April 2007 report

Filed under: CAPS — Don Staub @ 2:24 pm

Career and Academic Planning Services (CAPS) has a booth for Springfest. We hope to let high school students and the community know of our free and valuable services. ECU Wachovia Partnership East, University of North Carolina – Wilmington, and North Carolina Central University also had booths to advertise our transfer partnerships. North Carolina State University had planned to attend but the presenter had a death in his family so he could not at the last minute.

The Advisor Training survey is currently available at
Faculty have until Monday, April 30 to take it. At the start of this week, we had 21 respondents. Faculty responses will help drive what types of advisor training is available for them. I am in the process of making a survey specifically for adjunct faculty needs as well.

I spoke with Anne Faulkenberry of the Wachovia Partnership East Program about doing a workshop for faculty about that program. She is excited and willing to do so. We are discussing the possibility of having sessions both during the summer and in the fall.

Most of the furniture has been ordered for the permanent CAPS location of McGee 119. There was not quite enough money to do what we need to do so we are hoping to finish ordering what we need in the next fiscal year. McGee 119 is currently being used for classes for spring semester. Over the summer we will be able to move into the room and begin to provide drop in services. We are currently running by appointment only.

I am in the process of writing a job description for a temporary position to work in the CAPS center during the summer and hopefully through October which is when we are able to hire the first part-time position. Barbara and Don have been very helpful through this process.

Jeannette was very helpful in processing requisitions for my professional development experience this summer. I will be attending the Summer Institute on First Year Assessment. This activity should help us better incorporate Career and Academic Planning Services into our ACA Study Skills courses as well as measure our effectiveness in doing so.

I meet with Lynn Judy about her new Instructional Service Agreement with Pitt Community College, the Medical Office Administration Degree. She explained well what types of jobs people who have this degree will enter and how the partnership with Pitt CC works so that I can help guide interested students to her program. I appreciate her taking time to meet with me.

I attended all three of the Advising/ Registration meetings and presented an advising syllabus and tips for helping students during registration. I also sent the syllabus via e-mail for those who could not attend and so anyone can adapt it to meet their needs.

This month was short work month for me due to spring break and the CCC Leadership Academy Retreat. With the short month, there were 14 CAPS appointments for April.

Respectfully submitted,
