This document presents Prince George's Community College's (PGCC) institutional accountability report. It summarizes the following: (1) the college's mission, aspirational goals, significant trends in academics, demographics, and finance; (2) institutional assessment of instructional budget, African American full-time faculty, and students in good academic standing; (3) accountability indicators, which are included in spreadsheet format in this report's appendix; (4) funding issues such as a review of five-year trends in revenues, reallocation of funds, and cost containment; and (5) the college's five strategic initiatives, which include student success, economic development, community outreach, technology, and professional development. Some of the trends are outlined below. The largest growing fields of interest for students at PGCC are areas related to technology and technical training. Another fast growing trend is the growth of distance and on-line learning. The number of remedial students served by the college continues to grow. PGCC enrolls an ever-increasing number of minority students. A review of the trends in revenue over a six-year period shows a decline in the proportion of the budget contributed by the county. The Maryland Higher Education Commission asked that PGCC account for a decline in the percent of restricted budget allocation to instruction, from the academic year 1994-95 to the year 1995-96. The percent of African-Americans on the full-time faculty has remained relatively stable. It is clear that the success rate of African American students has increased over time. (VWC)
