Miami-Dade Community College 1984 Institutional Self-Study. Volume VII: Mitchell Wolfson New World Center Campus Study (Evaluation of the Center for Business and Industry).
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 the Center for Business and Industry (CBI) at MDCC's Wolfson Campus. Introductory material outlines the history of the CBI, an educational partnership between the college and local commercial, professional, and service organizations, and highlights evaluation issues related to the establishment and implementation of the Center, the effectiveness of its services, its impact on the campus, and plans for future development. The next sections describe the research design, which involved interviews and surveys to determine the perceptions of faculty, staff, administrators, and program participants; evaluation results and conclusions; and recommendations and implementation plans. Finally, a report summary highlights the following study findings: (1) the program was initially conceived and implemented in response to input from area businesses; (2) in general, all groups felt that the CBI program was being successfully implemented and was addressing a significant community need; (3) 1,123 participants were involved in 43 different CBI training activities during the first year of operation; and (4) the program was responsible for a $34,000 profit when first year costs and revenues were compared.
