Long-Range Self-Study, 1975-1985.
Williamsport Area Community Coll., PA.
This self-study contains recommendations and objectives for Williamsport Area Community College (WACC), a one-campus, vocational-technical oriented college in an industrial community in Pennsylvania. The methodology employed in producing this self-study is intended to form the framework for a continuous learning-oriented short and long-range planning process. This document presents the history and present status of WACC, and develops a new philosophy and mission statement, institution and unit goals and objectives. It recommends that WACC make its educational programs more accessible to all citizens within its ten-county service area by decentralizing services to three main regional centers. Four different enrollment projections are made, for each of the major college programs. Overall, assuming the initiation of the three campus approach, it is estimated that WACC could offer services to over 13,000 people (4,789 FTE) by 1985, a 30 percent increase over 1975. A major goal is to develop as a statewide career education model, coordinating career development and preparation through secondary, postsecondary and community education services. Also reviewed are WACC's educational programs and services, support services, staff development programs, and physical and financial resources. (Author/NHM)
