Dona Ana Branch Community College Five-Year Plan: Adopted 1989, Revised 1990-1991.
New Mexico State Univ., Las Cruces. Dona Ana Branch Community Coll.
In 1990-91, responding to the rapid growth and change of both community and college, New Mexico State University's (NMSU's) Dona Ana Branch Community College (DABCC) revised its 5-year plan which was adopted in 1989 to establish goals that would shape the actions, policies, and plans of the college. These goals included: (1) increase instructional excellence and student success; (2) increase access to the community college throughout the service area; (3) assume a partnership role with Dona Ana County in serving the community's educational and economic needs; (4) provide the staff and facilities needed to serve a rapidly increasing enrollment; (5) evolve into a comprehensive community college; (6) develop adequate funding resources for rapid expansion; and (7) maintain a close relationship with NMSU. Nineteen new programs are being considered for implementation over the next 5 years, including eight allied health occupations programs. Many of the programs respond to identified regional employment needs. This 5-year plan includes brief reports on the characteristics of DABCC's full-time faculty; six college programs that have been recognized for their excellence or distinct contributions; and existing academic programs and program review efforts.
