Strategic Plan, HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College
Goal One: Advance Academic Excellence
Goal Two: Foster Student Success
Goal Three: Strengthen Institutional Sustainability
Goal Four: Instill Inclusivity
New Funds Established 2015-16
Being at HACC for so many years, I wanted to be part of something that helped others with their education as I was helped. I was very fortunate and grateful to have gotten scholarships while I was in college that helped me or I know I would not have been able to do it. So being a member of the Board allows me to give back - to help others. - Missy Shupe, HACC Foundation Board Member
Starting in 2015 and continuing through 2019, our Journey to Excellence strategic plan will guide the College forward in an ongoing transformation to better serve our students and communities. Our students are our future, and they deserve nothing less than the highest quality of education. Therefore, HACC will focus on the following goals until 2019: 1. Advance Academic Excellence 2. Foster Student Success 3. Strengthen Institutional Sustainability 4. Instill Inclusivity In this annual report, you will find 2015-16 updates on each of the four goals and 15 subgoals. We invite you to bookmark and visit the HACC website Journey to Excellence strategic plan page regularly to see how we are progressing in achieving our goals, ask questions and provide feedback on how we are doing. In addition, please join in the conversation regarding the strategic plan on Facebook and Twitter using #HACCstrategy and #WhatsYOURgoal. This strategic plan is owned - in part - by all of us, and the work we do is very important. Therefore, we intend to infuse the 2015-19 strategic plan into our culture here at HACC. Why? Because we are here to change lives and make a difference in our communities!
Goal #1: Advance Academic Excellence
I love helping my students overcome obstacles to meet their fullest potential! I love seeing my students open their minds to new thoughts and ideas and viewpoints. I love working with a dedicated, talented and student-focused faculty, staff and administration! Teaching is not a job; it is my vocation. - Lori Hockley
Goal #1: Advance Academic Excellence
Sub-goal 1: Be recognized at the local, regional and national levels for academic excellence At HACC, academic excellence can be measured by many accomplishments, including faculty awards and student achievements. Each year, faculty members are recognized for their commitment to the College and their students. In 2016, four HACC faculty members received the Excellence in Teaching award from the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD). The recipients included: • Elizabeth Dunn, campus associate dean, Office of Academic Affairs, York Campus • David Liu, professor of sociology, Harrisburg Campus • Rebecca Shoener, professor of radiological technology, Lancaster Campus • Lisa Wolf, associate professor of paralegal studies, Lancaster Campus The College is working on ways to publicize the effectiveness of the Health Careers Programs and the success of HACC students in both exam pass rates and in job placement rates after graduation. HACC continues to maintain and foster relationships with various four-year colleges in Pennsylvania. One of the colleges HACC works closely with is Bucknell University. HACC and Bucknell University work together to create a great experience for students. HACC students are able to attend an all-expenses-paid summer orientation and return to HACC to complete an associate degree. After graduating from HACC, the students will have the opportunity to apply to Bucknell University to further their education. Those who are granted admission to the university will receive a full-tuition scholarship, along with individual plans tailored to meet their needs, assistance with transfer of credits and mentorship. Over the past 10 years, 69 HACC students have been selected for the program and 39 HACC students have continued their education at Bucknell University. HACC continues to provide new learning experiences for students and work toward the College’s first goal of the strategic plan: Advance Academic Excellence. HACC’s focus in the coming year is to document faculty excellence through publications and document those who hold offices in regional and national organizations. The College was also recognized for its success in increasing student pass rates in health careers: Certified Respiratory Therapist Diagnostic Medical Sonography Medical Assisting Paramedic Surgical Technology 100
Medical Laboratory Technician
Goal #1: Advance Academic Excellence
Sub-goal 2: Cultivate faculty innovation in curricular and co-curricular activities HACC has implemented a variety of workshops to help increase faculty innovation. In 2015-16, HACC offered four different workshops for faculty to increase their experience in a variety of areas. Some of the workshops offered were: • Teaching Using Google Drive • Getting Started with Zaption • Office Hours with Google Hangouts • ePortfolio usage in Classes as a Method of Assessment These workshops were offered at HACC’s five campuses and were meant to increase faculty’s knowledge of the different software systems they use in the classroom. As part of HACC’s strategic plan, faculty-focused workshops are meant to drive faculty innovation and increase co-curricular involvement. These workshops allowed HACC faculty to learn from each other and apply their new skill sets in their classrooms.
