Creating Global Citizens

One Trip at a Time

Students at Washtenaw Community College aren’t limited to learning and growing just on the college’s Ann Arbor campus. The school’s study abroad programs provide the chance to find enrichment on a global level while giving students a hands-on opportunity to broaden their personal perspectives of the world. It’s a chance many students at community colleges never receive and one WCC is proud to offer.

4 | Launch Winter 2019


“W

e wanted to make a push for more international experiences for students,” said Don Werthmann, faculty member of WCC’s Digital Media Arts program. “This is true job satisfaction, to shift a student’s perspective gives them a moment to pause and talk about different cultures.” Building on those ideas, WCC recently launched its Global Endorsement program. The program recognizes students for gaining worldwide experience both at home and in countries around the world. They earn certification through coursework that can take them across the globe, experiencing cultures and communities in other parts of the world. This summer Werthmann, in conjunction with an organization called Global Education Oregon (GEO), oversaw a study abroad experience to Spain for 18 days. 11 WCC students from his Digital Photography courses participated. They ranged in age from 20 to 73 years old. Werthmann said the experience was invaluable, not just because of the scenery and cultural opportunities, but because the group coalesced, despite the generation gaps. Each day started with organized coursework. Students then went on field excursions throughout the day, photographing what they saw on the streets and villages in parts of Spain. They navigated public transportation and walked nearly 10 miles each day to experience cities like Madrid, Segovia, Las Arenas, Oviedo and more. They visited museums, lived with locals and interacted with people who could impact their mindset forever.

Past WCC student groups have already traveled to Japan, Spain, Turkey, England and France, among other countries. They can stay for a few weeks, a semester or an entire academic year. There, they have studied art, architecture, social sciences and government. At the same time, they are immersed in that country’s culture, free to explore, live with locals and experience a global landscape that will shape the way they not only see the world, but themselves and their own communities at home. “Students are able to experience everyday life,” Werthmann said. “People live all over the world, but their experience of life isn’t much different than ours. They want good jobs and good homes, too. It helps students realize how far they’ve come, that there is a lot we share.”

“This was more than a ‘trip’ and more than a course,” said WCC student Kornelius Patter who participated in the recent trip to Spain. “I am now more cognizant conveying meaning through my work, and feel the importance of developing a style, and creating a personal vision.” As a result of their work and experience, these students have completed one part of the Global Endorsement program at WCC. This program aims to equip students with a skill set that they can show to future employers.

ONCE CONVINCED COLLEGE WASN’T FOR HIM, WCC ALUMNUS NOW PLANS FOR HIS FUTURE DOCTORAL DEGREE.

6 | Launch Winter 2019

The night before starting classes at Washtenaw Community College in the fall of 2016, Michael Kozma laid in bed contemplating his future. He grabbed his phone from the nightstand and typed into Google: How to succeed in college. Not surprisingly, the search did not result in any secret formula. But Kozma found one all on his own over his two years at WCC. He says the recipe was a dash of maturity on his part and heaping scoops of knowledge and confidence piled on him by WCC faculty, counselors and advisers. “Two years ago, I was a college dropout who hadn’t had an A in a class this decade,” the 27-year-old said. “Two years from now, if everything goes as planned, I’ll be applying to Ivy League doctoral programs. That is really insane if you think about where I started, and WCC is a big part of the reason for it.”


Kozma recently completed a 66-credit transfer guide built specifically for WCC students headed to the University of Michigan’s College of Literature, Science, and the Arts with a 4.0 grade point average (GPA). He started classes at U-M on September 4 with a doublemajor in Economics and Math Science.

proper effort. Advisers convinced him attending U-M wasn’t a pipe dream, despite that disastrous first attempt at a four-year institution. Another instructor insisted there’s no reason a community college student shouldn’t be aiming for a doctorate degree. They were all right, of course.

Not bad for a high school student who spent one forgettable year at a small four-year college, where he admits he rarely went to class and essentially flunked out before enlisting in the U.S. Army. Upon discharge, he moved back to Chelsea, Mich. where he worked as a security guard, delivered pizza and spent plenty of time slumped on the couch pondering his future.

“I think a lot of people at WCC doubt themselves, just like I did in so many ways,” Kozma said. “But the instructors do believe in you, and that can make all the difference.”

GOLD-LEVEL STATUS “I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE AT WCC DOUBT THEMSELVES, JUST LIKE I DID IN SO MANY WAYS. BUT THE INSTRUCTORS DO BELIEVE IN YOU, AND THAT CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.”

“You start to perceive yourself differently,” Kozma said. “Eventually you think, ‘Maybe this is my lot in life. Maybe I don’t have the ambition to go any further.’ But with a little encouragement, everything starts changing.” Everything did change when Kozma enrolled at WCC in preparation to apply to the college’s Police Academy, which requires a minimum of 45 college credits. He never got around to applying – not because of more failure, but because of unprecedented success. He finished that first semester with a 4.0 GPA and a whole new world of possibilities opened up ahead of him. Kozma said layers of self-doubt began to peel away with every interaction he had at WCC. Instructors convinced him he would excel academically with

