CCE Shares in Prestigious DHS Grant
The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) Mental Health Division awarded a $900,000 grant jointly to the College of Continuing Education (CCE), the School of Social Work (SSW), and the Department of Psychiatry to establish the Minnesota Center for Clinical Excellence and Mental Wellness.
Designed to help Minnesota's mental health practitioners serve their clients in the most effective way, the Center's goals are training clinicians in holistic, integrated care, using evidence-informed services and fostering mental wellness for all citizens of Minnesota.

Julie Rohovit, Ph.D., is the director of CCE's Integrated Behavioral Health Master's Program and the principal investigator for the grant. Says Rohovit, "We are excited for the opportunity to serve as a resource for providers and people living with complex mental health and substance use issues. At the heart of our mission is support for programs and clinicians across Minnesota who are providing welcoming, hope-inspiring, research-informed, recovery-oriented services that foster mental wellness."

Manufacturing Technology Program Becomes Manufacturing Operations Management
Following Board of Regents approval, the Manufacturing Technology Program (BASc., minor, and certificate) has changed its name to Manufacturing Operations Management, in order to "better reflect the program objectives." The course designator has changed from MT to MM.

Along with the name change, there will be some curriculum revisions, as well. According to Michelle Koker, the College's director of undergraduate degree programs, "Today's manufacturing industry is dramatically changed. Stakeholder focus groups have recommended further refining the operations focus of the major to serve high-tech manufacturing, including Minnesota's booming medical device manufacturing sector. Since its inception, the Manufacturing Technology (MT) program curriculum has evolved in response to changing industry demands.

"As [the newest and most recent] revisions support an emphasis on operational management, and the name should, too. The new title, Manufacturing Operations Management (MM), better reflects the program objectives."

Regarding the curricular changes, seven credits of technical electives have been replaced with 7 credits of required course work (see below), leaving eight remaining credits of technical electives. The new courses are:

MM 3205 (3 cr.): Engineering in Manufacturing Operations
MM 4039 (2 cr.): Contracts and Outsourcing
MM 4311 (2 cr.): Sustainable Lean Manufacturing

These three courses were recommended by the advisory board and faculty. They also will serve students in other colleges and industry professionals seeking career development.

Complete details are available on the Manufacturing Operations Management website.
