Missions and Activities of Johnson County Community College: Constituent Perceptions and Evaluations, Spring 1984.
Johnson County Community Coll., Overland Park, KS. Office of Institutional Research.
In spring 1984, Johnson County Community College (JCCC) conducted a survey of its constituents asking them to assess 66 college activities in terms of their importance and how well they were being accomplished at JCCC. The survey instrument was administered to 1,225 individuals from JCCC's major constituent groups, including members of the board of trustees, foundation board of directors, college administrators, faculty, and students. Study findings, based on an overall 40.7% response rate, included the following: (1) respondents felt that JCCC should emphasize its instructional programs, including credit courses and certificate and associate degree programs in transfer, occupational and general education areas; (2) JCCC was perceived to perform this primary mission exceedingly well; (3) constituents supported JCCC's providing instructional programs and related support services to various special groups of students; (3) the two priority missions that constituents felt could be improved were providing special support services and programs for students of high academic ability and providing credit courses and programs at accessible locations to meet adult educational needs; and (4) constituents perceived JCCC to currently overemphasize providing general interest courses for senior citizens and instructional programs for non-high school graduates; and (5) there was remarkable consistency among the constituent groups. The questionnaire is appended. (Author/LAL)
