Our cover story this month focuses on the professional trades. Shortages of qualified workers—known as the “skills gap”—presents a challenge for employers and an opportunity for students. To put it simply, we need more people in the professional trades. According to the Pure Michigan Talent Connect website mitalent.org, most of the high-wage, high-demand job growth in professional trades in Michigan will be in the areas of construction and manufacturing, information technology, and healthcare. In the next ten years, job growth for the top 25 most in-demand jobs in these fields will increase more than 15 percent on average. Professional trade careers are changing. In the building trades, union members are as likely to use a computer on the job as they are a hammer. These careers also include jobs in fields like cybersecurity and nursing, which we have highlighted in this issue of Launch. By showcasing opportunities in the skilled trades, Washtenaw Community College and the State of Michigan, through its “Going Pro” campaign, aims to encourage more high school and community college students to consider professional trade careers. Whether your career goals include an apprenticeship in the skilled trades or a transfer to a four-year college or university, Washtenaw Community College can help you achieve them. With warm regards,

New associate degree paves career pathway for high-demand cybersecurity professionals

E

mail scams, high-profile company data breaches, identity thefts and personal account information leaks are among the cybercrimes that keep company CEOs and consumers alike awake at night. To combat these cybercriminals, companies are turning to professionals with the skills and knowledge to protect our digital information. And Washtenaw Community College is training the next generation of these cyber sleuths and cyber sheriffs to protect our computers, networks and programs and data from attacks, damage and unauthorized access.

$75 BILLION INDUSTRY NEEDS YOU According to a Forbes report, the cybersecurity field is expected to grow from a $75 billion industry in 2015 to a $170 billion industry by 2020. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts information 4 | Launch Winter 2018

security analyst to experience an 18 percent job growth increase by 2024. WCC launched the Associate in Applied Science Degree in Cybersecurity program in the Fall semester in response to the overwhelming demand for skilled employees in this field. “WCC has a long history of being in the forefront of providing quality education in the field of information technology to residents of Washtenaw County and beyond,” said program advisor Michael Galea, a faculty member in WCC’s Computer Information Systems department. “With this associate degree, the College is providing the opportunity for our students to pursue either an entry-level position in network security or to transfer to a four-year college or university to continue their education.”

Healthy Futures New simulation lab aids nursing students in job preparedness

K

nowing the correct medical protocols to follow is critical when a patient goes into cardiac arrest. Responding to such a high-stress, life-threatening emergency is essential. In today’s fast-paced and rapidly evolving health care industry, where do the next generation of nurses learn to think on their feet in a health care emergency? More students are finding the answer in real-life simulation labs, like the one being built at Washtenaw Community College. WCC’s Nursing Program is pairing over 40 years of program teaching experience with new state-of the-art simulation labs to bring the very best in health care education to Washtenaw County.

“Simulation is becoming more popular in all health care fields,” said Valerie Greaves, Dean of Health Sciences at WCC. “In exposing students to these labs, we can put them through more patient scenarios than they would typically experience in their clinical rotations.”

simulation lab with multiple beds in the room. The rooms will have everything that you would expect to find: beds, sinks, supplies, and carts that are stocked and ready to go. The construction of a nurses’ station will add more realism to what a student will experience in a real hospital.

REAL-LIFE LAB

“The lab becomes a safe place where students can make errors and learn before they move to clinical rotations,” said Greaves. “Pairing the simulation lab with their on-site clinical experience is the best of both worlds.”

Simulation labs enable students to act out medical scenarios to learn how to problem-solve in real time and determine the most effective solution. It’s a great way to get a head start on hands-on clinical learning while boosting confidence and preparing nursing students for real-world situations. The new simulation lab at WCC will feature two actual patient rooms—instead of a typical

REGISTERED NURSE

$68,450 PER YEAR Simulation sessions are scripted by WCC faculty and the simulators are programmed to exhibit specific symptoms and to respond to the actions of the students. This includes cardiac disease/cardiac arrest, diabetes, respiratory issues, injuries and illnesses. In many cases, students from the College’s Performing Arts department are brought in as mock patients and trained on how to portray a disease. “We are currently working towards more collaboration amongst all of our health programs, which will better prepare our students for work in the real-world,” said Greaves. The Surgical Technology program already has a new simulation lab that mimics a two-room operating room and scrub-in station. It’s a winning combination that Greaves says provides students with an experience that is hard to find anywhere else. “We have received excellent reviews from students on their simulation exercises. They gain confidence and feel ready to begin their employment as a Registered Nurse or to pursue their bachelor’s degree.” WCC has multiple transfer agreements in place with four-year universities and colleges. “It’s a very easy transition for students going into a BSN program,” said Greaves. “The amount of handson experience our students get at WCC is amazing. They are more than ready when they transfer or enter the workforce.”

Kim Shields, Ypsilanti Kim Shields, 31, of Ypsilanti is enrolled in the Nursing program at Washtenaw Community College. “I come from a family of nurses,” Shields said. “I knew having the right schooling was important, so I did my research and it became very clear that WCC was where I needed to go.” Shields is on track to graduate with her associate degree in 2018. She plans on transferring to the University of Michigan to complete her Bachelor’s of Nursing.

PROGRAM INFORMATION: The Nursing Program at WCC prepares students for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEXRN). Credit earned in the nursing program can transfer to a BSN completion program. Learning opportunities are in the classroom, simulation lab, clinical setting and community.

