Boos, Roger T.; And Others
Designed for use by trustees, faculty, and staff at Lehigh County Community College (LCCC) in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, as the college prepares for the 21st century, this report presents a vision for addressing the critical trends and issues affecting LCCC. Drawing from trustee interviews with community leaders in business and industry, the professions, government, education, and community organizations, the report includes 10 separate sections reviewing major issues and implications related to clients; enrollment; finances; programs; delivery systems and facilities; community and education relationships (articulation); quality; workforce; human resources; and marketing. Each section defines and provides background to the issue; reviews related trends and projections; and discusses implications for the college. The conclusion of the report presents a series of detailed directives for the college, including the following: (1) institute an in-service training program to ensure that faculty and staff are equipped to work with a culturally and demographically diverse student population; (2) prepare to expand literacy and basic and developmental skills programs; (3) implement quality concepts to help contain costs; (4) institute a periodic needs assessment process; (5) defer new construction; (6) expand business and industry training programs; (7) establish specific competencies for each degree and program; and (8) intensify efforts in personalized recruitment.
