Rowan-Cabarrus Community College’s Cabarrus Business & Technology Center To Expand Offerings

New property on Concord Parkway provides room for additional technology programs

20161031_0471CWCONCORD, N.C. — Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is in the process of expanding and enhancing the offerings at its Cabarrus Business & Technology Center location on Highway 29 in Concord.

The College’s Board of Trustees had the opportunity to tour the facility and learn more about the enhancements.

Rowan-Cabarrus recently purchased the former Webster Radiator & AC shop at 723 Concord Parkway, North. This facility, directly adjacent to the Cabarrus Business & Technology Center (CBTC), gives the College both additional space, as well as frontage along the main road.

“We are so excited to be in this new location! We have the opportunity to offer programs that we’ve never been able to offer before in Cabarrus County,” said Dr. Carol S. Spalding, president of Rowan-Cabarrus.

The additional space gives the College the ability to expand in key areas such as Light Diesel Technology and Advanced Welding Technology.

“With over 230 automotive dealers and repair shops in Cabarrus County there is an increasing demand for skilled light diesel technicians. Most employers prefer applicants to have completed postsecondary training programs in diesel repair and received industry certification,” said Dr. Michael Quillen, vice president of the College’s academic programs.

Projections of the Transportation and Warehousing industry and the Wholesale Trades industry sector clearly indicate the need for this program to train almost 1,600 workers in Cabarrus County alone by 2024. Job opportunities will be best for those who have completed postsecondary training and received industry certification.

The College, in coordination with several local partners, is applying for a grant that would fund the development of these new programs. If awarded, the grant would renovate approximately 12,000 square feet of space to support Light Diesel Technology and Advanced Welding Technology programs.

The College doesn’t currently have welding in Cabarrus County, and the ability to offer advanced welding would help support local industry. Long term projections indicate an average of 320 annual openings in the need for advanced welders in North Carolina.

“Looming retirements of baby boomers employed in top employing industries like manufacturing and construction make the need for more welders even more pressing,” said Quillen.

Additionally, the College’s motorsports management technology will also move to this new location. This more visible location provides direct and easy access to the racetrack and employers.

“It is a truly prime location for this industry with several dealerships and repair shops located right along Concord Parkway. These are good employers for our students and present a variety of internship opportunities as well.”

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College also hopes to bring automotive training to Cabarrus County, as well.

“While there are key differences between traditional automotive and light diesel, there are some overlaps and shared technologies. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to offer automotive training as well,” said Quillen.

Other programs available at the CBTC location include air conditioning, ventilating, heating and refrigeration (HVAC/R), information technology, electronics engineering technology, electrical systems technology and construction management technology.

Also at the CBTC location, the College is launching a new Saturday-only degree program. Designed for working professionals who cannot take time off during the work week, this hybrid program allows students to come on campus just once a week to take classes, while completing the other coursework online on their own time.

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Revamps Information Technology Program

Award-winning digital college offers new affordable options for online and in-person classes; Specializations and expertise in information technology, including National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) cybersecurity designation

 

280CONCORD, N.C. — Rowan-Cabarrus Community College has recently revamped the Information Technology program by adding additional courses and technologies.

A few years ago, the College was a leader across the state in changing the way the information technology courses were offered and moved to an umbrella degree program. Now the rest of the state has taken the same umbrella degree approach.

“Since the College had already made many of these changes, Rowan-Cabarrus didn’t have to do a tremendous amount on our end. We also listen very closely to our advisory board, comprised of local industry representatives. They indicated that they wanted to see students with more virtualization experience so we added several virtualization courses as part of our networking specialization track,” said Zackary Hubbard, program chair for the College’s Information Technology program.

The College’s Information Technology (IT) program has also embraced the idea of convergence which is gaining more popularity in the field.

“Convergence, increasingly prevalent in the IT world, is the tendency that as technology changes, different technological system sometimes evolve toward performing similar tasks,” said Hubbard. “Meaning that there is a strong base of skills and knowledge required across all specializations and that those specializations are interacting more and more as technology continues to evolve.”

