FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear Friends: Minnesota State Community and Technical College is completing its first decade as a combined college. Although each of our campuses in Detroit Lakes, Fergus Falls, Moorhead and Wadena has a rich history spanning close to 50 years, coming together as one College has proven to be a strategy for success. The College remains poised to respond to an everchanging world in uncertain economic times and maintains its commitment to student success, workforce development and strengthening the communities in our service areas. We have much to celebrate as a college, thanks to our dedicated faculty and staff and our innovative programs and services. M State has received accolades for many of these, including our innovative Shared Services Cooperative, which provides business and student services efficiencies to partner colleges and the MnSCU System Office; our Center for College Readiness, which provides local and state-wide assistance to high school students to better prepare them for college success; and our nationally recognized faculty who have been honored for excellence in teaching and learning. We are most proud of the accomplishments of our students — they represent our most valuable success stories. One cannot help but be inspired by the ways they have transformed their lives, their workplaces and our communities. M State graduated 1,650 students in 2011-12, and more than 80 percent went on to complete their education through transfer to other higher education institutions or directly into jobs within our communities. There are many success stories on all of our campuses and in all of our communities, and this annual report is a testament to our work. Please take some time to read about the amazing things that happen when we all work together toward common purposes. The economic impact of M State on our communities is worth millions of dollars, and our goal is to expand that trend to enhance the region’s economic vitality by preparing our graduates for dynamic learning, living, working and serving. M State’s strategic plan is leading the College well into the future by ensuring access to an extraordinary education, by being the partner of choice to meet Minnesota’s workforce and community needs, and by delivering the highest value and the most affordable education option. Thank you for your continued support in assisting us to accomplish our mission.

Dr. Peggy D. Kennedy President

We are most proud of the accomplishments of our students — they represent our most valuable success stories.

STUDENT SUCCESS College becomes possible with child care available The on-campus child care facility made all the difference in the world for

Catherine

McDougall as she worked toward completion of two degrees at M State in Detroit Lakes. Daughters Cadence, 5, and Olivia, 3, attended the child care and Head Start facility located on the campus while Catherine initially completed her two-year Accounting degree and then chose to return to school. She continued on to earn a degree in Administrative Management Technology, graduating in December 2012.

completely” and opted to prepare for a business career. Once she finished her Accounting program, Catherine made the decision to pursue the Administrative Management Technology degree – which focuses on office administrative and computer skills, including project and office management – to expand her opportunities for employment. “With two degrees, I’m qualified for more jobs,” she said. “I want to do not only the accounting, but possibly office management.” Her goal is a job in a small business where she can use the skills she learned in her dual programs, preferably while remaining in the Detroit Lakes area. Catherine said she’d considered colleges other than M State when she graduated from high school, but she’s happy with her decision to stay close to home and attend the Detroit Lakes campus.

Wanting to stay in her home town, Catherine started at M State after graduating from the Area Learning Center in Detroit Lakes. Child care became an issue after Olivia was born, and Catherine took a break from school for a semester until she enrolled both girls in the oncampus center operated by the Mahube Community Action Partnership.

“It’s a great college,” she said, adding that she appreciated the personal attention and small class sizes that are found at M State.

“It wouldn’t have been possible without child care,” Catherine said. “The day care is awesome, and there are a lot of other services, too, for lower-income families.”

“It is challenging,” she said, “but we’ve gotten through it. It’s been a long road, but it was a good road.”

And Catherine has a message for others who are considering whether they can manage college while they work and care for their children.

STUDENT SUCCESS Looking for opportunities, Krueger opts for nursing Beau Krueger says he took a “leap of faith” when he moved back to Fergus Falls – and he landed seven years later in the Associate Degree Nursing program at M State. Beau started his professional life as an elementary teacher at a Catholic school in the Twin Cities and, while he was there, completed a master’s degree in education at St. Mary’s University in Minneapolis. But when the oldest of his three children was born, he and wife Jenny – both Fergus Falls natives – opted to move back to their hometown to be nearer their families. “I took a leap of faith that work would work out,” said Beau, who learned first-hand that education jobs are scarce in rural Minnesota. He worked three years with a grant-funded youth program, then with adults with developmental disabilities. When downsizing eliminated that position, he had a series of 11 job interviews over nine months … and felt like he wasn’t a perfect match for any of the jobs.

