with Wonderfeet’s Executive Director Myra Peffer to determine if there was a way students could apply the skills they were learning in the classroom at the Museum.
Residence Life Staff welcome new students during new student move-in day
CSJ Welcomes Class of 2021 The newest members of the CSJ family arrived on campus Thursday, Aug. 24 when freshmen and transfer students moved into the College’s residence halls. Residence Life staff helped unpack cars filled with plastic totes, chairs, boxed microwaves and mini-fridges, welcoming the more than 80 incoming students to their new home.
is from Vermont,” he said. “Our local market has treated us well.” LaBate is also proud of the scholarly capabilities of the incoming class. “This class has the highest combined GPA of any of the most recent incoming classes,” he said.
LaBate is excited about the number of Vermont students who have chosen to attend College of St. Joseph this fall. “Our biggest haul this enrollment cycle
“Collaboration with CSJ Education students is a mutually beneficial partnership. The museum gets creative ideas that we can use to expand the experiences for families and schools,” Peffer said. St. Germain informed students in his Curriculum Development course last fall that one of their assignments would involve developing curriculum for Wonderfeet Kids Museum.
For many of the College’s new students, home is several hundred miles away, if not more. “We have 13 students coming to CSJ from Florida. We also are welcoming students from Virginia, Texas, Rhode Island, New Mexico, North Carolina, Missouri, Louisiana, Georgia, and Arizona,” said Ken LaBate, vice president of student recruitment and admissions. “We’ve doubled our international student enrollment, with individuals coming from Turkey, Honduras, and Canada.”
The Museum had recently named Paula Townsend, a retired teacher from Rutland Town School, as its director of education and she began collaborating with St. Germain to best identify the needs of the Museum, which served more than 17,000 visitors in 2016 alone.

Students Garrett Brewer, Aaron Bloomer and Phil Hall selected the Lego exhibit to develop a minimum of three lesson plans, student assessments, and technology and print resources. The final document produced by the students was more than 10 pages, and Townsend worked with the museum’s education committee to modify and condense the work. “The end result is a booklet any parent could use to guide his or her child through the exhibit and develop an understanding of certain scientific principles they might not otherwise be aware of,” St. Germain said.

The Saints took down Southern Maine Community College in a 7-6 contest, and New Hampshire Technical Institute on two separate occasions, first in a 15-7 win followed by a 10-inning, 6-5 win the following day. CSJ was unable to take down NHTI when it counted, though, and fell 9-0 in the YSCC semifinals. The Fighting Saints seek to reclaim the YSCC Championship title, a feat they accomplished for the first time at the end of the 2015-2016 season.

Dr. James Curtis
Assistant Professor of English Dr. James Curtis sat down with us for this issue's faculty focus. Q: What did you do before coming to College of St. Joseph? A: Before coming to CSJ, I spent two years working at Tougaloo College, a private, historically black college in Jackson, Miss. Q: What is your educational background? A: I received my Master's from Middle Tennessee State University and my PhD from the University of Southern Mississippi. Q: What do you like most about teaching? A: What I like most about teaching is the sense of fulfillment I get from seeing the learning process in action. Q: What attracted you to College of St. Joseph?
10 College of St. Joseph | The Provider
A: What attracted me to College of St. Joseph was the sense of community and family that the faculty and administration emphasized. Q: What are you most enjoying so far about working here? A: So far, I am enjoying the variety of classes that I have been given the opportunity to teach most. Q: What is the one thing you hope your students will take away from your classes, or having you as a professor? A: One thing I hope my students will take away from any class I teach is a genuine love of learning. Q: Fill in the blank. Before graduating, every student should _____________. A: Before graduating, every student should consider all paths for moving forward after college.
Q: What is your favorite place on campus? A: My favorite place on campus is the bench beside the pond. It is a great place to sit and relax. Q: What's something about your area of expertise that you can share that will make us sound smarter at parties? A: Since I specialize in children's/young adult lit â€“ and everyone seems to have at least a passing familiarity with the Lord of the Rings series â€“ you could always tell people that Tolkien was much more interested in creating the mythos and languages of various races in the series than he was in actually telling the story of one or two hobbits. And that he only really finished the series at the request of C.S. Lewis. Q: What are some of your other hobbies and interests? A: My other hobbies include playing music and gaming.
PROVIDER PROGRAM Provider Scholars complete 253 hours of service during orientation The newest members of the College of St. Joseph community learned what it means to be a provider during the College’s day of service on Aug. 26. Students piled into several CSJ buses and vans early in the morning to be dropped off at eight locations across the city to perform the first four of their 15 required hours of community service through the Provider Scholarship Program. “64 new students, four residence directors, eight residence advisors, and one staff member completed 253 hours of service,” said CSJ’s Vice President of Student Affairs Melissa Paradee. Four students joined Downtown Rutland Partnership Executive Director Steve Peters to clean up downtown, including weeding around more than 25 parking meters and lamp posts on West Street, Center Street, and Merchants Row. A large group of students put on hard hats to help with a Habitat for Humanity build on Cleveland Avenue. Another group went to Jen’s Motel, a transitional housing facility, to help spruce up the building, including painting the foundation and lawn maintenance.

