In its major policy document, "Basic Agenda: Policy Directions and Priorities for the Nineties," the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges (CCC) specifies goals and objectives necessary for the system's 107 community colleges. Following the format of the Basic Agenda, this 1992-93 status report provides an update on the implementation of these goals and objectives. Following a brief introduction, the six sections of this report examine the areas of mission, access, governance, fiscal policy, and educational quality. For each area, the Basic Agenda initiatives are listed and specific efforts undertaken to date for each initiative are described. Among the CCC efforts described in the report are the following: (1) implementation of intersegmental general education transfer curriculum requirements; (2) projects to increase the number and success of underrepresented students in transfer programs; (3) minigrants and other special funding to increase the number of successful underrepresented students in vocational education programs; (4) incentives to attract and retain underrepresented faculty and staff; (5) public relations and fund-raising initiatives; (6) approval of a 15-year new facilities plan; (7) development of a new Curriculum Standards Handbook; (8) funding of 19 projects at CCC institutions to improve the quality of teaching and learning; and (9) implementation of workshops for English-as-a-Second-Language quality standards and performance.
