The NCC Administration’s Catastrophic Mismanagement and the NCCFT’s Cost-Saving Proposals to Grow Enrollment

6 Responses

  1. A travesty of mismanagement. Lack of concern for faculty moral. Lack of integrity between departments, chairpersons, faculty, the NCCFT, and Senate. Governance has become a dictatorship. Squeezing faculty salaries and health care.
    Total disregard for the well being of student’s academic career and life.
    Not offering classes to complete degrees,no areas for social activities and no food in campus. How can you run a college without supporting student achievement activities and socialization let alone not supporting their academic goals.

  2. Enrollment declines so hire more administrators?? I deplore what’s been happening and support the 6 positions outlined above. Good work!

  3. Why isn’t the Admissions Department being held accountable for decreased enrollment? In all my years living in the communities surrounding NCC, I have never seen an admissions officer at any of the high school and/or community events.

    I applaud the efforts of the Union to address the fiscal corruption at NCC.

    1. In the NCCFT’s proposed 2025 Budget initiatives, we recommend hiring 3 more Admissions officers, preferably with bilingual skills, to bring the Admissions office back to capacity. We believe this has the potential to increase enrollment by 900 students.

  4. Perhaps it’s because I originally worked in the for profit world that I feel people should be held accountable for their failure to produce in terms of recruitment and retention. In the for profit world, if what you are doing isn’t working, you are fired. Einstein said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.” Our administrators, not just in admissions, are sorely lacking in vision. Not only do they fail to innovate, they do not adapt, proving the old cliché true: If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten. BTW, if you think I’m going to name myself so that I can be targeted for harassment and subsequent dismissal (or better yet, it’s the tool the administrators employ to get people to move on of their own volition), I’m a tad bit smarter than that.
