Dundalk Community College Goals Survey Report.
Harrison, Wendy L.; Rajasekhara, K.
A study was conducted at Dundalk Community College (DCC) to identify and prioritize basic campus goals. The Community College Goals Inventory (CCGI), which focuses on 20 goal areas and the extent to which they are and ought to be carried out, was supplemented with items related to 20 local goal areas. The survey was distributed to all 28 college administrators, all 51 full-time faculty, 35 part-time faculty, 200 full- and part-time students, 50 community members, and 50 representatives of business and industry. Based on responses from 25 administrators, 50 faculty, 103 students, 32 community members, and 29 business/industry representatives, study findings revealed: (1) the five CCGI goal areas identified as most important to DCC in the coming years related to vocational/technical education; general education; developmental/remedial programs; college community (e.g., faculty and staff commitment and open communication); and intellectual orientation (e.g., openness to new ideas and intellectual work); and (2) the five local goals perceived to be most important were concerned with providing well-prepared workers to area employers; creating an environment to attract, retain, and motivate faculty and staff; working with area high schools; obtaining resources to support programs and activities; and evaluating faculty and staff regularly. Appendices include descriptions of CCGI outcome and process goals as well as local institutional goals. (HB)
