Vet Net Ally Seminar
On March 24 at Coastline’s Garden Grove Center, Coastline faculty and staff participated in Vet Net Ally, a professional development training seminar presented by Dr. Marshall Thomas, Director of Veterans Services at CSULB.  Vet Net Ally is an educational program to provide awareness of and sensitivity to the needs of military and veterans students in higher education. This was the second professional development program offered by Coastline to faculty and staff this year to help create a welcoming and supportive campus environment for our military and veteran students.
The 46 attendees included 12 faculty members, Dean of Instruction at Newport Beach Center, Tom Neal, and several classified staff from Coastline, as well as participants from Orange Coast College, Golden West College, and the District Office.  A panel consisting of five Coastline student-veterans discussed their personal experiences with transitioning to civilian life and responded to several questions from faculty and staff. The audience was very engaged in the presentation and the feedback was positive. 
Staff member, Jason Ward said, “Vet Net Ally provided me with detailed information, specific tools and strategies to create a safe, welcoming and supportive environment for our military students. The training is invaluable not only to directly serving our students, but also in establishing a visible network of support and assistance. I strongly encourage all Coastliners to attend future VET NET seminars.” 
The student panelists conveyed their high regard for Coastline’s one-on-one support services, highlighting Coastline’s Veterans Resource Centers (VRC’s) as two of the best VRC’s they have used during their higher education endeavors. 
Vet Net Ally decals were given to the participants to display in their workspace and demonstrate they are “allies” with our student veterans. 
If you were unable to attend this valuable training, another is being hosted by GWC on Thursday, April 27 from 12-4 p.m.  Please email for information or inquiries about Veterans Resources at Coastline.  Thanks to all who participated. 
Coastline Community College
Public Safety Update
Coastline Community College’s Public Safety Department strives to provide
visitors to our centers the safest possible environment in which to work and study. In support of that mission, here are some of the strides we have made in the past year.

The college-wide public address (PA) system is now fully operational. Emergency announcements can be made from pre-designated telephones at any of the four centers.  Announcements can be made college-wide, individually by center, or to individual floors within the centers. Having the ability to make announcements to all or parts of the college in the event of an emergency greatly enhances safety for Coastline students and staff.

Additionally, two new emergency phone towers have been installed in the parking lots of two of the centers.  At the Newport Beach Center, a second phone has been added at the south end of the parking lot to complement the existing telephone at the north side of the lot.  A phone has also been installed at the College Center in the north parking lot across from the main entrance and ATM machine. The Garden Grove Center will see two new emergency phones installed on the solar carports—one at the east side of the lot nearest the building and the second on the west side further out in the parking lot. All phones will be monitored all day and night by a security monitoring service capable of notifying Coastline Public Safety, police, or fire personnel in the event of an emergency.

Finally, on April 18, 2017, the Public Safety Department, in conjunction with the Title IX Coordinator’s Office and the Associated Student Government, hosted Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention training held in four 2-hour sessions at the Newport Beach Center. The training was offered district-wide as part of other activities held by Coastline College for Sexual Assault Awareness month.
RIBBA 3 Art Event and
Community Art Fair
The Coastline Art Gallery hosted the Third Annual RIBBA event Saturday evening, April 8th, at Newport Center. The event was a great success with more than 160 artists participating and some 400 guests attending the display and the fair.

All submissions for participation in the exhibition had to follow one simple rule: All work must be submitted in the "RIBBA" frame from Ikea!

In conjunction with the RIBBA 3 showcase, CoastlineArt Gallery also invited artists from the community to exhibit a diverse variety of arts and crafts in the open atrium at the Center.

The Art Gallery will be featuring the RIBBA 3 artworksTuesday through Thursday, Noon to 4 p.m., until April 27.
And stay tuned... RIBBA 4 is just around the corner!

Military Education, Corporate Training & Business Development
What is MECTBD?

A little History:
The Division of Military Education, Corporate Training & Business Development is the umbrella for departments and programs within Coastline’s Ancillary Contract Education Wing. One department within MECTBD is Business Development & Technology Solutions (informally referred to as BDATS). This particular department provides Coastline and the Division with significant research, development, and production of technology-related programs and services. Many of the department’s new and on-going endeavors are College Support (non-revenue generating) activities such as:
Banner / Canvas Integration 
MECTBD programmer (Peter Nguyen) and instructional designers (Sylvia Amito’elau, Meg Yanalunas, and Mark Worden), in concert with the Faculty Success Center, have been very busy with the Banner / Canvas Integration. This dynamic team collaborated on the design and development of programs needed so that communication with Banner was seamless. They spent countless hours in meetings with faculty to help ensure faculty needs were being met during transition. 
MECTBD is currently putting the final touches on our internally designed and developed CyberAttack video game. An Orange County Career Pathways Grant provided the funding for this College-Support Project. When completed in June 2017, the game will be promoted and offered free to all high schools in Orange County. The goal of this game is to introduce potential Cyber Security Students to college-level placement testing exercises while playing an exciting game of cyber warfare.
Distance Learning Proctor Database (DLPD)
MECTBD was called upon to assist with the evaluation process of the DLPD and to program the requested changes. This database assists in coordinating the logistics between incarcerated students and their proctors. With the recent assessment of the incarcerated program and potential alignment with the military proctor and NCPACE databases, MECTBD programmers have an opportunity to leverage and improve proctor tracking systems for greater efficiency and potential.

Read more about the services offered by MECTBD in the next President's Bulletin!
