In 1992, a study was conducted to determine whether Grossmont College (GC) was meeting its five stated goals of excellence, retention, access, transfer, and diversity. Data were gathered on: (1) student access, including a comparison of applicants and enrollees, the ethnicity of freshmen, participation in testing and orientation programs, English placement results, at-risk predictors, and unit loads; (2) student success, including such measures as retention, characteristics of first-time students, academic progress of student athletes, follow-up of matriculated students, persistence, transfer, and student satisfaction; (3) college outcomes, including data on weekly student contact hours, full-time equivalencies, per student costs, international students, program effectiveness, class scheduling, and facility use; (4) staffing, including information on gender, ethnicity, and age, student evaluations of instructors, and administrator evaluations; and (5) facilities, including measures of the efficiency of use of the physical facilities on campus, with special reference to classroom space. The bulk of the report consists of descriptive and evaluative "windows" on each of these areas, including data tables and graphs, descriptions and definitions, and questions and implications. (JMC)
