For Kelly Dunne, assistant dean of academic affairs, no two days are the same at New Century College (NCC). From teaching, to advising, to working with colleagues in NCC and in academic units across the university, Dunne enjoys the variety of her work, noting, “It’s great because every day is different.”
Tameka Parker (class of 2016, childhood studies minor) is using her undergraduate degree to further her education, work and research experience. As a freshman, Parker began working with New Century College professor Pamela Garner, assisting Garner with a variety of research projects. For Tameka, this opportunity has given her a firsthand look at research and a more in depth understanding of her field of study.
For New Century College faculty member Al Fuertes, this has been a busy fall. In addition to teaching three classes (NCLC 314, 416 and 475), Fuertes put his facilitation skills to work when he delivered two international workshops and then received an award for his role in establishing the Centreville Labor Resource Center.
