Prof. Hugh Clark, Chair of Automation Engineer Technology


Professor Hugh Clark appointed as State Rep for Accreditation Advisory Council

Prof. Hugh Clark, Chair of Automation Engineer Technology has been appointed the Vocational-Technical rep for the state Accreditation Advisory Council. The AAC provides input to the Kansas Department of Education on K-12 accreditation and general issues of policy, particularly those with post-secondary relevance. State School Board Member Ann Mah, of Topeka, invited the KNEA and FA to submit names for the Council. Hugh's reputation of advocacy for career-technical education and his experience with last year's shared governance task force made him a natural fit.


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Survey  On September 14, all students and employees received individualized links in an email from JCCC President Andy Bowne for the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion survey. Students received the email in stumail. Please check your email – it may be in your clutter or junk mail - and take it by September 30. The survey is part of the college's larger Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Assessment, conducted by MGT Consulting.
