Miami-Dade Community College 1984 Institutional Self-Study. Volume V: North Campus Studies (Change Center, Honors Program, Basic Law Enforcement Training Program).
Miami-Dade Community Coll., FL.
Part of a systematic, in-depth assessment of Miami-Dade Community College's (MDCC's) educational programs, student support systems, and selected campus-level activities, this volume of the college's institutional self-study report examines the impact and effectiveness of selected programs at MDCC's North Campus. The first section provides information on North Campus, focusing on the student population; administrators, faculty, and staff; building programs; educational programs; and student and alumni accomplishments for the period 1974-1984. The next section introduces the special self-studies conducted at North Campus. The following sections provide evaluations of: (1) the CHANGE Center, a program fostering the academic, occupational, and social advancement of women; (2) the North Campus Honors Program; and (3) the Basic Law Enforcement Training Program. In addition to information on methods and findings, each section includes recommendations and projections. Finally, a summary section highlights the need for increased community and campus awareness of the programs, for expanding the services of the CHANGE Center and Honors Program, and for developing a strategy to cope with circumstances which currently make the Basic Law Enforcement Program unduly dependent upon the hiring needs of local police agencies.
