“Our Goals are at the forefront of all we do.

Despite the worldwide economic crisis of 2008-2009, Peninsula College maintained its focus on

teaching and learning. We accomplished many things and changed many lives. As you will see in the

following pages, the College “walks the walk in providing educational opportunities to our community

in all facets of the College mission, as well as investing in the College’s most precious resources; our

faculty and staff.

Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) Program

“Internships and the Strategic Management Course are really the BAS

students’ capstone experiences as they near graduation, Dr. Vicki DeLorey,

BAS program director says.

Internships for the Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) Program began

summer 2008 and expanded during winter 2009 to placements in a variety

of local organizations from all sectors - public, private, and tribal.

Interns have worked at Peninsula Daily News, Olympic Educational

Service District, City of Sequim, Peninsula College Office of the VP

of Administrative Services, Clallam County Emergency Management

Office, Clallam County Sheriff ’s Department, the new nonprofit Vision

Loss Center, a program for underreported students via the Student

Development Office at Peninsula College, among others.

The first Peninsula College BAS class graduated in June 2009.

Upward Bound Program

Following a successful inaugural summer,

the Upward Bound Program at Peninsula College

began its second grant year in its five-year cycle.

In September of 2008, students began receiving

tutoring services and target school visits from our

Upward Bound staff. As of April 1, 2009, we have

served 42 first generation students. At least ten

8th graders are in the early-application process

and the program is projected to serve 60 students

throughout its second grant year, including 50 full

time students over the summer. The goal of Upward

Bound is to provide students with the opportunity

to develop the motivation, skills and belief in their

ability to succeed in high school and post-secondary

education. We assist students with understanding

their value and the diversity of people and cultures

different from their own. Our mission includes

building an atmosphere that enhances positive selfesteem

while fostering unity and collaboration, and

providing an environment that promotes the development of values and attitudes

conducive to producing citizenship and lifelong learning.

Clallam Promise Scholarship

The Clallam Promise Scholarship provides the opportunity for every Clallam

County high school graduate to obtain a Peninsula College education. In 2008, the

Haller Foundation provided the scholarship funds to make a college education possible

for students who otherwise would not have the opportunity given their financial status. The

program is just beginning but is projected to fill the gap between the desire for higher education and the

financial means to obtain it.

The Costa Rica Science Experience

The success of Peninsula College Costa Rica Science Experience (PCCRSE) has led to another

successful Costa Rica experience in Global Health Care – a program that will see its second year in

the summer of 2009.

The PCCRSE began in 2004 as a group of nine students (aged 19-70) and three PC scientists

conducted a simple yet sophisticated tropical ecology research project, examining tropical forests

from the ground up. With each summer, the program has added to the complexity of its work and

has increased the attention of conservation groups, top scientists from the US and Costa Rica, and

federal granting agencies. Our program has brought scientists from Costa Rica and the US to our

campus to meet and share their knowledge with our students and faculty. In 2008, the program led

to a summer-long research project for Dr. Bill Eaton and three PC and WWU Huxley students. They

worked with some of the top tropical ecologists in the world at La Selva Biological Station, Monteverde

Cloud Forest Reserve, and Maquenque

Wildlife Refuge in Costa Rica. This

is an experience unprecedented for

a community college. As a result,

Peninsula College is now an integral

partner of an important, international

research consortium, the San Juan-La

Selva Biological Corridor Advisory

Group, and is conducting cutting edge

research that will lead to new scientific

discoveries and ultimately help to

shape policy.

This year, our program will take

the shape of a molecular study of

microbial ecology and soil nutrient

dynamics that compares forests on

the Olympic Peninsula with those at

two sites in Costa Rica. The project

is fully funded by the National Science

Foundation and includes three PC scientists and ten students from PC and across the nation. The

PCCRSE is an example of how a simple, carefully planned international program can result in a

small college participating in a program of major, international importance.

The Costa Rica Nursing Experience

“This experience gave our students a broader view of the world. They had an opportunity to

experience and live another culture and to share their knowledge. They came away with a better

understanding of community health from an international perspective. And they have brought

that experience back to the campus and the community through public presentations of their

experience, states Marca Davies, Director of Nursing.

