2016-2017 President's Report

reduction, but possible mid-year decreases in state or local appropriations or tuition and fees as well, without minimizing the outstanding education we offer our students. There remains a great uncertainty of the state’s fiscal condition in fiscal year 2018 and beyond. Despite the fact that we are making sacrifices on our campus to adjust accordingly, I remain

as excited as ever about the future of this great institution. After all, this isn’t the first time ECCC has faced budgetary challenges and I’m quite sure it will not be the last. I’m confident we will emerge from these challenges a better and more efficient institution. With difficult challenges come great opportunities, and East Central Community College and its faculty, staff, students, alumni, trustees, and supporters are prepared to turn these funding challenges into opportunities to better meet our commitments to Student Success, Teaching & Learning, Community Partnerships, Resource Planning & Development and Communication. Great things are happening every day at ECCC.

We are proud of our accomplishments this past year as we continue to fulfill our mission and pursue our vision to be “Nationally Recognized” and “Locally Preferred.” We hope you enjoy this look back at the 2016-2017 year at your community college.

Dr. Billy W. Stewart President
