In addition to its routine responsibilities, the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) has identified special goal areas based on issues of high priority for the Illinois Community College System (ICCS) related to the Board's mission and philosophy. For 1993 and 1994, eight goals were identified: (1) accountability, i.e., to document the performance and effectiveness of the state's community colleges; (2) articulation, i.e., to initiate activities that facilitate successful transition for students from high schools to community colleges and from community colleges to universities; (3) grants and contracts, i.e., to secure state, federal, and private sector grants and contracts to provide enhanced funding for ICCB and ICCS initiatives; (4) legislative advocacy and public relations, i.e., to promote the ICCS as a cost-effective, accountable system of higher education and to foster effective relations with state and federal governments; (5) substance abuse prevention and education, i.e., to provide leadership to the ICCS in identifying and developing substance abuse prevention and education initiatives on campuses and in local communities; (6) telecommunications, i.e., to promote the use of telecommunications technology in the ICCS; (7) teaching and learning, i.e., to focus statewide attention on the critical areas of teaching and learning and to assist colleges in marketing teaching and learning excellence as the hallmark of community colleges; and (8) workforce preparation, i.e., to enhance the effectiveness of the ICCS as a leader in the preparation of a competitive workforce and to assist the ICCS in marketing workforce development efforts. This report provides an overview of each of the goals, related objectives, activities, timelines, staff assignments, and outcomes for 1993 and 1994. (KP)
