Operational Definitions and Baseline Data for the Higher Education Coordinating Board Policy on Minority Participation and Diversity.
Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board, Olympia.
In January, 1991, the Higher Education Coordinating Board established a Policy on Minority Participation and Diversity for the public postsecondary education system in the State of Washington. Included in this policy were short- and long-term goals for increasing participation and success by people of color and cultural diversity. Five areas are covered: student enrollment; student retention; degree completion; faculty and staff employment; and institutional climate. This paper serves as a resource for institutional planning and action. It provides operational definitions of terms and measures used to define the statewide goals. It also contains baseline data and information for the four-year and community/technical college systems that are crucial to understanding the commitment and effort necessary to achieve progress and meet or exceed the Board's statewide goals. An appendix includes an outline of the specific statewide goals in each of the five areas of concentration. (GLR)
