Annual Report

St. Charles Community College


St. Charles Community College is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

Opening Doors

Each academic year is distinct and in 2012-13, St. Charles Community College made its mark by walking through new doors.

#weKNOWteamwork If two heads are better than one, consider the strength and creativity of 26. That’s the number of combined SCC faculty and staff who united to share the college’s story photographically from the first day of fall classes through graduation in May. Embracing the trend of raw, user-generated Internet content, SCC re-imagined how future and current students might catch a glimpse of Cougar life. Through a series of 272 photographs, the #DailyPhoto team, comprising every skill level and camera type, recorded SCC history from a brand new perspective. Enjoy their photos throughout this report.

Faculty and staff built the foundation for a long-range plan that will result in action plans based in new strategic directions and a meaningful revision to the college’s mission, vision and values. A unique collaborative agreement with Lindenwood University means that students will now have access to a state-of-the-art virtual hospital at a new location for the college’s nursing and allied health programs in Fall 2013. Teamwork was key in meeting enrollment challenges – utilizing new ways of reaching out to current and prospective students about the value of their community college. High-quality workforce training, personal development classes and student support

remained a hallmark of SCC’s services to the community. One example came in the form of an augmented learning environment to better serve our returning servicemen and women and their families. Looking at our processes and practices from a new perspective has been embraced by the campus community, and our students and visitors are the benefactors. Our collective successes – those of faculty, staff and students – were recognized when the St. Louis PostDispatch named SCC as a 2013 Top Workplace. I look forward to another year of opening doors for our students and the region.

Opportunities, E x pa n d e d . Nursing and Allied Health Sciences

A collaboration with Lindenwood University completed in March resulted in a summer move of SCC’s nursing and allied health programs to the former Barat Academy in Dardenne Prairie, now the LU-SCC Center for Nursing and Allied Health Sciences, providing training for in-demand careers and access to professional development for the community. The Fall 2013 launch brings a doubling of capacity and the region’s first Virtual Hospital – a state-of-the-art simulated educational experience that features four fully equipped hospital training rooms. In addition, nursing students have access to Central Methodist University’s RN to BSN program on campus following an April agreement.

#DailyPhoto Day 82: To train students in growing healthcare and manufacturing careers, SCC’s Workforce Development Department – as part of a consortium with Missouri college partners – obtained about $2.5 million in multi-year federal grants.

B r i n g i n g Pe o p l e Not unlike Oprah’s Book Club, which ended in 2011, Between the Covers was created to build community and spark lively discussion centered around a book.

together

Connecting the Campus Community

The Multicultural Programming Committee’s Spring 2013 launch of the book club got faculty, students and staff analyzing, debating and laughing during conversations focused on three very different novels. “The club fosters a great sense of community as you talk about what you’ve read and consider another’s perspective,” said Julia Wilbers, SCC reference librarian. Its success means new authors will be discovered with perhaps an eye on surpassing Oprah’s run of 15 years and 70 book club recommendations.

The Swerve “In all my years in education, I have not witnessed a richer academic dialog than the discussion held on The Swerve,” said SCC President Ron Chesbrough. The SCC faculty’s summer reading challenge, authored by Stephen Greenblatt, found some 100 faculty and staff sharing a philosophical conversation on the 2012 Pulitzer Prize Winner for General Non-Fiction.

Businesses, community members invest in education

The piece of equipment may not be large, but the gift and its impact are huge for SCC chemistry students. An autosampler purchased through a gift to the Foundation by Richard and Linda Jensen better prepares students for future studies and careers by providing hands-on experience and undergraduate research opportunities. Support provided by SCC donors through scholarships and academic enhancement funding like the autosampler promote student success. Major donations of $10,000+ came from patrons such as UPS, General Motors Wentzville Assembly, Emerson Climate Technologies – Flow Controls, Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital/ Progress West, the SCC Employee Sponsored Program and an anonymous donor. The SCC Foundation has awarded more than $1.6 million in support since its inception.

american theatre festival

English and history education extend to the stage

Historical figures and classic drama brought learning to life with the introduction of the American Theatre Festival. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? RFK, and Gertrude Stein and a Companion were just a few of the opportunities academic departments provided for faculty and students to engage in class, on stage and through social media. Films and lectures lured students through the streets of old Paris, and seminars about civil rights and the life of Robert Kennedy allowed participants to live, for a moment, in tumultuous times in the country’s history. New ways of retelling stories of the past engaged and entertained audiences and kept education at center stage.

#DailyPhoto Day 70: The inaugural Cougar Car Show brought community and families to campus for a display of classic cars, drift cars, specialty cars and more, as well as music, food, vendors and drawings for prizes.

In the midst of its 25th anniversary, SCC experienced a leadership transition and faced a changing external environment – making it the right time to look ahead and beyond.

theplan How do you follow 25 successful years of service? The answer is simple, but the work that follows is certainly not.

College-wide planning efforts in Fall 2012 set the groundwork for the Long-Range Planning Steering Committee, charged with creating a plan to position SCC for the next 25 years. The committee revisited the college’s mission, vision and values and developed strategic directions and objectives to move the college forward with purpose. Within work groups came discussion. Then, a plan. The formula for long-range planning was constructed in 2012-13, but the answers to the blueprint will be presented in the coming year and beyond as groups submit their action plans and faculty and staff go about the business of working them – with SCC’s mission, vision and values as their foundation. #ONWARD

Storytelling in the classroom is common, but when movement takes the place of the spoken word, SCC continuing education students find themselves in the center of an experiential approach to learning. Instructor Dori Neumeier brings years of training along with her passion for hula to the classroom, teaching the dance but also exposing students to the history and culture of hula. Her dedication was rewarded when she was invited to the elite Merrie Monach Festival in Hawaii. “I was immersed in how it looked there, what it smelled like and what it felt like, so I can express that when I teach.�
