Dear Friends:

It is my privilege to present the 2005 Annual Report for Flathead Valley Community College. As you

study our report, I think you will agree that 2005 was a year that highlighted exciting successes for

our students, faculty and community. From record-sized graduating classes on both the Kalispell and

Lincoln County campuses to an esteemed Best Practices Award honoring the College’s innovation

and leadership in establishing the Flathead Business and Economic Council, the College continues

to achieve our community mission to promote excellence in lifelong learning, focused on student

success and community needs.

Every day, I meet new and returning students. Although a diverse group, these Montanans have

one thing in common: they share a vision and a commitment to live and work in Montana. They seek

education, support and training to achieve those goals for themselves and for their families.

Last year the College’s annual graduate survey reported that 98 percent of our graduating class, who wanted a job, were able

to secure employment and are working today locally in Flathead, Lake and Lincoln counties. That is the sixth consecutive year

that more than 95 percent of all FVCC job-seeking graduates successfully secured employment. Another remarkable fact is that

more than half of FVCC graduates plan to transfer to four year colleges, and many of them will invest in Montana colleges.

FVCC students’ perspectives on the benefits of higher education are the most obvious, but as they join and rejoin our local

workforce, their expanded skills translate to higher salaries for themselves and higher standards of living for their families and

a more robust local economy for Northwest Montana. I hope you will join me in my enthusiasm and pride for another year of

outstanding achievement by our students and the communities who support them.

Best Practice Award

Record Graduation

Flathead Valley Community College was awarded the Association of

Community College Trustees (ACCT) Community Economic 2004 Best

Practice Award for the Western Region for its role in creating the Flathead

Business and Education Council (FBEC). Among those present to accept

the award at the October ACCT Annual Community College Leadership

Congress 2004 were FVCC Board of Trustees Chair Robert Nystuen, Vice

President John Engebretson and Secretary Mark Holston.

Commencement, held May 13, 2005, saw the largest graduation class in FVCC’s history. A total of 320 students from both the

Kalispell and Lincoln County campuses applied for degrees or certificates.

Four FVCC employees received their college degrees during the Spring 2005 Commencement. Non-traditional-aged students,

Connee Greig, Debbie Struck, Melanie Settle and Leslie Rogers entered the workforce out of high school and later went back to

college to obtain their degrees. Greig and Rogers began working on their degrees

in the fall of 1990, while Struck began taking classes in the fall of 1989 and Settle in

the spring of 1988. These four women are typical of many non--traditional

students at FVCC

FVCC Receives Grants to Strengthen Occupational

Programs and Expand Transfer Opportunities

In the fall of 2004, Flathead Valley Community College was

awarded a $100,000 Perkins Leadership Grant from the Montana

University System Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education.

The Career Pathways Initiative grant funded the Montana Career

Clusters in Manufacturing, Focusing Education on the Future project.

The project developed a Model Career Cluster in Manufacturing

with focused pathways in six areas: production; manufacturing

production process development; maintenance, installation

and repair; quality assurance; logistics and inventory control;

and health, safety and environmental assurances.

In May 2005, the college successfully completed and

received approval of funds for equipment totaling $693,577

from a Montana Board of Regents grant. The grant will provide

new and updated equipment for the Heavy Equipment

Operators program, Surveying and Natural Resources

Management AAS degree programs, Construction Trades

certificate and associate degree programs and HVAC

certificate programs in the fall of 2006.

The funding was part of the $3 million allocated by

the 2005 Montana Legislature to update equipment at

two-year colleges throughout the state.

FVCC also continues to offer a variety of strong

transfer programs, enabling students to obtain their first

two years of study at FVCC at an affordable cost. FVCC

works with four-year colleges and universities in the state

and across the country to ensure students can transfer

their credits seamlessly.

Other Credit Program Highlights

FVCC hosted its 11 th annual Senior Institute program

in the spring of 2005 offering a series of credit classes for

senior citizens ages 62 and older. Classes involved a

variety of subjects including jewelry making, health and

fitness and computers. The college saw a 29 percent

increase in participation from the previous spring with a

total enrollment of 155 seniors.

Creating Windows of Opporunity


Community Conversations

FVCC President Jane Karas hosted two types of public forums during the

fiscal year.

• In fall of 2004,14 legislators and candidates

attended FVCC forums held in Kalispell and

Libby. The forums provided the opportunity to

have a dialogue with the college about its

students, programs, plans and the role it plays

in the community.

• In the spring of 2005, President Karas hosted

12 community conversations, traveling from

Polson to Eureka. A total of 85 participants

attended to share their views about the

college’s strengths and areas of opportunity.

Participants identified strengths including:

quality faculty and staff; transferability of

credits; strong academic and non-credit

programs; growth of online learning; valuing

community partnerships; and responding to

the needs of area businesses.

Multicultural Experiences

In the spring of 2005, FVCC began expanding

its multicultural awareness outreach by providing

Lincoln County residents with the opportunity to participate in various multicultural

lectures, films and events held at the college’s Kalispell campus via interactive

television at no cost.

FVCC hosted its 12th Annual Native American Thanksgiving Celebration for Kids

November 22, 2004. Approximately 500 teachers, assistants and children in

kindergarten through fourth grade from area public elementary schools attended

the event. Local artist Jack Gladstone educated the children about Native

American culture through performances of songs and historical presentations.

On March 16, 2005, FVCC invited the community to celebrate a “Festival of

Cultures.” The event consisted of music performances, ethnic foods and clothing

vendors from various cultures around the world including Nepal, Peru, India

and Guatemala.

