1 Annual Report 2013 Celebrating student success

2 From the College President Greetings: Inver Hills moves through its 43rd year proud of a lustrous past and anticipating a bright future. At a time when colleges around the country are seeing significant drops in enrollment, IHCC has increased the number of our full-time students. That growth indicates how students are more committed to their education and more aware of the financial implications of delaying the completion of their degrees. As part of our shared commitment, we obtained funding from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services that provides a 3 to 1 tuition match when students contribute up to $960 of their own funds toward their education. We are administering a $1 million Assets for Independence grant on this effort for six community and technical colleges in Minnesota. Recognizing the needs of our students, we invested nearly $2 million in a beautiful renovation of the college library. Despite ever-changing technology, the library remains a constant in the lives of our students part social center, part academic refuge. We added enclosed group study spaces with whiteboards, dry-erase walls and furniture that fit the bring your own device lifestyles of our students. The flow and layout of the library itself was redesigned in collaboration with our college librarians. Making sure we are operating with the most current technology is a priority for our college. We regularly examine the role technology plays in education, the overall lives of our students and customer training needs. One academic area where cutting-edge tech is truly an everyday imperative is Information Technology. Under the leadership of Dr. Ben Franske, an IT instructor, and Dr. Kevin Gyolai, dean of STEM, our students obtain real-world experience essential for employability in the critical field of cybersecurity. Thanks to an exemplary cybersecurity program, IHCC is one of approximately 30 community colleges in the U.S. designated by the Department of Homeland Security as a Center of Academic Excellence. MnSCU also included our cybersecurity program as part of its own Center of Academic Excellence. Another high point is our college s relationship with veterans. In November, Military Times Best for Vets: Colleges 2014 for Two-Year Schools ranked Inver Hills number three in the nation and number one in Minnesota. Academic rigor was emphasized when Military Times conducted and scored the fourth-annual Best for Vets: Colleges Survey, a highly respected 150-question analysis of a college s complete offerings for veterans. This prestigious ranking is a salute to the great work of our staff and faculty in making IHCC a vet-friendly college. We also continue finding new ways to connect with potential students. In late fall, the new Dakota County-Burnsville WorkForce Center opened in Burnsville. Inver Hills and Metropolitan State University are sharing space in the WorkForce Center as part of a new partnership with higher education in the city. The arrangement is the only one of its kind not on a college campus, but at a WorkForce Center, where thousands of visitors arrive each month seeking career and employment assistance. This partnership represents our strongest presence to date in the southwestern suburbs where no other higher education entity is located. Finally, I want to mention the continued partnership between our Psychology department and the Psychology department at Metropolitan State University. We have a 2+2 program and share in the responsibility for the Interdisciplinary Community Garden on the Inver Hills campus. In early October, Inver s Dr. Barbara Curchack and students from both institutions traveled to Newtown, Conn., to plant 30 trees at the town s public Victory Garden to honor the memories of the children and adults killed during the December 2012 mass shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. This partnership demonstrates one more way our college touches lives. I hope you enjoy the magazine. Thank you for your support of our students.

4 John H. Thill Scholarship Provides grants to veterans and their families When Shirley Thill heard about Inver Hills Community College s Maps to Credentials program a collaborative effort to help veterans get college credits for the work they do in the military she immediately knew the best way to honor her recently deceased husband, who served in the Army during the Korean War, was to endow a scholarship in his name. Starting spring semester 2014, the John H. Thill Scholarship will provide grants for veterans, their spouses and their children. I know that the government is cutting some veterans benefits, Thill said. I just want the men and women who serve our country to know they are not forgotten. Education was always very important to the Thills. John had already finished a college degree when he volunteered to join the Army in the early 1950s. He spent three years doing clerical work in Austria before returning to the University of Wisconsin for law school. Shirley worked for over a decade as an elementary school teacher in Illinois and Iowa before moving to Minnesota to raise her family. After earning his J.D., John moved to St. Paul to work at West Publishing. He took a break to practice law in La Crosse, Wis., but returned to his old job at West after a short time. They told him if he ever wanted to come back, the door was always open, Shirley said. The couple met at the First Christian Church in St. Paul and were married in 1987, the second marriage for both. Having worked his way up to associate editor at West, John had an office overlooking the Mississippi River in downtown St. Paul. Shirley remembered that he very much loved the view. When West relocated to its new Eagan campus late in his career, John spent six months in what he called the cornfield before retiring. This is it, Shirley recalled John saying. I m hanging it up. He passed away on Valentine s Day Besides memorializing her husband s legacy, Shirley intends for the scholarship to honor and recognize the work of two of her children. Her son, John Mark Holland, has spent 18 years in the Marines. Her daughter, Anne Johnson, is the current interim associate vice president 4 Report to the Community 2013 inverhills.edu

Anne helped put together and run the Maps to Credentials project over the past two years. I know that IHCC is doing special things for veterans, Shirley Thill said. In a small way, the scholarship in John s name will help the school continue that good work.

