Institutional Goals/Objectives for the Academic Year 1980-1981: Report of the Retreat/Planning Session (June 25-27, 1980).
DiCarlo, Robert D.
The planning retreat described in this report was conducted by Greenfield Community College in June 1980 to involve faculty, administration, and staff in the development of institutional goals and objectives for the 1980-1981 academic year. After introductory material listing the 23 retreat participants and the planning areas they focused on, the report reviews the institutional goals and objectives that had been established for 1979-1980 and then examines problems experienced in implementing those goals. Responses to a follow-up survey of the 1980 retreat participants are then presented, providing information on: (1) attitudes toward the success of the retreat; (2) the adequacy and uses made of the data provided; (3) suggestions for improving the process of developing institutional goals and objectives; (4) the central theme of the conference; (5) participant attitudes toward the goals implementation process; (6) participants' degree of input; (7) perceptions of the most significant outcomes of the retreat; and (8) participant ratings of various aspects of the retreat. Appended to the report are the retreat agenda and the outcomes of each item on the agenda and the goals, specific objectives, and timetables for the areas of retention, computer utilization, marketing, advising, communications, exemplary programs, resource allocation, and external funding.
