Benchmarking New Designs for the Two-Year Institution of Higher Education.
Copa, George H.; Ammentorp, William
This report, which is intended for technical institutions planning to use benchmark processes to facilitate change, contains five benchmarking studies describing future-oriented practices at two-year technical and community colleges that meet the design specifications stated in the report "New Designs for the Two-Year Institution of Higher Education." In each study, one of five program design elements--learning process, learning partnerships, learning staff and staff development, the learning environment (technology), and learning finance--is examined through a case study of a program or institution. Those programs and institutions are as follows: Consortium for Workforce Education and Lifelong Learning at San Diego Community College in San Diego, California; Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, Wisconsin; Miami-Dade Community College in Miami, Florida; the Higher Education and Advanced Technology Center, which is a Colorado Community College and Occupational Education System innovation on the site of the former Lowry Air Force Base in Aurora, Colorado; and Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon, Illinois. Each benchmark study includes the following: contact persons, site selection, site background, process objectives, key features, impact, future directions, and design implications. A final chapter summarizes the studies and discusses their implications. The bibliography contains 78 references. (MN)
