Kathleen Schiefen.

The National Council for Workforce Education has selected Kathleen Schiefen, dean of academic services at Monroe Community College's Damon City Campus, to receive the James Jacobs Scholarship Award for her doctoral research on the impact of community colleges' organizational structures on workforce departments. The award honors the most outstanding scholarly contributions made in the area of workforce education. Schiefen has been invited to present her research, "Entrepreneurial Orientation of Community College Workforce Divisions and the Impact of Organizational Structure: A Grounded Theory Study," at the NCWE Annual Conference in October in Washington. Through her research, she developed a theory of how the organizational structure of community colleges influences the workforce departments or divisions to operate as small businesses to provide training to business and industry. Schiefen received her doctoral degree in higher education leadership from Capella University (Minneapolis) in June. She also holds a master's degree in adult education from SUNY Buffalo, a bachelor's in organizational management from Roberts Wesleyan College and an associate degree in radiologic technology from Trocaire College.
