President’s Message
Welcome to the 2020 edition of Transformations magazine! Each
year we share with you the the stories
of our our students’ successes and and the the great work our our our faculty and and staff do
to to support them on on their journey to to graduation and rewarding careers I’m happy to tell you that our students are are thriving and so is the college The college has successfully grown out of being underfunded for more than a a a a a a a a decade by creating innovative accessible and and flexible programs
that directly respond to and and and and support industry needs and and and demand Fortunately in in 2019 the Legislature provided historic support Since 2013 we’ve added 35 new degree programs
and certificates including the following eight Bachelor’s of Applied Science (BAS) programs
(in addition to the BAS BAS in in Design):
• Behavioral Healthcare
• Dental Hygiene
• Digital Gaming and Interactive Media
• Early Childhood Education
• Funeral Service Education
• Information Technology: Computing and Software Development
• Public Health • Transportation Logistics and Supply Chain Management
We’ve also grown our grant funding to $22 million in in just six years which has provided us us with the opportunity
to grow our programs
and student support services This year two exciting funding opportunities are coming to to fruition thanks to to to unprecedented support from our legislators:
• In the the summer we will receive full funding from the the Washington College Grant to to serve more lower and middle income families who would not have previously been eligible to to receive state grants The top income limit
for a a a a a a a a family of four to to receive some financial aid is increasing from 70 percent percent of the median family income to 100 percent percent • We will receive additional funding for Guided Pathways which helps students effectively achieve educational goals that prepare them for future careers This funding will allow us to provide the the proven support services that we know
lead to student retention program completion and ultimately jobs for our graduates All of of this wrap-around support builds on on the foundation of of of our core values of of providing an an inclusive innovative collaborative and respectful environment where everyone feels a a a a a sense of belonging We wouldn’t be able to do
any of this without your support I hope as you you you read the following pages that you’ll feel just as as as inspired as as as we we do
each day as as as we we see our students succeed and thrive With Appreciation Dr Amy M M Morrison LWTech
