West Virginia Higher Education Report Card, 1999.
West Virginia State Coll. and University Systems, Charleston.
This report presents information for parents, students, staff, policymakers, and the general public on the quality and performance of public higher education in West Virginia. It opens with the strategic plans of the University System and the State College System together with narrative and statistical profiles of each of the 15 institutions that comprise the two systems. Chapters 2 through 7 display numerous indicators that specifically address the statutory goals, with the full text of each goal included at the outset of the chapters. For example, Chapter 2, on "Preparation," comprises such measures as the performance of West Virginia students on college entrance examinations and enrollment in developmental courses. "Access" (Chapter 3) displays estimated total college-going rates of West Virginians and shows the growing number of students assisted by financial aid. "Student Outcomes" (Chapter 4) presents retention rates, graduation/completion rates, and performance on professional licensure examinations, and Chapter 5 indicates some ways in which higher education is responding to the increasing need for "Economic and Workforce Development.""Productivity and Efficiency" (Chapter 6) includes information on the expanding use of technology and instructional expenditures, and Chapter 7 answers questions related to "Faculty and Staff." Completing the report are data on "Campus Security" (Chapter 8) and materials describing West Virginia's vital "Health Sciences and Rural Health Education Partnerships" (Chapter 9). The appendix defines the four Southern Regional Education Board categories that apply to West Virginia's public higher education institutions. (VWC)
