|CSC Signs Agreement with Nursing School; President's Contract Extended
|The Carl Sandburg College Board of Trustees has given its blessing to another agreement with another institution of higher learning, that will help its students continue their studies with them.
The CSC board Tuesday night approved an agreement with the Methodist College of Nursing in Peoria, that will allow CSC students to stay in Galesburg if they so desire for a third year, then transfer into the Methodist online degree program.
CSC Vice President Doctor Lori Sundberg tells WGIL Nursing Program Coordinator Jan Lundeen and Methodist officials were just looking for a way to make it easier for CSC students to join that program. "They've come up with an idea whereby our students can stay here for one more year, and do a year's worth of work with us," Sundberg said. "That will be counted as their third year, and then they'll go into the (Methodist College) online program and complete their last year."
Sundberg calls the arrangement "a win-win situation." CSC has what's called an articulation agreement with Western Illinois University as well, and works with other nearby community colleges as well. The new agreement takes effect immediately.
The CSC Board Tuesday night also approved an extension of the contract of college president Tom Schmidt that keeps him employed with the institution until June of 2013 along with contract extensions for other administrators there.
The board also learned that tuition rates for new students will go up $4 per credit hour starting in the fall, to $131, in accordance with a plan adopted last year basing tuition rates on per capita costs.
And, members formally approved issuing $4.5 million in bonds that, as discussed in previous meetings, will be used to help fund the renovation of the Performing Arts area at the new Charger Community Center in Carthage, and help fund the college's Strategic Technology Endowment Fund.
