Welcome to Launch At Washtenaw Community College, we are embracing new ways of teaching. Examples of this are IT-enabled tools like augmented reality, virtual reality and even holograms like the Microsoft Hololens demonstrated by nursing student Alexis LeBlanc on our cover as well as technology-enabled patient and birthing simulation labs and our Advanced Transportation Center. Another way that we are changing is by embracing shorter 10 to 12 credit certificate-based programs that offer students the skills they need when they need it. This fall, the College is introducing five new certificates programs in web design and development along with a new certificate in broadcast media arts and an associate degree in General Studies. I’m also happy to share our students’ stories of personal triumph and achievement with you. Like the story of Ahmed Ghalib, a 22-year-old Ann Arbor resident, who became the second WCC student in two years to receive the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship (value $120,000) following WCC alumna Maria “Paula” Salazar who won the award last year. Whether you are just starting out or looking to change professions, WCC offers a wide variety of classes and programs sure to fit your interests and career path. With credits that transfer to most Michigan universities, it’s never been easier to start and finish your college education. Start planning your future with WCC today. We look forward to seeing you on campus this fall. With warm regards,

New for Fall!

Washtenaw Community College is introducing seven new programs – an associate degree in general studies, five new certificates in web design and development, and a new certificate in broadcast media arts. Take a look at what’s new for the Fall 2019 semester, which begins on August 26!

Associate Degree in General Studies The new Associate in General Studies is a multidisciplinary degree that allows students to design a program that relates to their academic and career goals or explore options if they are not sure of their career path. “This degree is motivated by the ever-evolving needs of the 21st century workforce,” said Vice President of Instruction Dr. Kimberly Hurns. “It allows students to combine occupational and general education courses while digging into specific areas that will provide a strong foundation for a career path and/or transfer.” The curriculum for the transfer pathway includes nine general education classes to meet the requirements of the Michigan Transfer Agreement. The employment pathway has six classes to meet WCC associate degree general education requirements. Both pathways include six student-defined “concentration” classes and electives to fill out the 60-credit minimum.

4 | Launch Fall 2019

Web Design & Development Certificates WCC will offer five new web-based certificate programs that range from 10 to 12 credits in response to demand from students for shorter, stackable certificate programs. “Our previous certificate was attempting to build a web design generalist, someone who learned some things about everything. Our new certificates follow the industry trend of allowing students to rapidly specialize,” said Web Design & Development department faculty member Jason Withrow. “It’s a change in how the department operates, from building amazing generalists to building amazing specialists who can stack these certificates and become multi-specialists.” The new certificate programs being offered in Fall 2019 include Client-Side Web Developer (10–11 credit hours), Interface Designer (11–12 credit hours), User Experience Designer (11–12 credit hours), Server-Side Web Developer (11–12 credit hours) and Digital Strategist (11 credit hours). The Client-Side Web Developer Certificate and User Experience Designer Certificate programs can both be completed entirely online. The college also offers a 3+1 transfer agreement with Eastern Michigan University that results in a WCC associate degree and a Bachelor’s of Science in Communication Technology from EMU. Under that articulation agreement, 86 credits can be completed at WCC and 38 at EMU.

Broadcast Media Arts Certificate WCC will begin offering a new 12-credit certificate program designed to set the groundwork for a career in radio. The program’s four classes cover live production, editing, vocal delivery and scriptwriting. The required coursework can expand the skillset of people already working in related industries, such as journalism, public relations, marketing, advertising and media productions. Or it can help people who’ve already earned a degree but are looking to be retrained for a career switch. “Offering a certificate in Broadcast Media Arts will allow this population to be ready to make a career change, with just a few core courses,” said Dena Blair lead faculty member for the Broadcast Media Arts department.


A Reputation of Exceptionally Promising Students Pays Off For the second year in a row a WCC student is awarded the highly-selective Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholarship.

