West Virginia Higher Education Report Card, 1998.
West Virginia State Coll. and University Systems, Charleston.
This report card provides information to parents, students, faculty, staff, state policymakers, and the general public as to the quality and performance of public higher education in West Virginia. The report responds to six statutory goals that emerged from the Higher Education Advocacy Team meetings in 1992: (1) better preparing students to enter college; (2) providing greater access to higher education for all West Virginians; (3) preparing students to compete in a global economy; (4) focusing resources in those areas which offer the greatest opportunities for students and for job creation and retention; (5) using resources to their maximum potential to ensure that West Virginia higher education is more productive; and (6) compensating faculty and staff at competitive levels to attract and retain quality personnel. These six goals provide the framework for the information and data reported in this document. The document opens with strategic plans of the system, a narrative, and statistical profiles of each of the 15 universities, state colleges, and community and technical colleges. Chapters 2 through 7 include numerous indicators that specifically address the statutory goals. The remainder of the report provides data on campus security, and materials describing West Virginia's vital Health Sciences and Rural Health Education Partnerships. (TGO)
