Owens Community College has reviewed programs being offered and will eliminate several, mostly certificates, due to declining enrollment in those programs and the changing need for workers in the community.
Among the programs being phased out are cancer information management, e-business, alternative energy and sustainable systems, environmental health and safety technology, and interior design technology.
Students currently enrolled in these programs and certificates will be given one additional year to complete a certificate and two additional years to complete an associate degree. This is standard protocol for program closures, according to Denise Smith, vice provost of academic services and dean of interdisciplinary studies at Owens. All students have been notified of the time lines specific to their degree.
According to Smith, many factors are considered when reviewing programs. These include enrollment and graduation percentages, students taking the classes in the area, available jobs in the immediate area, and how the educational program aligns with requirements for employment.

Veterans offered help at BGSU PDF Print E-mail

Incoming student veterans at Bowling Green State University can arrive on campus confident in the knowledge that fellow student veterans will be on hand to help them navigate the transition to college life.
BGSU is one of just three schools nationwide participating in a pilot program administered by the Veterans Administration called PAVE (Peer Advisors for Veterans Education).
PAVE is a peer support program that connects incoming student veterans with student veterans already on campus. PAVE peer advisers can help identify any challenges that student veterans are facing and help locate appropriate resources on or off campus. They provide ongoing support to help student veterans meet academic and personal goals.
According to Barbara Henry, assistant vice president for Nontraditional and Transfer Student Services, the VA chose BGSU for its excellent reputation in assisting student veterans. The university is recognized yearly in Military Times Magazine as one of its "Best for Vets."

When Catherine Smith, then Catherine Grassley, was a child growing up on Dunbridge Road, she would climb out her window and sit on the roof watching the planes fly over.
Now, Smith may be in one of those planes, either piloting herself or guiding a novice pilot.
Smith is a key player in Bowling Green State University's growing aviation program. She teaches three classes in the College of Technology and is chief flight instructor at the Bowling Green Flight Center.
That puts her at the nexus of the new collaboration between the university and North Star Aviation, which now provides the flight training for the aviation program.
Smith's roots in the program go deep. She graduated with a degree in aviation from BGSU in 1998.
All that, said Kevin Doering, the flight center manager, makes Smith "a vital ingredient to the future success of the partnership between Bowling Green Flight Center and Bowling Green State University."

Sherron Watkins landed on the cover of Time magazine, got up close and personal with a bunch of U.S. Congressmen, and was lauded by Barbara Walters as one of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2002.
On the other hand she lost not just a dream job, and most of her retirement savings along with it, but ultimately an entire career.
The "whistleblower of Enron" gave the keynote address for the Bowling Green State University College of Business' Women in Leadership conference Thursday. This year's theme: "Women and Ethics in the Workplace."
The collapse of Houston-based energy and commodities giant Enron was a corporate swindle of a magnitude almost defying belief.
Prior to joining Enron, Watkins, who had a B.S. in Accounting, worked in New York City, part of the time for accounting giant Arthur Andersen.
