From the President “Support for job seekers as well as employers is more effective now since PCC has become the Workforce Investment (WIOA) coordinator for Pitt County. Pre-hiring programs for businesses complement ongoing Customized Training and OJT experiences. ”

Dr. G. Dennis Massey, President

Pitt Community College continues to grow and evolve to serve our community and region, and there is no greater evidence of change than our facilities - the Science Building, the Law Enforcement Center, Greenville and Farmville Centers, and planned work on the Clifton Everett Building. But these are only the most visible developments. Responding to recommendations by the Aspen Institute consultants, progress on Goal #1 (Student Learning Success) of the 201417 Strategic Plan has intensified with the creation of ten Success Navigators. These new staff provide advising and individual support for all incoming students. Completion of degrees and certificates by all credit students, already on the rise, will be a primary focus through close collaboration with faculty, student services and IT staff. Aspen also stressed ramping up our “front door experience.” The creation of three Career Coach positions in Pitt County high schools along with the burgeoning STEM-focused Early College High School on campus illustrate our dedication to making PCC attractive and accessible. This pre-college emphasis is complemented by streamlining entry for adult and transfer students as well. Great changes in the past year in connecting with company and university partners have prompted internships and other work-based learning experiences in support of Goals #2 and 3 of the Strategic Plan (Workforce Development and Community Engagement). Support for job seekers as well as employers is more effective now since PCC has become the Workforce Investment (WIOA) coordinator for Pitt County. Pre-hiring programs for businesses complement ongoing Customized Training and OJT experiences. Our support for Patheon, Mayne Pharma, and other companies will be enhanced by the new Pharmaceutical Training and Education Center. The Farmville Center opened in early 2016 and is serving a growing number of learners and employers. Of course, it all comes down to individuals, and you will read in this report about some superior performers and programs. Check us out at our website, or at our Facebook page for up-to-date information, outreach, and activities. We are here to serve YOU by educating and empowering people for success. Dr. G. Dennis Massey President, Pitt Community College

From the Board of Trustees Chair Former First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt is credited with saying, “When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die.” I feel honored to be able to contribute to the leadership and growth of Pitt Community College. It has allowed me, in a volunteer capacity, to remain “alive” in the educational environment and to be a part of the many positive contributions PCC is making relative to the economy and education of Pitt and surrounding counties.

A Look Back at the past year

Aspen Institute’s “NC Roadmap to Excellence” Experts Produce Report on College’s Strengths and Areas for Improvement Pitt Community College employees and students met with community college experts from the prestigious Aspen Institute in the fall of 2015 in an effort to help the college continue improving student success and services. PCC was one of eight North Carolina community colleges selected to participate in Aspen Institute’s “North Carolina Roadmap to Excellence Project.” The goal was to identify the college’s strengths and areas for improvement. “The Aspen Institute review is a demonstration of Pitt Community College’s commitment to excellence and continuous improvement,” said PCC Vice President of Academic Affairs Tom Gould, who developed the college’s application for the project and coordinated the visit. “The objective is to help PCC be the best it can be with regard to serving students and helping them achieve their educational goals.” Four Aspen Institute experts—Elaine Baker, Marc Herzog, Josh Wyner and Mark Toner—conducted the two-day review at PCC. Baker is an expert in career pathways for low-skilled adults and accelerated developmental education learning communities, while Herzog is chancellor emeritus of the Connecticut Community College System. Wyner is vice president and executive director of Aspen Institute’s College Excellence Program, and Toner is a consultant specializing in K-12 and higher education issues. “These are experienced professionals in higher education with longstanding and recognized commitment to student achievement,” Gould said. “We will welcome their recommendations with open minds.” 7


Pitt Community College

During their visit, the experts gathered information on a wide range of topics, including faculty professional development, academic advising and support, student completion and job placement, career pathways, college transfer, underserved populations and institutional culture. Gould noted that in addition to employees, the team met with students and student leaders to get their perspectives on PCC. According to a news release from Aspen Institute, the “North Carolina Roadmap to Excellence Project’’ seeks to improve outcomes in five areas: student learning, certificate and degree completion, transfer and bachelor’s degree completion, employment and earnings, and access and success for minority and low-income students. “We are delighted that the president of Pitt (G. Dennis Massey) invited us in, both to show the strong practices at Pitt that lead to student success and for us to share recommendations from elsewhere in the country,” Wyner said. “We’ve been really pleased with how forthright and positive faculty and staff have been in sharing their experiences and thoughts.” Fourteen community colleges applied to participate in the Aspen Institute project, but only eight were accepted. In addition to PCC, community colleges selected for the project were Brunswick, Central Carolina, Cleveland, Coastal Carolina, Davidson County, Guilford Technical, and Halifax. PCC President G. Dennis Massey said it was “an honor” for Pitt to be selected for the Aspen Institute site visit.