Yvonne Krieger enrolled in Peninsula College’s nursing program to be “a help to others. “I believe that nursing is more than

just skills, it requires a compassionate spirit to treat the whole person, Krieger comments. “I am very interested in working in

community health and enjoy working with people of different cultures, so the opportunity to study in Costa Rica fit like a handin-a

glove for me. Now that Yvonne is back, she believes the entire Costa Rican experience will help to make her a better nurse.

The experience “gave me a perspective into another culture’s healthcare system and widened my understanding as a nurse in a

way that was much more valuable and credible than just reading about it in a book, she says. Perhaps most importantly of all,

Krieger knows that “much of what I learned in Costa Rica can be applied right here working as a nurse on the peninsula.

Fast Moving Water: The Hoh River Story, by acclaimed

Peninsula College Forks Extension from March 30 to June 5,

2009, follows the story of the Hoh River, from its headwaters

to the sea. The Hoh River is one of America’s last great rivers,

and this remarkable collection of 14 color photos shares the

river’s pristine journey from its source, the Olympics, to

where it empties into the Pacific Ocean. The Burke Museum,

in collaboration with the Hoh River Trust, sponsors this

Exceptional Faculty grant of more than $4,700

for a public lecture series on the “Great Modern

Philosophers. The funding was a combined

effort of the Peninsula College Foundation

and the budget of the Peninsula College Office

of Instruction for research, advertising, and

production for the year-long public lecture series

in East Jefferson County featuring ten significant

“thinkers of the modern era. The result has

been monthly lectures by Dr. Cecil of complex

philosophical material engaging approximately

1000 community members and students. The free

lecture series have included philosophers Simone

de-Beauvoir and Karl Marx, among others, and

has been a resounding success in the community,

with attendance often at standing room only.

the academic year; faculty meet for various committees and

programs and community members hold retreats and meetings

in the Longhouse up on Peninsula College’s campus. Above all,

the Longhouse is a place for learning in many forms including

art, dance and craft.

space. To date, three artists have featured their distinctive art in the House

of Learning. They are Darrell Charles, Jr., Kenny Jimmicum, and Bill

Martin. “I think my art represents what you would see if you lived among

the Makah, who are ocean-going fishermen who live on the coast of

Washington. states Bill Martin about his work. The Longhouse has featured

many programs in its short history including a Weaver’s Gathering, Paddle On, a canoe journey education for youth, and Dance of

Universal Peace. Check out what’s happening in the House of Learning by visiting the website at houseoflearning.pencol.edu .

International Student Numbers Increase on Peninsula College Campus

Peninsula College strives to reach out to diverse populations. The

recruitment of international students is one of the ways we achieve that

goal. It is a win-win situation for our domestic students who experience

the world through their interactions with students from all over the

globe and the international students experience the United States

culture in the safe, friendly, enriching environment of our campus. In

the Fall of 2009, Peninsula College will welcome back approximately

60 international students from 15 countries with a projected 35 new

students joining them from China, Korea, Hong Kong and Kenya.

Peninsula College has a target goal of doubling the number of

international students in the next four years. The diversity of race,

culture, country and language helps nurture a learning atmosphere

of mutual respect and appreciation that makes the Peninsula College

experience a rich one.

Peninsula College’s goal is to provide a college environment that places

teaching and learning at the center of institutional practice. . .

In 2008, Peninsula College welcomed six new faculty members to our campus. A major tenet

of the College is to keep teaching and learning at the core of all our initiatives. This commitment

to providing quality education is exemplified by our new faculty members. In a shockingly short

amount of time, each has made a profound

impact at the College.

Art Instructor, Michael Paul Miller (far

right), is a native of Wisconsin where he was

a lecturer at Carthage College in Kenosha, the University of Wisconsin (UW) at Madison and Carroll College in Waukesha.

Miller’s art has been showcased at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in a selected solo exhibition. Additionally, his work was

selected by the Denise Bibro Fine Art Gallery in New York City for a group exhibition in January 2008. In less than a year, Miller

held a successful solo exhibit at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. (See above announcement postcards.) Miller received his

M.A. in Painting at UW and a B.F.A. in Painting and Graphic Communications from UW, Oshkosh.

Dr. Ritu Lauer, International Studies Professor, comes to us from Colorado, with plans to develop her

Ph.D. in International Relations and her M.A. from the Graduate School of International Studies at the

University of Denver and her B.A. in Economics from St. Stephen’s College at the University of Delhi, India.

