The Final Report of the Projections Committee on Accreditation Reaffirmation at College of the Mainland. Part II.
Vaughan, Jerry L.; And Others
Prepared as part of the College of the Mainland's (COM's) accreditation reaffirmation, this six-part report reviews the societal and technological environment of the college; offers forecasts for the college district, enrollments, and budget; evaluates COM's self-study reports; and recommends a long-range planning system. After reviewing COM's accreditation reaffirmation activities, part 1 provides the results of three studies: (1) a survey of campus opinion-leaders which established six priorities for institutional planning (i.e., quality, adaptability, balance, integrity, financing, and dynamics); (2) an assessment of the societal and technological trends likely to affect 11 self-study categories (i.e., institutional purpose, adminstrative organization, educational program, faculty, library, special activities programs, physical plant, financial resources, admissions program, student development activities, and long-range planning); and (3) a vulnerability analysis investigating the impact of the 11 self-study categories upon the 6 institutional planning priorities. Part 2 offers projections for the district population; credit enrollments; age and sex distributions for credit enrollments; non-credit avocational and non-credit vocational enrollments; and budgetary requirements. After part 3 evaluates reports for each of the self-study categories, part 4 offers observations and suggestions for long-range planning, part 5 sets forth recommendations, and part 6 provides references.
