The Future of Howard Community College. Report of the Commission on the Future.
Howard Community Coll., Columbia, MD. Office of Planning and Evaluation.
In October, 1998, the Howard Community College (Maryland) board of trustees created a Commission on the Future (COF) to help the College identify emerging issues, prepare for the future, and develop a vision of the College's role in the 21st century. Task forces were established to conduct research, interview experts, and debate how the college should respond to seven emerging issues. These task forces, which were each co-chaired by business and community leaders, focused on the following areas: (1) creating a world class learning organization; (2) collaboration with other educational organizations; (3) collaboration with business and industry; (4) economic and workforce development; (5) preparing students as global citizens; (6) technology and education; and (7) communicating with current and new markets. This report provides a summary of the recommendations and advice of the seven task forces. Multiple objectives, and specific strategies to achieve each of these objectives, are presented for each area of interest. The report concludes with a list of the commissioners and task force members, and acknowledges those who have contributed to the preparation of this report. (VWC)
