School Notes:

College of Court Reporting is a progressive, student-centered institution with a global reputation as being the leader in court reporting education. CCR was one of the first colleges in the country to deliver its entire court reporting program via distance education over the Internet and award an Associate of Applied Science degree. CCR was recently one of five colleges and universities nationwide to be selected by the U.S. Department of Education to participate in their Distance Education Demonstration Program. We are home to the state's only degree granting court reporting program. The College of Court Reporting (CCR) was founded in 1984 by Kay Moody. Prior to opening CCR, Kay completed her training at the Chicago College of Commerce in Chicago, Illinois. Following her training, she was asked to be an instructor at a local court reporting college in Northwest Indiana. After that college closed its doors, she decided to open her own college. CCR applied for and was granted full accreditation by the Indiana Commission on Proprietary Education (ICOPE) on January 1, 1985. It was granted approval to award an Associate of Applied Science degree in Court Reporting by the same commission on August 14, 1985. Within a few years, Kay was able to develop a program that met and exceeded the minimum standards of the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA). CCR was granted full approval for its court reporting program by the NCRA on November 1, 1987. Today, the College of Court Reporting offers undergraduate associated degree, certificate and diploma programs in three specialized areas of study. CCR's students include a diverse group of primarily working adults from all walks of life, including students throughout the United States and around the world. Generally, CCR's students are those who seek hands-on instruction, dedicated faculty and staff and a high-quality, career specific curriculum. We provide exemplary educational opportunities through our commitment to an academic range of general education courses to occupational specific academic and skill development courses. From medical terminology, court reporting procedures, closed captioning, to computer aided transcription, dedicated faculty complement every discipline. During the last decade, College of Court Reporting has moved ahead by expanding its court reporting program creating new captioning and CART reporting courses to meet our students' needs. Lastly, in 2005 we received approval from the Indiana Commission on Proprietary Education to implement a full associate degree granting captioning program. Students will have the education, skills, academic background, technical knowledge, and hands-on experience required to enter a variety of careers. The college strives to improve its programs with the latest information technologies such as steno text entry, computerized transcription, and videotape applications.