to go back to school, I wanted it to be something where I was in demand.” After researching his options on the Fergus Falls campus, he decided “all the pieces fit” for the nursing program. Beau made his decision in October 2011, enrolled in prerequisite classes in January and began in the program in August 2012. He opted for nursing in part because of the job prospects but also because he enjoys working with people and “that feeling that I made a difference” in someone’s life. He also has a message for other non-traditional students who are hesitant about returning to college: “It’s not as impossible as you would think.” “I’m actually thankful that I was pushed into this,” he said. “If I would have stayed with my previous job in Fergus Falls, I would never have quit and gone back to school. After being pushed in this direction, a wide variety of opportunities will be available to me, instead of feeling stuck in a position.” His education background could be valuable, as well. After he gains nursing experience, he envisions working as a diabetes educator or a nursing instructor – perhaps at M State.

“I told my wife that, ‘The next interview I go to, I want my resume to fill exactly what they’re looking for. I need to go back to school,’ ” Beau said. “And if I was Minnesota State Community and Technical College Annual Report 2011-2012

PARTNERSHIPS West Central Initiative awarded a $10,000 grant to Business & Entrepreneurial Services, located on the Detroit Lakes campus, for operational expenses in the five BES business incubators in Detroit Lakes, Frazee, Hawley, Perham and New York Mills. The incubators, designed to provide support for new businesses, include 53 office spaces and the services of an incubator manager. Through the incubators, BES serves fledgling businesses with low-cost professional office and meeting space, office equipment and computers, conference technology, shared administrative services and mentoring programs. Representatives of M State, Lake of the Woods County Economic Development, North Star Electric Cooperative and the Baudette community joined to break ground for an Electrical Line Worker training facility in Baudette. With completion of the facility, M State will offer its

8

nine-month Electrical Line Worker diploma program in a new building adjacent to the college’s industry partner, North Star Electric. When officials in the northern Minnesota community contacted M State, college officials saw the Baudette partnership as an opportunity to meet an industry need and expand the college’s Line Worker program. Business & Entrepreneurial Services expanded its opportunities for entrepreneurs with the opening of The HIVE, a cooperative incubator marketing agency in Detroit Lakes. The HIVE provides up to five new offices for creative professionals, including individuals working in marketing, advertising, public relations, photography, Web design, graphic design and writing. The new cooperative encourages creative and

marketing professionals to collaborate with other creative, like-minded individuals in an agency setting. West Central Initiative awarded M State $65,000 in grants for projects designed to boost employment skills for workers in health care and manufacturing in west central Minnesota. The awards were part of WCI’s first-ever Competitive Workforce Grants. A $40,000 grant supports Machining for Manufacturing, a joint project between six manufacturers and two school districts. A second grant awards the college $25,000 for a joint project between M State and four long-term care facilities in Alexandria, Fergus Falls, Glenwood and Wheaton. Dakota Foundation also is contributing a $3,500 grant to supplement the health care grant awarded by WCI. Both projects will be directed by M State’s Custom Training Services, which applied for the grants.

STUDENT SUCCESS Brothers, both veterans, find niche at M State A layoff turned out to be an excellent career move for

Preston Nygaard.

About a year after completing four years of active duty in the military, the West Fargo native was laid off from his job at a Fargo heavy equipment dealership. “I figured it was a good time to go back to school,” he said. Preston enrolled in the two-year Diesel Equipment Technology program on M State’s Moorhead campus. Midway through the program an instructor recommended him for a job at Nelson International in Fargo, where he has continued to work since his graduation in May 2011. “I’ve always been good with my hands,” Preston said, “and diesel is the way of the future for trucks.” He was so enthused about the program that he encouraged his younger brother, Mac, also to enroll. Mac Nygaard graduated in May 2012 and now works for Butler Machinery in Fargo. “I helped persuade him a little bit,” Preston said, laughing. The two brothers are both Marine veterans. Preston was a scout sniper and completed three tours in Iraq, including time stationed in Fallujah during the heaviest assaults there. Mac, also a scout sniper,

