Colleague 4.3 offers increased efficiency
Jennifer Williams, office associate in International Enrollment Services, says the new Colleague 4.3 User Interface really helps her do her job faster and more efficiently. She says she made a point of becoming familiar with the new functions as quickly as possible so she could work faster.
The international high school transcript process is a two-step process using two or more screens. “Being able to keep a student’s record active from form to form has saved me considerable time,” said Williams.
The ability to save particular students as "favorites" allows staff to more readily access and maintain key student groups simultaneously. “This allows us to perform necessary tasks more effectively without having to access the student’s paper files,” she said.
The new interface also allows you to set up the screen sizes, colors and shading the way you like it, and save the settings for future sessions, said Williams. “It is very user friendly and customizable!”
To learn more about the new Colleague 4.3 user interface, attend one of the training sessions offered soon!
Preparing for disaster with Citizen Preparedness Program
Are you and your family prepared for a natural, artificial or technological disaster? Did you know that in the event of a disaster, FEMA recommends that each citizen should be ready to be self-sufficient for a minimum of three days? Did you know that only 1% of our nation's population is a trained responder?
The goal of the Community College Citizen Preparedness Program (3CP2) is to train U.S. citizens through the nation's community colleges on specific protective actions to save lives and minimize injuries after a disaster and before arrival of first responders.
Jeff Bates, professor, and Allen Frederick and Tim Butcher, adjunct instructors in Environmental Science, Safety & Health recently completed the 3CP2 train-the-trainer program. This FEMA and AACC initiative provides a two-hour Citizen Preparedness training program designed to educate community members on how to be ready for disasters. If you are interested in having this training provided to a campus or community group, or in the classroom, please contact Jeff Bates at firstname.lastname@example.org.
