Alamo Community Coll. District, San Antonio, TX.
Strategic priorities for the Alamo Community College District (ACCD) are identified based on conclusions drawn by the ACCD Community Advisory Council from studies of: (1) Bexar County population characteristics and trends; (2) community economic and social priorities; (3) college enrollment potential; (4) needs and characteristics of the ACCD's students and faculty; and (5) financial resources and alternatives. Part 1 of the paper summarizes study findings, providing an overview of the present status of Bexar County and San Antonio in terms of population trends and growth activity, demography, economic development, social issues, and the quality of life. Study findings are also reviewed concerning the characteristics of students, faculty, programs, space, facilities, and finances in the ACCD. Part 2 focuses on the challenges that will confront the District over the coming years in the areas of human resources; program directions in high technology, developmental education, health careers, hospitality management, and military educational needs; space and facilities on existing and additional campuses; financial considerations such as proportional contributions of revenue, faculty and staff salaries, improved efficiency, and expansion of the ACCD's tax base. Finally, part 3 presents strategic recommendations in relation to the maintenance and expansion of resources and a suggested sequence of events. (HB)
