Welcome to my faculty Web page. My name is Tom Rose and I am a professor in the OIT (Office Information Technology) department. My office is located on the 2nd floor (O-201e) in the Ohm building.
I currently teach Office Procedures/Keyboarding, Applications Software, Microsoft WORD Expert, Microsoft, EXCEL Expert, Microsoft PowerPoint Core, Outlook/OneNote, online classes, classes for ILR (Institute for Learning Retirement) & LLL (Lifelong Learning), and Introduction to Criminal Justice.
I’ve taught every Microsoft Operating System and Microsoft Office Suite back to 3.1. I began teaching for Kellogg Community College as an Adjunct Instructor since February 1999.
Prior to becoming a full-time faculty, I spent 10 years working in I.S. (Information Services) for the college. I spent my first two years working at the Eastern Academic Center when they opened the doors in 2001 as the lab technician for the center.
From 2003-2007 I came to the main campus and managed the Help Desk operations. It was my first task to put the Help Desk together and get the Ohm building in place. The Ohm building was new in 2003.
For the next three years (2007-2010) I was the Technology Training Manager for the college. It was my job to train all faculty, employees, and Adjunct Faculty the different software’s applications that we used at the college. I put together 27 different programs for training.
In 2011 I went into the faculty side of the college and became a full-time faculty. I started in the Open Entry/Open Exit program. We taught 28 different modules where students were able to come in on a flexible schedule to do there work for the semester. The lab was located in the Ohm building, room 106.
Please feel free to stop in or give me a call if you have any questions about any of your OIT course(s). By clicking the Office Hours link, you’ll be able to find when I’m available for the semester. Thank you.
