Vancouver Community College Educational Plan, 1988-1993.
Vancouver Community College's (VCC's) educational plan for 1988-93 is set forth in this document. First, an outline is presented of VCC's current planning initiatives, including efforts related to controlled enrollment expansion, the demand for part-time studies, instructional quality, facility expansion, instructional innovation, management development, and internal communications. Next, a statement is presented, confirming VCC's continued commitment to interinstitutional and intersystem cooperation, entrepreneurial initiatives with private sector partners, international education, and involvement in provincial, national, and international activities. In the next section, enrollment-oriented planning considerations are discussed, which include overall programmatic stability, improvements in the viability and quality of the two-year arts and sciences program, increased needs for English as a Second Language and literacy training, and other anticipated changes. Discussions of instructional and facilities/equipment considerations are followed by comments on VCC's relations with the Native Education Centre in Vancouver and the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Appendixes provide supporting data in graphs and tables; a summary of the major findings of an environmental scan; reports on issues related to instructional program reviews, international education, the Canadian Jobs Strategy, and VCC's performance measured against previous educational plans; and a chart showing directions and initiatives planned for 1987-93.