Rowan-Cabarrus now offers an Associate in Applied Science in Information Technology with a specialization in one of six fields:

  • Computer Programming and Development
  • Cyber Security
  • Cybercrime and Digital Forensics
  • Information Systems
  • Networking and Virtualization
  • Web Administration and Design

The Cybersecurity specialization, in particular, has received a great deal of national attention. The College recently became officially designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Two-Year Education (CAE2Y) through academic year 2019, a feat that establishes the College as one of the nation’s academic trailblazers in the area of cybersecurity.

“Our security program was heavily vetted by the National Security Administration and they were particularly impressed with our work to secure articulation agreements with four-year institutions such as Champlain College and Pfeiffer University,” said Hubbard.

Jointly sponsored by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the CAE2Y program recognizes colleges and universities that have made significant contributions in meeting the national demand for cyber defense education, developing a number of professionals with cyber defense expertise and ultimately contributing to the protection of the national information infrastructure.

Currently, there are only a small number of educational institutions nationwide with this specific designation, and Rowan-Cabarrus is one of only two community colleges in the state of North Carolina. Upon completion of the program, participants will be prepared for lucrative careers in both local and national industries such as law enforcement and banking.

The College places a strong emphasis on technology, a broad, in-demand and well-paying field that is used across a variety of industries, as it sees the field as a great option for someone entering the workforce or considering a new career.

The technology programs at Rowan-Cabarrus provide students with a sound understanding of the science, technology and applications essential for successful employment in their respective fields by incorporating the competencies of industry-recognized standards. Graduates of these programs should qualify for employment in entry-level positions with businesses, educational systems and governmental agencies.

In addition to Information Technology, these programs are available at the Cabarrus Business & Technology Center, including air conditioning, ventilating, heating and refrigeration (HVAC/R), electronics engineering technology, electrical systems technology and construction management technology.

For more information about Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, please visit www.rccc.edu/apply2017 or call 704-216-RCCC (7222). On November 8, the College will begin registering students for spring classes that begin on January 9, 2017.

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Announces Excellence in Teaching Award Winners

Eric Savage, full-time mathematics instructor, and Natela Yevloyeva, part-time social sciences instructor, received this year’s Outstanding Excellence in Teaching Awards

 

Eric Savage E.I.T..jpg

SALISBURY, N.C. — Rowan-Cabarrus Community College announced its 2015-2016 Excellence in Teaching award recipients at the College’s September board meeting.

The Excellence in Teaching award recognizes superior faculty who go above and beyond the expected levels of delivering instruction and improving educational excellence as demonstrated by student outcomes.

“Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is committed to excellence for our teachers and our students,” said Dr. Carol S. Spalding, president of the College.

Eric Savage, full-time mathematics instructor, has received the College’s 2016 Outstanding Excellence in Teaching Award. Savage received a Master of Science in mathematics with a minor in statistics from University of Tennessee – Knoxville and a Bachelor of Science in mathematics with a minor in history.

Savage loves teaching, especially mathematics, because he knows that he is helping people in their personal lives, whether they realize it or not.

“Mathematics is everywhere – in complex engineering models, statistical surveys and polls, and in computing the interest on a mortgage,” said Savage. “Regardless of the students’ major or career path, they will have to take a math class because wherever they go, they will need to know some level of math.”

As a mathematics instructor, Savage knows that he is inspiring and helping others to learn skills that will enhance their future careers and perhaps their personal lives.

Natela Yevloyeva E.I.T..jpg

Natela Yevloyeva, the College’s part-time recipient, received a Master of Psychology from Moscow University in Russia and a bachelor’s degree in teaching in elementary education from a pedagogical college in Vladikavkaz, Russia. Born in Georgia (the country), Yevloyeva found a passion for psychology and dedicated many years to both teaching and practicing in the Ukraine. She came to the United States and began working for Rowan-Cabarrus in 2007. During her tenure, she has valued the students, faculty and staff at Rowan-Cabarrus for their support and help in adapting to a new country and culture. Yevloyeva also holds an associate degree in nursing.