was stationed for three of his five years in presidential security at Camp David. With a combat-related disability, Preston qualified for vocational rehabilitation and also was able to draw on support from the campus veteran service representative. One is available on each campus to assist veterans and their family members with questions about military and veterans educational benefits. Preston had actually enrolled in college shortly after his discharge from the service, then realized he wasn’t yet ready. When he returned after his year in the workforce and subsequent layoff, though, he knew he’d found his niche. He was a year into his program when the Nelson International truck dealership contacted the Diesel Equipment Technology instructors to see whether they could suggest a student for an open position there. “I was at the top of my class, so I think that played a role in it,” Preston said. “Being able to work with your hands is one thing, but being able to use and retain the knowledge is another.” The Diesel Technology program is “great,” he added. “The classes are not huge so you can get one-on-one time with the instructors. You can tell the instructors have years of experience behind what they preach. They are top-notch … they don’t get any better.”

TEACHING AND LEARNING Paul Drange and Paul Carney were selected as presenters at the Student Success conference sponsored by the Association of American Colleges and Universities. Drange and Carney led the session entitled “Ready or Not Writing: What Does College-Ready Writing Look Like?” and addressed the misalignment of writing standards between high schools and colleges. Drange is director of M State’s Center for College Readiness, and Carney is an English instructor on the Fergus Falls campus. The Moorhead campus officially opened a new chapter with a ribbon cutting and dedication of its recently completed library and classroom addition. The 24,000-squarefoot addition houses nine new classrooms and several faculty offices. The new library has nearly double the amount of space in the previous library and includes quiet areas for studying, computer resource spaces, areas for informal seating and additional shelf space. The $5.4 million project was funded by the Minnesota Legislature. 10

Fergus Falls English instructor Paul Carney was invited to serve on a national panel that is part of an effort to increase the number of high school graduates who are prepared for college-level courses. The panel was convened by the National Center on Education and the Economy to analyze the literacy requirements in introductory courses at selected open enrollment colleges and universities in the United States. The Center is working with states and schools to improve instruction so that fewer high school graduates who enroll in college will need to take remedial courses.

STUDENT SUCCESS M State brings Hinojos full circle in his career Three years into an education degree,

Vince Hinojos put his college plans on hold when he and his wife, Michelle, married and started a family. Vince was enrolled at North Dakota State University in a secondary education program for Native Americans with the goal of becoming a high school science teacher. After their marriage, though, Vince left school to work so Michelle Hinojos could complete her doctor of pharmacy degree. His work on an assembly line at a window plant “pushed me to go back to school,” he said, and he enrolled at M State in Wadena after his wife was hired as a pharmacist at Tri-County Hospital in Wadena in 2002. Vince, who grew up in the Carslbad Caverns area of New Mexico but is a member of the Spirit Lake Tribe of Devils Lake, N.D., opted for the Computer Networking program, although he didn’t have a great deal of experience with computers at the time. “I kind of liked tinkering, but I really didn’t know all that much about computers,” he said. “I was pretty much coming in cold, but it was a good fit.”

Vince finished his degree in Computer Networking and expanded his employment options with courses in computer system electronics and the Cisco networking certificate. He arranged an internship at Tri-County Hospital and eventually joined the hospital system as a network engineer. Two years ago Vince mentored high school students for Wadena’s first robotics program and now leads the Community Education Lego Robotics program, where he works with students in grades 4-6, including his own two sons. “Working with the kids has really brought me full circle,” Vince said. “I get a taste of the teaching world … and I also have our oldest daughter help with the programming of the Lego robots, which gives her a chance to see how rewarding it can be helping others.” He stays connected to the college by serving on the industry advisory committee that works with Wadena’s technology programs. “We’re there to talk about what the industry is looking for in graduates and what needs should be addressed,” Vince said. “I’m really thankful for being able to have a program like that, so that students can pursue a career if they have an interest in computers. The opportunity is there; it’s a great bonus for the community to have that available.”

STUDENT SUCCESS A disability can’t keep Onsum from her goals With two jobs and the challenges of living with a disability, it wasn’t feasible for

Jennifer Onsum to travel back and forth from her Minneapolis home to a college campus for classes. Through M State’s eCampus, though, she’s realizing her dream of a career in a medical profession. “I’ve always been fascinated by the medical world and decided I wanted to go back to school for something in the medical field,” said Jennifer, who earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of St. Thomas and has worked in public relations since graduating seven years ago. “Direct patient care isn’t for me, so I learned about the area of health information management and decided it was for me.”