Michigan’s First Center of Excellence in Nursing Education If you think Washtenaw Community College has a great Nursing program, you would be right. But you don’t have to take our word for it. This fall, the National League for Nursing (NLN) designated WCC as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education. WCC is the first college in Michigan to receive this prestigious recognition and joins a select number of colleges around the country to receive this honor. The NLN formally recognized WCC during their 2018 Education Summit in Chicago on September 14. “To be the first in the state of Michigan – and one of only a handful of two-year colleges in the nation – to receive this honor is something that WCC should be exceptionally proud of,” said WCC President Dr. Rose B. Bellanca. “We’re all so thankful to the Nursing faculty and staff that built such a tremendous program.” While the college celebrates this achievement, the group that will gain the most from it is our students. “When they graduate, they’re going to have the Center of Excellence in Nursing Education icon on their diploma, and that’s significant,” continued Bellanca. “Prospective employers can be assured that our students graduated from one of the top-tier programs in the country. 8 | Launch Winter 2019


Feedback from the NLN indicated that the selection committee was particularly impressed with the firstof-its-kind in Michigan Collaborative Nursing Program that WCC formed with Eastern Michigan University (EMU). To address the growing demand for bachelor’s degree-prepared nurses, WCC and EMU created a program that allows students to complete five semesters at WCC and seamlessly transfer to EMU to complete a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing (BSN) in three additional semesters. Therefore, students earn their BSN in three years attending classes year round. “I had been a veterinarian technician for 10 years, and knew I wanted to become a nurse like my mother. I’m so glad that I decided to join the program; it was an excellent decision,” said 2017 EMU/WCC BSN Collaborative program graduate Laura Antuna. When students complete the EMU/ WCC BSN Collaborative program they will have saved approximately $18,585 versus attending EMU alone. Reducing the number of credits required to graduate from 72 to 63 is another innovation introduced by WCC to help students save money and complete their BSN. The WCC Nursing

program is one of the first in the state to institute such a reduction. It’s also one of the lowest number of credits required for graduation among schools without a state mandate. This allows students to further their education and enter the

workforce with less debt. This credit reduction was established by utilizing a concept-based curriculum under the guidance of Donna Ignatavicius, an internationally recognized nursing author and educational expert. 9


WCC WOMEN TAKING ON MALE-DOMINATED OCCUPATIONS Nontraditional careers for women, over the years, have included occupations like architect, computer software engineer, detective, and mechanic, among dozens of others. For Candace Nelson and Jessica Ravizza, the term “nontraditional” won’t be that way for long. They are going to render the “non” completely irrelevant.

T

he need for skilled machinists, mechanics, electricians and other trades continues to grow, while qualified job prospects are hard to come by and many high-paying positions go unfulfilled. Early in 2018, Gov. Rick Snyder announced an initiative called the Marshall Plan for Talent. It is designed to pump more than $100 million into K–12 education over five years to get young people the skills they need to join these fields.

A nontraditional occupation for women is one in which women comprise 25 PERCENT OR LESS of total employment.

WCC student Candace Nelson knows this very well. She enrolled at WCC in Fall 2017, is in the midst of pursuing two associate’s degrees (Automotive Service Technology and Powertrain Development Technician), while working in the field to pursue her passion of becoming a skilled mechanical service technician. “After a few years of job hopping, unhappiness and being depressed about where my life was at, I decided that’s it, I’m making a change,” Nelson said. “Automotive was one of the few interests I had dabbled in. I thoroughly enjoyed working on my car and found myself completely enamored and wanting to learn more each time.” Entering and succeeding in a male-dominated occupation usually comes from a specific passion. Oftentimes, women pursuing careers in the trades, law enforcement or executive-level environments are usually doing so because their career desire is too great to overlook, whether the field is all men or not. 10 | Launch Winter 2019

I’m just as capable as anyone else.” For young girls out there trying to determine what they want in a career, Ravizza has some advice. “You have to follow what you love and do it,” she said. “Show them you can do it. Young girls are strong. They can prove it to themselves and everyone else.”

While attending the police academy, Ravizza and her fellow cadets were immersed in an in-depth array of coursework and practical hands-on experiences, which included driving, firearms use and first aid, along with written and practical tests that must be passed. In her class of 34 graduates, only three were women. She was class president. “I always wanted to go the academy,” Ravizza said. “I always wanted to do something bigger than myself. At times, as a woman I feel like I have to work harder, but the generation we’ve grown up in, sees women as more competent.

TRAINING THE NEXT GENERATION, TODAY WCC SETS UP THE NEXT GENERATION FOR SUCCESS IN SCHOOL, CAREERS AND BEYOND The facts say it all: The need for people to fill STEM careers will remain in demand as technology continues to be woven into the makeup of everyday life. The growing need is being met by many higher education institutions, including Washtenaw Community College. Jobs such as computer programming, mechanical engineering, cybersecurity and health services fall under the umbrella of the sciences, technology, engineering and math career fields—better known as STEM. WCC offers comprehensive programs to train the next generation of STEM workers, and offers additional support including the STEM Scholars Program—created in partnership with Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Wayne State University and Western Michigan University as part of a National Science Foundation grant. “With this program, you actually have people with the same goals trying to take the same steps you are that are pushing you to be great,” Emijoel Lantigua, a STEM Scholar, explained. “I just feel that there are more people who have my back and are supporting me.” Through relationships built with other institutions and the Michigan Transfer Agreement, WCC students in any STEM career path can easily roll their credits into earning a bachelor’s degree. The STEM Scholars Program also opens doors for summer research opportunities. “I really think the STEM Scholars Program is going to help build a network and community through the STEM field,” engineering student Alicia Schmidt said. “I can see us in five, seven years down the line having each other’s back and pointing each other toward job openings.”