“We are very proud of Instructors Eric Savage and Natela Yevloyeva for the commitment they have made to our community and our students,” said Spalding.

Students initiate the nomination process for this award annually by recommending their top instructors. Students then help narrow that pool of candidates by voting for their favorites who best represent the College’s instructor of the year. Final nominees are then required to submit an extensive portfolio, letters of recommendation and submit to an unannounced, filmed observation.

“Rowan-Cabarrus Community College has a long and proud tradition of hiring highly qualified and dedicated faculty in all of its academic programs,” said Dr. Michael Quillen, vice president of academic programs. “The faculty members selected for this year’s Excellence in Teaching Awards certainly are representative of this tradition. These faculty members, and many others, do a wonderful job of providing high-quality instruction to the students at Rowan-Cabarrus.”

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Trustees Meet with Local Law Enforcement And Public Safety Leaders

The groups came together to hear an update on the College’s Annual Campus Safety and Security Report

 

09.09.16-3

SALISBURY, N.C. — The Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Board of Trustees were joined by local enforcement and public safety leaders at their September Strategic Conversation.

Attendees included Rowan County Sheriff Kevin L. Auten, Captain for the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office John C. Sifford, Chief of Police for the City of Kannapolis J.W. “Woody” Chavis, Deputy Chief for the City of Concord Police Department Betty Stocks, Chief of Police for the City of Salisbury Jerome “Jerry” Stokes and Captain of Special Operations for the City of Salisbury Police Department Melonie Thompson.

“The Board welcomed the opportunity to meet with these community leaders to discuss our long standing relationship. We appreciated their willingness to join us as it is vital that we communicate and collaborate in order to nurture and grow the College’s ongoing safety and security,” said Carl M. Short, chair of the College’s Board of Trustees.

The strategic conversation primarily centered on discussing the College’s annual safety and security report and the relationship and support extended among public safety, law enforcement and the College, including the many improvements that these areas have focused on over the last few years.

“We are proud that the College has a long history of working with our local law enforcement and public safety professionals. In fact, we provide almost all of the necessary training and education to these individuals as they enter the field and continue their professional certifications,” said Short. “In support of these individuals who are instrumental to the safety and security of our college and region, we remain committed to them, as they are our neighbors, friends and family members.”

09.09.16-9

In 2010, the College conducted a comprehensive campus safety and security study and recognized the importance of leadership in the area and brought on Tim Bost as the director of public safety & security. Bost, a veteran with more than 30 years of experience in the field of public safety, came with a bevy of ideas for improvements and implementations.

“The College has seriously and strategically advanced our capabilities with respect to safety and security,” said Jonathan Chamberlain, chief officer of facilities services at Rowan-Cabarrus. “Conversations like these help to progress our mission of safeguarding and serving our campus community.”

College leadership ultimately decided to bring the institution’s emergency management in line with local, state and national procedures with the utilization of the National Incident Management System (NIMS). This system has helped align all emergency response partners so that in the event of a crisis, there is a structure and plan in place to work together.

The College also created a campus committee to develop an emergency operations response plan. The plan was recently completed, and includes handbooks for faculty and staff as well as students and visitors. The student and visitor handbook can be found at www.rccc.edu/safetyhandbook.

Earlier this year, the College adopted a plan providing each campus location with an Emergency Operations Administrator (EOA) and a Campus Operations Administrator (COA). COAs serve their campus by providing coordination of non-emergency services. EOAs provide management of campus emergencies until public safety officials arrive, establish incident command over any emergencies, verify a 9-1-1 response, meet and brief arriving public safety agencies, monitor and manage the continuing incident until fully resolved, supervise Building Safety Coordinators and more. Communication between these groups is made easier by the implementation of a campus-wide radio system.

“We have had a long history of collaboration with the College, from training to having a consistent presence of local sheriffs on campus,” said Sheriff Auten. “We look forward to continuing this partnership.”

For more information about Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, please visit www.rccc.edu or call 704-216-RCCC (7222). The College is accepting applications for classes beginning October 17, 2016 and January 9, 2017.
