North Idaho College Long-Range Plan and Statement of Institutional Mission and Purpose.
Cargol, Owen F.
Based upon a planning project initiated at North Idaho College (NIC) in 1981 and approved by the Board of Trustees in 1982, this long-range plan states the mission of NIC and specifies goals and objectives to be attained in the next 3 years. First, introductory sections consider the qualities of a good long-range plan, address the responsibilities of college planners, examine the evolution of community colleges, and summarize the basic characteristics of successful college planning. The next section summarizes the results of a needs assessment of NIC constituents, including students, faculty, staff, and community members, which focused on their perceptions of NIC's current and future mission and purpose, organization and governance, curricula and programs, finances, facilities and equipment, staff, and student services. The next section states the mission of NIC and identifies its primary purposes with respect to the development of academic transfer, vocational, paraprofessional, terminal academic, and continued education students and to meeting community needs. Next, the plan identifies NIC's long-range goals in the areas of administration, instruction, continuing education, student services, community service, facilities and equipment, and finances, and details specific objectives for attaining the goals. Finally, appendices present growth projections, an organizational chart, and a list of associate of arts degree general education requirements. (DAB)
