ADVANCED TECHNOLOGICAL EDUCATION CENTERS
Par tners W ith Industr y For A New American Workforce
The Advanced Technological Education (ATE) Program Focuses on the education of technicians for high-technology fields. The National Science Foundation supports three major ATE program tracks: projects, centers, and targeted research in technician education. Two-year college educators have leadership roles in ATE projects and centers. They design and carry out model workforce development initiatives in partnership with industry, four-year colleges, universities, secondary schools, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies. ATE research advances the knowledge base needed to make technician education programs more effective and more forward-looking. ATE Impacts Students by encouraging efforts to increase the participation of diverse populations in advanced technology fields where they have been underrepresented, and promotes the inclusion of persons with disabilities in the technical workforce. ATE Empowers Innovative Educators with competitive grants that make it possible for them to test their ideas for improving the technical skills of technicians, and for boosting the general science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) knowledge of students at various education levels. ATE also supports professional development programs for educators who teach prospective technicians.

The Advanced Technological Education program endeavors to strengthen the skills of technicians whose work is vitally important to the nation’s prosperity and security.

ATE Facilitates Productive Partnerships between educators, industry, and other organizations. ATE also strengthens the connections among community colleges, technical colleges, elementary and secondary schools, and universities. These multifaceted partnerships produce coordinated responses to new workplace and instructional technologies, and help people develop the skills for advanced technology careers.

Fields of technology suppor ted by the ATE program include, but are not limited to:
OIOIOIOIOIOIOI OIOIOIOIOIOIO IOIIIOOIOIOIIIO OIOIOIOIOIIOIO IOIIOIIIOIIOOIO

American Association of Community Colleges 91st Annual Convention April 9–12, 2011 Treasurer’s Report to the Membership
The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) finished the 2010 year with an operating loss of approximately $240,000.This loss was somewhat less than the budgeted loss approved by the board in the 2010 budget, which reflected anticipated extraordinary costs associated with hiring a new president and CEO, as well as continuing costs related to transitioning AACC’s hard copy publications to electronic delivery systems. AACC’s investment portfolio includes approximately $6 million in long-term assets, as required by board policy to maintain at least six months of operational costs in reserve. Following very positive investment performances in 2009 and 2010, AACC has recovered nearly all of the dramatic losses incurred in its portfolio in 2008. During 2010, the association continued to strengthen its programmatic and operational capacity to serve the membership. Substantial ongoing and new commitments occurred in the following areas: improving electronic communication with members and other constituencies, expanding policy research capacity and communication with policymakers and agencies, delivering new programs in sustainability and workforce development, protecting the value of AD Nursing degrees, continuing outreach to potential international students, and continuing the association’s involvement in the Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count initiative. In preparation for determining member dues assessments for 2011, it was apparent very early on that dramatic increases in enrollment equivalents had the potential to increase dues significantly for a great number of our colleges. In an attempt to mitigate this issue, AACC implemented use of a 3-year averaging method that greatly reduced the impact of rising enrollment on dues increases for most of our members. Over time, this new method should tend to smooth the impact of changing enrollment on annual dues increases and decreases. Your association continues to be in a strong financial position. The vast majority of its members continue to perceive the value of their investment in AACC and the return that investment brings to institutions and students. This support is underscored by the continuing response to the association’s request for voluntary additional contributions during the 2011 membership campaign in support of the Nursing and Allied Health Initiative. The AACC board and staff are acutely aware of the financial and productivity pressures being placed upon our members and their representatives here at AACC’s Annual Convention. In the coming year, please be assured that we will continue to do everything we can to provide the services you expect while conserving your financial resources. Respectfully submitted,

Donald O. Brown, Treasurer, Chief Operations & Financial Officer

AN INNOVATIVE ONLINE PORTAL CONNECTING ONLINE STUDENTS WITH ONLINE PROGRAMS
A new initiative from the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) created to overcome the lack of national online visibility and accessibility into the large number of high-quality, affordable online education programs being offered by America’s community colleges. This innovative initiative, entitled OnlineCommunityColleges.org (OCC), includes a plan to incubate a new and trusted single access portal for the online program offerings of community colleges nationwide. On an individual basis, community colleges cannot afford to effectively compete in online searches when up against the billions of marketing dollars being spent by higher cost providers. However, collectively, OCC will provide prospective online students with greater visibility and accessibility into a trusted national community college online education portal. The OCC portal will include online workforce retraining programs, online job program links/listings, as well as certificate and associate degree programs from the participating community colleges nationwide. The portal will enable students to search, evaluate, compare, and select high quality affordable online programs from these colleges all in one convenient location.

News for Community Colleges from the National Science Foundation/DUE                              April 2011 
The Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) has several programs of particular significance to two-year colleges: Advanced Technological Education (ATE): This program promotes improvement in technological education at the undergraduate and secondary school levels by supporting curriculum development; the preparation and professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers; internships and field experiences for faculty, teachers, and students; and other activities. With an emphasis on two-year colleges, the program focuses on the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation’s economy. The program also promotes articulation between programs at two-year colleges and four-year colleges and universities—in particular between two-year and four-year programs for prospective teachers and between two-year and four-year programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (with a focus on disciplines that have a strong technological foundation and lead to entry level technician positions in a specific field). Fields supported by the ATE program include, but are not limited to, agricultural technology, biotechnology, chemical technology, computer and information technology, electronics, environmental technology, geographic information systems, manufacturing and engineering technology, marine technology, multimedia technology, telecommunications, and transportation technology. The ATE program supports proposals in three major tracks:  ATE Projects develop or improve programs, adapt and implement exemplary materials, develop new materials, support technical experiences for students and faculty, provide professional development for college faculty and secondary school teachers, and support research on technical education. In the new solicitation, there are expanded sets of opportunities for 1) addressing business and entrepreneurial skills for students in technician education programs, 2) addressing leadership infrastructure for faculty, and 3) conferences and workshops. ATE Centers provide comprehensive resources, serve as models for other projects, and act as regional or national clearinghouses for educational materials and methods. Targeted Research on Technician Education explores employment trends, the changing role of technicians in the workplace, and other topics that advance the knowledge base needed to make technician education programs more effective and forward looking.

