North Carolina Community Coll. System, Raleigh.
This document is the result of a six-month process of obtaining input from a variety of community college stakeholders in North Carolina to help determine a direction for the state's 59 community colleges. Several hundred people were involved in developing these strategic initiatives, goals, and objectives. There are two main sections in the report: (1) planning assumptions, which include the areas of education and training, economic, demographic, political, social, and technology; and (2) the strategic initiatives of the North Carolina Community College System, which comprise five major areas--training the workforce for emerging jobs and a changing workplace, serving the lifelong learning needs of diverse populations, promoting quality and flexible programs and services, procuring and allocating essential resources for the system, and leveraging the power of technology. Within these five major areas are 15 main goals, each of which has between 1 and 5 sub-goals with an assigned deadline. Five appendices are included: (1) a glossary of terms used in the document; (2) a list of the members of the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges and their addresses; (3) planning council members; (4) advisory committee members; and (5) environmental scanning team members.
