December Commencement Ceremony

  • ECTC will not hold a December Commencement ceremony this year due to a low response from a survey sent out to all graduating students. However, we will hold our annual Commencement ceremony in May for all graduates from the 2022-2023 academic year.

Open and Appointed Committees

  • Cabinet members were given the revised Open and Appointed Committee Membership lists and final revisions were made.

Handshake Update

  • Mike Hazzard gave Cabinet members a Handshake update. Handshake is the nation’s number one college-to-career network. “The goal is to help every student find a great job and build the foundations of a meaningful career, no matter who they are, where they’re from, or who they know.”
  • Handshake partners with schools and employers from across the county and includes 1,300 + higher education institutions, over 9 million students and alumni, and 550K + employers.
  • Handshake works to remove the barriers of geography, socio-economic status, gender, and ethnicity.
  • Handshake is set to launch for ECTC students November 7, 2022.
