Mission:
Securing
the Community
Police, fire and emergency medical personnel
have a new resource at their disposal with the
opening of the Owens Community College Center
for Emergency Preparedness. Located on 110
sprawling acres, this regional facility provides an
area for first responders to practice rescue and
recovery maneuvers on full-size training props
in a controlled environment.
“The mission of the Center for Emergency
Preparedness is to provide first responders and
students with training opportunities that support
classroom learning through the use of state-ofthe-art educational resources,” said Wayne Seely,
Assistant Professor of Law Enforcement.
Wayne Seely
Nearly 1,000 students trained at the facility from
June 1 to November 30. The students represented
20 agencies, including the U.S. Dept. of Health
and Human Services (Chicago office), the National
Guard Military Police Unit (Toledo) and the City of
Findlay Fire Department.
The Center For Emergency
Preparedness Includes:
• A gas station training prop
The multi-million dollar facility can provide a full
array of training situations thanks to its multitude
of training props. In addition to a mock city
comprised of prefabricated buildings, the facility
includes a gas station training prop, a railroad
tank car fire trainer, a tractor-trailer tanker fire
trainer and an aircraft fire prop, among others.
The facility will also include an emergency
operations center with classrooms and
laboratories and a maintenance/storage facility.
Over the next decade, the need for professionals
trained to handle emergency situations is expected
to grow by up to 25 percent. The $20.5 million
Center for Emergency Preparedness will provide
training to help first responders meet this increase.

Nearly 1,000 community members and friends
of Owens attended the Center for Emergency
Preparedness’s grand opening, which showcased
more than a dozen first responder agencies in
action-packed demonstrations.
The facility’s donated FedEx Boeing 727 aircraft prop allows first responders
to conduct realistic, hands-on training in scenarios ranging from bomb and
drug searches to hazardous material emergencies and hostage situations.

Education
We built it; they came. Since the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new
Community Education and Wellness Center on the Findlay-area Campus in
March, companies are looking to Owens more than ever for their event needs.
One company, Ball Corporation, has already held several events, including
a corporate conference, at the new center.
“We were one of the first companies to use the Center,” said Tom Martin,
Plant Manager at Ball Corporation. “The business community has
benefited from this investment.”

The shop bays feature state-of-the-art technology for hands-on learning. The two classrooms are equipped with innovative computer and
multimedia capability, as well as network and Internet access. The computer laboratories have the latest in computing resources for business
and industry training instruction. The Multipurpose Room can accommodate more than 1,300 people and features on-site catering and the
latest in innovative computer, lighting and multimedia capability. And the Wellness Center serves as a multipurpose cardiovascular and fitness

compliance training at the Center.
The $4.2 million, 24,772 square-foot facility
houses two shop bays, two computer laboratories,
two traditional classrooms, a tiered classroom, a
Multipurpose Room and a Wellness Center – all
with WiFi.
“We have a mission to provide education to
the entire community,” says Steve Hillard,
Director of Community and Corporate
Education. “This building has amazing
potential for corporate education, training
and community events.”
Wireless Internet service allows clients to use
laptops in conjunction with the material being
presented during their training sessions, a bonus
feature many businesses are looking for.
Approximately 30 training events were held
at the Center in 2007, including events for
Whirlpool and Cooper Tire. Nearly 1,000
students participated in these events.

Mission:
Involving Students
With more than 50 clubs and organizations and seven Ohio Community
College Athletic Conference sports, Owens has an extra-curricular activity
for almost every student.
And if a student can’t find a group they are interested in, new clubs
are forming all the time. Nine new clubs started up in 2007 alone.
“Owens offers a wide range of clubs and organizations in health
technology, education, activities, honor societies and special interest
areas, so there is something for everyone,” said John Byers, Student
Activities Coordinator.

Juggling school, work, families and extra activities isn’t always easy, but Byers
says the reward is worth it. “The clubs and organizations at Owens offer
students a great opportunity to be able to meet new friends, network
within the College community, and develop a
multitude of leadership skills,” said Byers.
In addition to meeting people, building leadership
skills and staying active, participating allows
students to give back to the community. Every
year, Owens clubs, teams and organizations raise
thousands of dollars and volunteer hundreds of
hours for local causes.
In 2007, almost every organization gave back to
the community in some way. Student Government
volunteered at WTOL 11 on Election Night,
registered more than 50 students to vote and
raised money for Relay for Life and Make-A-Wish.
The Health Information Technology Student
Association, the Student Association for Young
Children, the Student Physical Therapist Assistant
Organization and the Student Nurses Association
collected toiletries, clothes and toys for various
organizations. And the Owens Environmental
Club, the Black Student Union and Students
Involved held other fundraisers. The athletic
teams also got on board with several of the teams
volunteering their time and collecting items for
local organizations.
“Participating in a club or organization or on a
team gives students the opportunity to connect to
the community at-large, helping various charities
and outreach programs that the students have
a passion for,” Byers said. “It’s a win-win for
students and the community as both gain valuable
resources. Students get to experience the joy in
the gift of service to these charitable organizations
while at the same time developing their own
unique leadership style.”

