Office of Special Services Annual Report, FY 1999.
Front Range Community Coll., Westminster, CO.
This report lists support services provided by the Westminster Campus Special Services Department to the Westminster, Brighton, Longmont, and North Boulder Campuses. The Special Services Department provides disability services, including interpreting for the deaf, tutoring, gender equity support, and special populations transition support. Retention is the main goal and outcome of a strong Special Services Department. The report also shows how these services support the four strategic initiatives established as the framework for planning and resource allocation at the Westminster Campus: (1) quality of student experience; (2) excellence of human resources; (3) college flexibility and responsiveness; and (4) cutting-edge technology. Special Services helped 98, or 41% of the 240 (unofficial numbers) students who were awarded degrees in Fiscal Year (FY) 99 and 45, or 10%, of the 456 students who received certificates in FY 99. The report includes a chart of statistics about students who received support in FY 99. Of the 932 students who received Special Services support, 275 had a general studies major, 114 had a nursing major, and 162 had an arts major. Thirty-five percent were male. The overall success rate for students receiving Special Services support was about 70%, with success being interpreted as a grade of A, B, C, or No grade. (JA)