6 Tori Bigginton Writes Education into the Equation Math major plans to earn Ph.D. in physics After reading a few books on theoretical physics by Stephen Hawking while in high school, Tori Bigginton was determined to study math and physics at the University of California, Berkeley, where her parents had met. Her life took a detour when she got married and had five children. Working in Oregon as a massage therapist, she unexpectedly found herself playing the difficult role of single mom with sole custody. Although I had twelve years of experience in massage therapy and was working six days a week at some points, I really struggled to make a living, Bigginton said. So I had a choice, burn out physically in that occupation due to repetitive-use injuries, or to go back to school and do what I intended to do before I had my family. On arriving in Minnesota, Bigginton originally decided to attend Inver Hills Community College because its campus was close to her home. But after being here two years, I have come to find out Inver was an excellent choice, she said. The instructors are excellent and the cost is reasonable. Bigginton is currently studying to earn an A.A. with an Emphasis in Mathematics. She plans to transfer to the University of Minnesota, where she hopes to earn a doctorate in physics. I like teaching, she said, and will probably teach at the college level as well as do research in theoretical and quantum physics, perhaps looking for possible applications in alternative energy sources. As a balance to her physics and calculus coursework, Bigginton has enjoyed taking music classes at Inver Hills. I can t say enough good things about the music department, and especially Dr. Stan Rothrock, she said. Rothrock, who teaches choir, and Andrew Martin, who teaches African drumming, helped Bigginton compose her own music. I m putting out a CD of original compositions, she said. Finding my musical side again was an unexpected bonus that came with taking transfer curriculum classes. There is a lot to be said for personal enrichment gained from diversifying your course of study. Bigginton is so satisfied with Inver Hills that three of her sons are attending the college as well, one as a PSEO student. Two of them plan to follow their mother into physics and engineering. Inver Hills has been excellent because of the level of instruction and the one-on-one availability of the instructors, Bigginton said. You not only get a lower student-to-teacher ratio, but quite often you 6 Report to the Community 2013 inverhills.edu

7 Torri Bigginton have instructors with much more experience than the teaching assistants you will find at the undergraduate levels in a larger institution all without the high prices. And I can even find places to park! Bigginton is pleased that she can do a large part of her undergraduate work at Inver Hills before transferring. She is also very grateful for the grants she has received from the Inver Hills Foundation, including a scholarship named after Ron Wiger, a former speech instructor, along with a Goodrich Veterans Scholarship, STEM Scholarship, Breakthrough 3M Scholarship and John Thill Scholarship. As a single mother and full-time student, these scholarships have allowed me to make ends meet and focus more on school, Bigginton said. I know full well the difficulties in trying to raise children, work full-time and go to school full-time. In that equation, something has to give. Fortunately, Inver Hills Community College has given Tori Bigginton a different equation to achieve her goals as a math major. inverhills.edu Report to the Community

8 LADR Program Off to a Promising Start High school students ramp up their college-readiness quotients The Leading and Developing Readiness program, better known as LADR, at Inver Hills Community College focuses on high school students in the academic middle, students who historically receive the least amount of guidance and encouragement regarding life after high school specifically the possibility of life on a college campus. Funded by a grant from The Saint Paul Foundation, the F. R. Bigelow Foundation, the Mardag Foundation, the Simley High School National Honor Society, and an anonymous individual donor, LADR is designed to boost the collegiate expectations of high school students and, when they rise to the challenge, give them the tools and support they need to excel at the college or university of their choice. LADR at Inver Hills has evolved into two distinct components, Inver Prep, a developmental education program that helps high school students in the academic middle prepare for college, and InCollege, a concurrent enrollment program that allows high school students to earn college and high school credits simultaneously from their high school classrooms. Centered on language arts and mathematics tracks, LADR dovetails into Minnesota s statewide plan to improve the college-readiness quotient of high school students. In a 2012 article in the Pioneer Press, Christopher Magan reported that roughly 40 percent of students who attend college in Minnesota require at least one developmental education course. That s an increase from 33 percent from 10 years ago. Remedial coursework costs students and taxpayers nearly $2 billion annually and students receive no college credit for their efforts. That decline in college readiness prompted Steven Rosenstone, MnSCU chancellor, Brenda Cassellius, Minnesota education commissioner, and Larry Pogemiller, director of the state office of higher education, to collaborate on a framework that spells out ways to better assess student skills, provide earlier intervention strategies to improve college preparedness, and create enhanced opportunities for prepared students to earn college credit while still in high school. LADR hits the mark on all counts. The LADR program at Inver Hills is off to a great beginning, said IHCC President Tim Wynes, J.D. Our faculty are working closely with high school instructors to build stronger relationships between our institutions. The more we know about the issues that challenge high schools and affect the progress of high school students, the better we are at providing access to an extraordinary education to everyone in our communities. Another positive result of LADR is getting high school students more familiar with life on a college campus. During 2013, LADR students made a number of visits to the IHCC campus, where they directly experienced the culture and geography of a busy college community. 8 Report to the Community 2013 inverhills.edu

