Lawmakers Support Equity, Job Training Initiatives at Capital Community College’s Legislative Breakfast

State lawmakers voiced support for debt-free community college and expansion of neighborhood-based training for manufacturing and other trades in Hartford  at a Town and Legislative Breakfast sponsored by the Capital Community College Foundation on January 30th.

Capital’s CEO G. Duncan Harris told legislators that the College, which offers more than 50 associate degree and certificate programs, is preparing students for “a first job, a better job and a career”  in response to the Governor’s  goal that 70 percent of adults in the state have a post-secondary education. He pointed to data showing a decline of low-skill jobs during the last recession with 13,000 “disconnected” youth now in North Central Connecticut in need of post-secondary training. Unemployment among 20-24 year olds in Hartford exceeds 20 percent compared to 11.7 percent for all of Hartford County. Dr. Harris stressed that without “credentials of value” residents will not be able to fill jobs in today’s economy.

Over the last year Capital has been addressing the challenge through development of an Equity Diversity and Inclusion Center that uses a “Single Stop” approach for holistic support around food resources, health insurance, legal and financial assistance including tax preparation.  School to career programs are now based at the LEAD Center (Leadership, Excellence, Achievement and Development) with apprenticeships and paid internship opportunities and  where workforce training is available for in demand occupations in health care,  manufacturing and construction.  The College, nationally ranked for educating older students (25 and over),  is ranked in the top five percent of two-year colleges nationwide in terms of upward mobility, according to an index from Harvard Opportunity Insights (2019) cited by Harris.

State Rep. Matt Ritter

Dr. Harris, appointed to lead CCC in July, 2018, said Capital is interested in working with the city and partners in development of a “Trades at Capital” initiative that would establish a manufacturing and education training center in the city’s Upper Albany neighborhood.

Legislators and guests also discussed legislation adopted in 2019 that mandated a “last dollar” scholarship program for full-time community college students.  Funding for the program is expected to be addressed in the 2020 legislative session to implement the program known as Pledge To Advance Connecticut (PACT) .

State Rep. Matt Ritter, the House Majority Leader representing Hartford’s 1st District, praised the PACT scholarship program being advocated by the Co-Chairs of the Higher Education and Employment Advancement Committee, State Rep. Gregg Haddad and State Senator Will Haskell.  He said the debt-free college program leverages federal Pell grants and other sources, making it affordable for the state budget.  “We are committed to making it happen,” Ritter said.

Rep. Ritter also urged the college to pursue advanced manufacturing training in the Homestead and Albany avenue area of the North End to make that kind of job training accessible to residents. “One of the things we have to take from here is to how to do that with the college,” Ritter stated.

Joining Ritter at the breakfast in support of Capital’s programs and initiatives was State Rep. Brandon McGee, representing a portion of Hartford and Windsor and the Chair of the Black & Puerto Rican. McGee introduced State Reps. Jason Rojas, Joshua Hall and State Senator Doug McGrory from Hartford and East Hartford  and State Rep. Bobby Sanchez of New Britain, the House Chair of the Legislature’s Education Committee.

Local officials participating in the Town & Legislative Breakfast were:  Mayor Michael Rell of Wethersfield, Hartford City Councillor Nick LeBron and Siadeh Lee representing City Councillor Shirley Surgeon.  Guests included Raina Giddings of the Metro Hartford Alliance, Elsa Huertas of Southside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance (SINA), Cynthia Sanchez of the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, CCC Foundation Chair David McCluskey and Foundation Director Sharon Thomas.

State legislators from Hartford and surrounding towns, city and town officials and community partners will participate in the annual event ahead of the 2020 session of the Connecticut General Assembly that begins February 5th.

Like other “free community college” plans in other states the program relies on federal and other  financial aid programs to meet all tuition and educational expenses.  At Capital full-time tuition and fees for a year totals $4,566.

Seating is limited for the Town & Legislative Breakfast at Capital. RSVPs are required for this event. For more information contact the college’s advancement office at 860-906-5102 or email  CA-foundation@capitalcc.edu.

Giving Tuesday at #DestinationCapital: Six Ways To Give Back

The Campaign For Capital

Giving Tuesday at #DestinationCapital

Tuesday, December 3rd Capital Community College (CCC) Foundation joins with nonprofits, higher education institutions and community organizations in an  international day of giving at the height of the holiday shopping season.

DONATE

Capital’s goal for Giving Tuesday 2019 is $5,000 — an amount that will support a full time student’s tuition, fees and other educational expenses for one year in an associate degree program.

