State Plan for Alabama Higher Education                   Calhoun Community College


The mission of Calhoun Community College is to “ensure student success and
promote community development and cultural enrichment.” Currently serving
almost 9,000 students, the College meets this mission through providing quality
programs and services through its two main campuses in Decatur and Huntsville
and two sites at Redstone Arsenal and Limestone Correctional Facility. The
College’s service area includes parts of Madison, Morgan, Limestone, and
Lawrence counties in north central Alabama. Calhoun is committed to the
implementation of the State Plan for Higher Education adopted by the Alabama
Commission on Higher Education and seeks to accomplish each of the five goals
through exemplary practices. A description of some of the College’s current
activities supporting these goals is provided.

GOAL 1: ACCESS

Calhoun is the largest for-credit two-year institution in Alabama and is a major
provider of postsecondary education in the north Alabama region. Through its
open admissions policy, Calhoun promotes access to all constituents through
innovative programs in distance education, financial aid, adult education,
industry-responsive credit and non-credit programs, convenient scheduling,
affordable tuition, web-based programs and services, and its own cable television
station. The College recently received a five-year Title III grant which increases
student access to “virtual student services.” Virtual services such as online
degree audit, online transfer of transcripts, and online financial aid functions will
allow students to access these services from distant locations. During fall 2005
registration, 2891 students used the WebAdvisor system for online course
registration. The College’s distance education program provides remote access
to educational programs and has grown 40 percent in the last five years. The
program currently offers 100 different courses in distance education format. In
addition, students can pursue any one of five degree programs entirely online.
An educational television station, 4CTV, is operated by the College and is
broadcast by two cable companies in the College’s service area. This TV station
offers educational programs and provides information about campus activities to
the community. In recent years, the Hispanic population in the North Alabama
area has increased significantly. This special population is served through a
Spanish version of the College’s website and through adult education and ESL
classes. Calhoun has experienced a 41 percent increase in Hispanic student
enrollment between 1999 and 2004. Calhoun also encourages community
involvement with the College through hosting a variety of meetings, conferences,
educational activities, festivals, cultural events, and other activities. In 2004-05,
approximately 45 such events were hosted at the College.

GOAL 2: COOPERATION

Calhoun engages in cooperative efforts with local high schools, businesses,
government agencies, and other two-year and four-year institutions across the
state. The College has recently received two large Department of Labor Grants
that include cooperative efforts with several state and local agencies. A $3.5
million award to establish a Center for Manufacturing Innovation was announced
                                          2

in June 2005 and includes partnerships with the state of Alabama, Manufacture
Alabama, the Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education, the Alabama
Technology Network, Drake State Technical College, Snead State Community
College, Northeast Community College, and area Chambers of Commerce. A
$2.4 million award for a project AHEAD (Alternate Health Education
Asynchronous Delivery) grant includes partnerships with Central Alabama
Community College, Southern Union Community College, five area hospitals,
three K-12 school systems, and Lanier Health Services. As a partner in a
consortium of 16 colleges in the ACETEA (Alabama Colleges for
Electrical/Mechanical Technology Education) project, Calhoun is able to provide
up to 40,000 Kuder career assessments to area high school students and
incoming freshmen at no charge. The Allied Health Department participates in
numerous activities involving children enrolled in elementary schools in the area.
Nursing students have provided health screening for all Headstart children in
Morgan County and approximately 1300 first graders participated in the March
2005 “Let’s Pretend Hospital” which allows children to experience what being a
patient in a hospital is like. The Allied Health Department also partners with
approximately 22 area hospitals and health agencies to allow Calhoun students
to fulfill the clinical component of nursing education in area hospitals and health
agencies. Calhoun nursing students also participate in clinical rotations with the
Community Free Clinic of Decatur/Morgan County. Cooperation with K-12
systems is exemplified through a strong Tech Prep program involving 16 area
school systems. Over 100 articulation agreements with 17 high schools are in
place to prevent duplication of programs and courses for students transitioning
from high school to college. Calhoun’s Dual Enrollment/ECEP program served
701 local high school students during the fall 2005 semester. While some dually
enrolled students attended classes on Calhoun’s campuses, dual enrollment
instruction was also provided on 14 area high school campuses. Calhoun
faculty are also actively involved in cooperative efforts of the College. The
Humanities Division provided over 450 cultural opportunities during 2004-05 for
the community, including plays, a Writer’s Conference, and community readings.
Dr. Randy Cross, an English faculty member, participated in the Alabama
SUPER program, which allows collaborative workshops between college and
high school teachers. Calhoun is also committed to cooperative efforts with
constituents and businesses with special requirements. For instance, the
College is currently cooperating with Nucor Steel to allow workers on rotating 12-
hour shifts to pursue college degrees by customizing a flexible schedule to allow
Nucor employees to take classes on their rotating days off. Calhoun also offers
CIS classes customized to the needs of senior citizens. During 2004-05, the
College provided tuition-free CIS instruction to 76 senior citizens.

