MLK Day celebration to feature best-selling author and scholar

DysonColumbus State’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration will be held on Tuesday, January 10 in the Conference Center Ballroom, and feature a keynote address by Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, one of the nation’s most influential authors and scholars.

Dyson is an American Book Award recipient and two time NAACP Image Award winner.  Named by Ebony as one of the hundred most influential black Americans, Dyson is the author of sixteen books, including Making Malcolm: The Myth and Meaning of Malcolm X and I May Not Get There With You: The True Martin Luther King Jr. He is a Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

Dyson has appeared on nearly every major media outlet, including The Today Show, Nightline, O’Reilly Factor, The Tavis Smiley Show, and Real Time with Bill Maher.  He is a contributing editor at Time magazine and hosts an hour-long news and talk program on National Public Radio (NPR) called The Michael Eric Dyson Show, where he analyzes today’s biggest news stories.

The Columbus State event is free and open to the public, and begins at 11 a.m. in the Center for Workforce Development in the fourth-floor Conference Center.  Performances by the Columbus State Gospel Ensemble and Ft. Hayes High School band, as well as a film clip from the movie If I Had Sneezed—the story of Dr. King’s brush with death at a 1958 book signing in Harlem—will be included in the event.

The MLK Day Celebration is co-sponsored by Columbus State, City of Columbus, The Ohio State University Hale Black Cultural Center, and the Columbus Community Relations Commission.

CPR dummies
Brigid Pack, a Work Study student in the Nursing Certificate program readies a laboratory manikin for cleaning after the end of Fall Quarter. Each manikin used in the CPR classes of Multi-Competency Health has its “face” removed for cleaning in a dishwasher, the lungs replaced, and the entire unit is then inspected for needed repairs. 




Continuous Quality Improvement at Columbus State 

Raiders are Ready—for college math!

math studentsDressed up in pirate “Raider” gear, students in the College Prep Math course at Reynoldsburg High School join their teacher Christine Rossetti for a group photo just before their winter break. From front left are: Jordan Stanley, Catie Evans, and instructor Christine Rossetti; top row: Jamyl Copeland, Tiarra Tartt, Carly Ring and Michael Sain.

Move over Dublin, Gahanna and Delaware – the Reynoldsburg Raiders have jumped aboard the Columbus State bandwagon.  Funded by an Educational Service Center grant, the east side school district is piloting a new math program designed by Columbus State faculty.  The mission?  Boost the retention rate of these students when they get to college.

"Students who take lots of developmental math courses in college are less likely to finish," said Kelly Hogan, professor of Developmental Education.  "It takes them longer to get up to speed, it uses up financial aid, and they can become discouraged."

Reynoldsburg  promoted College Prep Math last year to their high school juniors who were interested in attending college, and used the Compass test to determine their placement.  This fall, 75 now-seniors are enrolled in the computer-based program.

“The pilot has been very successful thus far," said instructor Christine Rossetti.  "There has been talk of as many as fifteen other high schools implementing the program next year."

And the winner is…

“Cougar Challenge" is the winning name for the Staff Advisory Council’s upcoming 5K running race, to be held April 28 at the Bridgeview Golf Course. The name was submitted by Joy Livergood, advisor in Career and Technical Programs, who wins a gift certificate from Dick’s Sporting Goods!
