Needs Assessment Survey: Gainesville College, 1998.
Gainesville College (GC) administered a Needs Assessment Survey in February 1998 to determine perceptions and attitudes about the college and areas that need improvement. Two groups were surveyed: high school counselors and principals, and community leaders such as Chamber of Commerce presidents and college trustees. There was a relatively high response rate from both groups. Among the high school counselors and principals, the highest ratings of satisfaction for GC occurred in areas such as financial aid services, administrators, guidance/counseling, and academic advisement. The lowest survey ratings concerned recreational facilities, student recruitment, and learning support services. Among the community leaders, highest ratings went to community and high school interaction, admissions office services, financial aid services, and preparation for transfer, while the lowest went to tutoring and academic support services, guidance/counseling services, academic advisement, student recruitment, and preparation for the job market. Includes data tables. Appendices include survey tabulations and forms for both groups. (YKH)
