Community Meeting on Tuesday Oct. 13 to discuss proposed baseball field

Tuesday, October 13, 2015
7 pm
Main Lobby, Southeast Technical Winona Campus
1250 Homer Road, Winona

google view of SE Tech Winona campus

Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical and Winona State University will host a community meeting about the proposal to partner on a new baseball field at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, in the Main Lobby of the Southeast Technical Winona Campus, 1250 Homer Road, Winona, MN. Parking is available directly in front of the building; enter through the front doors.

Before beginning any design work on the proposed project, Southeast Technical and WSU are soliciting community input to assess the feasibility of developing a seven-acre parcel of land on the Southeast Technical Winona campus as the new location for WSU's baseball field. The meeting is designed to answer questions and gather input from members of the community.

A new location for WSU's baseball field is necessary for the Warriors baseball team to host regional and national NCAA competition, as the baselines at WSU's Loughrey Field do not meet NCAA standards. The ability to host these competitions in Winona will help attract tourism to Winona and draw additional income for Winona businesses.

The proposed collaboration would reflect an expansion of the shared services already in place between WSU and Southeast Technical, and be a model of higher education partnership for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system.

For more information, call the WSU Communications Office at 507-457-5024.

Credit for Prior Learning helps LPNs make the transition to RN status

Southeast Technical offers credit for prior learning to help LPNs make the transition to RN status

Deadline November 1 to apply for new nursing option on Red Wing campus 

Nurse (2015)

Are you a currently licensed LPN? Are you thinking about becoming a registered nurse, but don't want to go back to college for two whole years to earn an associate degree in nursing?

If you have worked at least 1000 hours in the past year and your practical nursing license is up to date, you can apply now to start college Spring semester (which begins Jan. 11, 2016) and complete the 2-year degree in 3 semesters instead of 4.

Southeast Technical is piloting this new option on the Red Wing campus to give credit for prior learning to LPNs. The deadline to apply for this option is November 1, 2015 for a Spring 2016 start.

"The benefit to students is wonderful, both in cost and time savings," says Dr. Rita Berthelsen, Southeast Technical Interim Dean of Nursing and Allied Health.  "By receiving credit for prior learning for one semester of the associate degree, students will not only save money  -- approximately $3500 in tuition -- they may also be able to complete the program in only 3 semesters, allowing them more time in the workforce."

Students must apply to the college and complete the Associate Degree Nursing Application Packet by the November 1 deadline for consideration. 

Please note that this option is available on the college's Red Wing campus only; it is not offered on the Winona campus at this time.

With a 2-year nursing degree, graduates are eligible to sit for the registered nursing (RN) exam. An RN can expect a more challenging career and higher salary than an LPN. 2012 Bureau of Labor Statistic figures indicate that registered nurses typically earned $65,470 while LPNs earned $41,540.

For more information about the Associate Degree Nursing program at Southeast Technical, call 800-657-4849 (651-385-6300 in Red Wing) or go the Nursing program page. You can download application materials and information on the Healthcare Student Documents page.  To apply for admission to Southeast Technical, go to the "Apply Now" page.

Public Meeting on Oct. 13 to discuss WSU - SE Tech ball field plans

WSU, Southeast Technical partnering to develop a baseball field on Winona Campus

google view of SE Tech Winona campusMinnesota State College - Southeast Technical and Winona State University are partnering to assess the feasibility of developing a seven-acre parcel of land on the Southeast Technical Winona campus as the new location for WSU's baseball field.

A community meeting is planned to discuss the proposal, answer questions and gather input. Please join us!

Community Meeting
Tuesday, October 13
7 pm
Main Lobby
Southeast Technical Winona Campus

"This is a great opportunity for WSU and Southeast Technical to build on the services we already share and collaborate on a community project together," said Southeast Technical President Dr. Dorothy Duran. "It's mutually beneficial for Southeast Technical to make use of our assets in exchange for services provided by WSU."

Dr. Scott R. Olson, WSU President, echoed Duran's comments. "This is a wonderful example of collaboration between two sister institutions," said Olson. "We're thinking and working together differently, and making use of valuable shared assets."

Currently the baselines at WSU's Loughrey Field do not meet NCAA standards. A new location for WSU's baseball field will allow the Warriors baseball team to host regional and national NCAA competition, attracting tourism to Winona and drawing additional income for Winona businesses. 

The partnership would reflect an expansion of the shared services already in place between WSU and Southeast Technical. WSU currently provides security, human resources, institutional research, student health services, fitness facilities, and telephone technology for Southeast Technical.

WSU will lease the land from Southeast Technical and will be responsible for design, construction and maintenance of the new baseball field. The new field will include state-of-the-art green lighting that focuses on the playing field, permanent seating for about 700 spectators, a concession stand and public restrooms. The field also will have the potential for multi-use in the future.

The open field, located on the southeast side of the campus, is currently being used by WSU's rugby teams, whose practice and competition facilities will be relocated and upgraded.

Next steps for the project include preliminary land assessments of the property, followed by a design phase in which a plan will be developed and a timeline and construction schedule identified.