Sub-goal 3: Implement strategies that position online students for academic and career success In 2015-16, HACC created a new accelerated winter term for students to complete a variety of general education topics. Students can register online for the classes and can complete the classes in four weeks. HACC works to provide online students with the same experiences students have in the classroom. By offering online tutoring options, HACC positions online students for academic and career success. HACC has used new tools to help online students succeed. Starfish, an online early alert tool, was implemented to track students’ academic progress. Starfish is a way for faculty to track their students’ success, alert them of any obstacles to their learning and engage students in their academic progress. Starfish creates a way for faculty to become involved in a students’ education sooner if they realize they are struggling academically. As part HACC’s strategic plan, Starfish helps to increase student retention and completion rates. Another tool used at HACC is SmartThinking, an online tutoring program. Students receive the help they need without having to come to campus. Many online students work full time and get off work after most tutors have left for the day online tutoring gives students a way to receive help from a tutor 24/7. 8
Goal #1: Advance Academic Excellence
Sub-goal 4: Review and align all academic and workforce development programs In 2015-16, HACC initiated a new academic program review process. This pilot process reviewed 20 academic programs. Faculty also voted to change the degree requirements to better align the programs with students’ career and transfer goals. As part of HACC’s expansion of the Workforce Development Programs, HACC has created new learning opportunities for students by offering Workforce Development classes online for employees to receive training in a variety of areas. HACC’s Workforce Development and Continuing Education Division works with employees and their employers to offer job training classes to improve their skills. Employees can obtain a certificate of completion at the end of the course to add to their résumé. Another achievement was the articulation of four apprenticeship programs into the Technology Studies Program. The apprenticeship programs, which provide students with hands-on experience, will provide more than 30 credits upon completion when students enroll in the Technology Studies Program.
I was impressed by the professors and instructors. They were outstanding. I knew that I was getting an education at a first class institution. - Brigadier General Uzal W. Ent, Pennsylvania National Guard (Retired)
Goal #2: Foster Student Success
What I like most about HACC is that everyone is very empathetic and kind. No matter where you come from or who you are, HACC gives people another chance at life. - Stephanie Enid Otero Negron
Goal #2 Foster Student Success
Sub-goal 1: Adopt best practices for developmental education HACC is working to revise the sequence of courses to decrease time in developmental education and increase options for students placed into developmental education to accelerate their transition to college-level courses. Geri Gutwein and Julie Keenan came to the English Department with the idea to bring integrated reading and writing (IRW) courses to HACC. They have since implemented the first IRW course, compressing two courses into one developmental English course. The English faculty are now developing the second-level course to further decrease time in developmental English. The department is looking at placement scores to align with this new accelerated curriculum for integrated reading and writing. Success rates for students enrolling in English 101 are promising from the first cohort. The provost has given the chair of the English Department a charge to reduce the credits in the English as a Second Language (ESL) Program. The goal is to have the final ESL class lead to a placement in English 101 - English Composition I. The faculty are still in the information-gathering phase for this project. To decrease the percentage of students placed into developmental education courses, the Math Department has revised the curriculum, taking three terms of classes and dividing them into smaller, two-credit chunks to help students with pace of material. While the initial roll-out of the new placement process was problematic, we are using Accuplacer and reassessing placement process. The Math Department has also agreed to explore using SAT scores and/or high school GPA as alternative placement tools. Data on the new curriculum will be collected to determine if this new sequence decreases time spent in developmental math.