2016 Report To The Community

“Experiences like the visit from Aspen allow us to see our work in relation to national standards and practices,” Massey said. Following up on the recommendations of the Aspen Institute “Roadmap to Excellence” report received in March 2016, Vice Presidents Thomas Gould and Donald Spell created a Student Success Action Council to combine instructional and student services divisions and the efforts of all PCC personnel in supporting students through all stages of contact with the College through graduation, transfer, and job placement. This comprehensive and integrated approach will focus on individualized attention, coaching and monitoring performance, and bringing new resources, both analytical and financial, to help realize our college mission “to educate and empower people for success.” Each department at the College has also developed specific and measurable targets for facilitating and improving support and customer service which will improve student success rates. These targets will also support existing goals and objectives in the 2014-2017 Strategic Plan. The results will reinforce efforts to raise results in the NC Community Colleges Performance Measures, which are tied to performance funding and to the PCC Strategic Plan.

Success Navigators Focus on Student Success The Aspen Institute’s “NC Roadmap to Excellence” project builds upon what we have been doing in the 2014-17 Strategic Plan and the Enrollment Management Steering Committee’s activities. In essence, it increases our individualization of learning and support for all students through all employees’ broader participation in setting and achieving specific targets for improvement during the crucially important first year of student enrollment. The responses to the Aspen recommendations will also apply this focus on students far earlier and in a more intensive way to increase their chances of success when attending Pitt Community College. The first year experience will be enhanced through a Centralized Advising approach which has been successful

Student Highlights and achievements

Youngest Student Earns Associate Degree youngest) student to complete the Career and College Promise (CCP) College Transfer pathway. Unsatisfied by just those distinctions, he went on to become PCC’s youngest Associate in Science graduate.

Charles Goodman IV

At an age most teenagers are thinking about learner’s permits and high school dances, Charles Goodman IV had his mind set on obtaining a college degree. As a result, the 15-year old Greenville resident became Pitt Community College’s first-ever (and North Carolina’s

The son of Charles Goodman III (PCC Science Instructor) and wife Tatjana, Charles completed the CCP College Transfer pathway by combining AP classes at J.H. Rose High School with online and hybrid classes that he took at PCC after school and during the summer. Upon completing his pathway, he took advanced coursework at Pitt to finish the Associate in Science Degree this past summer. Started in 2012, CCP is tuition-free and open to all high school juniors and seniors in North Carolina (public, private and home schooled) who want to take

college classes while they are still in high school. Like Goodman, once students complete their chosen pathways, they may select additional coursework to complete associate degrees. Those who complete college transfer degrees can move on to one of the 16 University of North Carolina four-year institutions with junior status. Goodman, who credits J.H. Rose Counselor Chynna Grady and PCC Career and College Promise Program Director Alton Wadford with making it possible for him to successfully complete his pathway and associate degree, is considering a bachelor’s degree in either math or physics. For more information on the CCP program at Pitt, call (252) 493-7411 or visit the “Career and College Promise” page on the PCC website.

PCC Holds First National CIT Signing Day The Construction and Industrial Technology (CIT) Division joined technical institutions across the country on February 18, 2016 as part of National Career and Technical Education (CTE) Letter of Intent Signing Day. Sponsored by the National Coalition of Certification Centers, the program featured 88 students who were preparing for college enrollment in fall 2016 taking part in a ceremony similar to an athletic signing event. “The purpose of this signing event was to recognize future students here at PCC within the CIT division but also to validate the importance these students will play in our community and workforce of the future,” Faithful said. PCC was one of 16 technical institutions around the country that hosted signing day ceremonies. All were tied together by live simulcasts aired nationwide. This was the first year PCC sponsored such an event and was the first event of its kind held in North Carolina and east of Tennessee. Alvin Frazier, CIT Recruiting Coordinator for PCC, said 9

signing day was also a chance for industry leaders to meet with students and their families and talk with them about highdemand jobs in many industries including transportation, engineering, HVAC, electrical, welding, and manufacturing.

2016 Report To The Community

Gardner Receives NC Academic Excellence Award colleges in recognition of outstanding achievement in the classroom and volunteerism. “It has been an honor to have Mary Gardner in our program and my classroom for the past two years …,” Coleman said. “Life circumstances brought her to a new phase and she chose a legal career—much to our delight. She is hard-working and thoughtful, and her enthusiasm for the law has spread to her fellow students.” Mary Gardner

Pitt Community College selected Paralegal Technology student Mary Gardner as its recipient of the 2016 N.C. Community College System Academic Excellence Award. Gardner, a Greenville native, received her award at PCC’s annual Academic Excellence Awards program in the Craig F. Goess Student Center to recognize 50 of its best and brightest students. PCC Paralegal Technology Director Vicki Coleman nominated Gardner for the statewide award, which is presented annually to a top student from each of North Carolina’s 58 community

Gardner says she first enrolled at PCC in the spring of 2013 at age 46, having served in the Air Force and operating a home and office cleaning service. She said she entered higher education with no real direction and an intense fear of failure. “I did not excel in high school, and it had been over 18 years since I was in a classroom setting,” she explained. “In my first semester, it was my English 111 instructor who steered me toward the paralegal program at Pitt Community College, based on my love of reading, research and writing. In Legal Research and Writing (class), I found that I excelled way beyond anything I could have imagined for myself.”

