Districtwide Needs Assessment Report. Final Project Report.
San Diego Community Coll. District, CA.
In order to develop objective data to assist the Board of Trustees and the District in developing programs, services, and facilities which meet community needs, a comprehensive, five-phased Needs Assessment Project was undertaken. Data for the project were acquired through face-to-face interviews and comprehensive questionnaires. Participants included 725 randomly selected members of the general San Diego community, 154 selected community leaders, 428 District staff, and 965 continuing students and 636 former students. Overall, the District seemed to be a highly visible and fairly well understood resource for the community. Faculty, administrators, and support personnel were generally rated favorably by the respondents. Although the respondents indicated that "cutting back" might be suitable in some areas, many current programs were recommended for expansion, especially in the area of vocational education. The colleges were generally perceived as having a good relationship with the community. A consensus of the respondents believe that the highest priorities of the District should be in the areas of providing educational opportunities for the physically handicapped and training students to be citizens. Data are summarized in 30 tables, and a copy of the survey instrument is appended. (Author/NHM)
