New Mexico Community College Task Force Final Report.
Ludutsky-Taylor, Tina; Halsey, Debra L.
In September 1985, the New Mexico Community College Task Force was created by the New Mexico Association of Community and Junior Colleges to conduct a coordinated statewide information campaign about the educational programs and services provided by the state's 17 two-year colleges; and to address the critical issues facing these institutions. This report provides a summary of the activities of the Task Force between September and December, 1985. Following an explanation of why the Task Force was created, the report identifies nine issues facing the community colleges and offers a series of related recommendations for improving institutional growth and development. The issues and recommendations focus on the community colleges' mission; the associate degree; funding; educational quality; governance; tuition; linkages with high schools, business, industry and government; marketing; and articulation. A list of task force members is followed by a section detailing task force activities during the 3-month period, including meetings, media contacts, speaking engagements, advertising, college contacts, legislative contacts, and informal surveys. Appendices provide employment projections, and a fact sheet on New Mexico's community colleges. (LAL)