“Also, my physical disability can make me fatigue easier and be more susceptible to illnesses, so I really needed to be able to do things on my time and schedule.” Jennifer was featured in a student profile in the professional magazine of the American Health Information Management Association, where she related that her many hospitalizations since she was a baby will give her a “unique edge” in the field and an opportunity to contribute to better patient care. Health information technologists are crucial players in the medical industry’s conversion to electronic health care records, coding and categorizing patient information. “HIM might not have a direct impact on an individual patient, but the information gathered can be analyzed and used to improve the quality of care being delivered to all patients,” Jennifer said, explaining her motivation in the AHIMA magazine.

Jennifer enrolled at M State after finding eCampus offered one of the few Health Information Technology degrees in the state that could be completed totally online. That was essential for Jennifer since, in addition to her jobs, she has muscular dystrophy and uses a wheelchair.

During the course of her program, Jennifer gained “excellent” practical experience during an internship at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. Her ultimate career goal is a job as an inpatient coder, who monitors a patient’s chart during admission, or a trauma registrar, who reviews all trauma cases that come into a hospital’s emergency department with the goal of improving treatment for all trauma patients.

“I was working two jobs and just didn’t have the time to go in for classes,” she said.

“It will be a big career change for me, and hopefully a really good one,” Jennifer said.

FOUNDATIONS Minnesota State Community and Technical College is proud to serve each of its communities and is committed to providing affordable, accessible education. We could not succeed without the support of our Foundations and the work of their dedicated boards of directors and donors. Thanks to their efforts, the four Foundations are able to award more than $200,000 in scholarships annually. It is a privilege to impact the lives and futures of so many of our students. To honor her husband’s memory, Dorothy Malm (pictured with Fergus Area College Foundation Board President Rob Bigwood and Vice President Gail Childs) established the Donald and Dorothy Malm Scholarship through a gift of $20,500 to the Foundation in September 2011. This gift will fund an annual scholarship for an M State business student on the Fergus Falls campus.


Detroit Lakes Area College Foundation The Detroit Lakes Area College Foundation is pleased with its selection by the Bremer Foundation for funding to implement new alumni software, which will be shared with M State’s Wadena and Moorhead foundations and make it easier for the campuses to connect with alumni. Another successful Night in New York fundraiser helped make it possible for DLACF to award more than $12,000 in scholarships, plus the Foundation funded $5,000 in grants requested by faculty members. The Foundation welcomed ongoing support from the 412 Lakes Antique Car Club for continued funding of an Auto Body Collision Technology program scholarship and the establishment of a scholarship by Arlene Olson in memory of her late husband, Lloyd, a long-time instructor in the Automotive Service Technology program.

Fergus Area College Foundation Whether awarding a scholarship, funding a student life activity or providing a faculty grant to enhance teaching and learning, Fergus Area College Foundation impacts students each and every day. In 2011-12, contributions to the Foundation totaled $180,517, including a $29,400

gift from the estate of C. Jon Rosengren and a $20,500 endowment from the Donald and Dorothy Malm family. More than $125,000 in scholarships were awarded to more than 100 students, and faculty and staff received $12,000 in grants to fund creative and innovative programming. In addition, the Foundation hosted its first “Our Community. Our College” luncheon, where more than 100 members of the local business and professional community were updated on the economic impact of the campus. The 20th annual Bigwood Lecture featured nationally acclaimed attorney Richard L. Pemberton, and the Foundation reinstated the publication of “Pillar Pride,” which highlights the events and people of the Fergus Falls campus.

scholarship endowment of nearly $42,000 for the “Dare to Dream” Dan Sperling Memorial Scholarship fund, which honors the former staff member on the Moorhead campus. The annual April scholarship awards ceremony continues to be a highlight in the Foundation’s year for both students and donors. The Foundation has reorganized under the direction of a new president, Tom Julsrud, a recent M State graduate who understands the importance of the opportunities provided by M State. Also recognizing the financial challenges facing many of our students, his family supports the annual Julsrud Family Scholarship.

Moorhead Community and Technical College Foundation

The Wadena Area College Foundation continued to strengthen its fund development and community awareness through the first annual WACF Golf Scramble and the Holes for Poles ice fishing derby.