NEW WORKERS ARE IN

DEMAND Building the next generation of skilled professionals at WCC

E

mployers throughout the country are facing a growing problem: finding workers with the necessary education, training and skills to fill the jobs vacated by an ever-increasing number of retiring baby boomers. This shortage of qualified workers— known as the “skills gap”—is a problem in Michigan, particularly in the construction industry, which is facing a deficit of carpenters, electricians and other skilled professionals. “There is a need for trained workers right now,” asserted Cristy Lindemann, chair of the Construction

8 | Launch Winter 2018

Technology program at Washtenaw Community College. In fact, the construction industry will need an additional 1.7 million workers by the year 2020, according to a recent Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook report. “Qualified, skilled workers are needed to build schools, hospitals and homes; repair roads and bridges; and maintain existing facilities,” Lindemann explained. “Thousands of jobs across the United States and Canada are currently going unfilled— these are high-earning, skilled jobs that we can help fill.”

Many people incorrectly believe the construction industry offers poor working conditions, low pay and long hours. But today’s skilled professionals earn competitive wages and benefits and have access to various training and development opportunities to support their careers. They also have opportunities to advance into management positions or become future business owners.


WCC CREATES NEW PRE-APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM WITH IRONWORKERS The recent creation of an Ironworkers Pre-Apprenticeship Program at WCC is the result of an alliance between WCC faculty, the International Union, and Ironworkers Local 25, and aims to address the industry’s huge need for skilled workers. Students who successfully complete the 24-credit program will be eligible for advanced standing in the Ironworker Local Union Apprenticeship Training Program. Training includes blueprint reading, safety and welding processes in use by ironworkers. A combination of classroom and lab training at WCC provides results that come with real-world experience. The program also includes math, safety and welding training and will introduce students to the necessary skills to be a union ironworker in the United States and Canada.

CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT PROGRAM The Construction Management program at Washtenaw Community College prepares students for either a job in the construction industry or a transfer to a bachelor’s degree program in construction management at a four-year college or university. The College works with The Washtenaw Contractor’s Association and the Building and Remodeling Association of Greater Ann Arbor to help graduates find employment. Students who transfer will continue developing the necessary skills to work as office, field, safety, project quality control engineering positions or a foreman, estimator, scheduler, expeditor, inspector, material representative, subcontractor, engineering/architectural firms, public agencies or trade associations.

CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY The Residential Construction program at WCC teaches students how to build a home from the ground up. The program offers a balance of classroom theory and hands on training from faculty and instructors with many years of industry experience. Students will also learn how to start up their own construction business. This program also offers transfer to four-year colleges for several potential bachelor degrees options.

Transfer Made Easy W

ashtenaw Community College has changed its general education requirements for associate degrees to ensure seamless transfer of courses to four-year colleges and universities across the state. These changes strengthen the college’s alignment with the Michigan Transfer Agreement. The Michigan Transfer Agreement improves the transferability of core college courses between Michigan community colleges and four-year institutions. More than 70 percent of students entering WCC intend to transfer to a four-year intuition. Given the college’s location in Ann Arbor, it’s not surprising that many WCC students look toward the University of Michigan to complete a

10 | Launch Winter 2018

bachelor’s degree. In fact, Washtenaw Community College sends more transfer students to U-M than any other community college. While transferring to U-M can be a daunting process, WCC’s transfer coordinators provide the support services to make the transition as easy as possible. WCC alumna L’Oreal HawkesWilliams successfully transferred into U-M by taking advantage of the one-on-one academic advising, mentoring and support provided by WCC. “The process of transferring to U-M was made less intimidating through WCC,” said Hawkes-Williams.


Hawkes-Williams got her start at WCC through organic gardening classes offered by the Community Enrichment department, which inspired her to enroll as a student where she developed a passion for biology. She credits Life Science faculty member David Wooten for inspiring her at WCC. “I took every class he had to offer,” she said. “He had such an interactive style of teaching I really enjoyed.” Today, Hawkes-Williams is majoring in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at U-M and was selected to be part of the 2017 summer fellow cohort in the U-M student project incubator optiMize. Through funding from the project, Hawkes-Williams opened a self-sustaining hydro-garden in the Brightmoor neighborhood of Detroit. She hopes the garden will become a learning hub for hydroponic food growing, sustainability and ecology.

WCC’s transfer programing provides the support services to make the transition to the University of Michigan as easy as possible. WCC offers students: • One-on-one academic advising • Mentoring support and advice to help make students as competitive as possible for admissions to U-M. • Workshops and seminars with U-M staff and students to provide information about resources and services available, as well as networking opportunities. • Assistance with the U-M application process. For more information, contact WCC transfer coordinator Alexandra McCracken at aleximc@wccnet.edu or 734-477-8519.

Max McVety is another student that successfully transferred to U-M from WCC. For McVety, the decision to attend WCC before transferring to U-M was one of dollars and sense. He knew he ultimately wanted to study engineering at the University of Michigan, but wanted to save some money along the way. For McVety, the only option he considered after high school was enrolling in WCC. “I knew my family would help out with college costs as much as possible, but that probably wouldn’t cover the full cost,” he said. “So, attending WCC was good for me and my family.” After completing a set of specified transfer courses at WCC, McVety transferred straight into the Michigan College of Engineering and earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in 2016. Just one year into his mechanical engineering career, McVety proudly claims to be student debt free. The WCC Board of Trustees approved the changes to the college’s general education requirements at its September 2017 meeting. These changes will ensure that students like Hawkes-Williams and McVety will be able to maximize the value of their WCC educational curriculum.

I knew my family would help out as much as possible, but that probably wouldn’t cover the full cost. So, attending WCC was good for me and my family.” - Max McVety, WCC transfer student to the University of Michigan College of Engineering 11
