8 NOC Tonkawa Cookie exchange set for Dec. 7 Happy Holidays Happy Holidays NOC Regents Elect Officers At their Nov. 16 meeting at NOC Stillwater, Northern Oklahoma College Regents elected officers, heard a presentation by Business Division Chair Cara Beth Johnson and approved a request for the college to change to a self-insured group health plan. Jeff Cowan, Ponca City, will chair the Regents. Linda Brown, Ponca City, will serve as vice chair and Chad Dillingham, Enid, will act as secretary. Johnson told the Regents that NOC was the first community college in the state to be accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Northern offers four degree programs with four additional options: associate in science degrees in Business Administration, a transfer program; Computer Science, which has grown tremendously; Enterprise Development, offered through the State Regents; and an associate in applied science degree in Business Management. In four of the past five years, NOC s Governor s Cup Business Plan Competition teams have placed in the top six of all Oklahoma college teams in the Small Business Division. The Regents approved a request to change to a self-insured group plan as participants in the Oklahoma Higher Education Employees Interlocal Group (OKHEEI), authorized Evans to delegate authority to the Chief Financial Officer to make decisions regarding OKHEEI Board of Trustees matters and approved the creation of an agency special account fund to administer OKHEEI premiums, claims and expenses plus a budget revision to include this fund. Dr. Pam Stinson, vice president for academic affairs, updated the Strategic Planning report regarding Northern s measures for assuring faculty and staff professional development and accessibility to students. Personnel actions included the hiring of Taelor Turner, assistant coach for the NOC Enid women s basketball team. Anita Simpson, vice president for financial affairs, reported total net assets of $8,866, for the fiscal year and presented October financial reports for the Regents approval. Regents also approved monthly allocation requests totaling $180,000 for various projects at Enid and at Tonkawa, as well as requests for November purchases, including renovation of Memorial Student Union and a new fire alarm system for Threlkeld and Boehme halls, all at Tonkawa. Present were regents Jeff Cowan, Ponca City; Stan Brownlee, Enid; and Chad Dillingham, Enid. The Board of Regents will meet Dec. 14 at NOC Tonkawa.

14 Earn college credit while traveling abroad with NOC Global Education programs Welcome back to the new academic year. I hope your first few days at Northern have been fantastic and you are looking forward to a productive semester, said Dean of Global Education Wade Watkins. As a student at NOC, you're a part of a historic institution continually ranked as one of the top community colleges in the nation but we are also ranked as one of the top community colleges to send students abroad on short-term study abroad programs. We've sent 1,000+ students overseas to more than 30 countries on all seven continents. Our programs allow students to broaden themselves academically, personally, and professionally, and earn college credits towards a degree. NOC study abroad program courses include: Humanities, Service and Leadership, Lab Science, Nursing, Social Science (history, economics, politics, etc.), International Studies, and Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Management. Students can typically earn 3-6 credit hours by participating on a day study abroad program. These experiences are fast-paced, but the learning opportunities are seemingly endless. Our 2017 Study Abroad trips are as follows: Italy & Greece, Scotland & England, Costa Rica, Peru and Ireland I ll be happy to visit with you or your parents regarding any of these exciting travel opportunities. However, spaces are limited and will go quickly, so consider if a study abroad program might be for you and pay your deposit to travel with us - in a few cases (Italy/Greece, England/Scotland, and Peru), there's a $200 back-to-school discount if your deposit is paid by August 31. The best place to learn about what NOC is offering for 2017 and beyond is on our Global Education website: I hope you embrace these opportunities and consider traveling abroad with NOC; whether you'll be stepping outside of your comfort zone to experience another culture for the first time or looking to gain valuable experience you can put on your resume. Best of luck...hope to hear from you, Watkins said. You may contact Watkins at or at or 1118 W. Hall of Fame, Stillwater.