6 | Launch Fall 2019

For the second straight year, a Washtenaw Community College student is the recipient of a Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship that awards bachelor’s degree-seeking students up to $40,000 annually for as many as three years. Ahmed Ghalib, a 22-year-old Ann Arbor resident, is one of 61 community college students from across the nation awarded the scholarship and one of only two from the state of Michigan.

“I have been more than fortunate to have spent the past two years at WCC. Beyond the priceless education and personal skills developed at this institution lies the foundation of its

“This scholarship is absolutely phenomenal, so for WCC to get backto-back winners is like winning the lottery,” WCC Vice President of Student & Academic Services Linda Blakey said during a congratulatory meeting with Ghalib.

Beyond the priceless education and personal skills developed at this institution lies the foundation of its greatness – the instructors. They’ve made a profound impact on my life, personality and mindset. I will forever be in debt to their efforts, kindness and wisdom.”

WCC alumna Maria “Paula” Salazar was awarded the same scholarship last year. Ghalib, a Computer Science major who graduated from WCC in May with a 4.0 GPA, was born in Baghdad, Iraq, and came to the United States with his family in 2008. After graduating from Ann Arbor Pioneer High School in 2015, he worked for two years in retail and hospitality positions while focusing on his own tech-related project during his free time. He enrolled at WCC in 2017 to become more technically involved with other engineers in that software venture. “I started from the very bottom of the math sequence, but was fortunate enough to meet (WCC faculty member) Mr. Jason Davis, who not only made me love mathematics, but inspired me to aim for more than an associate degree.

greatness – the instructors. They’ve made a profound impact on my life, personality and mindset. I will forever be in debt to their efforts, kindness and wisdom.” Ghalib was one of nearly 1,500 students to apply for the 2019 Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship. According to a release, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation evaluates each submission based on academic ability, persistence, leadership, and service to others.

Start Here. Save Money. Then Transfer.

WCC makes it easy to transfer anywhere with a 2-year associate degree or transfer 30 credits to a four-year institution through the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA). Advantages of starting at WCC include: • Lower tuition rates • Smaller class sizes • Flexible class schedules • Online classes and programs • Full-time professional faculty • Personalized attention • Many 3+1 transfer programs Check out our transfer programs in Business, Criminal Justice, Liberal Arts, Math and Science and General Studies just to name a few at WCCNET.EDU/PROGRAMS.

Linda Blakey and VP of Instruction Kimberly Hurns congratulate Ghalib on being named a Jack Kent Cooke scholarship winner. 7

HIYAAM Yas had bounced around different colleges until finding a home at WCC in 2016. She recently completed the first 82 credits of WCC’s 3+1 transfer agreement with Eastern Michigan University. She’ll take a Supply Chain Management associate degree to EMU, where she’ll need just 42 credits to receive a bachelor’s degree in business administration.

“I fell in

with (WCC) and how

comfortable it made me feel. All of the instructors and administration are extremely helpful and want you to succeed. There are numerous resources to get you where you need to go.”

“I fell in love with (WCC) and how comfortable it made me feel,” Yas said. “All of the instructors and administration are extremely helpful and want you to succeed. There are numerous resources to get you where you need to go.”

Yas says everything she’s responsible for at her position was learned in her WCC courses.

WCC also helped Yas find work in her field. Acting on an opportunity shared by one of her instructors, Yas landed an internship opportunity at Interlog Services, a global freight, audit and payment company with offices in Ann Arbor. That internship turned into a full-time, salaried position.

“I would never have had this opportunity if it was not for the Supply Chain Operations program,” Yas said. “One of my favorite parts is that they are all online. I get to pace myself and work from home. It is extremely convenient and gives me zero excuses to slack off!”

JOE Joe Stiffler will graduate with a Supply Chain Management associate degree after the Fall 2019 semester, but is also already working in the industry. He said his experience at WCC has been remarkable.

