Dear Friend of Delaware Tech, Forty-five years ago, Delaware Technical Community College was created to provide Delawareans with access, opportunity, excellence, and hope to achieve their dreams through education. Today, we continue to stand by this mission, which has earned the College recognition as a respected educational leader and valued partner in fields that support the State’s economic development initiatives and the educational needs of its residents. We connect Delawareans with jobs — in today’s economy there is nothing more important. We remain committed to our principles of being accountable, delivering responsive and relevant programs, advancing key initiatives, leveraging partnerships, and achieving excellence. We have much to be proud of thanks to the dedicated efforts of our Delaware Tech faculty, staff, administrators and board members, but we have not accomplished this milestone alone. As a valued partner, you have demonstrated your belief in our mission and in our students, and we are extremely grateful for your continued collaboration and support. I invite you to review this President’s Report to learn about the College’s recent achievements, future initiatives, and hallmarks of excellence. In all that we do, we are focused on helping our students succeed so they can complete their degrees and become productive members of Delaware’s workforce. Again, thank you for your partnership and generosity — you have made a significant difference in the lives of our students, in helping them accomplish their educational and career goals, and in supporting their dreams for a better life. Sincerely,

Orlando J. George, Jr., Ed.D. President

Graduate Employment Information Delaware Technical Community College offers over 120 programs leading to an associate degree, diploma, or certificate. We develop new programs and update existing ones in response to business and industry needs in Delaware. By aligning our programs with the knowledge, skills, and competencies our students need to be job ready when they graduate, Delaware Tech is accountable to our students, employers, and the state’s taxpayers. The ultimate measure of the College’s success is the hiring of our graduates. Graduate placement survey results indicate that 94% of recent graduates are either employed or continuing their education. In fact, in 2011 Delaware Tech graduates were hired by more than 450 different Delaware businesses and organizations around the state.

International Education Delaware Tech’s International Education Program promotes international members. The College offers study abroad programs, hosts student and faculty visits, and provides events promoting global engagement and understanding. To further integrate international education into our programs, we make significant efforts to promote cross cultural collaboration, as well as to internationalize the curriculum for all students. Recent study abroad programs have included culinary arts in Italy, art history in France, criminal justice in Scotland, and cultural immersion trips to Russia, China, and Spain. Nursing students travelled to Belize and provided screenings and help with physical therapy to over 200 villagers. Students also were able to watch their instructor, who is a nurse practitioner, work alongside a physician diagnosing and treating patients, which gave them a first-hand look at the versatility of the profession.

Study abroad and cross-cultural exchange are proven ways to enhance communication, critical thinking skills, adaptability to different environments, and foreign language proficiency — all skills that can make our students more competitive in the 21st century job market.

Since 2010, Delaware Tech students have visited the following countries through the College’s study-abroad program:

While economic forecasts and workforce trend analyses are routinely

Delaware Tech’s mission of workforce preparation has always made understanding labor market needs important. Now, when traditional industries are dramatically changing and economic uncertainties are greater, the ability to quickly and accurately identify new opportunities and educate the workforce for business creation, expansion, and attraction is critical. That is why Delaware Tech has established a new workforce and labor market information center modeled after the California “Centers of Excellence,” or COEs.

conducted by federal and state agencies and private entities, these reports have not proven to be integrated, comprehensive, or specific enough to guide educational program development. The COE model, on the other hand, produces industry-validated environmental scan and labor market reports on current and, most importantly, future labor market opportunities and needs.

These reports take into account emerging social, technological, political, and legal change. They “map the gap” between projected workforce demand and what colleges are supplying. They serve as roadmaps for colleges beginning or revising programs, winning grants, and leveraging resources with their industry, workforce and economic development partners to prepare students for high-growth, high-demand jobs with potential for upward career mobility. The new center at Delaware Tech, which is called the Center for Industry Research and Workforce Alignment (CIRWA), will play an important role

Veronica Buckwalter, director of the Center for Industry Research and Workforce Alignment (CIRWA), meets with Steve Borleske, project consultant, and Dr. Carolyn Snyder, director of the Division of Energy & Climate at the Delaware Department of Natural Resources & Environmental Control (DNREC), to discuss opportunities for collaboration on CIRWA’s first study, which will focus on Delaware’s energy sector.

In the spring of 2011, Delaware Tech committed to the community college to raise its graduation rates by 50% by 2020. The challenge, which was issued by the American Association of Community Colleges, involves incorporating a variety of strategies to support students in completing their degrees and certifications. The commitment has involved examining policies, practices, and the College’s institutional culture to identify areas that can have an impact on student success. Administrators, faculty, and staff have worked across campuses, divisions, and departments at an unprecedented level to align programs, operations, and services in order to progress toward this very important goal. The College’s initial efforts have focused on three major themes — Acceleration and Flexibility, Student Engagement, and Developmental Education.

Service Learning Service learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. Delaware Tech faculty and academic counselors engage students in service learning statewide to take what they’ve learned in the classroom and apply it to real-life situations. Through the practical application of their studies, they become actively contributing citizens and community members. Examples of service learning range from students volunteering at fairs and festivals to taking part in breast cancer awareness drives and volunteering

at breakfast missions. Dental hygiene students provide examinations for local children, while other students participate in recycling programs and beach and highway clean-up efforts. Culinary arts students solicit donations and stuff a DART bus with food for needy Delawareans in the Stuff the Bus effort. There are also programs that provide gently used formal wear for high school students going to proms, teddy bears for babies, blankets for children who are ill or traumatized, and shoes for members of the community who need them. In addition, nursing students provide health screenings at events statewide. The College’s Dental Health Center hosts its annual Give Kids a Smile day, a program that provides free dental care to children from low-income families.

To complement and increase service learning efforts, Delaware Tech now offers a student success course called Introduction to Service Learning, which provides students with community service ideas and opportunities while helping them learn the value of civic engagement.
