Martorana, S. V.; And Others
Cumberland County College with a team of consultants developed a long-range plan along with a continuing planning process to assure the college's continued effectiveness. Aspects of the planning process include: review of available reports relevant to the college's long-range planning; identification of preliminary goals and objectives; assessment of county needs for postsecondary educational services; review of available educational programs in the county; assessment of community influence on planning; and projection of fiscal and other resource needs. Elements of the long-range plan include: (1) reaffirmation to fulfill the full range of community college services; (2) growth in enrollment of 10-12% a year, especially among older, part-time, minority, and women students; (3) formulation of procedures for assessment of institutional programs; (4) accomplishment of an in-depth community needs study simultaneously with the 1980 census; (5) acquisition of off-campus instructional centers; (6) expansion of non-traditional instructional techniques; (7) completion of the current capital development plan; (8) development of a cultural center; (9) increases in annual operating budgets somewhat larger than increases in enrollment; (10) stronger efforts to acquire funds for personnel, facilities, and services; and (11) movement to become a center for information exchange. Data tables are included throughout the report. (MB)