“I want to say

to all

the great faculty who taught me how to become successful here at WCC.” Stiffler works as an inventory specialist for ThorLabs, a company that specializes in laser and fiber optic systems. Its ultrafast optoelectronics manufacturing operation in Ann Arbor is one of 17 locations around the world. He works to improve every aspect of the inventory for a smoother and more efficient operation.

“I’ve been taught success throughout all my classes (at WCC), from which I continue to grow every day,” Stiffler said. Stiffler transferred to WCC and said he “quickly learned that WCC had everything I was looking for.” Like Yas, Stiffler said the online learning opportunities helped him gain an education on his own schedule. “I want to say thanks to all the great faculty who taught me how to become successful here at WCC,” Stiffler said.

The Foundations in Digital Video I class at Washtenaw Community College is designed to introduce students to “the basics of video production and editing,” but one project created in that class last year went far beyond the “basics.” “Wild Thoughts,” a 3-minute dance video created and directed by Jacqueline Steinbacher, won two first-place awards from the Michigan Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences 41st annual Student Production Awards. According to WCC Digital Media Arts faculty members Dan Kier and Matt Zacharias, the college’s screening committee has never submitted work produced in VID 105 to the Michigan NATAS for award consideration. That changed this year, and the decision was validated when “Wild Thoughts” won in two categories: Music Video and Director. Steinbacher, a 30-year-old professional dancer from Ann Arbor, returned to WCC to learn the technical skills necessary to accomplish her artistic vision of filming dance from the dancers’ perspective. She pitched the idea in class and was joined for the project by fellow students Adam Campos, Zahra Sule and Josh Zucal, who shared the Music Video award.

Three other WCC students earned first-place honors during the April awards show. Mike Herrst won in the Short FormNon-Fiction category for his autobiographical documentary, “The Shots That Count,” about overcoming addiction; Liam Cares won in the Photographer category for the footage used in the profile of his artist father, “Turning Back the Clock;” and Johannes Pardi won in the Animation/Graphics/Special Effects category for “Delusia.” The five first-place awards won by WCC students was second only to the six awarded to students from Michigan State University.


“The goal of the video was to amplify what dancers would like to show during their dance,” Steinbacher said. “Whether it is the emotion of a particular movement, or the speed, or the musicality – I was looking to bring attention to those individual aspects within a dance, and to bring out the overall beauty of dance.” Steinbacher, who already earned a WCC associate degree in photography, is pursuing another in Digital Video Production. But she says she plans to stick around as long as it takes to learn everything she can to master her latest artistic vision.

DIGITAL VIDEO PRODUCTION Learn how to design, record and edit video for the Web and other media for documentary, commercial, artistic, or other purposes. Students prepare for entry-level media production positions and gain skills in the use of computer software applications for digital video. Graduates from WCC’s certificate programs can be assured that they are learning current industry standards and practices in state-of-the-art labs using the latest equipment.


WCC nursing student Alexis LeBlanc uses a pair of Microsoft HoloLens to interact with a virtual human heart using the Insight Heart app. A one-dimensional version of what she’s seeing is displayed on the monitor behind her.


ith the flick of her forefinger, Alexis LeBlanc opened the human heart floating in front of her. Through a combination of similar hand movements and voice commands, the holographic heart moved – and annotations appeared – to display exactly what happens inside the heart during abnormal cardiac activity. After that short lesson using the latest in augmented reality technology, the Washtenaw Community College nursing student was able to detect changes in heart functioning on the monitors connected to the simulated patient in another lab. The Microsoft HoloLens glasses and Insight Heart app being tested by students in the Nursing Concepts III class is part of the college’s continual effort to remain current with technological trends in education. “Augmented and virtual reality allows educators to create and utilize technology to better portray real-life scenarios; there’s software that has capabilities to create a certain environment that might be difficult to simulate in real life,” says WCC Health Services Lab Coordinator Benjamin Morhan, who administered the training session. “Basically, augmented reality and virtual reality can make the impossible possible. And that experience will complement the education of our students by giving them new ways of learning.”
