A Central Office Self-Study of the South Carolina State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education.
South Carolina State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education, Columbia.
The South Carolina State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education was one of four state agencies for two-year colleges to participate in a pilot self-study project. This document contains the results of the South Carolina Board's self-study. Using a manual developed by the National Council of State Directors for Community and Junior Colleges, the Board examined its operations in the following areas: goals, scope, and legal responsibilities; organization and administration; planning and research; finance; external influences (official and unofficial coordination with various boards, commissions, and agencies); relations with constituent institutions within the system; and management information systems. In addition to descriptively reporting on its operations, the report puts forth recommendations, where necessary, for improving operational performance of the Board. Also included in the report is an overview of the organization, administration, and political environment affecting South Carolina postsecondary education, and a brief history of the South Carolina Technical Education System.
