Phoenix College Institutional Effectiveness, 1999-2000.
Phoenix Coll., AZ.
This report presents Phoenix College's (PC's) 1999-2000 institutional effectiveness annual report. The 1998-99 academic year was most notable for an important upswing in enrollment, the opening of the Fannin Library, and a continued increase in the diversity of students. Enrollment increases were noted in both fall and spring semesters, with a year-end full-time student enrollment of 5822 (a 4.1% increase over 1997-98). Strong efforts from many college departments toward retention and customer service, along with ongoing curricular revision, were important factors in this increase. The Family Care Center opened and some classroom and administrative spaces were improved. The diversity of the student population is becoming a key characteristic of Phoenix College life. Technology planning and implementation continue to be important challenges for PC, as does the maintenance of stable or increased enrollment. This report also outlines the 1999-2000 college objectives for: institutional effectiveness/process improvement, which will emphasize outreach/enrollment/recruitment/marketing, long-range planning, staff development, budget process, room and class scheduling, and recruitment of diverse faculty and staff; assessment; technology; and campus climate. Included in the appendices of this report are PC's mission and institutional goals (rev. 1999) and Maricopa Community College District's governing board goals (rev. July 1999). (VWC)
