2018 Emeritus Recipients
Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) honored four faculty and staff members with Emeritus Awards for 2018.
2018 Emeritus Recipients
Retired 2016 as Biology Instructor, Scott Community College
In her 40-year tenure with EICC, Pamela Bass demonstrated the range of flexibility that made her a highly valued member of the college’s team. Starting as a new faculty member in the medical laboratory technology program in 1975, Bass spent her entire career helping students and fellow faculty members master new skills in changing educational environments.
She served 25 years in the allied health department, where she helped double the number of allied health programs offered at EICC. When the med lab tech program ended in 2000, Pam moved to Arts & Sciences, becoming a full-time member of the biology faculty.
In 2005, she enthusiastically embraced the advent of online instruction, developing courses and becoming a mentor-trainer for the Iowa Community College Online Consortium. Pam is recognized at EICC and throughout the state of Iowa as a leading expert in both the teaching and technology aspects of online learning.
She has been instrumental in the development of state-wide standards for online instructor preparation and development, and has led many professional development sessions for EICC and ICCOC.
Pam’s passion for education is still alive and well in her 43rd year of teaching as she continues to serve EICC’s students as an adjunct faculty member.
Retired 2017 as ATEEC Project Coordinator
During Glo Hanne’s 23 years with EICC’s Advanced Technology Environmental and Energy Center (ATEEC), she held the goal of 100 percent correct, not just “good enough.” She always wanted her work and everything associated with EICC and ATEEC to be “perfect.”
As project coordinator for the college’s National Science Foundation Center of Excellence, Hanne not only kept the office running and everyone on schedule, she also oversaw several projects of her own. She served as project manager for the U.S. EPA’s Brownfields Workforce Development Program, coordinating two-day environmental workforce training workshops all over the country for 22 years.
Hanne helped resurrect the college’s Environmental Health & Safety training program, working with instructors and local business and industry to make it the successful program it is today. She also served as editor of ATEEC’s website and for many of its national publications.
Jane Marlowe, Faculty Emeritus
Retiring 2018 as Developmental Education Instructor, Clinton Community College
An 18-year developmental education faculty member at Clinton Community College (CCC), Jane Marlowe has been described as a “calm, encouraging partner with colleagues, a competent and compassionate instructor, and a tireless advocate for our students.”
In addition to her devotion to students in her classroom, Marlow has been a tremendous leader for EICC. She has served as department chair, worked on numerous college and district committees, and served as board member for the Iowa Developmental Education Association.
Ten years ago she developed CCC’s Learning Communities, providing an opportunity for students to work and learn as a cohort, share the same teachers and build relationships with each other. Retention and persistence of the students in these cohorts outpaced that for other students, allowing many individuals to achieve academic success.
Marlowe has also served as the Phi Theta Kappa advisor at CCC, leading the chapter to Five-Star Status throughout her tenure as advisor. She has been recognized as a Distinguished Advisor by the National PTK, and the chapter has received the organization’s REACH Award for its membership growth.
Marlowe also served as the coordinator of peer tutoring for the college’s Student Success Center – hiring, training and supporting peer tutors who work with students needing assistance.
Lisa Miller, Staff Emeritus
Retiring 2018 as Dean of Students, Clinton Community College
Lisa Miller is an EICC home-grown success story. As a Scott Community College student in the 1980s, Lisa took her first job in Student Activities, making change for the pool players in the Student Life Center.
After working her way up through the ranks, she is retiring this year as Dean of Students at Clinton Community College after more than 30 years of service to EICC. Miller’s journey from student to leader has shaped her leadership style, providing her with personal insight and understanding of our students’ needs and inspiring her always to make decisions based on what is best for our students.
She has been instrumental in implementing several initiatives to improve students’ experiences, including the creation of common time for student activities, restructuring academic advising, redesigning the Student Services area, and setting up the CCC Cupboard, a service to students who need food and other basic life necessities.
Miller is deeply involved in college and district committee work, with special responsibility for leading the College Registrars’ team in planning and implementing several new and improved processes. She leads by example, and never asks her staff to do anything she would not do herself.
Throughout her tenure she has always made herself available to assist staff with their own growth, serving as a formal mentor to several staff as both a supervisor and a L.E.A.D. Advocate, and an informal mentor to many others.