Sub-goal 2: Ensure College services are appropriately aligned to allow students to achieve their academic goals HACC has implemented a communications and processing center to increase outbound communications to students. HACC takes incoming calls through the College Operator System in addition to staff making outbound calls to future students, new admissions and returning and current students for various reasons. In summer 2016, HACC focused its efforts on currently enrolled students who had not yet registered for fall courses. The call list transitioned from paper to electronic. Staff use scripts when making calls and keep track of all students contacted during outbound call projects. HACC uses a master call calendar that is updated and followed to ensure students are receiving an effective number of outbound call communications. HACC also documents all calls regardless of the outcome and submits weekly statistics so all campuses are aware of the outbound call projects and text alerts. In our objective to increase student engagement with orientation, all campuses have redesigned their New Student Orientation (NSO) Program. Students now interact with other new students, upperâ€?class students and College staff. Students also create a time management plan necessary to balance family, work and life with being a successful college student. Through this program, students begin to develop a healthy level of confidence in their ability to navigate college and feel positive about their decision to come to HACC. Virtual Learning has developed an online NSO to be used by students taking all classes virtually. The online NSO is also available to all students. 11
Goal #2 Foster Student Success
Sub-goal 3: Implement innovative strategies to positively impact enrollment, retention, graduation, transfer and placement rates Over the course of the 2015-16 academic year, a committee made up of students and employees created a comprehensive strategic enrollment management (SEM) and student success plan. The five areas of focus identified in the plan are: 1. Completion 2. Data Collection and Analysis 3. Enrollment Services 4. Marketing and Recruitment 5. Student Success One area from the plan already implemented is the increase of targeted recruitment events on HACC’s campuses. For example, HACC held “high school experience days” at three campuses. This allowed HACC to bring hundreds of students from specific high schools to campuses where employees could provide them with interactive experiences to encourage enrollment at HACC. Another example is the implementation of program-based visit days at the College. With these events, the College invites future students interested in a specific program area (allied health, criminal justice, business, etc.) and offers presentations and other programming that specifically discuss the academic programs and offerings. As part of our SEM and academic affairs plans, the Office of Academic Affairs is also completing a review of all academic programs. This review will evaluate curriculum, enrollment and cost trends, and alignment with student, business, community and transfer needs. In 2015-16, 20 programs were evaluated and 50 programs will be evaluated in the 2016-17 academic year. As part of HACC’s plan to increase enrollment, retention, graduation, transfer and placement rates, HACC’s Office of College Advancement (OCA) team works to develop marketing materials to reach future students, including local high school students, and current HACC students. HACC also offers different ways for current HACC students to win money to apply toward their tuition. Tuition giveaway contests, funded by the HACC Foundation, are popular at HACC and give students a way to win money they need for their tuition. The tuition giveaways are a way to help increase student retention by decreasing a student’s out-of-pocket expenses. The contests also encourage students to get involved with the College.
Goal #3: Strengthen Institutional Sustainability
I could advance my education while seeing if the architectural profession was something I wanted to pursue as a career. I could live at home, have a parttime job and advance my education at a reasonable cost. HACC was a great place to start!! - Michael Bass
Goal #3 Strengthen Institutional Sustainability
Sub-goal 1: Establish a comprehensive long-term plan to improve the College’s impact on its environment HACC is committed to reducing its impact on the environment. In 2015-16, we reduced our impact in the following ways: • The Harrisburg Campus deployed 34 Bigbelly Systems trash and recycling centers. These solar-powered, Wi-Fi connected units streamlined our trash collection and improved participation in recycling. • Through a partnership with Tesla Energy Advisors, the College successfully procured electricity for its campuses, which will yield more than $400,000 in savings and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 3,372 metric tons per year. • Whitaker Hall on the Harrisburg Campus had its roof replaced and masonry repairs completed, resulting in elimination of air leaks, improved energy efficiency and reduced energy costs.
• Light fixtures at the Lancaster and Lebanon campuses were replaced with LED lighting, which will reduce the energy required.
