Mendocino College 2000 Summary Report.
Mendocino Coll., Ukiah, CA.
This report summarizes the results of the initial phase of MC 2000, a process of deriving information from the population of Mendocino College's (California) service area for the purpose of guiding long-term institutional planning and decision-making. The report presents the data collected from public meetings and the telephone survey. It highlights results of the telephone survey: respondents have highly favorable attitudes toward the College; 92% of those surveyed have visited the College campus in Ukiah or the College Centers in Lakeport or Willits; 64.7% of those who have visited have done so to take courses, 19.4% for performing arts events, and 18.7% for athletic events; and areas for possible improvement include workforce training, increasing course offerings in Willits and northern Mendocino County, and meeting the needs of different racial and ethnic groups. The results of public meetings are: in Willits and Covelo, the prevailing theme was access, particularly a desire for more class offerings; in Ukiah, the prevailing theme centered around the College's image among members of the community, specifically a need for the College to focus on identifying a few major strengths upon which it can build; in Lakeport, the prevailing theme was the adequacy of facilities at the Lake Center, particularly concerns regarding library resources and access to programs and activities offered.
