Grant to improve OATC
by Troy Blackledge
The Print Staff
Behold! The future of
education cometh to CCC-
The possibilities of fiber­
optic linkage and microwave TV
reception are scheduled to become
a part of the educational experi­
ence at Oregon Advanced Tech­
Wilsonville’s capability for edu­
cating will be expanded to two-
way, interactive telecourses from
around the country.
This technology will pro­
vide for an information “sharing”
between institutions around the
country, greatly expanding the
number of classes our institution
is capable of teaching. If OATC
wished to teach a class in Machin­
ing Fundamentals X, for instance,
yettheyweren’tproperly equipped,
all they would have to do is contact
the appropriate school and par­
ticipate in their classes via the
two-way TV link.
This vast resource is
brought to us by the CCC Founda­
tion board, a group of volunteers
who raise money for various pro­
grams and projects the school is
interested in pursuing. The on­
going campaign to equip and fur­
nish tiie Wilsonville campus is
nearing completion, thanks to The
Murdock Trust’s Challenge Grant.
The Foundation made a
proposal to Murdock Trust to pro­
vide a grant of $136,000. toward
technological advancement at the
OATC, particularly for two com­
puter labs, microwave television
access and a fiber-optic distance
learner system, “all of it the new­
est technology for distance learn­
ing,” according to Corky
Kirkpatrick, directorof grants and
special projects.
Unaccustomed to such a
large grant proposal from a com­
munity college, Murdock Trust
opted for the cautious approach; if
our school raised half of the de­
sired grant, or $68,000 from other
contributors, and maintained the
proposed equipment improve­
ments, they would indeed match
the accumulated half with a gift of
$68,000. The Foundation raised
the needed half, thanks to gener­
ous support from the private sec­
tor, and largely to the contribution
of Larry Cole, director of Canby
Telephone/North Willamette
Telecom, who provided the dis­
tance fiber-optic link to the school.
“The promotion of tech­
nical advancement in Clackamas
County” is the bottom line, ac­
cording to the Foundation’s presi­
dent, David Dickson. “Compa­
nies demonstrate a keen interest
in OATC because our programs
are better suited to training work­
ers for the smaller, more local
industries of Clackamas County,”
he said. These improvements at
Wilsonville will likely improve
the reputation of the technical
schooling and eventually employ
more people residing in Clacka­
mas County.
Today's students will
probably miss out on the improved
technology. Two years is the ex­
pected development span, accord­
ing to Kirkpatrick with “fiber­
optic linkage in the fall.”