9 InCollege course, English The following semester, eighty-three percent of the same group of students earned a grade of C or better in English Not only did the Burnsville students earn eight college credits, they also demonstrated the ability to stay with the program and improve their success rate as a group. Campus visits ensure that students are not intimidated by an unfamiliar environment when they make the transition from high school to college. The students also become acquainted with college professors, who, like their high school counterparts, care deeply about student success. All Inver Prep and InCollege classes are free to the participants. Aligned with the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum, InCollege credits are guaranteed for acceptance at all MnSCU colleges and universities, and most of the state s private institutions. Gail Morrison, executive director of the Inver Hills Foundation, underscored the early success of InCollege. Because IHCC started a pilot Inver Prep program before the LADR grant, forty-three students from Burnsville High School were already in the pipeline and prepared to take InCollege concurrent enrollment courses during the first year of the grant period, Morrison said. Seventy-nine percent of those students earned a grade of C or better in their first-semester More than 400 high school students are currently enrolled in the LADR program. The goal is to have 600 students by spring Through LADR, Inver Hills has partnered with Burnsville, Rosemount, and Simley high schools as well as the AGAPE Alternative Learning Center. Future partners include Randolph, South St. Paul, Lakeville North, Lakeville South, Prior Lake, North, and Tartan high schools as well as STEP Academy. Kim Elvecrog is an IHCC reading instructor who works with high school instructors at Simley and Rosemount high schools. Elvecrog reported making personal connections with high school students who previously had no tangible means to consider themselves bound for college. LADR gives these students an opportunity to prepare for college in a very direct and meaningful way, Elvecrog said. Many students have experienced a shift in their long-term goals. The relationships I ve developed with the high school teachers have been positive for all of us. I ve helped them adapt their curricula to better prepare their students for collegelevel reading and writing. Together, we ve created a link between K 12 and higher education. inverhills.edu Report to the Community

10 Inver Hills Hosting Cyber Aces State Championship Thanks to one of the best cybersecurity programs in the country In 2011, the Network Technology and Security program at Inver Hills Community College was designated a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance for Two-Year Colleges by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to recognize the program s cybersecurity curriculum. Inver Hills has leveraged that national honor by becoming one of seven sites across the nation to host a Cyber Aces State Championship. Cyber Aces is a national organization with the mission to help young people with a high aptitude for information technology to develop their talent and make a major contribution to the physical and economic security of the United States. The top 10 percent of Minnesota participants taking free Cyber Aces Online courses will be invited to the Inver Hills campus Saturday, March 15, 2014, for the state championship. The cyber standouts will then compete in NetWars, a cyberdefense simulation competition government agencies, the U.S. military and private corporations use to test and train the best cyber talent in the nation. NetWars is an interactive learning environment elite, real-world and hands-on that focuses on the skills and protocols information security professionals exercise on a daily basis. This is a great opportunity to introduce students to the world of cybersecurity, said Kevin Gyolai, dean of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) at Inver Hills. We are also using the competition as a way to celebrate that we have one of the best two-year cybersecurity programs in the country. Inver Hills and the Network Technology and Security program also belong to a grant-funded Center of Excellence recognized by Minnesota State Colleges and Universities. Inver Hills earned this national and system recognition for exemplary cybersecurity education due in part to its work with Cisco Systems to offer an Advanced Network Security certificate. In fact, Inver Hills is one of only a handful of authorized Cisco Instructor Training Centers in the U.S. Recently, authorities on the national level have realized that anyone working with computers is part of this nation s cybersecurity team, Gyolai said, and the job prospects for students who get industry certificates are very good. For example, outgoing DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano estimated early in 2013 that her department needed at least 600 cybersecurity recruits to defend against potential cyberattacks aimed at the country s financial networks and infrastructure. To lure defensive hackers, Alan Paller, founder of the SANS Institute, a nonprofit computer security training organization, created the Cyber Aces. In a recent New York Times article, Paller likened the current demand for cyberwarriors to the need for fighter pilots during World War II. No experience in IT or cybersecurity is required for participation in Cyber Aces. High school and college students, jobseekers and active-duty military personnel as well as high school teachers and administrators 10 Report to the Community 2013 inverhills.edu

