A Study of Goals for Cosumnes River College [California]: A Follow-Up Study.
Walters, H. R.
As part of a 1974 self-evaluation study for accreditation at Cosumnes River College, the Institutional Goals Inventory (IGI) was administered to a representative sample of faculty and administrators, students, and local citizens and compared to IGI results for 1972. Results of both inventories are tabulated and compared. The three top priority goals in both years were: (1) a commitment to vocational education, shown by establishing new curricula as career fields change and develop; (2) a commitment to the college community whereby there is open communication, amicable discussion of differences, and mutual trust and respect among all sectors; (3) and a commitment to individual personal development by identifying students' personal goals and finding means of achieving them. Other high priorities were meeting local needs and implementing democratic governance. The second part of the 1974 IGI included 20 locally developed goal statements. Results of the local goals survey show a concern for individual counseling based on entrance examinations, accelerated programs, and developmental programs in basic skills. (MJK)
