Describing the process for evaluating the college mission at Pima Community College (PCC), in Arizona, this report provides information and supporting materials from the process, focusing on an evaluation begun in fall 1990. First, the PCC mission statement, adopted on October 10, 1990, is presented and the importance of maintaining a clear, complete mission statement is described. Next, the mission review process is detailed, indicating that PCC conducts a comprehensive review of the mission statement every 5 years and that the review is conducted by a committee of equal numbers of college and community representatives. A mission charrette held in 1990 is also described which involved almost 100 college and community members and resulted in a set of 23 mission success indicators embodying the chief goals of the updated mission and which express the central commitments of the mission statement as institutional goals. Next, exhibit A lists the participants of the fall 1990 mission charrette. Exhibit B provides a specifications table for the success indicators, grouped in the areas of creative and effective teaching, access and equitable opportunity, general education, occupational programs, transfer education, developmental education, corporate and community education, economic development, bilingual and multicultural issues, employees and work environment, and communicating with the public. For each indicator, specific measures, criteria for success, data sources, and dates when data will be collected are detailed.
