courses in CNC starting in Fall 2014. The courses were consistently filled all year. The Fab Lab also visited Boyne City, East Jordan and Central Lake high schools, offering courses in CNC to high school students. Pellston High School will be added in Fall 2015. Manufacturers also made use of the Fab Lab’s training facilities. During the past year, the Fab Lab trained 26 workers at five manufacturing companies within Emmet and Charlevoix counties. The Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians received a $1.5 million, 60-month ANA SEEDS (Sustainable Employment and Economic Development Strategies) grant in September 2014. As a result of the SEEDS grant and the partnership with LTBB, the College offered a Completion Camp to nine individuals to complete the entire training program within one year, added more light manufacturing equipment to a ground-based lab to be installed on the Petoskey campus, and hired a CNC Instructor, CNC Driver/ Instructor Aid, and a Career Support Specialist.

Lee Marshall took CNC courses in the FAB LAB and immediately found employment at Central Industrial Manufacturing in Harbor Springs.

Recognition from Lansing The Fab Lab was invited to visit Lansing on June 10 to provide an opportunity for legislators to visit the mobile lab and see demonstrations. During the visit, student Elena Musser created a Michigan-themed, CNC-machined paperweight for the governor.

CAMPUS MASTER PLAN

In September 2014, the Board of Trustees approved the updated campus master plan. The primary goal of the master plan is to provide and maintain a foundation for improving the entire College environment, both physical and academic, in a flexible, coordinated manner. The plan will serve as a blueprint to help guide College officials as they plan for the future. Key factors: 1.

2.

3.

4.

Use of resources: Determine the possibility of revitalizing existing resources, and determine when it is prudent to develop new facilities. Connections: Create an environment with improved connections between the College and its stakeholders, neighbors and the environment. Community: The College is a place where its constituents— students, employees and visitors— feel welcome. Image and aesthetics: The campus master plan helps the College refine and communicate its image.


HIGHER LEARNING COMMISSION ACCREDITATION

March 2015 In March 2015, the College had its accreditation visit from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The final report was extremely positive.

HLC’s Comprehensive Evaluation Report

In their report, the visiting team highlighted several of North Central’s strengths, including:

• Highly qualified, dedicated faculty and staff; • A collaborative spirit among all elements of the College; • Attractive campus facilities, including the newly constructed Jack and Dorothy Harris Health Education and Science Center; • An experienced and committed Board of Trustees; • Designation as a Leader College in the Achieving the Dream network; and • A strong and active Foundation.

It was rewarding that the HLC team commented on the strong, enthusiastic community support North Central enjoys, and for which we are so grateful.

North Central Michigan College’s students, employees, partners and community members agree that the College is offering quality higher education opportunities, along with cultural enrichment activities, to its service area in fulfillment of its mission, vision, philosophy and core values.

CCE 2014-2015 highlights

2015 was a year for transformative partnerships and educational growth in manufacturing, health care, safety and personal development for adult learners.

HIGH INTEREST TRAINING TOPICS & ATTENDANCE


Health care safety

CCE again brought a series of ergonomic safety training sessions to long-term health care facilities in Northern Michigan, from Grayling to St. Ignace, teaching 600-plus employees how to lift and transport patients safely, avoid injury and illness, and remain safe on the job. These programs help keep health care workers and their facilities safe and productive.

Manufacturing training

CCE partnered with eight area manufacturing companies, Networks Northwest and the Northeast Michigan Consortium to bring more than $300,000 in grant funds to Northern Michigan to train 543 skilled workers and create 40 new positions.

Above: Around the Table Farming Expo attracted 80 farmers, purchasers, chefs and local food lovers. Below: CCE offered classroom training ranging from health care to manufacturing to area business and industry.

Employees of Moeller Aerospace, Link Industries, Wojan Windows & Doors, JB Webb, Central Industrial, Petoskey Plastics, Tube Fab and Honeywell all received hands-on instruction on advanced manufacturing equipment, software, Lean operations and more. The customized instruction took place at company sites in Emmet, Charlevoix and Cheboygan counties, helping those areas preserve high-skill manufacturing positions.

Youth employment success

CCE’s Youth 4 Success programs served 124 youth in Gaylord, Cheboygan and Johannesburg during the past year, helping them graduate from high school or pass their GED, find work, apply to college and achieve their goals. Many of these students continued their education at North Central.

Agricultural business education

CCE’s farming programs have continued to grow over the last three years. This year, CCE scheduled 45 workshops and events. Topics included fungi, beekeeping, vineyard management and farm-related businesses. In addition to the workshops attended by nearly 600 people, CCE hosted a number of agriculturally-focused events: • Around the Table: Roundtable Discussion on Local Food & Farming attracted 80 farmers, purchasers, chefs and local food lovers to create ways to support local agriculture. • Local Food Alliance monthly potlucks brought together advocates from farming, retail, health care, arts, foundations and education to develop programs to increase the availability of local food and support area farmer businesses. • 4th Annual Wine Competition and Tasting allowed student vintners and professional wine-makers to compete. Sommeliers and wine professionals judged nearly 80 entries and awarded prizes to the winning wine-makers at the wine tasting on May 13.


Cari Griffin Cari Griffin, of Boyne City, started her family early and never had time to consider college, but when daughter Sydney enrolled at North Central, she decided the time was right. Cari not only proved a mother of six can juggle the demands of school and family life, she proved North Central can truly help you realize your dreams. She’s been accepted to the University of Michigan, where she’ll further her focus in history and literature and obtain her doctoral degree.

“If I can find the time to go to college with six kids, anyone can. Don’t let life get in the way.”

For communities like ours...the

Lecture Series

For more than 20 years, North Central has offered the community the opportunity to hear celebrities, authors and experts in a wide variety of fields through its free Lecture Series programs. In 2014-15, Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise and Marvel Comics Creative Director Bill Rosemann spoke to a packed house at the College.

Luncheon Lectures

The Luncheon Lectures provide outstanding local and regional speakers for the community every semester. More than 1,300 individuals attend this lecture series yearly.

Life-long learning

In partnership with the Petoskey District Library, North Central began a series of intellectual adventures and great conversations led by North Central professors. Learners of all ages enjoyed programs on classical art, Jerusalem, yoga and more.

International programs

CCE, with many faculty and community partners, hosted eight presentations on global issues ranging from Iceland to Ebola, Little Traverse Bay Band history to business in China. More than 500 people of all ages attended these free events.

“

One of our main criteria for selecting a location for a new business is that it has a college in the town. Colleges add vitality, stability and positively affect not only the students, but raise the quality of life for the community. Doug Caldwell Editor-in-Chief, Petoskey News-Review


College serves as a cultural center The community on-campus •

Each November, veterans and their families are invited to a free breakfast at North Central. More than 200 people attend this celebration of Veterans Day each year.