Sub-goal 2: Establish a comprehensive plan to ensure HACC remains affordable, accessible and fiscally sustainable Significant progress was made toward achieving this goal as shown in the following accomplishments: • The College successfully completed the sale of revenue bonds for renovation projects at the College and the refinancing of outstanding capital improvement bonds issued in 2008, saving the College approximately $1.6 million. As part of the issuance of the new bonds, the College received a strong A- credit rating from Standard and Poor' s Rating Services. This rating is a measure of the College's financial strength. • Training sessions were held to communicate and ensure fiscally responsible purchasing practices collegewide. • The Office of Finance developed its first in a series of informational and training videos. Additional videos are scheduled to be completed in the 2016-17 school year. • The Maurice C. Overholt Bookstore renovations on HACC’s Harrisburg Campus improved layout and accessibility and allowed for the future location of an Apple-authorized service reseller and provider. Projected revenue over the next few years is $1.5 million. • A Blue Ribbon Committee was convened to identify and develop future priorities and opportunities for the College’s long-term health and prosperity.
Goal #3 Strengthen Institutional Sustainability
Invest. Impact. Inspire. Campaign for HACC
The Invest. Impact. Inspire. Campaign for HACC was launched by the HACC Foundation to raise $14 million to support HACC. Goals for the campaign are $10 million to complete the renovation of the Bruce E. Cooper Student Center on the Harrisburg Campus, $500,000 for emergency assistance funds, $1.5 million for the President’s Fund for Excellence and $2 million for scholarships.
History Made with HACC’s First-Ever Day of Giving Our goal for the Day of Giving was $51,000 – $1,000 for each year of the College’s existence. We EXCEEDED our fundraising goal and raised $145,682!
Donors and Scholarship Recipients Recognized at Events on HACC Campuses In March and April 2016, all five HACC campuses hosted a donor and scholar recognition event. These special events highlighted the HACC Foundation’s successes over the last year, while celebrating our generous donors and our hard-working scholarship recipients. Moving speeches by students and donors occurred at each event and reminded everyone about the importance of giving to HACC. Lysa Wright, one of the student speakers, aptly said, “Receiving a scholarship communicated to me that someone out there cared about what I am trying to accomplish and was willing to put their money down and say I am going to help you. That touched more than just my pocket book; that really touched my heart. I want to thank you for how you helped me and also for how you helped other students because it really means a lot.”
HACC and the HACC Foundation Receive More Than $1.3 Million From July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016, HACC and the HACC Foundation received $1,313,828 in new grant funds. Funds were granted by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, National Science Foundation, Partnership for Better Health, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Pennsylvania Department of Education and The Foundation for Enhancing Communities. 15
Goal #3 Strengthen Institutional Sustainability Student Scholarships Awarded by HACC Foundation The HACC Foundation awarded $745,475 in scholarships to 621 students for the fall 2015 and spring 2016 terms. Students received scholarships or awards from contributions to the HACC Foundation by private and corporate donors throughout HACC’s 10-county service area and beyond. The scholarships and awards were established to provide educational opportunities for students who are in need, who are studying a particular program, who excel academically and/or who meet other criteria specified by the donor.

Funds Raised for Student Scholarships Thanks to our generous sponsors, the HACC Foundation was able to raise approximately $100,000 for student scholarships at the 19th annual Frank J. Dixon Tournament for Scholarships at HACC. The event was held Sept. 28, 2015, at the Hershey Country Club’s East Course. A total of 82 sponsors and 25 golf teams participated in the event. Not only did the teams get to enjoy a great day of golf, but they were also encouraged to bid on items at our annual silent auction and participate in the post-tournament reception and program.
