Year-end progress updates due today

If you submitted a project request during the FY ’22 planning and budgeting process, you will be required to submit year-end progress update information for approved projects by today, Oct. 7. To gather progress information for last fiscal year’s initiatives, there is a simple year-end progress update form for your completion. This will serve as a close-out for all FY ’22 planning and budgeting projects. Budget maintenance requests are excluded from this process. FY ’22 planning and budgeting recap documents are available on SharePoint for your reference.

Please access the SharePoint form and provide progress information for each of your FY ’22 projects. The form is filtered to display the project ID numbers that you will need to respond to. Select a project ID number, provide the necessary information, include supporting documents as attachments and submit the form. As each project ID is completed, it will be removed from the drop down list on the SharePoint form.

All submitted forms will be routed directly to your VP for review.

Your responses should include specific evidence to support your project progress. If you have questions about what type of specific support, please contact Karie Longhta. If you have any problems with accessing the SharePoint page, contact Megan McCann.

Dr. Laurel Bretz and Dr. Nancy Sweet
Laurel Bretz, assistant vice president of continuing, corporate and professional education, and Nancy Sweet, dean of the Workforce Institute, recently earned the degrees of Doctor of Education with a focus on higher education administration from Bradley University. Their research methodology employed action research on the LLCC campus to complete their doctoral projects. Laurel’s research work was titled “Older Adult Learning: Persistence, Barriers and Value,” which examined organizational effectiveness by identifying factors contributing to third age learners’ persistence, preferences and satisfaction with the Academy of Lifelong Learning. Her degree was conferred May 14, 2022. Nancy’s research work was titled “Improving Career and Technical Education Through Early Support Programs” and focused on how to minimize community college career and technical education students’ motivational barriers to help increase persistence and completion rates.  Her degree was conferred Aug. 15, 2022.
