Minority Achievement Report.
Prince George's Community Coll., Largo, MD. Office of Institutional Research and Analysis.
This report summarizes the achievements of Prince George's Community College (PGCC) with regard to minority outcomes. Table 1 summarizes the undergraduate enrollment trends for African Americans as well as total minorities from fall 1994 through fall 1998. Both the headcount number of African American students and the proportion of African American students to the total student population has steadily increased over the period 1994-1998. Table 2 summarizes the success rates for both African American students and all minority students. The trends show that the success rate, as measured by graduating or transferring within 4 years, for both groups is higher for the 1994 cohort. Table 3 shows trends in African American full-time faculty and executive/managerial staff from fall 1994 to fall 1998. The percentage of African American full-time faculty continues to fall below the benchmark of 25%. The number of African Americans in executive/managerial positions on campus has grown considerably. Table 4 shows the percentage of African American students who have achieved success as a student in good standing over a period of years. The success rate of African American students has increased over time. Following the four tables, the report describes some of the activities PGCC has implemented to help minority achievement, organized under headings of activities designed to improve minority enrollment, minority retention and graduation rates, and minority employee recruitment and professional development.
