More, Vishwas D.; Petrossian, Alice S.
In response to the rapidly changing environment of the state of California, the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges (CCCs) developed the Basic Agenda in 1991 to convey the vision of the state's community colleges and provide broad direction at the systemwide and local levels. This report provides the New Basic Agenda, reflecting recent trends and identifying major challenges to successful student learning and policy directives to address these challenges. Following prefatory materials, the report address the following challenges and policy directions for the CCCs: (1) delivering high quality education in a manner that achieves student success; (2) meeting the expanding educational needs of the state population; (3) adapting to the changing educational needs of Californians so as to be relevant and timely; and (4) enhancing and improving the organization of the human and physical infrastructure of the CCCs. For each challenge, specific policy directions are presented, including the implementation of degree and certificate reviews; methods for measuring student educational objectives and performance; enrollment management; methods for determining the learning needs of an increasingly multicultural population; expanded technology in the classrooms; and initiatives to strengthen the transfer function.