GOAL 3: QUALITY

As part of its mission, Calhoun provides quality, innovative instruction that
promotes lifelong learning for all its students. Creating a supportive, responsive
learning environment that fosters improvement is paramount to achieving this
mission. The College employs a well-qualified staff of 126 full-time faculty—27 of
which hold a Doctorate degree and 79 of which hold a Master’s degree. The
                                          3

College is also fortunate to employ a well-qualified pool of adjunct faculty. Of the
301 active adjunct faculty currently teaching, 33 hold a Doctorate degree and 225
hold a Master’s degree. The College is accredited by the Southern Association
of Colleges and Schools, with accreditation reaffirmed in 2001. In addition, the
College has 22 degree programs with specialized accreditations in their program
areas. These specialized accreditations include ACBSP, HVAC Excellence,
ADA, NAEYC, NLNAC, ADA, ARC-ST, CoAEMSP, and American Design
Drafting. Calhoun students are recognized nationally through the USA Today
Top Two-Year College Students in the Nation competition. Since 1989, Calhoun
has placed an unprecedented six students on the first- or second-team of the All-
USA College Academic Team. Calhoun also had five first- place winners in the
statewide 2005 Art Exhibition—including one best-of-show. Calhoun’s faculty is
also recognized for outstanding teaching. In November 2005, Brenda Hall was
named Alabama’s Outstanding Adult Education Instructor at the Alabama
College Association meeting. Area businesses recognize Calhoun’s quality
education by employing Calhoun graduates. For example, the allied health
programs enjoy virtually 100 percent placement rate among its graduates
seeking employment. In addition, the College’s 2004-05 Perkins Report shows
that 85% of full completers are either employed in an occupation related to their
education or are continuing their education in a related field. Quality instruction
is also enhanced by the College’s Title III grant, which supports redesigning 38
large enrollment courses to include more technology use in the classroom and
increased interaction between faculty and students. Calhoun’s Planning Council
ensures internal quality audits are conducted each semester through its Plan for
Student Success, which measures over 40 quality indicators of student success.
Included in these quality indicators are items such as the percent of student
success in developmental courses, performance on the Noel-Levitz Student
Satisfaction Survey, and retention rates. The statewide College Accountability
and Performance Profile requires Calhoun to report quantitative data on ten
performance components. In 2004-05, the College participated in the initial data
collection for CAPP and provides a representative to the committee developing
guidelines for data collection to support the CAPP project.

GOAL 4: RESOURCES

Like most colleges, Calhoun has recently experienced a decrease in the
percentage of funds received from state appropriations. In 2004-05, the College
received $2,582 per FTE in state appropriations. To augment funds appropriated
by the state, the College has aggressively pursued alternative sources of
revenue, such as grants. Currently, the College has $12,716,954 in active
federal, state, and local grant awards. A 2005 feasibility study conducted by the
Calhoun Foundation revealed the potential to raise $3 – 5 million in Foundation
contributions. Consequently, the Foundation has embarked upon a capital
campaign seeking funds to support a Health Sciences building, a Math/Sciences
building, scholarships, and campus development. In addition to seeking
alternative revenue streams, the College has instituted several initiatives to
increase efficiency in the use of existing resources. Increasing the minimum
number of students required in a class, contracting janitorial services and
                                          4

grounds maintenance, revising the Spring 05 schedule to allow students to build
a full schedule while attending classes only two days a week, and investing all
excess funds in interest-bearing accounts are a few examples of ways the
College encourages efficient use of taxpayer dollars. Calhoun is also reinvesting
in its campus facilities with a $45 renovation and building project.

GOAL 5: WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

Developing a well-qualified workforce is the foundation for most activities at
Calhoun. Our comprehensive workforce training programs include credit degree
or certificate programs aligned with industry needs, non-credit and short-term
training which can be customized for industry-specific requirements, partnerships
with business and industry which include cooperative education and
apprenticeships, and collaboration with business partners in activities such as
curriculum development, grant proposals, excellence teams, and state and
regional workforce development committees and organizations. During 2004-05,
Calhoun administered 3,390 Workkeys assessments to assist industries in
determining skill mastery and deficiencies in their employees. During the same
year, Calhoun’s Business and Industry Services Division delivered 334 training
events that served over 2,000 individuals in over 38 different companies in the
north Alabama area. Calhoun employees support workforce development by
participating in numerous workforce development organizations across the state
and nation. Calhoun is the host member for the North Alabama Workforce
Development Partnership. Calhoun’s President serves on the Boards of
Directors for the Morgan County Economic Development Association and the
Decatur-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce. The President also serves on
the advisory committee for the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce. Through
SpaceTEC Calhoun serves as one of 12 member colleges participating in a
national consortium to incorporate innovative technological dimensions into
aerospace programs. To allow students and industry employees to document
mastery of skills, the College offers certification testing in a number of areas
including Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE), Microsoft Certified
Systems Administrator (MCSA), Plumbing Code Certification, American Society
of Quality Certification, National Institute for Metal Working Skills (NIMS), and
others. The College’s two Department of Labor grants, one for establishing a
Center for Manufacturing Innovation and one to provide training in allied health
careers, allow the College to leverage about $6M to provide training to support
economic development needs in our area. The Center for Manufacturing
Innovation provides modularized curriculum in advanced manufacturing
processes that allow students multiple entry and exit points. Each of the
College’s AAS programs of study has active advisory teams comprised of
industry experts who help ensure the College’s curriculum meets current industry
demands. These workforce development activities, as well as others, allow
Calhoun to be a primary contributor to economic and workforce development in
our region and state.
