November 29, 2010
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Owen Cooks, associate vice chancellor for facilities at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) has received the Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP) credential.

    The CEFP program is directed by the APPA (originally named
Association of Physical Plant Administrators), an association representing physical plant managers of universities and colleges.  The certification is designed to confirm professional achievements in the field and passing the exam represents a superior understanding of the knowledge to create and maintain safe, functional and inspiring learning environments.

    “Managing facilities for a university requires a unique knowledge and set of competencies,” said Gerald Hunter, WSSU’s vice chancellor for finance and administration.  “Buildings and grounds are extremely important to the school. Maintaining the best physical environment, while balancing the needs of students, faculty and staff with resources available, requires a tremendous skill.  Owen has consistently provided the leadership we need at WSSU to ensure that we meet our current needs and are preparing for the future as well.”
