Invitation to View Learner Services Holiday Décor

This year, the division of Learner Support Services launched its first Office Decorating Competition, and we invite our colleagues across the campus to visit our areas for some holiday cheer!

Please stop by during the official judging period to enjoy some light refreshments provided by some of the offices that entered the competition. 

We have recruited 3 people from outside of our division to judge the following areas:

  • Washington County Center
  • Financial Aid
  • Student Records
  • Admissions & Advising
  • Disability Resource Center

The judging will take place from 10 a.m. – noon on Thursday, December 18, starting with WCC and then continuing at the main campus.

Please note: We want folks to come during the judging hours as some of the entrants will have refreshments and an “experience/presentation” that we know people will enjoy.

Thank you!

We hope to see you then!

Davis Jenkins Delivering Keynote for Celebrate Learning

Davis Jenkins has been invited to deliver the keynote address for Celebrate Learning on January 8 at 12:30 p.m. in White Auditorium.  Jenkins is a senior research associate at the Community College Research Center at Columbia University’s Teachers College.

Jenkins has been invited by the College Cabinet as part of NWACC’s efforts to launch the Guided Pathways Project, beginning with a broader discussion on the major challenges and opportunities facing colleges and universities including NWACC.  The Guided Pathways Project borrows best practices from Complete College America and other similar initiatives sponsored the Lumina Foundation and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Jenkins works with colleges and states to find ways to improve educational and employment outcomes for students, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Davis’ expertise has influenced new approaches to improving student outcomes, including career pathways, adult technical bridge programs (such as Washington State’s I-BEST), and guided pathways to success (GPS). His recent papers include “Get with the Program…and Finish It: Strategies for Accelerating Community College Students’ Entry into and Completion of Programs of Study” (with Sung-Woo Cho). Together with Thomas Bailey and Shanna Jaggars, he co-authored Redesigning America’s Colleges: A Clearer Path to Student Success, which is based on CCRC’s research on redesigning community colleges to improve student success (to be published in early 2015, Harvard University Press).  Davis has over 30 years of experience in higher education and employment in the United States and abroad. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Religion from Princeton University and Ph.D. in Public Policy Analysis from Carnegie Mellon University.

Jenkins will also be meeting with the NWACC Guided Pathways Steering Committee and other faculty and staff while he is on the NWACC Campus.  Two other sessions during Celebrate Learning will be led by NWACC faculty and staff and introduce particular challenges and opportunities to improve our alignment of students’ career goals with more clearly defined academic pathways.

Jenkins works with colleges and states to find ways to improve educational and employment outcomes for students, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Davis’ expertise has influenced new approaches to improving student outcomes, including career pathways, adult technical bridge programs (such as Washington State’s I-BEST), and guided pathways to success (GPS). His recent papers include “Get with the Program…and Finish It: Strategies for Accelerating Community College Students’ Entry into and Completion of Programs of Study” (with Sung-Woo Cho). Together with Thomas Bailey and Shanna Jaggars, he co-authored Redesigning America’s Colleges: A Clearer Path to Student Success, which is based on CCRC’s research on redesigning community colleges to improve student success (to be published in early 2015, Harvard University Press).  Davis has over 30 years of experience in higher education and employment in the United States and abroad. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Religion from Princeton University and Ph.D. in Public Policy Analysis from Carnegie Mellon University.

Jenkins will also be meeting with the NWACC Guided Pathways Steering Committee and other faculty and staff while he is on the NWACC Campus.  Two other sessions during Celebrate Learning will be led by NWACC faculty and staff and introduce particular challenges and opportunities to improve our alignment of students’ career goals with more clearly defined academic pathways.
