Columbus State to Offer Nexus Degree in Film Production

Columbus State University was approved by the Board of Regents today to offer the first ever nexus degree in film production. With courses to be offered as early as spring 2019, the 60-credit-hour degree emphasizes hands-on learning to prepare students for Georgia’s high-demand film industry.

“This new degree is validation of our premier role in preparing and credentialing workers for Georgia’s fastest growing industry,” said CSU President Chris Markwood.  “With the help of our community partners, CSU looks forward to growing our film program even more soon.”

In cooperation with the Columbus Film Office and the Georgia Film Academy, students will be placed in experiential learning opportunities on movie productions in Georgia, and when possible, in the city of Columbus. Additionally, students may be placed on production sets for national television spots and productions secured by the Columbus Film Office and Georgia Film Academy.

The experiential learning opportunity will fulfill six credit hours of the degree requirement, with an additional 42 credit hours in general education and 12 credit hours in upper division coursework that focuses on the skills and knowledge needed in the film industry. Curriculum is being designed in collaboration with industry experts to ensure it meets specific requirements for the high-demand jobs.

Columbus State University, along with Albany State University, were the first to be approved for new nexus degrees by the Board of Regents today. Nexus degrees are 60-credit-hour credentials that emphasize hands-on experiential learning, skilled knowledge, and connections with industry in high-demand fields.

While Columbus State’s nexus degree is in film production, Albany State will offer nexus degrees in blockchain with machine learning and blockchain with data analytics. According to the University System of Georgia, other fields under consideration for future USG programs include cybersecurity and financial technology.

Pasaquan Director Mike McFalls Co-curates Exhibit Opening in New York

Mike McFalls, director of Pasaquan, and Annie Moye, Pasaquan Preservation Society chair, are co-curating a St. EOM exhibit that opens September 26 in New York. The co-curators will use research and art collected in the Columbus State University Archives, and they were assisted by CSU student intern, Yun Praught.

“Yun’s assistance in managing the collection has been instrumental with her work ensuring much of the collection is easily accessible,” said David Owings, university archivist. “This greatly facilitated the selection of works for the upcoming exhibit, but more broadly helps open the collection to other researchers who may be interested in Pasaquan.”

“Because of Yun, we were able to select and locate images, identify sizes, and more in a timely manner and with ease,” said Moye. “The CSU Archives staff was also supportive and helped us prepare certain works for public display.”

The Pasaquan exhibit will be the first exhibit in a new space called 1B, which is located in New York City’s East Village. Owned by Institute 193 in Lexington, Kentucky, 1B will focus on bringing southern artists to the attention of the art world.

CSU Provides More Opportunities for Dual Enrollment Students

Columbus State University’s is expanding offerings for its tuition-free Dual Enrollment Program as more teens discover the benefits of taking college courses while still in high school.

Dual Enrollment is a state-sponsored program that allows students at eligible high schools to take approved college-level coursework for credit toward both high school and college graduation requirements. Through the program, students routinely earn enough credits for an associate’s degree before finishing high school. There are no tuition costs for students accepted into the program.

At Columbus State University, students now have access to more than 100 different courses a year.

“We continue to look for ways to better serve students and parents interested in dual enrollment,” said Tina Butcher, CSU’s associate provost. “Many students come onto campus, but this fall we are also teaching several courses at Harris County High School, and at least one at St. Anne-Pacelli High School.”

The program has grown in recent years.

“Parents are often a driver for this when they understand how significant the cost-savings can be,” Butcher said. “There is still time for students to sign up for this program. They simply need contact the guidance counselor at their school to learn more.”

The Columbus State University men’s basketball team will kick off the 2018-2019 academic year with a trip to Costa Rica. Ten team members, including three new players, will head abroad on the first-of-its-kind trip on Aug. 5. The team’s itinerary includes a series of international and college games, as well as volunteer work to teach a youth basketball camp and revitalize a school.

“This is a way that we can find out about our team early on,” said Robert Moore, head men’s basketball coach. “It is about getting our guys together to see how they bond. It will also be a great experience for them. We try to teach them, not just about basketball, but about life.”

The trip has mostly been funded with donations from local businesses and supporters. Donations for travel expenses can still be made here.

McCollough and Thomas Named Rising Stars in the Community by Young Professionals and Columbus and the Valley Magazine

Associate professors Dr. Chris McCollough (Communication) and Dr. Joy Thomas (Health and Excercise Science) have been named among five 2018 Rising Stars in the Community by the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals and Columbus and the Valley Magazine.  The recognition is meant to identify a rising group of young leaders in the community who are helping to enhance the quality of civic, economic, and community life in the region. Both McCollough and Thomas do so in their respective fields, and have a healthy history of collaboration that brings them to this shared achievement.

