President’s Welcome to Fall Semester 2016

Welcome to Fall 2016, the start of a new academic year. I’m pleased to continue our journey together as the President of Cincinnati State.

The 2015-16 academic year brought us many changes and challenges, and we should expect new challenges in the year ahead. However, there is so much opportunity and positive energy here at the College that I know it will be a great year.

Over the next few weeks, the data on enrollment, student success, and other key indicators will be finalized, and I will share that information with everyone on September 12th at the State-of-the-College address. It is likely that Fall 2016 enrollment will be lower than Fall 2015, but all of you can be proud of your efforts to change the trend.

I am excited about several new initiatives that will help our students while also promoting Cincinnati State as a truly comprehensive community college. Examples of these projects include establishing a highly visible Transfer Center, providing upgrades for some of our science and technology-related labs and equipment, beginning a Food Pantry to assist students-in-need, and expanding our CState Accelerate pilot program to help more students achieve their college degree more efficiently. Specifics of these initiative will be shared on September 12th as well.

During the 2016-17 year, I hope to improve communications across the College. The Daily News will be returning to “daily,” although in a simpler form; you will hear more updates from Executive Team members; and I will continue to provide opportunities for feedback and dialogue.

Again, welcome and best wishes for this new academic year.

-President Dr. Monica Posey

Cincinnati State Women’s Basketball Helps Out in the Community

The Cincinnati State Women’s Basketball team recently participated in two community service events. Last week Coach Sonya Beeler and the team went to City Gospel Mission to serve dinner and enjoy fellowship with the attendees at the dinner. This week the team went to Matthew25Ministries. The team sorted clothing that will be distributed in the relief efforts in the Louisiana flooding.

Coach Beeler believes that community service is important to the team. “Through our community service projects, we help others. When we visited City Gospel Mission, we touched lives by being a friend to those in need. At the Matthew25Minitries, we helped people who will never be able to repay us and people whom we’ll never meet.”

A message from Soni Hill, Interim VP Enrollment and Student Development:

Many thanks to those who participated in "Catch All" day, held Saturday, August 27.  I certainly appreciated your  patience, cooperation, and assistance in ensuring our students received Be Great services.  We served a great deal of students  who will be tracked for retention and persistence purposes.  Please send any feedback about this event to Nancy Stubbeman at nancy.stubbeman@cincinnatistate.edu.  A follow-up meeting is forthcoming.

Thank you,