Giving Back

FVCC Elderhostel volunteers participated in the Glacier National Park Restoration

Program, in partnership with FVCC and Glacier National Park, in September 2004.

Seventeen volunteers from all over the United States

spent a week working on a variety of projects to

preserve the park and its awe-inspiring beauty.

Elderhostelers worked on various projects including

planting over 1,000 plants, collecting seeds and

restoring a historic cabin to its original structure.

President Karas and Vice-President of Instruction

Kathy Hughes pitched in to help with the revegetation

project behind Lake McDonald Lodge.

Expanding Education

FVCC hosted an address to the Montana

Legislature by Montana’s U.S. Senator Max Baucus

from Helena via interactive television giving FVCC

employees, students and area residents the

opportunity to view the address. The college was

one of three participating sites in Montana. Following

the address, Baucus responded to questions from

viewers at the participating sites.

FVCC, in conjunction with The Big Sky Astronomy

Club, celebrated Astronomy Day 2005 on the Kalispell

campus on April 16. The club provided numerous

astronomy-related activities and displays including sun

viewing through telescopes and presentations focusing on our universe and Robonaut:

NASA’s Humanoid Robot.

In the spring of 2005, usage of interactive television for distance education of FVCC

classes in Lincoln County doubled from its debut in the fall of 2004.

Community Connections

In the fall of 2004, FVCC introduced a new job service, “CONNECT.” The state-ofthe-art

student employment software system helps provide employers and potential

student employees with better opportunities to connect for job opportunities. The

free service allows employers to post positions online and to search for students and

alumni by degrees, skill levels or majors and also allows students to search, view and

apply for jobs posted by local employers and internship providers online.


Service Learning

The Service Learning program at FVCC provided students with valuable hands-on volunteer

experiences. The projects reinforce academic learning, improve leadership skills and create a sense

of community awareness and civic responsibility. The program requires students complete 15 hours of

volunteer work throughout the semester.

During the 2004-2005 academic year, 309 FVCC students participated in Service Learning projects

providing more than 5,190 hours of community service throughout the Flathead Valley.

• In fall 2004, the Service Learning Office celebrated Make a

Difference Day by cleaning, organizing and landscaping a

Habitat for Humanity home in Whitefish.

regional and state speakers, including T.R. Reid of the Washington

Post Rocky Mountain Bureau and Harry Zeeve of The Concord

Coalition. The lectures attracted more than 1,000 students and

community members.

Free to the public, the symposium

sought to inform attendees of the

dilemmas our country is faced with

as America prepares to be

reinvented for the fourth time in its

history. The symposium addressed

the role technology plays in our

society as well as the challenges it

brings. Symposium participants heard

artistic creativity shine. Qualified instructional

staff developed half-day, week-long classes

to provide educational experiences for this

summer program.

The Continuing Education Center

continues to offer a diverse selection of

online non-credit classes. Students find the

convenience of the classes a great

alternative to the traditional classroom


FVCC’s Elderhostel program celebrated its 23 rd anniversary this year by

offering 20 programs, enrolling close to 600 hostelers from across the United

States. Participants could choose from a variety of educational experiences

and accommodations ranging from a rustic ski lodge to Glacier National Park’s

classic Many Glacier Hotel.

FVCC’s Continuing Education Center

sponsored the following activities for


• 700 participants attended a variety of business

workshops from real estate to leadership


• 23 businesses received 57 customized training

sessions involving a total of 646 employees.

• 1,050 individuals, statewide, participated in

Montana Superhost! gaining knowledge of

Montana’s tourism industry.

The FVCC Continuing Education Center

participated in panel presentations on its

involvement in economic development and

business partnerships. These presentations took place at the Two-Year

Colleges Conference, Montana Workforce Conference and at a number of

sessions for statewide workforce and economic development representatives.

The Business Expansion and Retention Program (BEAR) kicked off in January

2004 with FVCC as an active founding partner. As part of the program, the

Continuing Education Center solicited opinions from local businesses on various

services and amenities with the goal of connecting them with appropriate

business resources. BEAR focused on rapidly growing businesses and revealed

that recruiting and retaining qualified workers is the number one challenge

facing area businesses.

The Continuing Education Center’s involvement with both the Flathead

Regional Business Center and the BEAR program continues to enhance the

college’s ability to deliver relevant services for maximum economic

development by increasing the college’s knowledge the specific needs of

area businesses.


Four Flathead Valley Community College surveying

students were named recipients of Montana Association

of Registered Land Surveyors (MARLS) 2004 Scholarships.

Out of five awards statewide, four of the $2,000

scholarships went to FVCC students. The recipients

include Eric Konop of Rice Lake, Wis.; William Morrison of

Whitefish; Wayne Lockman of Kalispell; and Richard

Harrison of Whitefish.

Foundation representative Ed Jasmin and Kelly

Chapman, programs director of the Student Assistant

Foundation, presented a check in the amount of

$20,043.29 to the FVCC Board of Trustees on June 27,

2005. The grant was generated through the foundation’s

Acce$$ Grant program to help FVCC students whose

unmet needs create barriers that prevent them from

continuing their education.

For many students and families, the cost of a college education or even a few courses is more than what

their discretionary income can accommodate. As a result, the availability of financial assistance is extremely

important. During the 2004/2005 academic year the Financial Aid Office made awards to and/or processed

assistance for 1,220 students, 60% of our degree/certificate-seeking students. Assistance to these students

totaled $ 3,922,086. The table below shows the breakdown and distribution of aid.
