2013-2014 Institutional Outcomes
Strategic Goals
A: Advance Student Access, Equity, and Success A.1 Student Access: Focus access on programs and course offerings in the essential areas of basic skills, CTE (Career Technical Education), and transfer; and stay within range of the state-funded allocation by achieving resident enrollment of 18,830 FTES (Full-Time Equivalent Students). Provide educational opportunities by increasing local student outreach, distance education, and international education.
A.2 Student Success: Support Student Success Act of 2012 (SB 1456), including requiring students to complete core matriculation services; to declare a course of study early; and to provide orientation, assessment, counseling, advising and other student education planning services. Increase coordination among colleges and align course offerings to meet student needs.
A.3 Student Success: Continue to implement institutional, instructional, assessment, and student support to improve the successful progress of students through basic skills/foundation course sequences by 2014-2015. Implement new assessment methods to maximize the number of students who can skip basic skills and go directly to college-level courses.
A.4 Student Equity: Implement colleges’ student equity plans and improve completion rates and fall-to-fall persistence among major ethnic groups by 2014-15.
A.5 Quality Student Support Services: Help ensure that students remain enrolled and succeed by improving the enrollment and financial aid processes in ways that produce measurable and desired outcomes.
B: Engage and Leverage Partners B.1 Partnerships: Align and strengthen external partnerships (i.e., community, business, and K-12) to improve student learning, transfer, career readiness, and job placement.
C: Build Programs of Distinction C.1 Uniquely Designed Programs: Continue to support programs and services that are exemplary, innovative designs to substantially improve student success.
