Minority Achievement Report, 1996.
Howard Community Coll., Columbia, MD. Office of Planning and Evaluation.
In 1996 Howard Community College (HCC) (Maryland) developed three campus goals for the next 5 years for the enrollment, retention and graduation of minority students, and for the hiring of minority faculty and staff. These goals support the college's mission statement that guarantees all residents of its service area equal access, and its statement of beliefs that the college values the diversity of its student population. First, enrollment levels for minority students will reflect population percentages by race/ethnicity within the service area. Second, graduation and transfer rates for minority students will be equivalent to those rates for the student population as a whole. The college will reach parity in graduation and transfer for minority students in 5 years. Third, the college will meet its commitment to recruit, hire, and retain individuals who reflect the community's diversity. Specific objectives within each of these goals are also presented. College data related to enrollment, retention, transfer patterns, graduation, staff, faculty, and affirmative action are presented in tabular form, with each finding being presented for African Americans, Native Americans, Asians, Hispanics, other, and Whites. The report concludes with a description of institutional activities related to minority achievement. (JJL)
