Arizona University System: 2000 Report Card.
Arizona Board of Regents, Phoenix.
This annual report on the performance of the three Arizona universities, Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and the University of Arizona, informs the general public, elected officials, business leaders, and consumers of higher education about the universities' progress and milestones. In preparing the report, the universities complete a self-assessment for performance indicators in four categories: quality and effectiveness of undergraduate education, quality of instruction, demonstrating excellence and innovation, and utilization of resources; these are then graded by the Board of Regents relative to seven strategic factors established for improving the quality of Arizona higher education. The report notes that out of a total of 19 indicators used for the academic year 2000, 5 were superior, 12 were satisfactory, 2 showed a need for improvement, and none were unsatisfactory. Other sections of the report include information on the scope, size and character of the system; a review of the policy achievements of the Board of Regents in addressing issues of accessibility, learner-centered education, tuition and fees, undergraduate accountability, public-private partnerships, the governor's task force on higher education, the Arizona Partnership for the New Economy, and biennial budgeting; and campus highlights for each of the three universities.