“All I can say is wow. I didn’t have enough work ready for them. I had some plan B stuff, but we ended up doing all of that, too,” said Patrick Higgins, who oversees the BROC program. “These kids are not afraid of work. I’m impressed and grateful beyond words.”
Students got their hands dirty clearing a new trail at Pine Hill Park and sprucing up West Street Cemetery, while others helped prepare for the community lunch at Trinity Church and to clean and organize play areas at Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum. The community connections were formed after Paradee asked Project VISION’s former executive director Scott Tucker to send an email requesting community engagement partners. 10 organizations and individuals responded to the College’s request. New students typically complete one hour of service at one location during orientation as an introduction to the Provider Program, but Paradee wanted to give students a greater taste of the Program and the impact they can have on the greater Rutland community during their four years as a student at CSJ. Provider Scholars will continue working toward their 15 hours of service every Wednesday throughout the semester at organizations across Rutland County.

ALUMNI & FAMILY WEEKEND CSJ students, alumni, friends, and family members gathered on Sept. 29-30 for Alumni & Family Weekend. The weekend kicked off with an alumni social on Friday evening in Clementwood Mansion. The fun continued on Saturday with a day full of family activities, including chair massages, campus tours, a family fun center, brunch, and the presentation of alumni and athletic awards. The College recognized Brooke (Haley) Kimball '00 and '04, and Scott Louiselle '09 with distinguished alumni awards. Kimball is a special educator at Otter Valley Union High School, while Louiselle is currently employed at Community Care Network (Rutland Mental Health). They were honored for their contributions to the community and the College. Eight student-athletes and two nationalchampionship winning coaches were inducted into the College's Athletic Hall of Fame, including the 2015-16 USCAA National Championshipwinning women's basketball team, Rahiem Smalls, and baseball coaches Bob Godlewski and Cameron Curler, who led the Fighting Saints to back-to-back national championships in 2016 and 2017. Godlewski took the opportunity to raise more than $600 for those affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, calling it the "CSJ way." Smalls took to the court in Saturday's alumni versus student basketball game, alongside powerhouse alumni players Doug Childs, Kareem Brown, Travis Threewitts, Anthony Paul, and more. The weekend concluded on Sunday with the College's first-ever alumni versus student baseball game. The Saints returned graduates Jordan Matos, Tyler Demers, and many others for the alumni team.

ALUMNI FEATURE grateful for? A: I am grateful for the friendships that were formed and the foundation that was built for my future. Q: What are you currently doing for work? A: I am the operations coordinator at Serenity House in Wallingford, Vt. Q: How did your time at CSJ prepare your for your career? A: Classes were taught by professionals who shared real life experiences in my career field. CSJ also provided opportunities to network within the community that added to my foundation.
Jessica Giffin graduated in May 2017 with a Bachelor's Degree in Alcohol & Substance Abuse Counseling. While at CSJ, she participated in Governor Phil Scott's statewide summit, which addressed challenges in treating substance abuse disorders. Q: Tell us a little about yourself. A: I am originally from Louisville, Ky. I am married with three children. My family and I moved from New York to Vermont three years ago for my husband's job. Q: How did you become interested in studying substance and alcohol abuse conceling? A: While living in New York, I had the opportunity to intern within the drug court system.

Q: Why did you choose to attend CSJ? A: It is a local school that offered the program I was looking for. I was scared to get back in the classroom after so many years, but the small class sizes and family feel was what I needed to move forward. Q: Who was your favorite faculty or staff member and why? A: It would be impossible to pick only one faculty member. Every faculty member added value to my experience. However, three stand out: Dr. Walsh, Paula McGhee, and Susan Boyce. Each one believed in me more than I could ever believe in myself. They helped me find my voice and provided me with everything needed to be successful. Q: When you look back at your time at CSJ, what are you most
Q: What did you gain from attending CSJ that you feel you could not have received elsewhere? A: Due to the small number of students in my program, a lot of my classes were directed study. This allowed me to get a one-on-one education while gaining working knowledge of the field. Q: Tell us a little about your achievement at CSJ, and of which are you most proud of? A: I had the pleasure of participating in the Provider Program, as well as Human Services Club and the Blue and White Honor Society while at CSJ. However, the achievement that meant the most to me was maintaining a 4.0 GPA throughout my time at CSJ. It was a personal achievement that I worked extremely hard for. Q: If you had to do it all over, what would you do differently? A: I would have loved to participate in more events and programs around campus.