 

The ATE deadline for formal proposals is October 20, 2011. The optional preliminary proposal process has been eliminated from the program. The new ATE program solicitation is available at http://www.nsf.gov/ate. For information about previous awards, visit the ATE Web page at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5464. Institutions are allowed to submit multiple proposals. NSF Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM): This program makes grants to institutions of higher education to support scholarships for academically talented, financially needy students, enabling them to enter the workforce following completion of an associate, baccalaureate, or graduate level degree in science and engineering disciplines. Grantee institutions are responsible for selecting scholarship recipients, reporting demographic information about student scholars, and managing the S-STEM project at the institution. The next proposal deadline for S-STEM is August 11, 2011. More information about S-STEM can be found on the program's web site: http://nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5257 Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (TUES): The FY 2010 solicitation is available at http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2010/nsf10544/nsf10544.htm. Formerly known as CCLI, the TUES program is for all types of educational institutions that serve undergraduates. TUES supports efforts that conduct research on undergraduate STEM education, create new learning materials and teaching strategies, develop faculty expertise, implement educational innovations, and assess student achievement. Type 1: These projects typically will address one program component and involve a limited number of students and faculty members at one academic institution. Projects with a broader scope or larger scale can be proposed provided they can be done within the budget limitations. Proposed evaluation efforts should be informative, based on the project's specific expected outcomes, and consistent with the scope of a Type 1 project. In order to encourage collaboration between four-year colleges and universities and two-year colleges, projects involving such collaboration may request an additional $50,000 over the $200K/project. The distribution of effort and funds between the four-year institution and the community college should reflect a genuine collaboration. Type 2: These projects build on smaller-scale successful innovations or implementations, such as those produced by Type 1 projects, and refine and test these on diverse users in several settings. Type 2 projects

carry the development to a state where the results are conclusive so that successful products and processes can be distributed widely or commercialized when appropriate. At a minimum, the innovation, if successful, should be institutionalized at the participating colleges and universities (up to $600K/project). Type 3: These projects combine established results and mature products from several components of the cyclic model. These projects should include an explicit discussion of the results and evidence produced by the work on which the proposed project is based. Such projects include a diversity of academic institutions and student populations. Dissemination and outreach activities that have national impact are an especially important element of Type 3 projects, as are the opportunities for faculty to learn how to best adapt project innovations to the needs of their students and academic institutions (up to $5 million/project). Central Resource: These projects will work to increase the capabilities of and communications among the STEM education community and to increase and document the impact of TUES projects (up to $3 million, negotiable). The proposal deadline for Type 2, Type 3, and Central Resource Project proposals is January 14, 2011. The next proposal deadline for Type 1 projects is in May, 2011. Information about the TUES program is available at http://nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5741. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Talent Expansion Program (STEP): STEP seeks to increase the number of students (U.S. citizens or permanent residents) receiving associate or baccalaureate degrees in established or emerging fields within STEM. Type 1 proposals are solicited that provide for full implementation efforts at academic institutions. Type 2 proposals are solicited that support educational research projects on associate or baccalaureate degree attainment in STEM. The STEP solicitation is currently being revised. Information about the program and the current solicitation is available at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5488&org=DUE&sel_org=DUE&from=fund. Math and Science Partnership (MSP): The MSP program responds to a growing national concern – the educational performance of the U.S. children in mathematics and science. Through MSP, NSF awards competitive, merit-based grants to teams composed of institutions of higher education, local K-12 school systems, and their supporting partners. Information about the program and the current solicitation is available at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5756. Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship: The Noyce Scholarship program seeks to encourage talented STEM majors and professionals to become K-12 and science teachers. The program provides funds to institutions of higher education (with an extra $250K for partnerships with 2-year colleges) to support scholarships, stipends, and academic programs for undergraduate STEM majors and post-baccalaureate students holding STEM degrees who commit to teaching in high-need K-12 school districts. A new component of the program supports STEM professionals who enroll as NSF Teaching Fellows in master’s degree programs leading to teacher certification by providing academic courses, professional development, and salary supplements while they are fulfilling a four-year teaching commitment in a high-need school district. This new component also supports the development of NSF Master Teaching Fellows by providing professional development and salary supplements for exemplary math and science teachers to become Master Teachers in high-need school districts. Information about the program and the current solicitation is available at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5733. Program Staff: We encourage each of you to investigate these opportunities and apply to the program. If you wish to have additional information or talk with a program director about your ideas, please contact us. There are currently two program directors in DUE from 2-year colleges(listed below). In addition to the disciplines represented below, DUE has program officers in computer science, engineering, geosciences, mathematics, physics, and social sciences. The full staff listing is available at http://www.nsf.gov/staff/staff_list.jsp?org=DUE. We look forward to hearing from all of you soon!
