Annette Parker’s presidential installation in Mankato on Thursday night provided an opportunity for the new leader to share her vision for South Central College.

More than 40 Faribault residents, including Mayor John Jasinski, attended.

In her remarks to the more than 340 in attendance, Parker spoke about the college’s future opportunities that will lead to success:

Innovative Approaches to Enhance Learner and Community Success: South Central College will increase the success of all learners, including diverse and underserved populations.

Comprehensive Workforce Education Options: South Central College will work with the MnSCU system, K-12 partners and industry to expand and enhance the educational pathways available to learners and employers state-wide. These will include an organized integration of modularized instruction, competency-based credits and degrees, credit for prior experience and learning, industry-recognized credentials and applied learning opportunities such as apprenticeships or on-the-job training.

Online Program Optimization: South Central College will build upon its history of offering online programs. In the future, the college will further expand its online program to provide increasingly individualized learning and advising.

New Financial and Administrative Models: South Central College will work with MnSCU in redesigning financial and administrative models that reward collaboration, drive efficiencies and strengthen each institution’s ability to provide access to extraordinary education for all Minnesotans.
