On August 18, 1995, California's San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) held a conference among district staff to discuss strategies for remaining competitive in the 21st century. This document presents the conference agenda and summarizes remarks made at the conference and conclusions reached by breakout groups. Comments from four presidents and provosts of SDCCD colleges are included, regarding trends at San Diego City College, programs and plans for the year 2000 at San Diego Community College Continuing Education Centers, recent trends at Miramar College, and five planning issues for the next century at Mesa College concerning integrated programming, global and multicultural education, student access and new technologies, student development, and facilities. Next, general remarks by the district chancellor on change in the SDCCD and the top priorities for the breakout sessions are provided. The remainder of the document offers conclusions from these sessions-five groups of which focused on the curriculum; three on instructional delivery systems; six on communications among faculty, staff, administrators, and the board of trustees; four on student services; one on administrative support services and the physical environment; and two on professional and staff development.
