Plan of Action.
This Plan of Action is the seventh in a series of such plans for the development of Cowley County Community College and Area Vocational-Technical School. Part I describes the history and mission of the college, focusing on changes at the college since its establishment in 1922, its location and service area, institutional mission, and educational program. In an effort to ensure that the long-range plans of the college are consistent with local economic and demographic conditions, part II analyzes trends in the areas of population growth and characteristics, size of high school graduating classes, and college enrollments and programs. In addition, projections are made regarding job opportunities, enrollment, college staffing, budget, and facilities. Part III examines the college's 10 major goals and reviews its principal resources and assets (e.g., diversity of programs, administrative leadership, well-planned facilities and equipment, excellent staff-student relations, and well-qualified faculty). Part IV explains the college's assumptions for planning, the definitions employed in the planning process, and the institution's needs and objectives related to college community services, student life, student recruitment, program planning, program accessibility, educational support services, staff development, college identity, performing groups, and utilization of resources. Finally, a plan of action chart is presented, detailing objectives, and indicating the priority, responsible party, and schedule for each objective. (LAL)