Dr. David Jones, new Professor to our Music Department, has already formed an acclaimed jazz

ensemble with students, staff members and community volunteers. The group has performed in the Little

Theater, on campus, and throughout the community. David joins the campus from Seattle where he was

the Pacific Northwest Ballet Dance Musician, as well as working on staff at the Cornish College of the Arts.

A resident of Washington State for most of his life, David has been a pianist for almost 40 years and a composer for close to 30

years. His music has been performed in the U.S. and numerous countries around the world. Jones received his Ph.D. in Music in

Composition from Indiana University, his M.A. in Music Composition from New England Conservatory, and a B.A. in Music

Composition from the University of Washington.

With his boxes barely unpacked, Dr. David Jones formed a jazz ensemble with students, staff and community volunteers.

The face of Peninsula College changes. . .

Maier Hall is the latest in Peninsula College’s ever changing look and feel. The concept of universal access to higher

education gained widespread acceptance in the 1960s. That decade saw the biggest expansion of community colleges across

the country. Many community colleges, like Peninsula College, were built to address the demand for students seeking an

education. Over the last 50 years, Peninsula College has grown in enrollment and the original buildings have served us well.

Like the new Science and Technology building and the Library/Media

Center which opened in 2007 and 2008 respectively, the Maier Hall Project

will replace aging, outdated buildings with a new academic facility that

includes: general classrooms, a Learning Center including a computer lab

and tutoring space, Basic Skills program space, art studios, music practice

and rehearsal rooms, faculty offices and a lecture/performance hall (right).

The new Maier Hall will replace four existing buildings (F, G, H and I)

on the southwest quadrant of campus. It will be a three story building of

37,680 assignable square feet.

The architects for Maier Hall, Schacht/Aslani Architects, are the same architects that designed the Library/Media Center. The

architecture will consist of glass, brick work and wood reflecting the design theme of the other buildings on campus.

In keeping with the College’s strategic priorities of environmental sustainability, the new Maier Hall will have the following

sustainable elements: a geo-exchange energy source using a closed loop geothermal well-field and ground source water heat

pumps; daylight harvesting; natural ventilation; exterior solar shading, paddle fans and an epiphytic living (moss) roof. These

sustainable elements will assist in this building qualifying for at least LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)

Silver Certification, as did the new Science and Technology building.

Come watch the new look of Peninsula College emerge as demolition of the existing four building will begin July 1, 2009.


. . .but our goal of keeping teaching and learning

at our center remains strong.

The Pirate Women’s Softball Team showed they can run with the big dogs

women escaped with a pair of wins, 7-2 and 7-3, but they didn’t come

easily. The Pirate women finished a tough season, plagued with injuries at

5-19 and 5-28 overall. Look for coach Jim Cheney and his staff to hit the

recruiting trail to pump up the freshman-dominated squad and make a

run at the NWAACC in 2010.

Go, Pirates!


Jack and Evelyn McCarter

Generous Donors

Jack and Evelyn McCarter know the value of education. They both knew early on that the ranching

lifestyle they had grown up in was a hard one and that a good education would give them more options.

Both received degrees in business from New Mexico State University. As parents, they encouraged all

four of their children to go to college. Married 66 years, they began their relationship as high school

sweethearts. The McCarters established the McCarter Nursing Endowment in 2004 and have a special

appreciation for nurses in general. “We like nurses and most of our friends are nurses, explained Jack.

When they came to Port Angeles in 1972, they moved next to the hospital where they befriended many of

the hospital staff. Jack and Evelyn have given generously to Peninsula College and make a special effort

to encourage and uplift those students whose lives are enriched by pursuing their educational dreams.

Jennifer Zaccardo has been a board member of the Peninsula College Foundation since 2001 and served as

president of the Foundation from January 2006 through December 2007. She and her husband Jack have

given generously in support of Peninsula College programs, including Shakespeare on Campus which brings

the famed Ashland actors to our College. They have supported the Foundation’s fundraising efforts, including

a Pacific Northwest Native American book collection for the new campus library for use by both students

and community members. “My husband Jack and I are grateful for our opportunity to add to the inspiration

and energy that Peninsula College brings to the North Olympic Peninsula. We give annually to the Peninsula

College Foundation because our investment provides opportunities to students and the community.