Dr. McCollough earned the recognition for his past and current work in bringing his public relations classes into the community and working with many of the nonprofit organizations that collaborate with the Department of Communication and the Non Profit and Civic Engagement (NPACE) Center. Among the key projects he and his students have completed have been collaboratively promoting Pasaquan, helping Marion County revitalize its economic prospects through promotions and community relations, supporting the university’s current collaborative partnership with Muscogee County’s School District, and ongoing work with organizations like Ferst Foundation for Early Childhood LiteracyFeeding the ValleyThe American Cancer Society, and Habitat for Humanity.

Dr. Thomas’s work shares a parallel in bringing her classes into the community as her students in health and exercise science address issues of community health disparity. Her efforts in bridging gaps in community health disparity have led her to serving as the Director of the Center for Healthy Disparity and Community-Based Research. The center offers support in helping underserved counties in Georgia to meet community health needs in diverse ways through collaborative work with local non-profit organizations. Thomas and her staff have recently expanded to providing support to 28 counties in 2018 from the 16 counties previously served. The work of the center opens learning opportunities for her students in the classroom and through individual internships.

Mentioned earlier, McCollough and Thomas have collaborated in the past and continue to do so now. In 2015, they partnered with professor Rylan Steele in the Art Department to support and promote the Big Brother, Big Sisters mentorship program of the local Boys and Girls Club through participation in the mentorship program, photovoice documentation of the work of students with participants in the program, and putting on an exhibition of the photography in UpTown Columbus, which students promoted and put on to the public.

Recently, McCollough and Thomas built on their past collaboration to get together with professor Nicholas McMillan in the Art Department to provide support to one of the many counties Thomas supports through on site health disparities and public relations coursework, while also providing a fresh face to the Center through the work of graphic design students, and allowing students to build experience in venue design, organization promotion, and event planning and promotion.

The shared work of the colleague’s three classes will go live in fall 2018, and represents the kind of interdisciplinary collaboration among faculty unique to CSU that yield results which improve community life in the region. McCollough and Thomas continue to collaborate and are working to identify additional projects which will no doubt keep them at the forefront of working to improve community life in the region.

Local Businesses Provide Suits to Veterans through Columbus State University’s Military Enrollment Office

Dusty Amenta, an Army veteran and accounting major at Columbus State University, recently received a full professional makeover, thanks to JCPenney and CSU’s military enrollment office.

“This is greatly welcomed!” said Amenta. “As a mom and an Army wife, it has taken me eight years to graduate. I haven’t had much time to do things like this.”

Amenta, who will graduate in December, received a free suit, shoes, haircut, and makeup makeover from JCPenney as part of CSU’s Suits for Veterans program. She was shown the royal treatment at JCPenney. Staff escorted her around the store, helping her select the perfect suit and ensuring she made it to her to appointments at the salon and makeup counter. Amenta’s friends even joined in on the effort to make Amenta’s day extra special; they watched Amenta’s daughter so she could enjoy her makeover.

The experience was coordinated by CSU’s office of military enrollment, a department at CSU that is focused on serving the needs of military-affiliated students.

“We strive to do whatever we can to help our military-affiliated students have a smooth college experience,” said Susan Lovell, Director of Military Enrollment at CSU. “One of the frequent issues that we hear is our students do not have suits for graduation or job interviews. We’ve reached out to businesses in the community and have found that they are more than happy to help our military families as they prepare for their next step.”

Chancellors, E&S Suit Warehouse, and JCPenney have all donated suits for the new program. So far, six military-affiliated students have received suits.

16 Students Attend CSU CCSSC Camps with Support from Pratt & Whitney

Sixteen students from Muscogee County School District are enhancing their skills in science, technology, engineering, and math at Columbus State University Coca Cola Space Science Center (CCSSC) summer camps, thanks to a generous donation from Pratt & Whitney.

“We are happy to partner with Pratt & Whitney on this important program,” said Dr. Shawn Cruzen, Executive Director of the CCSSC. “We believe our core mission includes making new opportunities for local students to train for, and access, careers in science and engineering, which this effort fits perfectly.”

The camps – “Space Robotics” for ages 10-13 and “Drone Engineering” for ages 14-16 – provide youth with the hands-on STEM experiences to equip them with practical problem-solving skills that make them more competitive for the technical workforce. Pratt & Whitney sponsored scholarships for 16 students. Participating students were selected from local schools based on applications and teacher recommendations.

Held June 18-22, Space Robotics camp allowed campers to build robots using controllers, sensors, actuators, radio communications and power supplies. Drone Engineering camp, which began on Monday and continues through Friday, is an advanced camp that provides a more challenging experience for campers to learn how to design, build, and operate a quad copter using 3D designing software, 3D printers, soldering irons and more.

“At Pratt & Whitney, we are focused on innovation and performance – it’s how we develop, manufacture and maintain the world’s best and most advanced aircraft engines. We support programs like Space Robotics Camp and Drone Engineering Camp to help develop the next generation of STEM leaders,” Tom Bode, General Manager, Pratt & Whitney Columbus Engine Center.

Funding for the students’ summer camp tuition was provided as part of a larger donation from Pratt & Whitney to the CCSSC. The donation will also allow CCSSC to add a new planetarium show this fall.
