There is nothing more important than for the College of Continuing and Professional Education (CCPE) to be viewed as an asset to the campus, making contributions that are enabled by our college’s unique capabilities. It is also critical that we be integral, not peripheral, to the campus mission. Here are some examples of the ways in which CCPE contributes in addition to the financial contributions we make.
- Special Sessions partnerships with academic departments are at the core of CCPE's goals and programs.
- CCPE constantly seeks ways to contribute to Academic Affairs priorities by providing services and staff, in addition to financial support. Recent partnership examples include the Student Success Initiatives, Summer Language Institute, the Latino Leadership Academy, the North Long Beach Redevelopment Project/New Media Center, the CSU India Education Initiative, Los Angeles County Technology Week, JumpStart Math and English programs, and the Writing Proficiency Exam Test Prep Workshop.
- CCPE is eager to provide its services in support of college grants, contracts, and other initiatives. We have developed an excellent relationship with the Office of University Research and External Support for this purpose. The goal is to provide cost effective services which contribute to the funding success and long-term sustainability of projects. Our participation may include media production, marketing, graphic design, administration (registration, etc.), program support, and facilities.
- CCPE's marketing, distance learning, and technology expertise is frequently utilized by the campus.
- CCPE has developed a relationship with the Center for Community Engagement, which is of significant mutual benefit. We have attended CCE functions to connect with potential faculty resources and discover program ideas, and we will establish links between our two web sites.
- CCPE is developing an increasingly close relationship with University Relations and Development. Numerous opportunities for collaboration exist, with priority placed on contributing to the Comprehensive Campaign. While CCPE is not held to the same level of external funding productivity as the other colleges, we have committed ourselves and our unique capabilities to this important campus goal.
Increasing collaboration with Alumni Affairs includes the sharing of databases, enabling CCPE to communicate directly with alumni. Alumni learn how their relationship with CSULB is enriched by participating in CCPE programs. We envision many more opportunities to collaborate and contribute to the goals of Alumni Affairs while increasing CCPE’s visibility in the community.
We enjoy a strong and very positive relationship with Associate Vice President Toni Beron and her office, ensuring that our materials and messages are consistent with the entire campus. CCPE often supports University Relations and Development through video production and other services.
- CCPE's Advanced Media Production Center (AMP) provides approximately $400,000 of quid pro quo services to the campus annually (in lieu of CCPE General Fund reimbursement obligations). AMP’s service to the campus falls into the following broad categories:
- Extensive support for instruction, particularly for the students in the Television concentration within Broadcast Journalism
- Web and television coverage of regular and ad hoc campus events, including Commencement, via the “Beach TV” dedicated cable channel
- Webcasting/hosting of on-demand, online video for campus clients including the Library
- Production of public service announcements for many campus groups
- Production of various training, informational, documentary, and marketing videos on behalf of departments ranging from the President’s Office to Facilities Management
- Lower-level activity including two-way video conference support, media duplication, and consultation
- All CCPE managers and many staff members are actively involved in serving the campus through participation on search panels, planning groups, technology committees, Staff Council, the President’s Commission on the Status of Women, and many other groups. We continue to look for opportunities to know and be known by our campus colleagues.