11 are encouraged to register for Cyber Aces Online courses for the chance to compete in the Cyber Aces Championships. In addition to Cyber Aces, IHCC will be promoting the college s Advanced Network Security Certificate program by offering scholarships of up to $1,000 to high school students who have taken Cisco Networking Academy classes, thanks to a $10,000 grant from Xcel Energy. Beginning January 2014, both full- and parttime students who enroll in any of Inver Hill s Information Technology (IT) programs will be eligible. These scholarships will help students fund their dream to be on the front lines of cybersecurity, said Gyolai, who added that some high school students who pick up industry certificates at a Cisco Networking Academy might be ready for entry-level jobs. But to get a good-paying job, they need further education. With the help of the scholarships, Inver Hills has created a clear pathway from high school to college for students pursuing a career in IT. If you are interested in the IT scholarship, please visit the Inver Hills Foundation at foundation, click on Scholarships in the left-side menu and then open the Scholarship Application Form. Be sure to mention your participation in Cisco Networking Academy in the Narrative section of the application.

13 Our 2013 Outstanding Alumni Bruce Nelson Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union Solutions Member Advisor. Bruce Nelson was earning big bucks as a studio and touring musician for such legendary rock bands as REO Speedwagon, Cheap Trick and Heart, but when he attended Inver Hills Community College part-time from 1987 to 1991, no one knew about his second life as a guitar hero. Nelson studied music and business at Inver Hills and was eventually awarded an associate s degree. He then transferred to Augsburg College, where he majored in music and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. After retiring as a professional musician in 1994, Nelson stumbled into banking when a friend got him a job in finance. He parlayed that job into a stint with First American Bank, which later changed its name to Bremer Bank. For the past decade, he has worked at Affinity Plus and is currently a solutions member advisor. I was not the best student when I attended Inver Hills, Nelson remembered, but I had some great instructors who gave me the skill sets that transformed me into who I am today. Nelson specifically recalled his college mentors, including English Instructor Jon Fagerson, who used one of Nelson s essays in a book of student work. He made me think about who I was, Nelson said. Other favorite instructors were Rusty Mitchell, who taught in the Business department, and Joe Balsanek, a retired speech teacher. Professor Balsanek gave me the basics I needed to testify in front of Congress about the housing crisis, Nelson said. When he s not advocating for affordable housing in Washington, D.C., and helping credit union members with financial challenges, Nelson volunteers to direct youth music ensembles and coach sports teams. I got more from Inver Hills than from all the rest of my education since then, Nelson concluded. With everything Inver Hills has done for me, I knew it was my destiny to give back. Tom Smith St. Paul Police Department Chief of Police. Congresswoman Betty McCollum, former Inver Hills Community College Outstanding Alumna, and St. Paul Police Chief Tom Smith, current Outstanding Alumnus, were two of 300 guests at the August swearing-in ceremony for the new director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives at the agency s headquarters in Washington, D.C. Chief Smith and Congresswoman McCollum talked at the event, but the fact that both attended Inver Hills didn t come up. Believe me, the next time, it will, Smith said. Smith, who has spent 25 years with the St. Paul Police Department, is happy to be a champion of the school. I had a great experience at Inver Hills, he said. I am very proud to tell people I went here. In 1976, Smith came to Inver Hills to study, but mostly to play football. He remembers people like Bo Johnson, current director of recreational sports at the college, and Randy Rodgers, who coached football at Inver Hills for five years in the 1970s. We went from 0 8 one year to a nationally ranked team the next year, Smith recalled. Smith s future wife also attended Inver Hills as well as his future brother-inlaw. After earning an A.A., Smith came back to Inver Hills in the 1980s in hopes of becoming a police officer. He earned a second degree from the school, an A.S. in Law Enforcement. He went on to graduate with a B.A. in Marketing from Metropolitan State University and then was awarded a Master of Arts in Education Leadership from the University of St. Thomas. He became chief of the St. Paul Police Department in June With all he has accomplished, Smith feels that Inver Hills was a great place to start his postsecondary career. The college set the tone for me, he said, and for that, I will always be grateful. inverhills.edu Report to the Community