Gardner has indeed excelled in the classroom with a 3.94 GPA in her Paralegal Technology classes and a cumulative 3.79 GPA. She is a member of several paralegal clubs and organizations, including the national paralegal honor society and PCC Paralegal Association, and is responsible for starting and leading a study group that has helped raise the performance of a number of her classmates. “My experience with Pitt Community College, faculty and staff has been one of the most rewarding of my life,” Gardner says. “I have developed a passion and enthusiasm for knowledge that is a direct result of the tutelage and advising of (PCC’s) Dr. Lora Clark, Vicki Coleman and Anthony Dunn. I have been the humble receiver of their intense desire to ensure I succeed at all my future endeavors.” Upon completing her associate degree in Paralegal Technology, Gardner says she plans to continue her education. She wants to obtain an Associate in Arts Degree at PCC before moving on to pursue a bachelor’s degree in history. “PCC faculty, staff and instructors helped me find my passion and then steered me toward it,” Gardner said.

Petty Gives $5000 Donation Toward Scholarships In October of 2015, a group of second-year Automotive Systems Technology (AST) students traveled to Randleman, NC to assist with the 5th Annual Petty’s Garage Car Show and meet with NASCAR legend Richard Petty. The visit was part of an agreement the college signed three years ago to become an “educational affiliate” of Petty’s Garage, a high-performance speed shop the Hall-of-Fame driver created in 2008. The Petty partnership has been a benefit to the AST program. In addition to increasing student interest in automotive service careers, it has also led to unique educational opportunities for his students, including a project to restore the car Petty drove to Victory Lane in the 1981 Daytona 500 and an internship for three students and an instructor. “The King,” as Petty is known to legions of NASCAR fans, presented the PCC group with a $5,000-check on behalf of Petty’s Garage, which will fund future automotive scholarships.

College Highlights and advancements

PACE Climate Study Pitt Community College published the results of a recent campus climate study that shows scores higher than peer institutions in most of the areas measured and across-the-board improvement at PCC since the same survey was conducted in 2006. According to an executive summary from the N.C. State University National Initiative for Leadership and Institutional Effectiveness (NILIE), PCC offered a Personal Assessment of the College Environment (PACE) survey to 477 full-time employees in October 2015 and ended up bettering its scores in each of the four domains the instrument measured. By examining institutional structure, student focus, supervisory relations and teamwork, PACE surveys provide a comprehensive picture of an institution’s campus climate. PCC’s survey stated that the college’s mean score of 3.816 indicated “a healthy campus climate.”

“I am extremely pleased that our increase in scores in all categories rose to a statistically significant degree since the last survey conducted in 2006,” Massey said. “It demonstrates that our efforts to improve communications and teamwork over the years have shown improvement. We were able to record these advances with a more than 10 percent greater participation rate than earlier studies.” As part of Pitt’s most recent PACE study, the college’s results were measured against scores from 87 institutions in the NILIE National Normbase, 27 large twoyear colleges and seven South Atlantic institutions. “At PCC, our performance depends upon the contributions of all our employees and the organizational structure and

According to the NILIE summary, 327 PCC employees (68.6 percent) completed the 56-item PACE assessment. Participants answered questions covering each of the four domains being measured by giving rated responses (from a low of “1” to a high of “5”). When compared to the PACE survey conducted at PCC in 2006, the college improved its teamwork score from 3.79 to 4.08 and its student focus mark from 3.79 to 4.0. PCC’s supervisory relations score rose from 3.68 in 2006 to 3.98 in 2015, and its institutional structure result jumped from 3.12 to 3.41. |

Pitt Community College

“The results compared with national and regional norms created by this nationally-respected research group may suggest that we further improve our structure and communications.” Within the student focus domain, which examines the centrality of students to the actions of the institution as well as the extent to which students are prepared for post-institution endeavors, PCC scored 4.0. That was better than large two-year schools (3.69), South Atlantic colleges (3.97) and the NILIE Norm (3.75). The full 2015 NILIE report is available on PCC’s official website. Reports from PACE studies conducted at PCC in 2003 and 2006 are also available.

PCC President G. Dennis Massey says the climate survey “gives both general and specific perspectives” on how Pitt employees view their jobs, their working relationships, and the direction of the institution.

He also continues to support PCC’s Respiratory Therapy program by serving as a preceptor and tutor for current students and facilitating the respiratory therapy component of the program’s

summer camp for Pitt County Schools Health Sciences Academy students. Though she never attended PCC, Langston worked for the college as Horizons Program coordinator at the conclusion of a 25-year career with Pitt County Schools. Now fully retired, she serves as a PCC Foundation Board member and co-chairs its special events committee. PCC Events Specialist Erin Greenleaf nominated Langston for her award, which was created in 2011 to honor individuals who have not graduated from PCC but have adopted the college as their own through outstanding service and loyalty.
