Oakland Community College announces the appointment of Peter Provenzano to the position of Chancellor. Provenzano joined Oakland Community College in 2014 as Vice Chancellor of Administrative Services and a key member of the College's executive leadership team. Since May 2017, Provenzano has served as the Interim Chancellor. The Board of Trustees voted unanimously in favor of Provenzano as successor in the position of Chancellor.
At Oakland Community College's November Board of Trustees meeting, officials were presented with the College's Fiscal Year 2017 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) by independent auditing firm Plante Moran. Firm Partner Dana Coomes, CPA, stated OCC was awarded, "an 'unmodified' opinion with no findings, which illustrates strong internal controls and meets all federal grant criteria." The independent team commended the College and Board audit committee for their excellence in fiscal oversight, noting the size and scope of operations, student financial aid regulations and grant funding regulations unique to higher education.
On November 15, Students in the OCC Culinary Studies Program faced off in a "Chopped"-style contest to create tasty and original recipes for both sweet and savory dishes using the secret ingredient - pastry puffs. Top winners were awarded $250 Visa gift cards.
This past month brought new opportunities for scholastic achievement for these OCC student leaders, as they devoted a the month of November to fun and dynamic educational activities at the Auburn Hills campus centered on raising awareness about the increasing national debt. Activities ranged from Game of Thrones inspired events to contests and a panel discussion with Oakland County Treasurer Andy Meisner and Political Advisor Doug Tietz.
