    Currently more than 6,800 students turn to CCRI in their pursuit of a brighter future. They
    come from high schools, the workforce or other colleges, with different dreams, goals and
    educational backgrounds.Yet at CCRI they all find a home—a place where their unique needs
    are understood and supported. Our exceptional faculty and staff often work one-on-one with
    students, encouraging them to reach beyond what they had hoped.
    With more than 80 programs of study to choose from, students can explore their career
    interests and become scientists, teachers, occupational therapists, laboratory clinicians,
    engineers, computer programmers, police officers, artists, business professionals, and more.
    In fact, chances are many of the people you depend upon every day have benefited from the
    Community College of Rhode Island.
    Each year, more than 1,200 Rhode Islanders graduate from CCRI and thousands more come to
    the college to transfer or to take a course or two as part of their lifelong learning endeavors. As
    of May 2006, our graduates total nearly 52,000, most of them living and working in this state.
    Many of our graduates also choose to continue their education by transferring to other
    schools. Of the 80.1 percent of the Class of 006 responding to the survey, 94.7 percent are
    either employed, continuing their education or a combination of both; 27.2 percent indicated
    they were attending school full time and another 4.1 percent part time. In fact, many students
    transfer before completing a degree at CCRI. In 006, 887 students transferred to the
    University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College. Also, many more transferred to colleges
    across the country.
    Established in 964 to give all Rhode Islanders an opportunity to achieve their educational
    goals, CCRI remains committed to helping every student succeed. The college serves recent
    high school graduates, older adults looking for a new career, recent immigrants, and businesses
    looking to give their employees the training they need to remain competitive in a global
    economy. This report gives an overview of their successes, and paints a picture of the variety of
    endeavors made possible with a CCRI education.

About this report...
Since the Career Placement and Graduate Transfer Report is based on a self-report survey,
some caution in interpretation is suggested. In reviewing the information, please be advised
that average salaries, based on a 40-hour week, are reported only for education-related
employment and may show an unexpectedly broad range due to data collected from
graduates in entry-level positions and professionally employed graduates who attended
CCRI for further professional development.
The overall results from this year’s survey again validate, as have all reports since 1985,
CCRI’s success in preparing graduates for further education as well as for jobs in the
Rhode Island economy.

the tRue measuRe of CCRI’s suCCess ...
                                       Without family financial support to attend college Jocelyn Ruby of Newport
                                       waited until she was 24 — the age at which the government considers her
                                       financially independent — to attend college. Combining financial aid with her
                                       earnings in the restaurant industry, she attended CCRI full-time.
                                       While managing both full-time school and full-time work was incredibly dif-
                                       ficult, Ruby remained focused on her goal of earning a degree, achieving a 3.89
                                       GPA. She also credits CCRI faculty with providing a support system for her
                                       success. “They encouraged me,” she says, “and they taught me that you can
                                       accomplish your goals when you aim high.” She was accepted as a transfer stu-
                                       dent to Brown University’s resumed undergraduate program and was awarded
                                       a full financial aid package.
                                       Ruby, now a senior at Brown, is studying Gender and Sexuality Studies, an
                                       interdisciplinary program. She is planning to apply to graduate school to study
                                       for a doctorate in English. “I have an interest in women’s literature and I want
                                       to teach at the university level,” she says.
                                       Ruby is not intimidated by taking the next step in her education. “I remember
                                       how daunting it was to apply to school the first time around,” she says, but
         Jocelyn Ruby                  she takes comfort in having been through the process. “It’s exciting to see the
                                       development in myself.”

Cynthia Bessette, of Cumberland, was the first graduate to complete the new Joint
Admissions Agreement (JAA) — a dual enrollment program between CCRI and either
Rhode Island College or the University of Rhode Island — last year.
Created by the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education, the JAA
program grants conditional acceptance to RIC or URI to CCRI students while they
are still earning their associate degree. The students receive dual counseling from both
CCRI and their intended four-year institution to ensure a smooth transfer as well as
tuition benefits for earning a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
“Economics was a huge factor for me when I decided to return to school,” Bessette
says. “At the time, I had one child in college and one on her way to college and the
incentive for keeping my grades up to keep my tuition costs down worked perfectly.”
Bessette, who works at a law firm, is pursuing political science and justice studies at
RIC and maintains a 4.0 GPA. She is in the process of applying to law school and her
interests lie in real estate and corporate law. She says that she was first drawn to the
JAA agreement for the economic benefits, and also praises the dual-institution coun-
seling. “It was very easy to transition to RIC,” she says. “It made my transfer almost
seamless.”                                                                                     Cynthia Bessette