Gifts — no matter the amount – support Capital’s mission of educational access and academic success for students who face financial and personal challenges in getting to and graduating from college without debt.

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday began in 2012 at the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation as a response to commercialization and consumerism on the day that follows “black” Friday and “cyber” Monday. It’s a day to encourage generosity, volunteerism and acts of kindness locally and globally and it has grown to generate more than $1 billion for good causes.

Six Ways of Giving Back On Giving Tuesday and throughout the year

  • Donate at the secure GIVING PAGE  or make your pledge or gift by downloading a Giving Tuesday gift reply form.
  • Encourage your colleagues, friends and family to join you in making a gift
  • Make your donation quarterly for impact throughout the year.
  • Designate your gift in honor or in memory of an individual who made a difference in your life.
  • Share your support for the college and its programs on social media. Hashtag #Destination Capital. #Giving Tuesday
  • Share your story if you attended or graduated from CCC (including Greater Hartford Community College and Hartford State Technical College) at https://capcommcollege.org/alumni-feedback-share-your-story/. Alumni experiences and success inspire today’s students to excel.

Where Does My Gift Go?

100% of gifts go where donors want. You may designate your gift to an existing  Foundation scholarship or endowment fund  or a program at Capital.  Capital relies on contributions to the Annual Fund to provide a critical margin necessary for new scholarships, tutoring, advising and resources for teaching and learning.

To ensure more students succeed in 2020, CCC is seeking to do more to address obstacles that get in the way of graduation:

·         An Equity Diversity and Inclusion Center with new support services to address childcare, food security, health, immigration and housing issues.

·         The Leadership, Excellence, Achievement and Development (LEAD) Center where students find financial education and counseling, paid internships and workplace training for that first job, then a better job and a career in their chosen field.

·         Support for the Foundation Scholarship Program over and above federal and institutional aid that enable students to earn their associate degrees without interruption or debt. Seven of 10 Capital students qualify for financial aid.

That’s why your generosity is so important.

Gifts from the community are the margin of difference in creating access and giving Capital the support it needs to continue as a stepping stone to higher education and career opportunity.

DONATE

Contributions to the CCC Foundation are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. For more information on gift opportunities, the downtown campus and college programs contact the Institutional Advancement Office at 860-906-5102. Email: jmcnamara@capitalcc.edu

$75,000 CHEFA Grant Enhances New Radiologic Technology Laboratory

A newly renovated Radiologic Technology Laboratory opened in the fall semester for students enrolled in the nationally accredited health professions program at Capital Community College. The new lab was made posssible by a $75,000 grant from the Connecticut Health and Education Facilities Authority (CHEFA).

Alumna of the Radiologic Technology Program joined in a ribbon cutting for a new lab at Capital, including the administrative director and managers of Medical Imagining at ECHN hospitals. From left:  Samantha Bourbeau, Agnieszka Dziiubinski, Jillian Menzel with Program Coordinator Paul Creech and Christina Gallignano.

Capital CEO Duncan Harris, acknowledging support from CHEFA’s 2019 Client Grant Program, welcomed faculty, alumni, staff and students on September 23rd when the ribbon was officially cut at the newly equipped facility. The CHEFA grant paved the way for a fully equipped core radiographic room that simulates the x-ray and radiographic labs in hospitals and clinical settings.

Acquisitions include an elevating table, floor mounted tube supports, high voltage cables, x-ray grid, PC and software simulating an integrated DR system. Last summer the College refurbished a lab room to accommodate the new equipment on the 8th floor where nursing and health professions programs are based.

Alumna Agnieszka Dziubinski, an ECHN Medical Imaging Manager, praised CCC students who come to Manchester and Rockville Hospitals for their clinicals as “compassionate and professional.” She said “it’s great to see how well this program is preparing and educating students before their first clinicals.”

Professor Paul Creech, MPH, Esq., who has coordinated Rad Tech studies since their inception at Capital in 1992, introduced alumna working at health care institutions that are a part of the College’s extensive network of clinical sites in central Connecticut.

State-of-the-art x-ray equipment in the college’s Rad Tech lab funded by a $75,000

Radiologic technology is a major component of associate degree and certificate granting programs in the health professions (nursing, medical assisting, paramedic) at Capital with high rates of completion and career employment.

Established in 2002, the CHEFA Grant Program supports nonprofit organizations that provide essential health, educational, cultural, and childcare services to the residents of Connecticut. More than $30 million has been distributed to Connecticut nonprofit organizations. CHEFA is the authority that manages tax-exempt bond financing and child car loan programs.