Mission:
Involving Students
With more than 50 clubs and organizations and seven Ohio Community
College Athletic Conference sports, Owens has an extra-curricular activity
for almost every student.
And if a student can’t find a group they are interested in, new clubs
are forming all the time. Nine new clubs started up in 2007 alone.
“Owens offers a wide range of clubs and organizations in health
technology, education, activities, honor societies and special interest
areas, so there is something for everyone,” said John Byers, Student
Activities Coordinator.

Juggling school, work, families and extra activities isn’t always easy, but Byers
says the reward is worth it. “The clubs and organizations at Owens offer
students a great opportunity to be able to meet new friends, network
within the College community, and develop a
multitude of leadership skills,” said Byers.
In addition to meeting people, building leadership
skills and staying active, participating allows
students to give back to the community. Every
year, Owens clubs, teams and organizations raise
thousands of dollars and volunteer hundreds of
hours for local causes.
In 2007, almost every organization gave back to
the community in some way. Student Government
volunteered at WTOL 11 on Election Night,
registered more than 50 students to vote and
raised money for Relay for Life and Make-A-Wish.
The Health Information Technology Student
Association, the Student Association for Young
Children, the Student Physical Therapist Assistant
Organization and the Student Nurses Association
collected toiletries, clothes and toys for various
organizations. And the Owens Environmental
Club, the Black Student Union and Students
Involved held other fundraisers. The athletic
teams also got on board with several of the teams
volunteering their time and collecting items for
local organizations.
“Participating in a club or organization or on a
team gives students the opportunity to connect to
the community at-large, helping various charities
and outreach programs that the students have
a passion for,” Byers said. “It’s a win-win for
students and the community as both gain valuable
resources. Students get to experience the joy in
the gift of service to these charitable organizations
while at the same time developing their own
unique leadership style.”

relations. Instead, he made a life-altering decision.
“For me, the food in Europe was just as memorable
as seeing all the sights,” Gall said. “At that point,
I finally figured out that cooking was my mission
in life. It was something I truly enjoyed and wanted
to keep doing.”
So he completed his bachelor’s degree in
International Studies at Miami University,
but instead of working for the government
after graduation, the Toledo native registered
for culinary arts classes at Owens.

Owens Community College continues to offer products students want, evidenced by a record 20,425

“As I got closer to graduating with my bachelor’s

he said. “I was always interested in other countries

was the cuisine.”
Gall was one of a record-number of students at
Owens in 2007. Fall semester enrollment was up
6.9 percent from Fall 2006 and spring semester
enrollment was up 3.9 percent from Spring 2006.
Several of those students, like Gall, are coming to
Owens for a career change.
“If anyone is considering a change of careers,
I’d suggest they make sure it is something they

The College has a mission to promote growth

That’s what I wanted. I feel fortunate.”
In 2007, the College’s total economic impact
was more than $223 million when considering
total expenditures and using a conservative 2.1
multiplier to estimate the ripple effect through
the local economy.
Zolnai, who is employed by the City of Toledo
as a Water Control Room Operator, said Owens
gave him the chemistry, math, safety background
and practical experience needed to prepare him
for the position.
The College spent more than $96 million in

spent a total of $59 million on salaries and benefits.

houses offices for Security officers as well as grounds and warehouse personnel.
The 8,600-square-foot facility was completed in April 2007.
“Without going to Owens, I seriously doubt
I could have passed the operator’s exam and
been hired,” he said.
In construction projects in fiscal year 2007, the
College spent nearly $4 million, with a majority
of the funds allocated to the Center for Emergency
Preparedness and the Community Education
and Wellness Center.

Mission:
Supporting
our Students
Since receiving a $1.7 million grant from the U.S.
Department of Postsecondary Education to enhance and
foster student success, Owens Community College has
spent the better part of 2007 developing a staggering
student success plan.
Part of that plan includes the implementation of the
electronic portfolio project, which allows students to
store papers, photos, video clips and other items in an
electronic format.
“In addition, the e-portfolio will allow students to showcase
projects and activities that are of particular interest to
future employers,” said Mindy Gray, instructor of the
pilot study course.
Gray added that the e-portfolio project has received
much recognition not only in the state of Ohio, but
also nationally.
Other milestones in the student success initiative
include becoming a Foundations of Excellence school
and developing a new program expected to serve
2,500 students in the coming year.
“In total, by Fall 2007, this program involved
at least 120 faculty and staff, and almost
3,000 students,” said Dr. Jason Tetzloff,
Director of the College’s Student Success
Initiatives. “This program is moving the
College forward and making it a premier
educational institution and a leader
in helping students succeed.”