                                      Joshua Vizzacco always had an inkling he wanted to be an artist, but he just
                                      didn’t feel quite ready for art school after graduating from Coventry High School.
                                      So he enrolled at CCRI and built his portfolio with work from drawing, painting
                                      and digital arts courses as he earned an associate degree in fine arts.
                                      Now a junior at the Rhode Island School of Design — his dream school — Viz-
                                      zacco is completing a grueling trimester schedule as a graphic design major. “There
                                      are things about CCRI I really miss,” he says, like the close relationships he devel-
                                      oped with faculty and fellow students, “but I left prepared for this next step.”
                                      At CCRI Vizzacco took advantage of the opportunities he had with the close-knit
                                      campus community. He helped launch an art club where students could share and
                                      critique their work and he was the Macintosh computer lab monitor. He is making
                                      waves at RISD, too, for sharing his creative talents. He won a design contest for
                                      creating the logo for Jolly Roger Café, one of the school’s eateries on South Main
                                      Street, and he was awarded a scholarship for outstanding design.
                                      “I’m in my element,” he says.

     CCRI’s primary mission is to help students succeed in reaching their educational goals by
     preparing them to enter the workforce or transfer to a four-year college or university.
     Each year the college attempts to measure its success in this regard by surveying the
     previous year’s graduates.


     This year the ,9 members of the Class of 006 were asked to provide information
     about place of employment, job title, salary and status of continuing education. Of those,
     976, or 80. percent, responded to the survey. The results indicate that, overwhelmingly,
     CCRI graduates succeeded in reaching their educational goals. In fact, more than 94 percent
     reported that they were employed, continuing their education or a combination of both.


     A total of 559 graduates reported that they are working full-time, with another 0
     employed on a part-time basis ( of those working part-time are also continuing their
     education).* Over 86 percent of graduates working either full-time or part-time are
     employed in Rhode Island.


     Also, 66 graduates are attending school full-time; 9 percent of those are continuing
     their education in Rhode Island (6.4 percent are attending Rhode Island College and 9.
     percent are studying at the University of Rhode Island). Members of the Class of 2006
     transferred to more than 50 colleges and universities.




          * Range and average salaries reported by employed graduates may vary from year to year based
          on salary levels that may have existed prior to obtaining the degree or certificate.

The Cardio-Respiratory Care program is an accredited two-year respiratory therapist program
leading to an A.A.S. degree. Respiratory care is an allied health profession in which respiratory
therapists work under the direction of a physician to evaluate, treat and care for patients with
breathing disorders. During the course of study, the student attends clinical practice at various
affiliate sites including specialty rotations in neonatal and pediatric care, pulmonary function testing,
hemodynamics, subacute/chronic care, pulmonary rehabilitation and home care. Graduates must
pass a national entry-level examination and are eligible to sit for the advanced-level credential
(RRT). Respiratory care practitioners are licensed in the State of Rhode Island and are employed
in hospitals, nursing facilities, clinics, doctors’ offices, home care companies and rehabilitation
centers.

     CCRI offers the Associate in Fine Arts degree in Art, Jazz Studies, Music and Theatre. These
     programs serve both students transferring to a four-year college or professional school and
     students who wish to pursue a career. They provide hands-on experience in the first two years
     of higher education, a strong foundation in the humanities and exposure to interdisciplinary study.
     CCRI offers the only Jazz Studies program in Rhode Island and the only theatre program which
     offers jazz, ballet and modern dance. Students in the theatre program develop skills and creativity
     in the areas of acting, musical theatre, technical theatre and communications. Visual arts students
     focus on ceramics, computer technology, graphic design and photography. Music students may
     concentrate on performance, teaching, communications, composition or the music business. The
     curriculum at CCRI is the equivalent of the freshman and sophomore years in many four-year
     bachelor’s degree programs in art or a foundation program at a design school.
