Presidents’ Issue New Report on Granting Baccalaureate Degrees for Various Fields Feb 5, 2015 4:17 PM
Illinois Council of Community College Presidents NORMAL Illinois community college presidents approved a recommendation urging the community college system be allowed to grant four-year baccalaureate degrees for nursing and other applied career areas at their meeting on Friday, January 30. “This recommendation, which took nearly one year to study and prepare, shows our community colleges can be the place where students can earn the degrees close to home which is important to their families and communities,” said Thomas Choice, the president of the Illinois Council of Community College Presidents. The study recommends community colleges be authorized to grant four-year degrees for applied careers and nursing degrees. Illinois would join 21 others states already offering these four-year degrees. Illinois officials have discussed the concept and experiences for families in other states for several years. “Our study indicates many employers across the state need a workforce with a higher level of education. Community colleges are uniquely positioned with their strong industry and workforce relationships to provide these programs” said Carl Sandberg College President Lori Sundberg. Sundberg chaired the committee that wrote the report. The Council will work with the Illinois Community College Trustees Association, the Illinois Community College Board, the Illinois Board of Higher Education and the legislature to ensure the necessary steps to move forward. Choice, who is president of Kishwaukee College in Malta Illinois, noted the report recommends the addition of these programs be managed without any additional state funding. It is anticipated that the variable tuition program already used by many community colleges for career and technical degrees would be used for these four-year degrees. The applied baccalaureate degrees would cover fields like automotive, respiratory therapy and dental hygiene among others.

College of DuPage Reaches Historic Headcount and FTE Spring Enrollment Feb 5, 2015 4:19 PM
Continuing to buck regional and national trends, College of DuPage has recorded its highest-ever spring Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) and total credit headcount enrollment in the College’s 48-year history. The College’s net 10th day FTE is 15,952, up 2.1 percent over last spring. In addition, the College’s net credit headcount (full- and part-time students) is 29,108, up 3.6 percent compared to spring 2014 semester. “These numbers speak volumes,” said COD President Dr. Robert L. Breuder. “College of DuPage employees have accomplished an impressive number of achievements over the past six years, which has resulted in a continued upward enrollment trend in the face of state and national decreases.” Last month, College of DuPage was named the fastest-growing community college in the nation outside of California by Community College Week in a study with data gathered by the U.S. Department of Education. In addition, a recent report from the Illinois Community College Board noted that of the 39 community college districts in Illinois, College of DuPage is the only district to grow Full-Time Equivalent enrollment over the past five years. “At a time when an educational return on investment is more important than ever, we have maintained a pulse on local, state and national workforce trends to offer students solid programming options that result in high-paying jobs and promotions through increased credentials,” Dr. Breuder said. “We have differentiated ourselves through our programs, faculty, facilities and innovation. This historic enrollment substantiates our hard work.” Over the past six years, the College has implemented nearly 70 new ICCB-approved certificates and degrees, has significantly strengthened its financial position and recently completed $550 million in campus improvements. In addition, the College has created new programming with six partner universities to offer 12 bachelor degrees on COD’s campus through its 3+1 program, has increased fundraising from $1.2 million a few years ago to more than $5 million last year, and continues to spearhead the issue of two-year colleges offering specialized baccalaureate degrees. “The value College of DuPage provides students and the community is unquestionable,” said COD Chairman Erin Birt. “We continue to differentiate ourselves by offering innovative, timely, accessible and affordable programming. Through hard work and strategic planning, we are realizing our vision of becoming the primary college district residents choose for high quality education.” Among the state’s public colleges and universities, College of DuPage, with more than 28,000 students, is the second largest provider of undergraduate education in the State of Illinois, after University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. For more information, please call Joe Moore, Vice President of Marketing and Communications, at (630) 991-6557 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

American Litho Hockey Dads Coach & Cheer Next Generation Feb 2, 2015 4:41 PM
Walk into a conference room at American Litho in Carol Stream, Illinois and you’re just as likely to hear a breakdown of last night’s Hawks game as a discussion of what’s on the presses today. Several of the company’s executives and sales staff played competitive hockey in their younger days and now spend hours at local rinks coaching and cheering on the next generation. ALitho President Mike Fontana, who played for Addison Trail High School and his college team, now coaches his son, Michael, who plays for the Chicago Blues U-18 youth squad. The Blues recently blew away the rival St. Charles Cyclones at the Fox Valley Invitational Tournament, Fontana reports. Fontana’s colleague and company co-founder Chris Joyaux laced on his first pair of skates at age 5. A youth hockey standout, Joyaux skated for Lake Park High School in Roselle. He now coaches the U-12 Chicago Bruins – that is, when he and his wife, Juanita, aren’t watching their three sons play in college and USHL games. Christopher Joyaux, the oldest, skates for the RedHawks of Miami University (Ohio). His brother, Matt, is currently with the USHL Omaha Lancers and has just committed to play as a junior for Colorado College next year. The youngest, Michael, a student at Lake Park High School, plays for the USHL Chicago Steel. Two years ago, Matt joined the British Columbia Hockey League team in Powell River, B.C. The Powell River Kings are sponsored by Catalyst Paper, a local business. When Chris and Juanita visited Powell River, they fell in love with the area. Chris toured the Catalyst mill and discovered that the company made quality paper stocks ALitho customers might favor for their commercial printing projects. Since then, ALitho has purchased more than $400,000 in stock from Catalyst. Another ALitho hockey dad is Sam Dentino of Bloomingdale, whose sons have both skated in youth leagues. “It feels like I’ve spent most of my life at the rink,” Dentino says with a laugh. He began skating at age 5 in Burr Ridge, going on to play in youth rat and men’s hockey leagues from his teens into his 30s. His youngest son, Joey, 14, attends Westfield Middle School and plays goalie for the Chicago Bruins youth team. “Joey works hard and I’m really proud of him because as you move up, it takes more and more energy to balance school and athletics. But he’s proving he can handle it all and play like a champion.” Joey’s older brother, Sammy, who played until age 14, attends Lake Park High School. “He is totally focused on his academics now, with the goal of attending a top-ranked university,” says Dentino. ALitho’s love of hockey will play into the company’s community outreach campaign for 2015, says Mike Fontana. “We recently announced our goal to raise at least $20,000 for the American Cancer Society this year,” he says, “and one of our ideas is to host a skating party right at the start of the youth hockey season in August. We hope to invite other businesses from the St. Charles, Bloomingdale and Carol Stream area to join us.” American Litho (www.alitho.com) is one of the area’s fastest-growing employers, with a staff of over 300 at its Carol Stream, Illinois plant and a sales-service team supporting customers in the Detroit area. The company provides a full range of commercial printing, direct marketing, warehousing, postal logistics, data management and digital marketing services for major brands across the U.S.
St. Charles man co-chairs corporate team to benefit American Cancer Society Feb 2, 2015 10:13 PM
St. Charles resident Joe Bulgarelli will co-chair a workplace team supporting the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Carol Stream. Bulgarelli’s employer, American Litho of Carol Stream, has launched a year-long campaign to fight cancer, pledging to raise $20,000 in support of ACS. “Relay will be a major part of our company goal, so we’re getting started with kick-off events next month,” says Bulgarelli, a sales executive with ALitho since 2001.