Goal #3 Strengthen Institutional Sustainability
Sub-goal 3: Institute best practices in communications to effectively share College-related information A new College workgroup was established to focus on communications – the Effective Communication Training Workgroup. As part of an employee engagement team recommendation and as part of the HACC Journey to Excellence Strategic Plan, this special workgroup will: • Lead the development, implementation and communication of collegewide effective communication training. • Develop, implement and communicate collegewide best practices to improve internal communications by 2 percent over the established baseline. This special workgroup includes employee engagement team members and communications faculty – a wealth of talent, expertise and experience.
Sub-goal 4: Meet the growing technological needs of the College community The Office for Information Services and Technology (OIST) is actively replacing end-of-life physical servers, leveraging virtualization technologies and adoption of high-density modern server architectures. Intercampus connectivity via wide area network (WAN) is expanding to meet the College’s growing demand. Both Harrisburg Campus and Midtown are connected via a fiber optic connection currently sized at one gigabit.
Sub-goal 5: Recruit high-performing employees and provide them with knowledge and skills to maximize their effectiveness The Office of Human Resources published a collegewide training needs assessment. Recommendations from the assessment included an advisory board to facilitate the College’s professional development strategy, competency-based leadership development, technical training and improved marketing of professional development opportunities. Approximately, 107 participants attended the inaugural President’s Leadership Symposium, titled “Civility in Higher Education: New Approaches to Foster a Culture of Trust.” As a result, 96 percent of the survey respondents agreed with the statement, “The overall program and information provided was useful to me.” Updates to the shared governance policy (SGP) on recruitment were completed. Outcomes include improvement to business processes; clarification on roles and responsibilities of hiring managers, search committees and human resources; and tools to aid hiring managers in the recruitment process. A total rewards statement to highlight the cash and noncash benefits of working at HACC was developed and made available to all full-time employees.
Goal #4: Instill Inclusivity
I love the diversity of people - the majority of students at HACC are accepting. There are different races, cultures and ages. I love that HACC has a variety of programs to accommodate each individual’s needs and wants. - Amina Brodie
Goal #4 Instill Inclusivity
Sub-goal 1: Champion diversity and inclusivity In a world that struggles with intolerance, HACC is becoming a beacon of diversity and inclusivity where all students and employees can feel accepted and at home. The College is focused on equipping employees with the skills to handle differences and engage in open discussions that will lead to understanding and acceptance. In 2015-2016, efforts to meet this sub-goal were focused on professional development for HACC employees. A presentation on “Islamophobia” was offered to all employees to address the biases that have arisen around Islamic culture.
Sub-goal 2: Create and maintain a collaborative culture across the College HACC is dedicated to nurturing awareness and cultural sensitivity to create a climate of trust within the College to keep the lines of communication open and honest on all levels, whether that be teacher to teacher, teacher to student or administrator to teacher. Great strides were made toward achieving this goal through the first-ever President’s Leadership Symposium held in April 2016. Focused on civility, the symposium boasted speakers and discussions on bullying and bullying prevention, as well as conversations about ways to engage and interact to treat all with dignity and respect. Panel discussions were held to examine the principles of civility and set forth distinct perspectives to reach a proper balance in institutions of higher learning. After the symposium, participants felt as though a real dialogue was opened and they were excited to put what they learned into practice. Opportunities continue to be developed further as the newly created Employee Engagement Team (EET) has met four times to devise recommendations to improve the culture of the College. EET gave 32 recommendations to be addressed by administrators. One direct result of these recommendations was “The Hawk Eye,” an online platform for employee recognition, which helps draw the community together. Individuals can applaud one another for a job well done and congratulate them on their achievements. Employees have also been given the tools to better interact with their co-workers through the DiSC assessment program, which helps colleagues connect and communicate better with one another through an analysis of work style and priorities.
Sub-goal 3: Enhance recruitment and retention of employees and students to create a more diverse and qualified workforce The Office of Human Resources facilitated “Recruitment, Cultural Biases and Self-Awareness” training in February 2016, with 20 participants. Additional tools and forms to help hiring managers, search committees and campus guides with the expectations associated with the new recruitment shared governance policy and handbook were added to the internal employee website. 19
