Building off work it has done over the past two years, LBCC has been invited, through a highly competitive national selection process, to join the Pathways Project led by the American Association of Community Colleges, one of 30 colleges across America with a shared commitment to implement guided academic and career pathways for all students.

Partners include Achieving the Dream, Inc., the Aspen Institute, the Center for Community College Student Engagement, the Community College Research Center, Jobs for the Future, the National Center for Inquiry and Improvement, and Public Agenda. Partners have participated actively in the college selection process and also are substantively involved in designing a model series of pathways institutes, each focusing on key elements in a fully scaled pathway model for community colleges.

LBCC Encouraging High School Seniors & GED Grads to Apply for Oregon Promise

Linn-Benton Community College is encouraging all eligible 2016 high school and GED graduates to apply for the Oregon Promise starting Nov. 1.

Applications are available online at www.OregonPromise.org.

Oregon Promise provides a minimum of $1,000 of tuition support for students who are graduating high school or earning a GED in the spring or summer of 2016, have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher (a GED score requirement is still being established), have been an Oregon resident for 12 months, and who intend to attend community college in fall of 2016.

Students are being encouraged to apply early. The program is first-come, first served, with demand expected to exceed the funding available. Those who apply prior to funds being exhausted will get support.

The program covers tuition that is not covered by federal and state financial aid grants. Most students will be required to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, and accept all grants they qualify for.

Non U.S. citizens who meet Oregon Promise requirements will apply for the Oregon Promise as part of Oregon's Tuition Equity program through a separate application.

LBCC will offer an open computer lab on Tuesday, Nov. 3 on its Albany Campus so that any high school students attending class at the college can apply. The college will also be sending email messages via its prospective student communication system to 16,000 people who have expressed an interest in in the college in hopes of reaching as many high school seniors as possible.

The college met with 36 representatives of its service district’s high schools and youth support organizations on Tuesday, encouraging them to spread the word to seniors to apply starting Nov. 1.

Free Showings of film “Project 22” Nov. 6 & 7

Two free showings of the documentary film "Project 22" will be held Friday, Nov. 6 and Saturday, Nov. 7 at 4:30 p.m. at Linn-Benton Community College’s Russell Tripp Performance Center, Takena Hall, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.

The film chronicles the 22-day, 6,500-mile journey of two combat-wounded veterans, Daniel Egbert and Doc King, who set out across America to raise awareness of the high rate of suicides amongst veterans. 

Spurred by estimations that 22 veterans die by suicide each day, Project 22 includes interviews with veterans who have contemplated or attempted suicide, but who found help, support and hope in various ways.

The film includes interviews with leading researchers in the fields of traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress, mental health clinicians and educators, and leading experts in warrior culture and combat stress.

Project 22 was entirely crowd-funded. The film was produced by Medicinal Missions, which works to restore a warrior culture that supports holistic healing and life-long personal growth, while empowering veterans to serve as community leaders and mentors.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments provided after the film.

For more information, visit the Project 22 web site at medicinalmissions.com, or contact LBCC Veteran’s Club advisor Lewis Franklin, 541-917-4542.

NSH Gallery Features Exhibit by Benton Center Art Faculty

An exhibit of work by three art instructors from Linn-Benton Community College’s Benton Center will be shown in LBCC’s North Santiam Gallery, 6500 Pacific Blvd SW, Albany through December 11. 

A reception and gallery talk will be held Thursday, October 29, from 3 to 4 p.m. in the NSH second floor atrium.

The exhibit represents a wide range of artistic approaches brought to the Benton Center art department by the three artists; from the colorful and diverse paintings by Mark Allison, to the expressive, monumental mixed media drawings of Andrew Myers, to the delicate, sophisticated, and whimsical ceramics of Renee McKitterick.

McKitterick is the new ceramics instructor at the Benton Center, coming to Corvallis most recently from New Mexico, where she completed her MFA in 2012. This summer she did a residency in Jingdezhen, China studying ceramic and glazing techniques. Most of McKitterick’s work in this exhibit, which includes pottery, sculpture, and installation, was created during her time in China.

An art instructor at LBCC for over 20 years, Allison’s work ranges widely from abstract, geometric patterns to painterly landscapes. His concern for composition and color is consistently strong. Included in this exhibit are works in watercolor, gouache, acrylic and oil paint.

Myers teaches classes in drawing at LBCC and OSU. His mixed media works fuse drawing with installation and sculpture, building his creations by drawing, arranging, re-drawing, and re-arranging elements into assembled constructions. Included in this exhibit are three large works, which Myers installed directly to the walls of North Santiam Hall.

North Santiam Hall Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
