Great College to Work For

RCC named a “Great College to Work For” Three Consecutive Years

Great College to Work For

For the third consecutive year, Rappahannock Community College has been honored as a “Great College to Work For” by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Rappahannock Community College is a great college to work for in 2017, according to a new survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education, a top trade publication for colleges and universities. This marks the third time in as many years that RCC has been recognized with this honor.

The results, released today in The Chronicle’s tenth annual report on The Academic Workplace, are based on a survey of colleges and universities.

This year, like 2016, RCC had the added honor of earning the Honor Roll distinction, which means the College “stands out” in our size categories.

Also, RCC was recognized for the following achievements:

  • Collaborative Governance — Faculty members are appropriately involved in decisions related to academic programs.
  • Compensation & Benefits — Pay is fair, and benefits meet the needs of employees.
  • Job Satisfaction and Support — Provides insight into the satisfaction with job fit, autonomy, and resources.
  • Professional/Career-Development Programs — Employees are given the opportunity to develop skills and understand requirements to advance in their careers.
  • Respect and Appreciation — Employees are regularly recognized for their contributions.
  • Teaching Environment — Faculty members say the institution recognizes innovative and high-quality teaching.

“For three consecutive years, RCC has been a recipient of this honor, and I could not be happier,” said Dr. Elizabeth Hinton Crowther, president of Rappahannock Community College. “This report and recognition show that our culture is among the very best in higher education, and it reflects our employees’ dedication to excellence for students.”

“Ten years in, the Great Colleges to Work For distinction is well-known by academic jobseekers as a sign that an institution’s employees are valued and given opportunities for growth even when they face financial constraints,” said Liz McMillen, editor of The Chronicle. “Any college or university that’s on the list is showing that they emphasize one of their most valuable assets: their faculty and staff.”

Only a small percentage of the institutions that applied for the program achieved “Great College to Work For” recognition. Over 200 institutions participated in 2017, including 155 four-year institutions and 77 two-year institutions; just 79 institutions are recognized as a great college to work for, including 57 four-year institutions and 22 two-year institutions.

The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.

Drs. Perry and Brent

RCC staff members, Brent and Perry, earn doctorates

Drs. Perry and Brent

Members of the Rappahannock Community College leadership team — Dr. Jason Perry of Middlesex and Dr. Matthew Brent of Lancaster.

Two familiar faces at Rappahannock Community College recently achieved a personal goal, which will allow them to better serve their students, but also will enhance the mission of the College in general.

Jason Perry, who serves as the Vice President of RCC’s Workforce Development department and Matthew Brent, a history faculty member, earned their doctorate degrees.

Perry studied at Virginia Tech and earned his Doctorate in Education (Ed.D) with a specialization in career and technical education, while Brent studied at University of the Cumberland and earned his Ph.D. in leadership with a specialization in history.

Brent is planning to use his new degree in some ways, but one will benefit the College immediately. Due to the departure of one long-time staff member, Dr. Brent will serve as an acting academic dean for 2017-18.

Perry wrote his dissertation on Virginia’s Middle College program, which helps high school dropouts, age 18-24, finish up their GED in about a year and transition smoothly into college. Perry’s focus was on those who participate in the programs and factors of completion, community college success, and participant perceptions.

“We found that high school dropouts don’t typically get a second chance,” says Perry. “Once we brought them onto a college campus, it truly gave them the motivation to continue towards achieving success. It was interesting to see that information appear in the study.”

One of the focuses in Perry’s program was andragogy, or the method and practice of teaching adult learners, which fits perfectly in his role at the College.

Perry enjoyed the extensive amount of writing and reading his degree required, feeling like it helped him understand the topic far better, while Brent enjoyed reaching out to other students on Blackboard collaborate and felt like the frequent meetings made it easier to achieve communication despite the online environment.

Both were elated to finish their programs, as were their family. Perry started the program in 1992 and took a break for ten years due to job and location change. He started back up six years ago. Brent was a first-generation college student and the first in his family to go to graduate school and beyond.

Brent is very excited for the future.

“It was a lot of work. It was not as difficult as I thought it would have been because a lot of what I was studying I was doing by working at the college,” says Brent.

“There were a lot of hands-on experiences that helped supplement what I was doing in the program, which made it so much more relevant,” he says. “I had thought about doing a Ph.D. in history but there are only three schools in Virginia that offer those, and you have to physically go there.”

RCC’s fall classes begin on August 28. — April Wobken

RCC Open Houses

Make plans to visit campus for upcoming Open House events

RCC Open Houses

RCC will host a series of Open Houses, in which the public is invited to visit our campuses and site. Faculty and staff will be on hand to help answer questions about our upcoming fall semester.

In preparation for the upcoming semester, the faculty and staff of Rappahannock Community College would like to invite the public to a series of Open Houses, where parents, students and potential students can learn about what RCC has to offer this Fall. Topics of the sessions will include:

While it may not be well known, attending RCC is among the best ways to save on tuition costs as one starts their college career. In fact, attending RCC for one year is just over $4,000, as compared to the average cost of a public university in Virginia, which is over $12,000 — not counting room and board.

Staff will be on-hand to show folks how to take advantage of this incredible cost-savings potential, as well as:

Open House locations, times and dates

Directions and more information are available at our website, www.rappahannock.edu. Our Fall semester, which is enrolling now, begins on August 28.
